March 2017 TBR

Question: Where did February go?

This month has just flown by. I haven’t spent the amount of time reading that I would’ve liked to, but the audiobook saved me. I have spent time on campus, group works, tutor training, summer job applications, travelling to and from my boyfriends place… It has been a hectic month. On top of that I had some motivational struggles in the beginning of the month, but I am back. Thank you TedTalks and Yale Open Courses ♥

I also decided to change the layout of my TBR post a little bit. What do you think? (If you realise the change 😀 ) Anyway, here are the books I’d like to read during this month:


Fata Morgana by Steven R. BoyettI didn’t read it last month so now it is highest on my list. Second World War and a pilot flies through a portal. I don’t know more and I am intrigued. Hopefully the story won’t become action-less after leaving a war behind.

The Shadow Rising by Robert JordanI am continuing the epic story in The Wheel of Time with the fourth book. I have already read quite a bit (200+ pages), but since it is a 1000 page book it will take some time.

Jaeth’s Eye by K.S. VillosoGot this from the author in exchange for an honest review. To be honest I hate the cover. It is simply awful. But it has such good ratings on Goodreads I really want to give it a chance (I could edit a cover for myself to look at..). Books two and three are also coming out in the beginning of April, which means it is a perfect time to pick up this series.

The Autumn Republic by Brian McClellanAn audiobook for my bus trips and when I do the dishes. The Conclusion to the Powder Mage Trilogy. Highly recommended for everyone! Cannot wait to hear the conclusion to this story!

Second Hand Book Haul

So… I did what you shouldn’t do. I went to a second hand bookstore. I didn’t plan on buying anything, I just heard about it and wanted to check it out. So I went there, found the English section, and I was mesmerised. Books for only a couple of euros!

I did restrict myself, and they didn’t have much in the fantasy section (especially not first books in a series). But these are the books I bought:


Chocolat

Chocolat by Joanne Harris

Price: 2.50 €

I have seen this movie so many times, and I cannot get enough of it. It is a beautiful story, with a wonderful pacing. A woman arriving in a small French village and opening a chocolaterie. To do this during Lent is seen a a threat to the good population of the village, and her different view of the world something inappropriate. This story, at least the movie, has left me thinking. I really hope the book lives up to the movie.

The Crimson Campaign

The Crimson Campaign by Brian McClellan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is so close to amazing it can get! But I didn’t want to give it 5 stars, since The Autumn Republic probably will blow my mind! Oh my expectations are high.

Thank you Goodreads for recommending me this series. I didn’t know what I was in for, but I don’t regret it a bit. This world, filled with politics, gunpowder and magic, is a piece of art. The second book wasn’t just a build up for the last, even if it did a lot of building up, but gave you so much story. You love, hate and wonder.

I cannot really say much since this is the second book in The Powder Mages trilogy, and I don’t want to spoil anything, just know that it was so good.

The hounds at our heels will soon know we are lions

Tamas’s invasion of Kez ends in disaster when a Kez counter-offensive leaves him cut off behind enemy lines with only a fraction of his army, no supplies, and no hope of reinforcements. Drastically outnumbered and pursued by the enemy’s best, he must lead his men on a reckless march through northern Kez to safety, and back over the mountains so that he can defend his country from an angry god.

In Adro, Inspector Adamat only wants to rescue his wife. To do so he must track down and confront the evil Lord Vetas. He has questions for Vetas concerning his enigmatic master, but the answers might come too quickly.

With Tamas and his powder cabal presumed dead, Taniel Two-shot finds himself alongside the god-chef Mihali as the last line of defence against Kresimir’s advancing army. Tamas’s generals bicker among themselves, the brigades lose ground every day beneath the Kez onslaught, and Kresimir wants the head of the man who shot him in the eye.
