I managed to actually read lately! Amazing. lol I hope it continues because I have read some really good stuff and want to continue to! I am not sure what else to even talk about because life is just kind of all over the place at the moment...
Graphic Novel Year
Nothing this week...
Feedback ~ I actually finished this last week, but because of internet issues, I never got a chance to include it. I didn't like this as much as the original trilogy, but it was actually pretty good overall. I think the narrator did a good job considering the main character was Irish. I also liked how the book mixed in with the original series and filled in some blank spots. I assume there is more to come and I am curious how it will play out! Recommended!
The Marvels ~ I have loved Brian Selznick in the past, so I had to grab his most recent book. (It looks great on my shelves, by the way.) Then it just sort of sat there waiting for me to get around to reading it. I finally did on the weekend and I am so happy that I did! I was hesitant with his method at first, but when everything came together it was so much love! He is brilliant and touches on sensitive and serious issues, but manages to be magical in his approach. Strongly recommended!
Behind the Throne ~ I loved this book! It was such a great debut! I am glad it was brought to my attention. (The 2.99 price helped. lol) It was pretty much a plot-driven page turner, but the characters were interesting as well. I am looking forward to the sequel because of the up-coming plots and because of the characters. I want to know what happens next! Such a great read! Strongly recommended!!
The Magician's Elephant ~ I actually had read this book before and didn't remember. Clearly that is not a good indication of how well this reread went. lol It was actually an Audio Deal that I grabbed because of the price and the author. The audio was better than my read of it, but I bet you it will still not stick with me...
The Evil Wizard Smallbone ~ I am not sure where I even heard of this one, but I grabbed a copy and picked it up soon after it arrived. It was fun and was sort of making fun of classic fantasy novels and the wizards. I liked how things all came together as the novel progressed. A fun read. Recommended!
