This month I’m participating in the Overlooked Genre challenge hosted by Closet Readers. This means I will read books that are a bit out of my comfort zone. A month without fantasy…how will I survive?

The synopsis intrigued me so I requested an ARC from NetGalley and was lucky enough to receive it.

A Huge thank you to Tammy from A Word About Books for tagging me. This tag seems like a lot of fun, so let’s start without a long introduction!
A CHARACTER APPEARANCE YOU MISREAD OR IMAGINED DIFFERENTLY?
There definitely are a few…but now when I need to know I can’t think of a single one.
A CHARACTER NAME THAT YOU’VE BEEN PRONOUNCING WRONG?
I know there is one character in the Inheritance series by Christopher Paolini that I read wrong and then I had such a hard time getting it right! I don’t remember which one now, but I switched place on two letters.
AN OVERUSED TROPE THAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

A Wizard’s Forge by A.M. Justice My rating: 3 of 5 stars This book came out just a few days ago but I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from Netgalley. Now I’ve finally finished it!

This is a monthly meme hosted by Clockwork Bibliophile. To read her original post CLICK HERE. There you can find the rules if you want to participate. But the basic concept is: Put your music library on shuffle, pair the first song that starts playing with a book and write a post about it.

A book you started but never finished…but want to finish. What stopped you from continuing to read it?
A Fearless Travelers’ Guide to Wicked Places. Sadly I’ve only got it as a protected PDF, which means I can’t read it on my Kindle – and reading on the computer is not as pleasant. But I really like the story and want to finish it soon.

A book you found interesting but would like to rewrite
Touch of Power. I loved the concept and the history. But the characters, oh the characters… The book needed at least a hundred pages more to get the characters right. I just wanted more from every single one of them.
A first book in a series that got you hooked
A Dance of Cloaks. This book, I bought it not knowing anything about it and I’m so thankful I did! The ride it took me on – David Dalglish has to be the best action writer there is. And when following a young assassin through the underworld, you have to be able to write fighting scenes.
