Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan

Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan

This is the first book of Riyria Revelations and contains two stories to this great series. I loved the action, the writing, the character development, everything about this book is glorious. I totally see myself re-reading this in the future; multiple times.

Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep

Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep

I very much enjoyed this story. I was just swept away by what was happening to Evie and those around her, while also at key times was very much worried for her. Even though she’s the main character and we know she will survive, the fact of her survival being very likely completely left my mind.

2019 Favorite Books

This list is not all inclusive, but a few of the books I really enjoyed and wanted to mention again. There is one series on here I’m wondering if maybe I did hear about and just wasn’t ready for it at the time, or maybe I was living in a hole or something at the time of it’s hype. Keep reading to see what series I’m talking about.

Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews

Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews

Kate is investigating a magical being who has apparently become a Mary. Similar to Typhoid Mary, this is a person who has been infected and spread the virus. This investigation gets difficult, and is not made easier by the tension between her and the Beast Lord, and is further complicated by her employment by the Order.

I’m not one for waiting for the first of the new year to start making improvements for myself, or life in general. For a few of these I just thought of them, or the new year just makes a nice starting point.

January TBR

January TBR

Well, I got a few books for Christmas, and have several more veteran books on my shelf waiting for their chance to be read. Let’s see what I can get to in January. I’m still going to pick only 6 books, I figure this will leave room for a mood read or 2. I’m also going to not roll over my TBR into the next month. I mean I’m not leaving any books unstarted, on my TBR for the next. I usually don’t get a chance to go back, so if I am able, I can just pick one of the books up as a mood read.

Binti by Nnedi Okorafor

Binti by Nnedi Okorafor

Binti is less than 100 pages, so you will have nearly no issues finishing it in one day. (Notice I said nearly, because you never know what life will throw at you.) The other reason you may be propelled through the story is wondering where it all leads or seeking answers to some questions you may have about the plot.
