I got my book signed! It was an extra specially good night because not only did I get to see my much beloved Garth Nix - he was ‘in conversation‘ with Amie Kaufman who is hilarious, asks great questions and can generally be relied on for quality banter ☺️ and then I went to see the new Terminator movie 🍿
“Necromancy is not a viable career path” - Garth Nix to children who write him that they want to be necromancers after reading the Old Kingdom books.
Attended a panel where Garth Nix and Veronica Roth talked about their new books. They also answered questions about their old series.
#OctoberTBR shelf featuring library books! Books for review! Books I meant to read during the summer and never got around to #Spookathon picks. Realistically I will get through only a third of these, unless it's a #nosleepOctober but I'm a mood reader so I need the options 😅
Granted, Garth Nix‘s Old Kingdom series is a favorite so I was already inclined to like his new book. But the Three Musketeers vibe and setting are even more enjoyable than expected because he pairs it with an interesting historical set-up and more importantly, cool magic. I loved the magic and the characters. Those are my key needs fulfilled.
But the ARC had no map.
I am counting the days until it pubs in October (2019) so I can get me my MAPS.
While amazed and excited a friend gave me this ARC (Garth Nix is a favorite!), when it comes to #bookswithmaps ARCs suck rocks😣
Despite this disappointment, this gorgeous fatty is my holiday weekend read.
Review TK when I come up for air.
