Combine all the mythologies from around the world, bring it into modern time, throw in a couple of young heroes and mix them all together in an epic battle of good against evil and you come up with an almost perfect book!

A cute fantasy set in 1800s Ireland. The McGunnegal children set off a#in a grand adventure when their sister Colleen accidentally steps through a magic mirror to another world. Full of fairies and witches and goblins and dwarves.
Fair warning: there are actually two more books in the set

An interesting and twisted version of Snow White. I didn‘t realize when I ordered it that it was a graphic novel. Definitely not a kids book but overall very creative

Just got this set! Historical fiction set in turn of the century Russia. Looks like it‘s also romance, which I don‘t usually read, but it also looks like it‘s got a lot of history. Can‘t wait to get started on them

Crazeedi Oh boy, I LOVE series and I LOVE Russian history! These check both boxes! 2y

The second book in the Avalon series, if you read them chronologically, which culminates in the great Mists of Avalon. Tying history and fantasy together into a wonderfully realistic world

A great combination of fantasy and history set in Japan. Two different story that at first seem completely unrelated gradually come together to make a complete whole.
Warning has some very graphic parts that are at times quite disturbing. Not for the faint of heart. I would definitely read more by this author

Decided to start a new series today. I‘m going off the GoodReads list for reading them in chronological order instead of the order they were written. I‘ve always loved her other books (Marion Zimmerman Bradley), so I‘m expecting to be pleased with this as well

Got this whole set at an antique shop for a great price. I love old books (1928) and I especially love old history books because their perspective is so different

I just started this book and I can already tell I‘m going to love it. I loved the Artemis Fowl books and I think this is a great author. But this is NOT a kids book.
The worlds last dragon lives in the swamps and drinks a lot. The street rat who gets a little to deep into the local crime scene. Together they might be able to make this part of the world a better place

A Girl Golem and a boy Jinni arrive in late 1800‘s New York under completely different circumstances. They eventually meet up and have to work together.
I couldn‘t put this book down! A nice crossover between historical fiction and fantasy. I heard there is going to be a sequel, I hope so

Early Riser | Jasper Fforde

An alternate time line where everything is like it is now, but we are still in an ice age- and people have to hibernate. It‘s listed as a comedy but I would classify it as a mystery. I was a bit odd, kinda hard to get into, but in the end definitely worth the read.

Echo Check out his other works too! Shades of Grey was bloody brilliant as well! 2y

The first book in a series of about 8. It covers the time where the Roman Empire is dying and the natives of the British isles are retaking control. Setting the stage for the coming of King Arthur- which happens in the 6th book I believe.
If you‘re a fan of historical fiction, this is a must read.

This is one of the best new fantasy books I‘ve read in a long time. A unique story that you don‘t want to put down. An orphan boy discovers that he can do magic and uses it to change the world. Definitely going to look for more by this author

I have to sit with a group of kids, waiting for the bus, for about 20 minutes every morning. I‘ve brought various books to read to them but none have gotten their attention like this one. A mouse hero that must travel through a strange land; facing witches, dragons, giants and more. Non stop action and beautiful illustrations. I bought the whole set!

I would describe this as retro- post apocalyptic. It‘s got adventure, mystery, steampunk gadgets, AND giant bugs! One of the best stories I‘ve read in a long time (this is a trilogy) I hope he writes a sequel to it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I got this book because I love the show. This it what it‘s supposed to be based off. The only similarity is that they have portals that can take them to other planets. So, as a reference to the show- I was disappointed. But as a stand-alone book of its genre, it was worth reading.

Seveneves: A Novel | Neal Stephenson

Panpan

I don‘t generally like to give bad reviews, but I barely made it through this one. The basic story line was great and well written- and that made up about a third of the book. It was so constantly being interrupted by these mind numbing scientific details, that by the time they got back to the story you forget what was going on. If I wanted a science book I would have bought one.

Not my usual genre but a really incredible book. A modern day historian accidentally gets send back to the time of the Black Plague. In our timeline a desperate scientist faces his own challenges trying to get her back. A bit of a tear jerker but I couldn‘t put it down

ImperfectCJ My kids and I read Willis's Bellwether together and loved it. This one's on my TBR. If it's a tearjerker, it's probably a little different from Bellwether, which we found hilarious, but I like crying, too. 3y

Nath Dragon returns to save the world again. Where dragons are hero‘s and fairies are evil and giants want to rule world. Lots of action. A huge variety of magical critters. Add a sprinkle of humor and a pinch of romance.

The tale of a dragon prince that walks the world as a man, trying to earn his wings. Having all ten books together in one place is great! Individually they are kind of short, but as a set it makes for a great read.

Swan Song | Robert McCammon

If you‘ve read The Stand by Stephen King, you‘ll want to read this one too. They have many similarities but are not the same story, I actually liked this one better

Reggie I hope you read some of his other ones. A Boy‘s Life, Stinger, The Border. I love MacCammon. He‘s so good!!!! I was actually thinking about this book the other day because someone mentioned a mark of evil and said what would be the opposite. And for some reason I thought of the main girl in here who touched the trees and they grew fruit. 3y
Shaneyney @Reggie yes I‘ve read many of his books. I actually like him better than Stephen King. My favorites (along with this one) are Bethany‘s Sin and The Fall of the House of Usher (based on the old Poe story) 3y

Thrift stores are the best places to get books! This lot cost me $22

Sweetkokoro Lovely haul! I would buy my books from my local thrift stores but everyone I have been to writes the price with a black permanent marker on either the side or cover and that ruins it for me. 3y
Shaneyney @Sweetkokoro that‘s messed up! Have you said anything to them? 3y
Sweetkokoro I tried asking one once and they just shrugged it off and didn‘t have an answer for me. The thrift stores in my area aren‘t really the best. 3y
