And another month is over, which also means we are more than halfway through winter! It was already a little warmer over the last days and one of our chickens, Abigail, started laying eggs ❤ Now it’s 2 out of 3 but we are confident the smallest one will start soon as well!
What I read
The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan –> finished! My review is here. I didn’t like it and won’t continue with this trilogy. It was too dry and complicated and lots of parts were boring. I didn’t care for most of the characters either.
The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkovski –> finished! Enjoyed it much more than I thought! The main character is really cool, the stories are refreshing and different and there’s some funny scenes & dialogue as well. I want to know more about Geralt and already have the second book waiting.
Wit’ch War by James Clemens –> finished! Re-Read. Hm. I think I need a break from my Re-Read of this series. It’s still very magical, action-packed and definitely not boring.. But there’s lots of romancing here as well (no explicit scenes.. yet^^) and all relationships include teenage girls and older men. No, it doesn’t count if you magically make someone a couple of years older.. I don’t mind age gaps but if one person is under age, and I am talking about 13/14 years old, (STILL A KID, MATE!) and the other is 500 then that freaks me out!
Sourcery by Terry Pratchett –> finished! Re-Read. I didn’t enjoy it as much, which surprised me, as it features the wizards AND Rincewind, who are normally my favourites.. It just seemed to be a bit of a clusterfuck and went nowhere. Still funny parts though.
The Powder Mage Novella Collection by Brian McClellan –> 50% in. I finished the first 2 short stories and liked them a lot. Will read the first trilogy for sure!
Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames –> 25/492 pages. Not far yet, but I like it so far, this will sure be lots of fun!
What I want to read in August
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by Joanne K. Rowling –> I didn’t get to it last month, but will read it as soon as I can. I need more Potter and it feels better reading it in winter for some reason.
Swan Song by Robert McCammon –> I feel like something similar to The Stand. And I already read a sample of this and loved it. One of the characters is a Pro-Wrestler which is really cool!
Sword of Destiny by Andrzej Sapkowski –> A short story collection. Want to read this before I start with the actual series.
Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett –> Next in line on my mission to re-read the Discworld novels chronologically.
What I am watching
GAME OF THRONES! And way too much South Park at the moment.
To wrap this up, here is Randy, my pretty rabbit, showing off his fancy rabbit mustache!
