I am so excited for my list this summer! This is what I plan to read:
Words of Radiance. Stormlight Archive 2 / Brandon Sanderson
ReRead. I am already in the middle of my Way of Kings-ReRead and still love it so much! My favourite parts are definitely Kaladin’s chapters, but I even like to read about Shallan. She only got a bit annoying in this second book. I wonder whether I still feel the same about her. Dalinar’s is probably my second favourite perspective! And I will keep a very close look on all the interlude chapters as well as what Wit is up to 😉
Oathbringer. Stormlight Archive 3 / Brandon Sanderson
Hype Hype, I can’t wait! The book is sitting on my shelf already! Slightly annoying, that the colour is more grey than white this time and it doesn’t fit with my other versions. Who did this?! But anyways, that won’t make me less excited to read it! I will not read any ‘Oathbringer’ reviews until I have finished it. I don’t know anything about it yet. Not even who the focus is on this time. I heard it was supposed to be Szeth or Eshonai or Dalinar. Probably Dalinar, with that name.. But I want to stay ignorant until I pick it up 😉
The Crimson Campaign. Powder Mage Trilogy 2 / Brian McClellan
I am so excited for this as well! Priority Read after my ‘Summer of Sanderson’
The Autumn Republic. Powder Mage Trilogy 3 / Brian McClellan
Let’s do them both together, so I can start with the new trilogy soon as well. I might also read all the short stories I don’t know yet. Yes, this is how much I LOVE this series.
Empire in Black and Gold. Shadows of the Apt 1 / Adrian Tchaikowsky
The next long series I want to jump in. I decided I like the writing enough to commit to it. The characters in the sample I read were all interesting and it looks to be really epic, so bring it! Also, Bookstooge said it wasn’t as philosophical and rambling as the Malazan books, so that’s the best argument for it 😀
The Forgotten Beasts of Eld / Patricia A. McKillip
That’s a short read I can squeeze in and I already read a couple of pages. It’s great, I love the animals! And the main character is really arrogant & ignorant, I am excited to read about her becoming a decent person (hopefully).
Weird Sisters / Terry Pratchett
ReRead. Excited to read this again, as it was always one of my favourite Discworld novels! Go witches, go!
A Darker Shade of Magic / V. E. Schwab
This is going to be a buddy read with my friends Christian, Ina and Anncatrin from Germany! Can’t wait! And also, if anyone wants to read it with us, you are very welcome to join! I will do another separate post in a couple of weeks. We plan to start in January.
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince / Joanne K. Rowling
ReRead. Almost done here. I don’t remember book 6 & 7 very much because I only read them both once.
Dragonflight. Dragonriders of Pern / Anne McCaffrey
Ina just mentioned it in one of her posts and I feel it’s a crime I haven’t tried those books out yet. How can I call myself DRAGONS & Zombies if I have never read a series about a planet full of dragons?! Let’s start this!
