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 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.
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.
Authors that you’ve recently found and would like to read more of in the new year
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.
The Magicians’ Guild by Trudi Canavan My rating: 4 of 5 stars I went into this book not really knowing what to expect (and I had bought the whole trilogy so I was praying it would be good), and it was really good. The story is following Sonea, a young girl living in the poorer part of the city Imardin, as she out of nowhere … Continue reading The Magicians’ Guild
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:
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.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas My rating: 5 of 5 stars Oh my god. Oh. My. God. Oh my god!! This book, what did I just read? The twists and turns. The story. The characters. I have laughed, been angry and felt both hope and despair. I understood Feyre in her choices and her feelings. I am impressed of her … Continue reading A Court of Mist and Fury
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.
The Keeper of Portals by V.S. Nelson My rating: 3 of 5 stars Release date: January 28th 2017 I got this as an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. The first thing I want to say, and the one comment I couldn’t get out of my head, is that this is put as YA, but it reads like a Middle Grade. From … Continue reading The Keeper of Portals
