Series I’ve been meaning to start but haven’t
What series has been on your TBR the longest?
Those of you who know me, know that I don’t normally read much contemporary. (Fantasy is my comfort zone) This year, however, I’ve been reading a lot more contemporary, AND I’ve been enjoying it. *Queue gasps* So this week I decided to share with you the contemporaries that caught the eye of a fantasy lover. These range from middle grade to adult fiction.
These three I’ve read but REALLY enjoyed and they’re recent releases that I highly recommend.
It’s ironic that this is the topic while I’m hosting a readathon for reading short books!
So here is a list of the best short books I’ve ever read…
The Foretelling by Alice Hofman
Strong female lead, no romance, amazonian warriors – a must read.
Saga Vol 1 by Brian K Vaughan
The only graphic novel I have yet to enjoy and cant wait to continue
The Emporers Soul by Brandon Sanderson
Possibly the greatest short read on this list!!
Birth of the Firebringer by Meredith Ann Pierce
For unicorn lovers of all ages
The Outsiders by S E Hinton
A much loved classic
The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie
The most incredible sci-fi adventure of 2016
Alanna The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce
A Fantasy classic and the book that started my love for the genre
Summer of Sloane by Erin L Schneider
A sweep-you-up summer read that I read in 24 hours
Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson
Had me in stitches and touched my heart, such an important read.
I really like the idea of a seasonal TBR over a monthly one. Here are the ten books I hope to read this season. Do we have any in common? What’s on your list?
These are all books I’ve read in the last year or so that surprised me for various reasons.
I’m always hesitant when there’s a lot of hype surrounding a book, and I sort of expect to think it’s not as good as everyone claims. In this case I was so wrong, in the best way!
NOT FOR ME
I had looked at both of these books previous to blogging and written them off as not for me. Fast forward to post blogging me and I decided I had to give them a try. It’s books like these that make me so glad I became a part of the blogging community.
I didn’t know these authors before reading these books, and I just picked them up on a whim. I was blown away by all of them.
Of the classics Ive read I havent really enjoyed many of them, so I was hesitant about Anne. I listened to the audiobook and it made me smile and laugh and I am just so glad that I read this book.
BY THE SAME AUTHOR
I read Rae Carson’s Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy and love the first, really liked the second and just liked the third. So, going into Walk On Earth A Stranger I was hopeful but unsure. I LOVED it, even more than the first book in her other series. I can’t wait for book two.
I enjoy Illuminae and saw looked into both authors to see what else they had written. I saw that These Broken Stars was on audio on Overdrive and decided to give it a try. I figured it had some tough competition since it’s in space like Illuminae, but it was so good in its own way.
