February 2017 TBR

This upcoming month (where did January go?) I will only have a list of three books. I realised four books a month, especially with Wheel of Time, isn’t really possible. If I have the time however, there will be more books of course! But let’s get on with my plans for the upcoming month. Here they are:

Fata MorganaFata Morgana by Steven R. Boyett and Ken Mitchroney

This book, or ARC, is a World War II story mixed with fantasy (If I’ve understood it right). I just had to ask for it on NetGalley, and to my amazement I was approved! (I am still way too surprised when I get approved…)

The story follows Captain Farley, and starts with him on a bombing mission over eastern Germany. Somehow, the bomber he’s on falls into another world, and he gets mixed up in a centuries long conflict among the ruins of a once great civilisation. There is also promise of a love story between the pages.

I really hopes this lives up to my expectations.

Ringing in the New Year Tag

It is the end of January, but I do not think it is too late to do this tag. I was tagged by Blame Chocolate, thank you so much! I found her blog not long ago and I think even more people should find it. It’s a beautiful space on the internet.

But now, let’s get on with the tag, shall we?

Best book/series you’ve read in 2016?

They are not even fantasy! But they were amazing reads and recommend them to everyone.

Merlin Watch Along – S01E10: The Moment of Truth

Still continuing by myself. If you want to join, one episode with a review once a week, just tell me 😀 However, here is episode 10 of the first season:


This is the episode our heroes leave Camelot. Merlin’s mother comes in search of help, since her village is harassed by raiders. However, the village is outside the borders of Camelot and Uther cannot help without risking starting a war. Merlin feels it is his duty to go with his mother and help defend the village. Gwen and Morgana decides to come with him, as a thank to everything he’s done for them, and Arthur shows up after they’ve travelled halfway there.

Rebolgged: Book Reviewing Isn’t Simple – The Dark Truth of Author Bullying

Originally posted on Happymeerkatreviews:
*Ok, I’m honestly a little scared of posting this as I don’t want any more harassment from the wrong people… The above picture pretty much sums up how I feel today.  I’m exhausted and drained from all the horrible things that have happened recently.  I’ve faced cold distant treatment, attacks on facebook and now I’ve been bullied privately, all because I… Continue reading Rebolgged: Book Reviewing Isn’t Simple – The Dark Truth of Author Bullying

The TBR Shame Tag

I didn’t get tagged, but I read the post Jade @ Drink Coffee and Read Books had made (back in November) and decided I wanted to do this as well. Especially since I finally have my bookshelves in my flat! However, I won’t be near her amount of unread books (go over there and look at the crazy amount!), I simply don’t own enough books for that…

Anyway, I did get quite a few books on this list. And here they are:

Merlin Watch Along -S01E09: Excalibur

I am sad to say Ampersand Princess had to step down from our #MerlinWatchAlong. However, I have decided to continue. And this also means if someone feels like joining feel free! It is just a short review of one episode a week. If you want to know more, CLICK HERE or ask me 🙂

So let’s go on, here is My thoughts on episode 9:


This is such a good episode! A knight risen from the dead challenges knight after knight. All of them die, but the risen knight cannot be killed. Then the reveals. Who Nimueh is and her connection to Uther and Arthur. This episode has it all.

Under the Mistletoe – Top 10 characters I’d like to kiss

I saw this over at My Parisian Bookshelf, and I thought I’d borrow the idea. It has most certainly been done before, but that won’t stop me! So here are the top 10 fictional characters I’d like to kiss (in no particular order):

A Court of Mist and Fury

After being halfway through the second book in Sarah J. Maas’ ACOTAR series I think it is impossible to not put Rhysand on this list. There are a lot of other characters I also could put here, but trying to keep to one per book.
