It seems to be “in fashion” to read books from different genres and quite a few of the youtubers I follow branch out more and more. Diverse books has become something to strive to read. Don’t misunderstand me, these are good things. There is only the issue of me usually not liking the books I read that aren’t in my genre. So, I read fantasy. That is … Continue reading Reading Only 1 Genre
Heroic and villainous acts have both played a part in Harry’s life, but his first year at Hogwarts shows such things are rarely simple. Unexpected villian or unlikely hero, everyone has choices to make. – Pottermore Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Theme 5 Chapters 16-17 What they (the trio) go through is unbelievable. Imagine being 11 years old and getting through the tasks made … Continue reading Heroes and Villains
Back in my own apartment! This is wonderful! And this means I have time for blogging (and probably more energy). So I got tagged by Jay @ This Is My Truth Now a month ago for this fun tag. Thank you! I loved reading your answers! Hopefully I’ll do as good 🙂 So let’s take a look at how I chose my books.

What made you want to pick up this book?
The Novice (Summoner #1) by Taran Matharu
I really like the cover of this book, and then I read the synopsis and my hopes were so high! The story is about a demon summoner and his journey. I was imagining gory necromancy and a beautifully crafted tale on the questionable line of good. It wasn’t exactly that. To be honest it wasn’t anything close to that. But well, that was why I picked this book up and I did like it when reading it. I needed some unoriginal stuff in between the Wheel of Time books.

Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy, but did.
Why did you read it in the first place?
Nomadplaneten by Emanuel Blume
I was a bit unsure about this, but it was the first (and so far the only) physical book offer I’ve gotten so it basically was impossible to say no. It’s a sci-fi, which is a genre I never really reach for, but I am so glad I did accept this one! It does a great job of covering very relevant subjects today in a futuristic world. Hopefully it will be translated into English. Sometimes it does pay off picking up something you normally wouldn’t pick up.
Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick a book at random.
How did you discover this book?
Neglected and friendless as Harry was at the Dursleys’, it did at least make him resilient. At Hogwarts, Harry finds himself both popular and admired, quickly becoming something of a ringleader within his trio of best friends. – Pottermore Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Theme 4 Chapters 12-15 So many adventures! I don’t know if I could have survived a first year at school … Continue reading Friendship
The Inquisition (Summoner #2) by Taran Matharu My rating: 3 of 5 stars Very similar style to the first one. Good story, interesting characters, easy to read, but not a masterpiece. I will however continue this story (it ended on a cliffhanger!). So this book picks up some time after the first book ended. Not much has happened for our main character, Fletcher, but a … Continue reading The Inquisition
