I don't often DNF books but this one just didn't do anything for me! #dnf
Amazing enough for me to revisit the whole quartet more than two more times as an adult! It starts off with horses but trust me, there‘s far more to Tortall than just horses.
Random impulse buy 🙌🏻🤗 anyone read this. It‘s the smallest book I‘ve bought in a while. #fantasy
I think I love Daine even more than Allana. Her wildness & vulnerability, her love & connection to the world, esp the animals, around her, & just the way she never hesitates to stand up for others makes her amazing in my eyes. I also loved watching her try to figure out the people around her-like her I‘m often just befuddled at the ways people behave. I‘m looking forward to the next installment of her story.
Here are my favorite #18in18 books. I am especially excited to have discovered Tamara Pierce and Madeline Miller. Also the end of Kate Daniels series did not disappoint! This was a pretty great year for books.
Tamora Pierce has written a stunning Fantasy novel and created a world full of strong female characters with grown up relationships. I realise this was first published some time ago and I‘m sorry it had passed me by, but now I‘m truly smitten and will be reading more of this series.
“Hedgehogs woke Daine as they wriggled into her bedroll, shaking in terror. It wasn‘t the controlled fear they felt around hunters, but the wild panic that made them run before a fire. She eased out of the covers. ‘It‘s all right,‘ she whispered. ‘Stay here.‘”.....I‘m loving the writing, the world building is so good and I‘m only at chapter 3....
For anyone using NetGalley, these are available to request
The downside of being at work is that I don‘t have access to my own books for any #24in48 challenges, but I do work in a library, soooo...
I loved Tamora Pierce‘s Tortall books as a kid, and they‘re probably why I‘m still an avid fantasy reader today. I‘m pretty sure all of mine are in boxes somewhere in my Dad‘s house, but I also broke down and bought the kindle versions a few years ago.
Side note: This copy has been in my library since 1994.
Last night at the #fiercefriday event I met one of my all time favorite authors, Tamora Pierce. This woman helped solidify my love of reading growing up as well as my love for fantasy novels. She has always written books about powerful, intelligent women and has been an inspiration for me for years. I'm so grateful to have met her.
🦄 I usually relisten to the whole of Ms. Pierce's perfect world of Tortall once a year, though J. Ashley's Mackenzies are getting to be a yearly thing too.
🦄 Mac and Cheese!
🦄 M*A*S*H is my absolute favorite TV show, I've seen every episode and know most of the jokes. If you've never seen it, give it a watch!
Thanks for the tag @Serotonin! Hmm @Jess7 @Nicole-Reads @Madamereginald 😙
Me: Ugh, I'm just not connecting with any YA fantasy books these days. Maybe I've finally outgrown this genre, ten years after my teens ended
Also me: *rereads an entire YA fantasy series in one weekend*
Tamora Pierce's newest book about Numair made me want to revisit this earlier series. Wild Magic is one of those books I've read a million times, but I think this might be only my second time through the rest of the series. Good to be back!
This is perhaps one of my MOST FAVOURITE series EVER! ✨💕✨💕
It has a kick-ass female main character and also more kick-ass female side characters. The world itself is magical and vivid. There are gods, monsters, magic, espionage, battle and dragons!
I'm in love with the new covers! 😍😍🙈
With Tempest and Slaughter finally being released into the world next week, it seems fitting to claim The Immortals Quartet as my most beloved series for #RiotGrams since it‘s where we first meet Numair 😍
And well, he was probably my original/first book boyfriend - so I‘m really excited!
My very first Tortall book ever!
I‘ve missed you, Littens.
So much love for this series!
Also my most reread! What books keep you coming back for more?
Littens, I can't seem to stay away from Tortall. After a one book break, I'm back and already LOVING Daine. How is Tamora Pierce so awesome?
Colour me depressed.
Also, never mind @Chachic , I've answered my own question.
