‘Tis that time of the season! Leaves are falling, wind is blowing and with a bit of exaggeration, the fireplaces are being lit. It’ s a perfect time to read! Plus, since we have about 3 months left in 2014, I feel like I have just enough time to catch up on my reading goal. (which, according to my Goodreads, I’m behind 4 books! Yikes!)
Here are some great books for you guys to look at!
*It’s here! The fifth and the final book to the Rick Riordan’s “The Heroes of Olympus” series. Although I’ve never been able to get into this book, people everywhere have highly anticipated the release of this book. So far, one day after its release, it has awesome reviews! So for those people who doesn’t like waiting for years for a conclusion, here is your chance to start this seemingly adventurous and epic series!
*Does any of you watch “Witches of East End?” Tiffany and I are suckers for supernatural tv shows and we stumbled into it because it was on Netflix. It turns out to be a very descent show! It kinda reminded me of “Charmed” a little bit but this has better CG, better story, and better looking people. So it is no surprise that I would love this book! and why not you? And if the witch part doesn’t convince you, the part about where she is thrust into the world of witches, ghosts, pirates, and all-too-handsome-healers might change your mind.
*Sometimes it’s inspiring to read about 12-15 year old kid’s crazy and out of the world adventures. The choices he/she has to make at such a young age makes me think about the not-so-great choices I’ve made but then I remember that it is written by a grown person and I let go of my guilt. ;-P This first book of the series “Summoner” tells a story about an apprentice blacksmith who discovers a hidden ability to summon demons from another world. Then he gets thrown into an academy of powerful nobles to train to fight a war against orcs with only his demon Ignatius for help. (reminds you a little of Bartimaeus series, anyone?)
*Putting an end to another series, “The Agency – Rivals in the city” is a Victorian woman detective novel originally published in the UK. In this fourth and last book, Mary Quinn, an independent minded woman for its time period, tires to solve a dangerous case while she hesitates the proposal from her long term love interest James Easton. It is described to be a well researched, action packed book and a perfect replacement for those who loves “Sally Lockhart” series. Here is an awesome article about how the book cover was made! Honestly, I thought it was CG but it is not! Click Here
*Summer is gone, but why should we put reading about mermaids, river witches, and sea dragons on hold?!! I was already sold with the description about them! And this amazingly beautiful cover helps a lot with the decision making. =D Enough said!
