Secrets of the Octopus | Sy Montgomery
post image

Jumping back to a nature book. Have to read this because just love these creatures. Written as a companion to the National Geographic series. Also her other book The Soul of an Octopus was amazing. Go give this a read.

This book is great. It‘s just as you expect from a stand alone Guardians of the Galaxy story featuring Rocket Raccoon and Groot. Reads fast and just keeps the action going. Plus written by Dan Abnett who has written some warhammer books as well.

Peter Pan meets Pirates of the Caribbean in A Land of Never After, but this children‘s tale has been reimagined for adult lovers of all things dark and deadly, with an LGBTQ+ positive twist.

Can‘t put this one down. It‘s quite good and reads fast. Yet to see the darker adult themes but if they play into the book as well as it is so far I will still enjoy this. Series looks good too.

ILLBORN | Daniel T. Jackson

I‘m enjoying this book so far more than I thought I would.

Follows 4 young adults that dream of the same gate and the hand that beckons them to the golden light. They gain powers of healing, warfare, seduction and mind control. This catches the churches eye, which their military force has the goal of executing anyone labeled a heretic.

Anyone read this? I ask because I have no idea what I‘m actually reading here. It‘s just one huge run on sentence of a stream of consciousness that goes on for 1000ish pages. I actually do not hate it. Im actually am really getting engrossed in it.

Browsing my local Barnes and Noble, I stumbled upon a game book for an Oz tabletop RPG. It is amazing. I had to find out more about Oz. Having only known the Wizard of Oz and its sequel Return to Oz, I did not know too much about Oz. But now I have the complete collection here on my kindle and will journey into the land of Oz posthaste. Wish me luck.

Fourth time attempting to read this and this time is the charm. I am finally engrossed in it at 100 pages in on kindle(not sure what this equates to in paper pages). Probably enjoying this more because I‘ve been reading a bunch of McCammon‘s Matthew Corbett series this year and I like the historical part of it, but this blends that with magic.

This game just released and it fits my mood of what I‘ve been reading lately. It‘s about Banishers( ghost hunters), Antea Duarte and Red mac Raith investigating New Eden. This is a historical supernatural type setting and it is reminiscent of McCammon‘s historical setting for the Matthew Corbett series. Perfect game for my reading mood.

The Queen of Bedlam | Robert McCammon
post image

After 100 or so pages of Swan Song I bailed. Not because I didn‘t like it, the writing was good, although it was hard for me to keep my interest with it. I had to go back to my first love of McCammon and continue with book two of the Matthew Corbett series. These books hook you from the first sentence.

Boy's Life | Robert McCammon

Having finished Speaks The Nightbird, jumping right in to another McCammon read. Boy‘s Life. This is a coming of age story with a fantastic mystery plot. It is haunting, tragic, magical and uplifting. Definitely get those King coming of age vibes reminiscent of The Talisman and Fairy Tale. McCammon is becoming my favorite author. A must read.

Speaks the Nightbird | Robert McCammon

Historical fiction set in 1699 in the Carolina colonies with mystery and a witch, but something even more darker haunting the town of Fount Royal. The writing is excellent. It reads fast. Keeps your interest. Can‘t put this down. Glad I learned about this from Mike‘s Book Reviews on YouTube. My first read of 2024. Can see a ton more McCammon in my future.

Found this series on a whim on a Facebook post. They are short novellas, each one like an episode of a tv series. Each set of 5 like a season of said show. You can easily read these in one sitting, these read fast and are interesting. Starts off with a crippled girl becoming a dragon rider. Will she make it? Read it to find out.

Finally really giving this a go. Started to read this a few times before but never managed to get that far, I was always put off my the sheer size of how long the series is, but this time feels like the right time to read it. And I‘m getting farther in than I have in previous attempts. So this is promising.
