1) Best teeth has to go to vampires! Pictures of Aidan Turner as vampire Mitchell from Being Human, and Luke Evans as Dracula from Dracula untold

2) My favourite paranormal creature used to be vampires, but I am loving my shapeshifters at the moment (weres, walkers, fae, demons...)

3) Silver seems to stop MOST paranormal creatures so silver bullets would be my choice

“In every generation, there is a chosen one” (Buffy) - who would you cast as your favourite character? (Photo)

My favourite character so far is the MC Mercedes ‘Mercy‘ Thompson, and I would cast Tonantzin Carmelo as Mercy.

She looks like I imagine Mercy to look, and has even played a skinwalker (like Mercy) in Teen Wolf (I haven‘t actually seen teen wolf though...). Perfect!

This is the 2nd month for the group (my 1st month) but @AkashaVampie is running things, and we are just casually reading the months pick, doing challenges she has made for the book and generally chatting about reading and paranormal romance. There is still time to get involved! 🥰

I‘m tempted to do a full series read through after this!

Uhtred is a man of action, and peace does not suit him. He comes into his own when strategising and fighting in battle. I find him hard to relate to sometimes as he makes very questionable choices, but he is also honourable and loyal. He becomes more likeable in this book, and you really start to root for him to succeed. I hope he continues to grow with the series!

No reading done today for #24in48 as was mostly looking after this little guy, and in his sleepy spells I hung out with my partner playing Witcher (we are very excited about the tv series later this year!).

I got about 6/7 hours in total and finished The Last Kingdom, which is more reading than I have managed in total over the last month, so I am very happy with that ☺️

Good luck to all those still going!!!

My favourite #RomanceNovels are #ParanormalRomance

I love the mix of action and the supernatural with the romance side. Many of these include some form of ‘mates‘ too, pairs that are destined to be together and know when they have met the one. I like that idea as it takes away the doubt people have in the real world 🥰

Pictured are the first books in several PR series I love and a stand-alone that I think counts...

Book 1 of the readathon (and the series) completed!

Uhtred is an English lord that grew up with Danes. He learnt to fight with them, loved them, but circumstances now find him fighting against them, for King Alfred of Wessex.

I find Uhtred to be much more likeable in the book compared to the TV series (though I like him in both) and I think the narrative style of the book is part of that reason :)

So according to the books litsy page, 3 years after I said I was picking this one back up, I have finally finished it!

Brian‘s journey into acting and his various roles is great to read about. There was less of his exploits in mountaineering, little about his private life, and nothing much on his other explorations and endeavours than I would have preferred. However it was still an enjoyable read with the larger than life Blessed at the helm!👌🏻

Tribe: Adventures in a Changing World | Bruce Parry, Mark McCrum

Covering all 3 seasons of Tribe, this book covers Bruce Parry‘s time living with 15 tribes.

Although I loved all of them, my favourites were in the colder climates such as Siberia. You see a lot about African and Amazonian tribes but little about those in the colder (potentially harsher?) climes.

If you liked the series this is a great read ❤️

This is my second time reading this book (so it is fresh in my memory when I start the rest of the trilogy) and it‘s as good as the first time!

Following the death of a historian, Shara goes to Bulikov to investigate. Once the seat of the world, ruled by divine beings, Bulikov is no longer the city it once was and speaking of the divine is forbidden. But it appears the historian found out a dark truth, and that not all the divinities are dead.

It is amazing that with all of the achievements of the human race, there are still ancient civilisations that are a mystery to us. Whose cultures are forgotten, and whose cities are hidden in thick expanses of impenetrable jungle, untouched by humans in hundreds of years.

This was an interesting and decade spanning journey, and I loved how easy it was to follow. Douglas does an amazing job of describing the work that went into...cont👇🏻

Bookworm54 ...researching potential sites, the use of lidar in the initial scans, and the ground truthing of one of the sites found by lidar. He also delves into the hardships and perils of jungle living, deforestation, and looting of sites of archaeological importance.

We still know so little of the people who once populated the large cities in the Mosquitia Jungle, neighbouring the Mayan cities, and I hope that one day we are able to find out more!

I absolutely loved this book!

Steven Johnson pulls together several reports and accounts into a compelling narrative of urbanisation, disease, and epidemiology.

How all the threads of investigation by various boards, Henry Whitehead, and John Snow came together, confirmation of the theory via another outbreak, the importance of the disease maps both then and now, and the potential implications of city living blew my mind!

I recently moved to Killingworth, Newcastle upon Tyne, very close to where the old Colliery was located (and Dial Cottage, home to George and Robert Stephenson)

We went to Beamish Museum recently and my partner was excited to discover the name of our village there in relation to the colliery. He did some research and discovered that John Snow also visited Killingworth during the cholera outbreak.

So I was excited to see confirmation in print! :)

Walking the Nile | Levison Wood

Overall I did enjoy this trip along the Nile. From it‘s contested beginnings in Rwanda to the Mediterranean Sea, Levison Wood had an extraordinary journey. This was a massive feat of endurance and truly inspirational.

My main issue with this (and why it is a so-so rather than a pick) is that you never got a big insight into any particular part of the journey or the communities he spent time with. But it is hard to fit a year into one book!

It is nearly the end of January, and my first book of 2019 is complete.

The writing was beautiful, but I never felt personally invested in the characters and the story didn‘t seem to go anywhere. The way the author covers racial injustice, isolation of the characters, and the depiction of music is stunning. However this isn‘t a book I would choose to come back to in the future.

I was lent two of C.J.Sansom‘s books by my Uncle, Dissolution and Lamentation. These are of the same series, but have several books in between. However I didn‘t feel like this book lost anything with me not having read the others in the series. Events of importance were noted briefly in the main story, and was easy to follow despite having only met the main character previously.

This was a slow burner, but picked up quickly and was enjoyable!

Daisey I love this series, and the fact that the books can be read individually is one of the things I appreciate about it. 10mo

Master Shardlake is a lawyer who is tasked with finding the murderer of one of Cromwell‘s commissioners at a monastery. Him and his assistant find themselves snowed in, and surrounded by enemies. And as the body count increases, it is vital that they discover the murderer before they too are killed.

My only issue with this was that Shardlake mentioned his disability (he is hunchbacked) very frequently. Otherwise, a great read :)

The past few weeks have been very busy, but I have finally finished Stiff.

This book won‘t be everyone‘s cup of tea. It discusses in detail the things cadavers can be used for when donated to medical science. It describes the process of decomposition, future funeral techniques (some may even be current now that 15 years have passed), and yet there is humour and awe interspersed in this book.

Life doesn‘t have to end when you die.
