I blame the following evil bloggers for making me aware of this tag:

Re-enchantment of the World

I think you are supposed to take books from your TBR, but as mine is under 5, I just take books from my wishlist.

Here you go:

Dragonsbane by Barbara Hambly

Dragonbane

A dragon book, that I want to read soon. I’ve tried a sample and liked it enough to consider it. It’s an older one. I find that I need to dig a little deeper at the moment to find interesting books.

Rose Daughter by Robin McKinley

rose daughter

I might have searched Fantasy novels starting with an ‘R’? But anyways.. I’m glad I did, because I found this one, which is a ‘Beauty and The Beast’ retelling! I love those.. And I am so sure I’ve read McKinley before. Some book about a thief? It’s been so long ago, but the name sounds familiar.

Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman

anansi boys

Like almost every Gaiman book, this is on my wishlist as well. I did like ‘American Gods’ and this is a sequel, so I’m game.

God’s Last Breath by Sam Sykes

gods last breath

I’ve been bitching about the second book, but still want to finish this trilogy. Book 1 was really cool and I hope that the last part will be more like it again.

Old Man’s War by John Scalzi

old mans war

This was mentioned a lot for a while and I checked it out. Sounded cool and it is still on my wishlist. SciFi is not my priority so it will probably stay there until I feel like it. But it’s pretty much at the top of my (small^^) SciFi list.

The Ninth Rain by Jen Williams

ninth-rain

Almost all of the author’s books are on my list and I only hear people getting excited about them.

Spirit Gate by Kate Elliott

spirit

I’ll try her next! Because she is one of the bigger Fantasy names I haven’t tried yet and if I like her writing there’s SO much for me to pick from.

& (I’m not spelling out the ‘and’!!)

Zoo City by Lauren Beukes

Recent find. Sounds different & interesting. And it did win a lot of prizes so maybe it’s a winner for me as well.

Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson

oathbringer

The heaviest book I own. I’ve been thinking about it lately. Maybe it’s time again to pick it up (and train my arms at the same time!).

Moon’s Artifice by Tom Lloyd

moons artifice

I liked Tom Lloyd’s writing and would like to try more.

Between the Shade and the Shadows by Alexander Coleman

between shade

Everything that features animal companions has my attention. Love the cover!

Insomnia by Stephen King

insomnia

Only one of many King’s I haven’t read yet. This will be a life-time’s project.

Enchanted Forest Series by Patricia C. Wrede

searching

Okay, I am cheating a bit here by naming the whole series, which I started already. I am up to book 2 now.

Starless by Jacqueline Carey

starless

I will always put new books by Jacqueline Carey on my wishlist. And this got lots of love already!

  1. Hah! Serves you right πŸ˜‰ Nice collection btw, I really enjoyed Old Man’s War and Rose Daughter. McKinley writes beautifully, and she wrote another Beauty and the Beast retelling… Anansi Boys was less fun than American Gods IMO, but still decent – I’ll be waiting to hear your thoughts on it!

  2. Oh I love Robin McKinley’s books. Her writing tends to be very descriptive so the pace is a little slow, but the stories are always great. I read Rose Daughter way back when but have since forgotten what it’s about.

    1. Haha, I don’t like having books lying around for too long, makes me feel under pressure to read them asap & takes away some of the fun. I keep it around 5 – that number seems to work well for me πŸ™‚

      My wishlist is super long though^^

      1. I can see that, but for me the greater stress is worrying that I won’t have a new book to read when I want one. I guess that’s why my physical TBR is closer to 25 books at the moment…

      2. That’s a good point! I don’t think of ebooks as readily as paper books, though, when I worry about having reading material. (Truth be told, I don’t think about ebooks as much as paper books, period. I am constantly forgetting that I have an ebook in progress…)
