After 2.5 months, I ought to be able to count this more than once in my GR Reading Challenge. (Note to self: no more omnibus editions...even if they are $2.99).
And now your watch is ended...so why not read some more? 🔥❄️ Here are some book series to help you move on from #GameOfThrones. Full blog: https://www.strandbooks.com/strand-blog#/entry/entry223-game-...
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms was almost as good as The Broken Earth Trilogy, maybe a little easier to read, in some ways maybe a little more accessible or “fun”? I put off reading it for so long because I was afraid to be disappointed. NO WORRIES. It‘s an amazing story. I‘m not sorry to say N.K. Jemisin is my absolutely favorite author. Also, I‘m liking the new Kindle option to sort by “read” or “unread”.
🗣 The Inheritance Trilogy is on ridiculous sale today for $2.99!
My latest tattoo. I still have to get the coloring done, but I'm so excited! This is Sieh from The Inheritance Trilogy, child god of mischief. He steals planets and stars to play with.
Wow!! This did not feel like 1446 pages, I flew through the books. I especially liked that the point of view character in the second book was blind! N.K. Jemisin did a great job here! So excited to read her story collection - it should arrive tomorrow 😁
1400+ pages can be a bit intimidating. But 150 pages into the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, and I am hooked! Maybe I will take a break between each of the books, but for now, I can't stop!
Next up as the read out loud selection for my partner and I. This one is going to take us awhile!
Words can't really express how excited I am for this. Here are some emojis.
#MarchBookstagram2018: Thickest Book
I haven‘t read The Inheritance Trilogy, @Chachic gave it to me last month only (like that‘s an excuse! 😂), but I feel like I‘m gonna like it. All the books Chachic recommends to me hit the right spot; so if you want book recs, she‘s the besfluencer I‘ll rec you to! 😉

#TuesdayTidbits from @JenlovesJT47
1. Lots of love triangles in my current read (tagged book) but my favorite is Yeine, Itempas, and Nahadoth. It‘s intense!
2. Old school? Maria and Tony from West Side Story Slightly more recent? Almásy and Katharine Clifton in The English Patient
3. The whole love scene between Jake Sully and Neytiri in Avatar.
4. Who shall I tag?? How about some new Littens? @Leigh_Medeiros @beodd @Eggbeater
Finally committed to this 1,400-ish page monstrosity after it mocked me from my TBR shelf for about a year. I just finished book one, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, and am mentally preparing myself for book two, The Broken Kingdoms. And, yes, I am one of those evil book spine crackers.
1. Kids and dogs are the cutest. And then a goose adopted my office lawn. And my sweet, late cat. ❤️❤️ you @TricksyTails
3. Cookie! Cookie! Cooooookie! (Said like the Cookie Monster, b/c I like them all.)
4. Just started book 3 of the tagged trilogy. It‘s an epic fantasy with gods, godlings, demons, and a human or two. Amazing world building and characters.
5. Can‘t wait for Olympic ice skating and skiing!
At 1446 pages it took me longer than I anticipated to read but it was well worth the time. This world is absolutely fascinating. Jemisin is an excellent writer. Overall I love Yeine though I think Oree's story in the second book is my favourite. Absolutely fantastic ending. 4/5 stars. #whattoreadnextnowthough
We all need this mug😂😂😂 I should be getting dinner started but I'm in the final stretch of my book and I really want to finish it

Excuse my horrible collage lol but I just cleaned my shelves, they had a bunch of just random stuff in front of my books (which I hate) and the stuff on top was just shoved up there all Willy nilly. I still have some stuff on top that I'd like to be rid of but have nowhere else to put 🤔
Also really enjoying this series. I feel like it's taking me forever to read though. I think I've been playing more games then usual. So I'm blaming that.
OMG it‘s giant. But, yes, I bought it because all three in one for $20. How could I say no?
Look at these beauties that came in the mail today. I got another surprise today that I cannot talk about until next Friday. Phooey on you, Friday 13th👊🏻
📚 not sure exactly maybe The Passage or Something by Ken Follett. When I finish this omnibus will likely be that one at +1000 pages.
📚I like to have details but not too much
📚Black. No sugar. No creamer. No milk.
📚Irish breakfast maybe or Melon drop. The last couple days it's been throat rescue.
📚curled up in my comfy blanket in a chair
📚probably Dr. Suess or Robert Munsch when I was a kid.

I was tagged by @Robothugs and @vivastory to list my #topfivefaves
Series: I haven't read a lot of series, so I'll say Jemisin's Inheritance trilogy coupled with her short stories set in that world
Movie: The Fall
Dessert: Any kind of pie (except for pecan, too sweet)
If you haven't done this yet, consider yourself tagged😊
A trilogy of four? 🤔🤔🤔🤔
I adored this book (trilogy). The writing was gripping, the characters engaging and the world-building fantastic (though I would have liked a map). I'm sad to say goodbye to this world, but I'm looking forward to rereading it in a few years when it's not so fresh in my mind. And in the meantime, she has several other books. #epicreads #fantasy
