My 'To Read' List Is Shrinking Too Fast!
Advertisements [?]
I read too much. On a bad week, I still manage to finish at least three books. This is not something I consider bad, mind, but as a result, I've begun running out of things to read. Instead of going to a bookstore and scouring the shelves for something (which, while a favourite pastime, is very time-consuming), I thought I would pose this query here.

Recommend some books for me, please. At the moment, I am looking for something with some pretty strict criteria:

I would prefer it to be a series, meaning at least three books. Not an absolute necessity, though.

Fantasy, but preferably not set in modern times. I'm bored of the numerous vampire and demon-fighting women set in the "real world".

Most importantly, I want a story with a strong, female protagonist. By strong, I mean she kicks serious ass.

That is the main thrust of what I am looking for. However, I welcome any and all suggestions (and if you want, take a look at a partial list of books I have read, found at this link if you would like some idea as to my tastes)

This is a desperate plea; my 'to read' list is rapidly shrinking...

My thanks in advance. :hi:
