Top Ten All Time Favorite Books

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

OMG, THIS IS HARD! Limiting it to the last 3 years doesn’t help me much because the kind of books I read changed drastically in 2011/12. So I pretty much read all my favorite books within the last 3 years. I just have to cheat on this one and list series instead of just single books. I feel bad already for the ones I don’t mention.

Top Eight Favorite Heroines From Books

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

This week is actually pretty hard for me. I don’t have a lot of heroines that I absolutely love. I often even prefer reading about guys/from guys’ POV. There are a lot of great female leads out there but those really awesome ladies that I would call favorites are rather rare.

Vin from The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

Reading all three Mistborn books was like seeing my little baby grow up and I still  can’t accept that she is all grown up now. How she turned from the girl, living on the street, trusting no one, to a woman who protects the ones she loves with all she’s got.

Art3mis from Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I was always kind of sad about how little you actually get to know her because she so secretive but what we do know makes her a really awesome character. (I really hope we get to see a lot more in the upcoming sequel) It’s nice to see some female geeks in books who have kickass skills. I admired her for not giving up her dream and work just because a boy comes along. You go, girl!

Half the World

by

Release Date: February 2015

Genre:

Series: Shattered Sea #2

Summary:

Sometimes a girl is touched by Mother War.

Thorn is such a girl. Desperate to avenge her dead father, she lives to fight. But she has been named a murderer by the very man who trained her to kill.

Sometimes a woman becomes a warrior.

She finds herself caught up in the schemes of Father Yarvi, Gettland’s deeply cunning minister. Crossing half the world to find allies against the ruthless High King, she learns harsh lessons of blood and deceit.

Sometimes a warrior becomes a weapon.

Beside her on the journey is Brand, a young warrior who hates to kill, a failure in his eyes and hers, but with one chance at redemption.

And weapons are made for one purpose.

Will Thorn forever be a pawn in the hands of the powerful, or can she carve her own path? (less)

Top Ten Fantasy Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read Yet

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

 

Okay, I can believe that I haven’t read these because I haven’t been reading Fantasy for that long but still… I really really want to get to these books SOON, hopefully this year.

Some of these are sequels I need to get to: Words of RadianceSiege and Storm  and Red Seas Under Red Skies. I don’t even know why haven’t read them yet. WoR is a really big book that I don’t want to read over weeks, but the rest? Could have already read them… I’ll get to them soon!

And then there is that endless list of series I want to start: The Warrior Heir (because I LOVED her other series), Finnikin of the Rock (because it sounds like a unique series), Lord of the Rings (duh!), His Dark Materials (don’t judge me!) and some about dragons: Seraphina and Eon because dragons!

 

Have you read any of these? Any I should read sooner rather than later?
