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.
