I give you all of them 🙂
I read ‘The Atlantis Gene’ and it will definitely remain my only book by this author. I was not happy with it at all, although the premise sounded interesting and it was up to a good start. It was a mystery/supernatural adventure novel, but suffered from major plot holes, repetition, boring characters and incredibility. Also, Nazis are the mean guys. And the main characters have sex in the most inconvenient situation.
I finally read ‘Dune’ and while I liked the concept, the setting and the sandworms, I was a bit bored by long dialogues and descriptions. For a long time I couldn’t make up my mind whether I wanted to continue. Now I am sure that this is it for me and it will remain my only novel from the ‘Dune’-universe.
i will always take the chance to throw some sandworm art at you, this one by Luke Oram. Awesome, isn’t it? Reminds me of a sandworm version of the Deku Tree! Come inside, mate!
I read her whole ‘Chanters of Tremaris’-trilogy. While I still enjoyed the first book and thought it was a pretty decent, light Fantasy novel, it got weaker and weaker. The ending was not cool and the characters started acting like children.

And I am glad I did! Her ‘Dealing with Dragons’ was one of my highlights this year. Very cute, enjoyable and funny. For kids and adults alike.
I read ‘The Last Wish’ and ‘Sword of Destiny’. Enjoyed the first and half of the second book. The important half though. The one on which the rest of the series is based on, so I will get back to it eventually. I am also looking forward to the series!
I know, I know, you are probably tired about me gushing over those books. ‘Promise of Blood’ made my Top 3 this year and the short story collection that took place just before it was really great as well.
F yeah! Those book where the talk of the town this year and I think they definitely deserve it! Fun, fun, fun!
My first graphic novel, probably since I was a kid! Didn’t like it too much though, it was just average. I will try out some more graphic novels though and got lucky to start the new year with an awesome one!

‘Beyond Redemption’ was different and weird . Definitely worth it and I am eying the sequel.
I read ‘Stranger of Tempest’ and was very entertained during the first half. It got boring during the second, but the style of writing and the banter kept me interested enough to leave the sequel on my wishlist.

‘Black Sun Rising’ was on my list for years and years and I was very excited to finally give it a crack. Very disappointing though. I thought it was unnecessarily complicated and the characters weren’t intriguing enough. It’s sad, cause the world has potential.

That wasn’t a good start at all! ‘The Forgotten Beasts of Eld’ was missing something.. Review is coming up soon. Undecided yet, whether I want to try more of her works. Cause there is a lot and I might like something else.
