So since I didn’t finish any of the books on my last tbr, they will appear here again + one more. But let’s start with the books I’d like to finish. I have so little left in them so it shouldn’t be a problem. Books I’d like to finish The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan – I should seriously finish this one. It just drags so much! … Continue reading May 2017 TBR
Another episode of Merlin. Another very well-written episode of Merlin. Another episode that sets some building blocks to the groundwork. I hope you liked it as much as I did.
Prepare to have your heart broken. A druid girl caged, Merlin Saving her. She’s someone he doesn’t have to hide from. Oh this story is so beautiful…
How many awards are there flying around the blogisphere? I love it! Thank you so much for nominating me Closet Readers ♥
Who is your book best friend?
I’m supposed to pick one? I’d love to be friends with Ka-Poel (The Powder Mage Trilogy), Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass), Kitiara uth Matar (Dragonlance Chronicles), Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) or Nynaeve al’Meara (The Wheel of Time), but I don’t think I’m even close to badass enough to befriend them. If I had to chose one, I’d go for Hermione, I feel that we probably have the most in common.
Who is your book family?
Fourth time’s a charm! (or how does it go? 😉 ) I seriously cannot believe it. I will be going to London next year to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in the Palace Theatre. I. Will. See. The. Play!! Oh this is such a wonderful day! Spent the morning taking water samples cold, snowy and windy weather. Then the release happened whilst in … Continue reading I GOT TICKETS FOR CURSED CHILD ♥
Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst My Rating: 4 of 5 stars This is a debut? We have a new amazing author to follow! I think everyone has heard about this book, it fells like it’s been everywhere on BookTube and BookBlogs. The princess being betrothed to a prince but falling for his sister. But there is a lot more going on in these pages. … Continue reading Of Fire and Stars
Another Friday, another episode. This is an episode setting the first building blocks for so many things! A lot of secrets are revealed, and their consequences will show for a long time.
What a beginning! A knighting ceremony is going on and a stranger is killing patrols to get into the castle. Then throwing down a glove, a challenge to a duel, when reaching the ceremony. Arthur demands to get the identity of the knight, and under the helmet is a blond woman hiding.
So I was tagged by Avi @ Panic at the Bookstore quite some time ago now (almost a month!), and now I’m finally doing this! Jeez, why do all the lecturers decide on group works at the same time just before summer is coming? Anyway, thank you so much Avi for tagging me^^ Let’s do this!
- Put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs to play (no cheating).
- Tag 10 others to do it as well.
I will also put a book under each track, since this is a book blog and I feel like it^^ But what playlist should I chose? The one with my favourites probably – Best of the Best.
A serious episode this time around…
Such an innocent start to an episode. Merlin being bored and just uses some magic. The smile on his face, and the sadness. But then it is destroyed when a woman has seen the magic he performed! Luckily she didn’t see/realise it was him!
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin My rating: 2 of 5 stars After The Powder Mage Trilogy I have gotten used to audiobooks, and I looked through my tbr shelf to find a new one. This sounded interesting and I picked it up. It was ok. Nothing more. I think the story would have stood better if I had read it as a hard … Continue reading The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
The lovely Blame it on Chocolate tagged me for this tag – The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag. Thank you so much! And I do blame a lot of stuff on chocolate 😉
Disclaimer: I really dislike disclaimers, but they seem necessary. So, these are my opinions, and since all people are different we are entitled to different opinions. In other words, you probably love something I dislike, and vice versa. Try to be a nice and decent person^^ Happy reading!
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE
I read Divergent because of the hype but didn’t fall for it. Then I picked up the second because I had bought the whole trilogy. Cannot for my life remember what happened in it though. And I still haven’t read the last one. Kind of want to because, as I said, I did buy it, but it probably won’t happen.
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVE
Hate and love are such strong words, but what comes to mind is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I did like it a lot, I gave it 5 stars. In retrospect I’d give it 4, but I feel like I need to reread it to rerate it. It was a really good story, even though it had issues (anyone else want to talk about the trolley witch?!). And I do think that when you see it on stage your mind will be blown!
