Another year came to an end, and a new year is about to make us its slave. Wow, that was deep, I know.
This new year will bring many new books, but I already have a small (*cough cough*) list of books that I want to read and I am yet to grab and sit and read without interruptions. I was supposed to start QOAAD before the year was over but that did not happen, my mundane job did not let me do it, still it is my first choice in 2019. And since I am done with The Darkest Star, which was my favourite read of the year, then I am free as a bird to obsesses over other fictional characters that will surely cause me to scream at the book. This is what I have planned.
Now that Christmas is just around the corner, what are you reading when everyone is drinking eggnog and munching on cookies? I know what I will be reading, but you will find out soon enough what my read will be.
I have looked and found 7books that might be filed “for various tastes”, I hope. Alright let us get down to it, next are the books, and do not worry you will know my favourite and the one in my hands this upcoming 24th and 25th, and probably all the way until New Year’s Eve. Here we go.
So, this is my first time recommending so many books in one go, but I hope to make a couple of more like this one in the future. I have not read the books I am about to name but the titles called to me or the covers (mostly the covers), so I want to share them with all the readers out there looking for something new to add to their reading list.
I picked these 10 in the Young Adult section, but they might have some fantasy in them as well. Though I am thinking of making another list, as I mentioned, but just for the magical, fantastical books out there. Unless you want to know about other genres then let me know in the comments. You will find the link to each book at the end of every description. Alright, here we go.
I should probably start off with Voyager, and I will try to look pass the things that I did not enjoy.
I read it fast and not just because it was the first book of the Outlander series which was completely new to me since Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber I already knew what would happen because of the TV Show, no, this one I read really fast because of the parts where Claire was on her own, those blurred.
Spoilers ahead if you have not read these 2 books, kindly stop if you have not read.
I will first give you, the unedited review, this is what I felt and thought when I first finished the book. Be wary, it contains so many spoilers you will have to jump to the end of it, where I said it is good and nothing else, if you do not want to know what happens at the end of the book. You have been warned.
I was just thinking about all the wonderful quotes from books that I love and decided to share a couple (alright, not a couple but 5) with you lads and lasses, simply to make your day and see if we share the same tastes today.
Honestly we may love many quotes from many books, so choosing only 5 is kind of difficult but if you want more, you can always go to my Pinterest or Twitter or Facebook and find more there, I might not post daily but there are some quotes there that I think you will want to share. Oh! Also my Tumblr, either in Spanish or English.
Since we are not getting A Song of Ice and Fire #6 – The Winds of Winter anytime soon, I might as well write about A Dance with Dragons, which is my favourite book so far in this saga. Especially because of Dany.
On that note, I love this one. It is quite interesting to say the least. If you are mainly a fan on the HBO Tv Series, then good for you that’s nice. However, the books? What can I say? I have a freaking main page in this blog solely dedicated to it, doesn’t that say how awesome they are? I confess I started reading the books after season one of GOT but come on, you see the series you go running face first into the books and then… nothing, you stay in limbo because Mr Martin haven’t published the 6th book.
The long waited second statements; either they are not-good, good or sometimes real good. I don’t know why is like that but usually or at least the past 5 or more series I read the 2nd parts are not what you would expect. Probably the author wants to fill in the blanks and leave all the good parts for the next one, perhaps what happens it is what the characters wanted you to know or simply, it just did not hold your attention because there were only some good parts in it, enough to make it a short story but not a full book.
The fact that the books I am about to name are listed here, is because of one of the reasons above, not because they were completely bad as in really terrible, that is not it (not for all of them). You still read them, you still need to know what happens in order to move on to the next book.
Being done with Obsidian and Onyx, thought I would stop by and say: Oh My Lord! Even when I find Katy a tiny bit annoying, Daemon on the other hand can be very annoying for her, I find him Hilarious, he may be egocentric and proud and full of himself but I like the character, what can I say? Bad guys are hot and I think I relate to him in some levels.
There are times when my feelings are not that this book is better than the other, I am mostly inclined to believe that all books have their own little things, different details that make them unique and I do not like comparing them to each other.
The same happens with the characters, specially the male characters clearly, which is why I decided to compile them all up in one place, though it has been sometime since I last read the books, the characters still continue to be a presence. Here is a list of my top characters and books but it is not yet complete.
