The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan My rating: 5 of 5 stars This was so much better than the first one! Without spoilers (since this is the second book in The Wheel of Time), everything in this book was better. The characters were more interesting, the plot stronger, the world more layered. So if you are as me and didn’t feel it after the first … Continue reading The Great Hunt
The review of this episode was first posted on Ampersand Princess’ blog, which does not exist anymore. However, here is my part of the review:
I love the first episode! It is so innocent and the humour exactly what I want it to be. I remember when I saw it for the first time, I didn’t know anything about the Arthurian Legends but I fell, head over heals, for the characters and the humour.
This little test was created by Eve Messenger’s Otherwordly Endeavors but I found it on Drink Coffee and Read Books blog and thought it looked like fun. So I decided to do it! How it works: Mark an ‘x’ for each statement that applies to you. [ ] 1. In lines or at doctor’s offices, when everyone else around me is tapping out messages on their cell phones, my face … Continue reading How to tell if you are a Book Junkie
Doctor Who: The American Adventures by Justin Richards My rating: 2 of 5 stars Release date: October 25 2016 I received this as an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All that Glitters – California 1849 The first story in this little collection. I won’t write a longer synopsis since the story only was about 30 pages long (It would be impossible to avoid … Continue reading Doctor Who: The American Adventures
Four groups. Three books per group. One will be Reread. One will be Rewritten. One will Burn…
(I had the epic action movie trailer voice in my head while writing that.) So, I have not been tagged to do this but hey, it sounds like a fun one so I’ll just go for it! What I did to chose books were that I put my Goodreads Read shelf on random and took the books from the beginning, three at a time.
Burn: City of Bones
Rewrite: Prince Caspian
Reread: The Book of Speculation
This was an easy start. I wasn’t a fan of City of Bones, Prince Caspian wasn’t as good as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Book of Speculation is one of the best books I’ve read this year. Yes, you should read it. And if you don’t have the time, listen to it, the audiobook is so good.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
“‘They say Aslan is on the move. Perhaps he has already landed,’ whispered the Beaver. Edmund felt a sensation of mysterious horror. Peter felt brave and adventurous. Susan felt as if some delightful strain of music had just floated by. And Lucy got that feeling when you realise it’s the beginning of summer. So, deep in the bewitched land of Narnia, the adventure begins.
They opened a door and entered a world–Narnia–the land beyond the wardrobe, the secret country known only to Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. Lucy is the first to stumble through the back of the enormous wardrobe in the professor’s mysterious old country house, discovering the magic world beyond. At first, no one believes her. But soon Edmund, Peter and Susan, too, discover the magic and meet Aslan, the Great Lion, for themselves. And in the blink of an eye, they are changed forever.”
Why did I chose this book?
A lot of people are doing blitzes and cover reveals and book tours at the moment. And now I am joining in. Looking for something new to read? How about 800 pages for 99c? I might even go for that deal myself.

In a battle of wills,
of the gods of old.
For each his revenge,
will he forfeit his soul.
On the chessboard of blood,
will their narrative play.
Aged, innocent lives,
revenge claims her way.
Out of hate will come love,
and love will come hate.
For immortal and man,
have entwined their damned fate.
The battle between the Titans and the gods of old did not end with them. The demand for revenge has dripped down into the next generation.
Twins, Marcus and Nicolas, heirs to the throne of the gods and sons of the last remaining Titan, learn that the purpose of their existence is to fulfil a prophecy born of hate and despair. They must battle for Pandora’s daughter’s heart, a girl lost to the human world and unaware of her hidden heritage. For four hundred years Marcus and Nicolas have only been allowed to touch the edge of their soul mate’s dreams, but the time of the prophecy has come.
For Samantha, life has been nothing more than a series of misfortunes and heartbreaks. For years, she has kept her heart locked away, but change is rolling in like a tidal wave. She is now forced to discern the thin line between love and lie, myth and reality, and it would seem that time is running out …

But what is Merlin? According to IMDB it is a fantasy adventure drama created by BBC that ran from 2005-2012. According to us, it is … Continue reading Event: Merlin – Watch Along

Loads of great reviews and bookish goodness.
What was the last milestone you reached?
Last month I read A Wizard’s Forge by A.M. Justice. It is a mix between fantasy and science fiction, and while reading there were some things about the world that left me confused (it was so not stereotypical). However, now I’ve gotten answers! This Week: AM Justice “human survival in a marginal environment was not a story I was interested in telling. I wanted to write a revenge narrative involving … Continue reading Sunday Shoutout #7
