Hello everyone! Oof, what a week. Well, I’ve started my qualifying exam and there was some panicking, but I’m better now ;-). I was able to finish the couple of review books published early this month, and now I have time to read some for-me books :D. This coming week is going to also be insanely busy because I have a conference to go to before GenCon :D.
I started Magic Rises this week since it came out a couple weeks ago! I’m so excited, I love this series :D. The start has been awesome since we’ve headed to Europe and get to see how life post-Shift is over there. I had an amusing moment when I wondered why they weren’t flying there (boat trip takes two weeks!) and then realized it would be really bad to be in a plane when a magic wave hit >.> Doh!
I finished Codex Born early this week. I had been aiming to finish before the release, but then I found out that my review copy was missing about 30 pages D: . I was planning to buy my friend a book anyway, so she let me read those pages from hers ;-). I freaking loved this book. I do wish that it had been written from Lena’s perspective, but the Lena diary entries were so much fun to read :D.
Omg, I’m listening to The Lies of Locke Lamora on audio and it freaking rocks! I highly recommend this one for audio. The narrator does all the different voices quite well and he makes the swearing sound hilarious! I wish that I was driving more so that I could listen to it faster haha.
And in case you missed it, these were my posts this week:
I gave Codex Born 4 stars, highly recommended series!
The White Forest also earned 4 stars, a very lovely gothic fantasy ;-)
I asked whether list style reviews are easier to read and write, since they are for me!
River Road got 4.5 stars, loved this second book :D
We talked about the books we wish had had sequels for Top Ten Tuesday!
I gave The Weight of Souls 3.5 stars, such a cliff hanger!
