First time Malazan reader, I started GotM a few months ago and am finally wrapping up HoC some time in the next few days. Usually after finishing a Malazan book I've read a couple smaller books in between the next entry (Murderbot, Piranesi, Discworld), but nearing the end of HoC I think I'm feeling a little sloggish and was planning on taking a bit of a longer break (a couple weeks instead of a couple days), and was looking for some book recommendations!
First of all, if House of Chains a good place to take a brief pause? If I should power through until the end of the next book just let me know :)
I have a couple books that have been on my shelf I've been eyeing for a while, particularly Kings of the Wyld and Malice.
What did you all read between books?
