    Assassin Nuns! Wow, I think that’s quite a unique one. Great list!!

      It is partially based on the Grave Mercy series and more generally based on the idea of religious orders dedicated to assassination, similar to something explored in A Song of Ice and Fire

    Great list! I love excellent world building, road trips & post-apocalyptic, and I enjoy books with spies & superheroes, too πŸ™‚

    And assassin nuns? Are there books like that? I’d definitely like to try one πŸ™‚

      I think post-apocalyptic and road trips and world building all go together. A good book can explore all of those issues at once.

      PS Try Grave Mercy!

    Nice! You must have read “Grave Mercy” for Assassin Nuns to make your list… if not, you should. πŸ™‚

      I have read it! And the sequel. And there are some similar themes running through Arya’s story in Dance With Dragons.
