Game of Thrones got you down? Waiting in despair for Doors of Stone? Do you fear getting caught up in a fantastical world and then discovering that the series isn’t complete yet? The fantasy genre has loads of books and subgenres to offer, as well as authors with varying writing speeds. Below are a few of my favourite fantasy series that are complete and totally binge-able.
A confession: I'm terrible at keeping up with my NetGalley books. I can be super excited to read something, but ultimately I'm more tempted by physical books than eBooks. Despite this, I have some amazing stuff just waiting for me on my Kindle. I pulled a couple of titles here to not only show off the books I have, but to encourage me to pick them up.
For YALC this year, I thought I’d do something a little different from my standard book haul or uninteresting list. Behold, The YALC Diaries! Although I’m beginning this post after Friday’s festivities have come to an end, I’m planning to write this up as a play-by-play of my favourite book event. Here we go!
Caraval was one of the biggest releases of 2017. It was the book everyone was talking about for months! Fully caught up in the hype surrounding that book, I read Caraval and was actually pretty disappointed -- I even listed it as one of my most disappointing books of 2017. However, I fully acknowledge that the hype was probably the contributing factor to my unenjoyment. When Legendary was released, I was determined to read it early and beat the hype.
Happy Friday! Why is it that four day work weeks always feel so long? I feel like time has been absolutely dragging! This has been a really interesting week for reading. I’ve had some ups and some downs, but it was rounded off nicely with a lovely author event last night! Bonus: I have something exciting going on next week! First things first, I rounded off my own readathon! Although I had a TBR of 4 books, I only managed to finish two. However those books were both pretty sizeable and I ended up enjoying them both.
It’s the beginning of a new year and time to set your new reading challenges. Regardless of whether you track your reading through Goodreads or via spreadsheet, whether you have decided to stick to a single genre or expand your horizons throughout the year, many readers have a reading goal they want to reach by the end of the year. How do you track your reading habits?
So I'm still on hiatus, but I did do a reading vlog this week. I thought I'd share it with you guys, because I did a lot of reading! Featuring: fierce heroines, loud church bells, and thrashing kitty tails!
