I'm a little behind on the stuff that she's written post- Lady Knight, though. I should probably fix that...
I am glad I found them when I was a kid, because I'm not sure I would like them as much if I came to them as an adult. As much as I love the world and many of the characters, the writing is not of a style I prefer now, among other things. There are things I can forgive in old favorites that I'm less forgiving of in new books.
I still wait with bitten nails for each release - I love everything Tamora Pierce puts out!
Then later, I went to the public library in MY town and found the other Pierce books (the other library didn't have them). I read the Kel series first, not knowing Alanna came first chronologically.
And then Alanna, and Diane, and the Circle Opens series, Aly, Beka and all the rest.
And I LOVE them all.
I definitely re-read whenever I'm feeling down, and I'm always pleased to discover they still make me laugh and my heart beat faster!
I'd seen Terrier on the shelf in Borders, but wasn't willing to pay full price for a book I knew little about by an author I'd never read anything by, so I waited for it to show up in Half Price Books, but when it seemed it never would, I bought Squire and Lady Knight instead and started there. Having read the later books first and knowing what was coming, I spent the entire time I was reading the Immortals books waiting impatiently for Daine and Numair to finally get together.
I'm such a devoted fan that I paid close to 80 dollars CDN for a hard cover of Briar's Book. I don't regret it at all!
> 30 I envy you. I wish I had all of her books in hardcover. I have a copy of Squire signed but I found it on a fluke in a second hand shop and bought it for four bucks. I still haven't been able to find Alanna's books and Diane's books in Hardcover. I haven't got the money to buy them the way I did Briar's book. Once I'm established I'll buy it then.
when I heard about Page being published I jumped ahead and bought it right away. That was my first English version of an Tortall book, I could have never waited for a translation. Now I have all Tortall books in English and the Daine and Alanna series in German, too.
I am now 30 but I still love and treasure Tamora's books. And I read them again and again.
I reread at least one quartet a year, sometimes more. I own all of the Tamora Pierce books, and they have their own shelf in my room, as will they forever.
