Top Ten Books For Readers Who Like Fantasy

Gah, I loathe these lists. I don’t like comparing things this way, specially if its comparing books to other books. It is done so often now. I also feel like I do these lists all the time… Be sure to go to the bottom on the list or the side bar and join my book giveaways for Silver Shadows and Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead.

1. Sevenwaters series by Juliet Marillier. Purely an amazingly woven bit of fantasy. The first book is one of my favourites and I just spent nearly $50 on a mass market paperback copy of the second because my series wouldn’t have been perfect without that copy (fingers crossed it is what it says it is.)

2. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. Just a magical slow paced story. Might be everyone’s thing, but its amazing to me.

3. The Cursed Kingdoms by Emily Gee. This series seems to have a few negative reviews with it but I don’t really see why. It has huge potential to get really good towards the end. People don’t give stories the chance to build themselves up these days.

4. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. While I didn’t like the end to this book so much I really liked the perspective and angle that this story took on one of my all time favourite stories.

5. The Forgotten War by Howard Sargent. If you can get through epic stories I think that you will really enjoy this one.

6. The Queen of the Tearling series by Erika Johansen. I have started the second and I am so excited to see where it all goes.

7. Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. Don’t take its reading grade label to heart, it is a wonderful series and I need to pick up the next one already.

8. The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. Very interesting take and distortion of disney stories we all know and love.

9. The Returned by Jason Mott. Now again I don’t think everyone will like this because its slow but if you like the slow ones you should give it a go.

10. Dreamfire by Kit Alloway. While not the best thing I have read, the idea is really interesting and I shall be reading the next one to see where this story will be going.

Two Years Old + Giveaway

2nd_birthday_cake

 

Well guys, its that time of the year again. On this day two years ago I took the plunge and signed up for wordpress to start reviewing the many books I read.

I have loved every minute of it.

I know I said this last year but my feelings havent changed. I am so grateful to this community. You take in people without a thought, all because we all share this deep love and passion for books. I can honestly say that no one in my face to face life feels this way about them, but you guys do and that make you my book family. It means so much to me to have somewhere to go that everyone feels the same way I do and is completely understanding of me.

Since last year I have gained 138 new follows with a total of 197. That’s more than double the amount of follows I gained in my first year of this blog. I know I am still not a very big blog but each and everyone one of you mean so much to me. Everytime I gain someone new its an addition to my family. It lets me know that other people feel the same way as me and I am not just talking to myself out there. If it were not for you guys I would not be getting the books Penguin are always sending me now (which is just so exciting), and I would not have a place where I feel this at home.

From the bottom of my heart I wish to thank the entire blogging community, from my follows to those I haven’t even met yet. Thank you.

As a thank you to you all I would also like to host two giveaways! One for Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead and one for Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead. Originally these were going to be Australia only giveaways since it will cost me at least $20 to post things over seas, but since it looks like I will be getting a job at the end of next week and since you guys mean so much to me I have decided to make them world wide contests. They will run for one month, mostly because I need to make sure I have enough money to send them out even if I don’t end up getting a job.
