I really want to read Monstress and Tigana. I have read about half of the others, and enjoyed about 3/4 of what I've read. Some of the ones I didn't like were well-written; I just didn't like any of the characters, or something else about them did not agree with me.

We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!
But do beware the toad burps.

I've read and loved all of those except the last. That shall be remedied.

I've actually read some of those.

I have read half of those standalone, and really want to read the other half.

It's interesting that a Diana Wynne Jones is in the list of good parent novels, because so many of her books feature bad parents as prominent characters (no doubt due at least in part to her personal experience). Usually there are good parents to balance them, but not always. She has clearly done a lot of thinking on the matter. DLOD is one of my favorites of hers.

I can hardly turn around without finding a 'favorite' DWJ; there are very few of hers that I don't love.

Same, but I definitely love some more than others. A couple of them end so sadly I can barely read them. And others are great books, but not comfort reads.
