Next up is Limited Wish. The first one One Word Kill was excellent. A D&D 80‘s nostalgia time travel story! Highly recommended.
When your gf tries to cheer you up and comes home with a new book ❤️
Children of Ruin is the sequel to Children of Time. A novel that won the Arthur C. Clarke award in 2016. Adrian Tchaikovsky is a gifted writer and his thought experiments are fascinating. Children of Time: A ship sets out to land on a terraformed planet, ready for us humans. Only when we arrive, life is already there.
The sequel is just as magnificent! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Lola is reading as well #dogsoflitsy
Shadows of the Apt is a great epic fantasy series written by Adrian Tchaikovsky.
It spans 10 books and instead of having familiar #fantasy creatures like orcs and dwarves, this one has insect-kinden. Each species shares the characteristics of their respective insect.
We‘ve got hardworking ants, brilliant mantis fighters, stubborn and sturdy beetles, etc. And then one day the wasps attack....
A bit late but life has been crazy busy lately.
Red Sister is an amazing first book in a fantasy trilogy with a kick-ass female character.
And The Quiet at the End of the World is a wonderful science fiction book with an apocalypse. But it‘s hopeful, light and I recommend it to fans of Station Eleven.
A present from my other half that I adore. So thoughtful and filled with my all-time favourite books ❤️
I‘m almost done with my re-read. It‘s a fantastic fantasy series by Mark Lawrence about a young girl growing up as a deadly nun in a convent. There‘s lots of magic, fights and a marvellous story. If you‘re into #fantasy give the Mark Lawrence Ancestor series a shot.
Using this to share my two dogs on a walk this weekend #dogsoflitsy
And here‘s my #sffs from @jenniferw88 and I love love love it. Can‘t wait to read the books ❤️ and thank you for the lovely card. I will add the series you recommended to my list. It sounds super intriguing!
Edit: because I forgot to tag @Avanders — I am terrible.
New book brought in by my gf because I had a headache ❤️ and my less photogenic dog.
Did you know shelters in the U.K. struggle to find homes for black animals because they don‘t instagram well? 😱🤦♀️🙈
Lola doesn‘t instagram well but I love her anyway 😂
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ For once science fiction and not fantasy. My gf‘s favourite Alastair Reynolds novel, hence my decision to finally give it a go. It‘s a fantastic concept, spans decades and has an epic scope. Characters are somewhat unlikeable, deeply flawed and I was totally engrossed in the plot.
One day, one of Jupiter‘s moons takes off and flies away. An alien ship had hidden in our solar system and now we‘re pursuing...
I made my gf wrap things for #sffs and then we ran out of normal paper so there‘s some Christmas paper happening. Whoops. Talk about an unwanted theme added to a swap 🙈
Instead of reading we‘re playing a board game.
Edited to add: there‘s no board but it‘s definitely a game.
He had his teeth cleaned today and is now feeling sorry for himself / sleeping off the anaesthesia while I read my fantasy book.
Because I need a new series #fantasy and here we‘ve got ten books finished about humans that are different because they‘re insect-kinden. There‘s wasp people and ant people and bug people and I find the premise intriguing.
Taking notes to write an article about this book next month.
“Like a vast spider suspended by a metal chord, a candelabrum presided over the room nine feet above the floor boards.”
Do you annotate books? Do you take notes on a separate piece of paper? Or do you never take notes?
Perhaps this is too hard a read for January? Any Woolf fans?
This just dropped through the door and I‘m so happy to get my hands on it. I‘m just a little #fantasy fan who loves books far too much.
Now, to do all of my Christmas shopping so I can snuggle into the sofa with dogs, books and a glass of whisky.
I hope everyone has an amazing day.
