12 posts | 45 read | 1 reading | 4 to read
In Furies of Calderon, #1 New York Timesbestselling author Jim Butcher introduced readers to a world where the forces of nature take physical form. But now, it is human nature that threatens to throw the realm into chaos For centuries, the people of Alera have harnessed the furieselementals of earth, air, fire, water, wood, and metalto protect their land from aggressors. But no fury can save them from the dangers they face within. A mysterious attack from across the sea has weakened the First Lord. Should he fall, a bloody civil war is inevitable. The responsibility of fending off assassination attempts and treachery within the First Lords circle of spies falls on Tavi, the one man with no fury to call

So I bought the first two of a 6-book fantasy series thinking I wouldn't read them for a few months because they were both 600 odd pages and I am so busy right now. Fast forward 5 days and I flew through them and now have to suffer while I wait for the next few books to arrive. The books aren't perfect, but the second book explains more of the world building and becomes a lot better. Can't wait to read the rest.

Tavi is my child. Bernard is my child. Max is my child. They are all my children. I love them and I want to protect them. #jimbutcher #fantasy #decemberreads #academsfury #codexalera

I had this book for almost 2 years and I was not motivated to read this until now for #LitsyBingo #OnTBROverOneYear.
And damn ... why did I wait so long? I really want to buy all sequels and read right to the end 😄

Riveted_Reader_Melissa These are on my pile to read too! 2y
Leniverse @DuckOfDoom Go get them! That's a series where the books just get better. I really enjoyed that whole series. @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 2y
Indexasaurus I love that series! 2y

Time to join the #TBRBingo.
I added random numbers in case I can't decide what to read and have to throw dice again.
Plus, I think I will try to play #TBRhardmode because I have to try to finish some series: If a series is not finished and the next book is already released, the book will be replaced on the card.
BUT, instead of a book buying ban I will treat myself with some pretty special edition every time I get a bingo! Wish me luck!

Maike That's a great concept! 😁 2y
Sarah83 Sounds great. Which special editions do you have on your mind? 2y
jpmcwisemorgan Sounds like a good plan to me! 2y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I like the way you think! 👍 2y
LibrarianRyan Love it. Plus you and I have very similar book tastes and TBr (edited) 2y
DuckOfDoom @Sarah83 The illustrated American Gods and Anansi Boys are on top of the list, plus I want to exchange some paperbacks for hardcovers. I also have an eye on the new editions of the shannara books which look quite lovely 2y
Sarah83 Sounds like great investments. 😉 But you haven't discovered Folio Society books for yourself? Or is the American Gods edition the one of the Folio Society? 2y
DuckOfDoom @Sarah83 Other, the Folio books look great, but where to start? 😄 I wish I had a complete library filled with them 2y
Sarah83 I already bought my first two ones. But as there are really expensive and I often have a similar German edition, it is hard to choose, which ones I should change. Or maybe pay another new shelf for all of them. 😍 2y
JazzFeathers That's a hard call. But l'm sure you'll do great 😊 2y

THIS. I'm not into series, usually, (unless it's HP ⚡) but this one has snared my attention. So much so that I'm doing laundry at midnight on a Wednesday.. (Thursday?). 😆

The plot thickens!

So, all the things you totally saw coming at the end of the first book totally arrived by the end. But you're left wondering more about the backstory - *why* did those people do the things that set up the weird relationships they have now? So, I'm left wanting to know not only where is the story going, but where has it been?

Woke up at 6 a.m. instead of 7 a.m., so here I am still in bed squeezing in some reading before work. 😊
