Tag: Three Things

Seen on Cupcakes and Machetes, thank you πŸ™‚

It’s simple and I haven’t done tags as often as I thought this year, so here we go:

3 READ ONCE & LOVED AUTHORS:

K. D. Edwards – I read ‘The Last Sun’ this year and became a fan instantly! Now I can’t wait for the sequel which will be published next year.

Katherine Arden – ‘The Bear and the Nightingale’ is probably my highlight this year. So far at least.

Rebecca Levene – I was blown away by ‘Smiler’s Fair’. This novel is really a hidden gem and should be much more popular if you ask me. Fantasy at its finest!

3 TITLES I’VE WATCHED BUT HAVEN’T READ:

I love those three movies and don’t want to read the books/short story ever.

3 CHARACTERS YOU LOVE:

Kaladin Stormblessed from Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive. He’s not perfect but I have such a soft spot for him. Love reading about all of his adventures. I feel like I know him so well. And he’s a badass.

The Fool from Robin Hobb’s books. How can you not love him? One of the most complex & interesting & different characters I’ve come across.

Sorcha from Jennifer Fallon’s Sevenwaters series. She’s so brave and loyal and such a good person in general. Those books made me emotional^^ It’s nice to read about non-sassy ladies for a change.

3 BINGED SERIES:

3 UNPOPULAR BOOKISH OPINIONS

‘Elantris’ is Brandon Sanderson’s worst novel by far.

I don’t approve of having more than 5 unread books/ebooks at home.

‘The Kiss of Deception’ is a bad, bad, BAD book.

3 CURRENT FAVORITE BOOK COVERS:

3 GOALS FOR THE YEAR

Book related? I still like to finish 40 books, but it’s not looking too good at the moment. I also would like to finish the year with a TBR of 0 again πŸ˜€ Always nice to pick a couple new books for the start of the year. I enjoyed that a lot this year.

And I want a dog.

  1. Jup, it’s my goal as well to read 40 books. And I already know that I’m not going to make it. During market season I don’t have enough head space to read much. And I guess I won’t hit any of the other goals either. But nah… I don’t care. I’m in crime/thriller mood at the moment.

  2. Okay, so you don’t like Elantris and I don’t like Steelheart, so where would you recommend (re-)starting Sanderson’s works? I want to read something of his that will be a better indicator of whether I like his work. (Steelheart wasn’t a good example, from what I hear.)

    Good call on not reading Stardust if you love the movie. For The Princess Bride the book version isn’t as jarringly different. I enjoy the book of that one even though I love the movie.

  3. Stardust habe ich vor Jahren mal in der deutschen Filmausgabe gelesen, nachdem ich den Film gesehen habe – und ich mochte beides sehr.
    Der Narr ist auch meine Lieblingsfigur πŸ™‚
    Muss man Sanderson wirklich gelesen haben?
    Wie vertrΓ€gt sich der Hund denn mit den anderen Mitbewohnern? πŸ˜‰

    1. Sanderson ist es schon echt wert, wenn du mich fragst. Wenn du seine Schreibe magst, hast du eine Menge guter Buecher vor dir! Wuerde die Stormlight Archives oder die Mistborn Buecher empfehlen.

      Uh, ein Hund wuerde sich sicher nicht gut mit dem Rest vertragen, deshalb bleibts erstmal ein Traum. bis wir mehr Platz haben πŸ˜‰
