I’m pleased to say that so far this year I have read 73 books out of my target of 100 (according to Goodreads that’s 17 books ahead of schedule). I have decided that it’s time to share with you a list of my favourite reads from various categories and genres. I recommend every book on this list and absolutely insist that you immediately buy and read all of them.
Favourite New Fantasy Series
Brent Weeks is a genius. His Lightbringer series is completely refreshing and individual, the magic system is based on converting, or drafting, light to make tangible things. You can read my full review of the first book, The Black Prism, here. There are currently three books released (all over 700 pages in length) and book four is due to be release on October 25th this year! Excited doesn’t even cover it.
Welcome to the ‘Mid-Year Book Freak Out’ Tag. This seemed like a nice way to wrap up the first half of the year so here we go!
1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2016.
I absolutely love this series. It has a great magic system and I flew through the 700+ pages. You can check out my review here. Read more
I am addicted. Addicted to Raye Wagner’s wonderful writing.
Last month, I saw on YouTube that Raye Wagner was offering a free e-copy of her book, Curse of the Sphinx, if you signed up to her newsletter. I checked it out, signed up and received not only Curse of the Sphinx but a free copy of her novella Origins of the Sphinx as well. I was chuffed but didn’t get around to reading them for a couple of weeks. Read more
I cannot quite believe it is July already! My two most anticipated book releases of 2016 are happening this month and I am so happy! Here are the books I hope to read this month!
Demigods and Monsters is the second book in Raye Wagner’s Sphinx series. I started the first book, Curse of the Sphinx, three days ago and have devoured it and the accompanying novella Origins of the Sphinx. I’m already part way through this book and enjoying it immensely. Read more
