See, the last few months I’ve spoken about coming back but then never did, so this time I decided to not announce my return, but just jump into it! Considering that this is my second post in one week, I say it was the best decision to make!
Action speaks louder than words, right friends 😉
Also, just want to thank everyone for the love. You are all amazing for standing by me during this long period of undependable me.
I am so grateful for your continued support. Truly!
Isle of Winds – James Fahy
Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy
You Should Read This, Because… It is perfectly reminiscent of childhood classics such as Chronicles of Narnia, Alice in Wonderland, and Harry Potter. The mythology and worldbuilding is rich and fills the pages, while the characters led by Robin Goodfellow make for an entertaining cast. Absolutely delightful and whimsical.
As a reader, it’s a delightful piece of escapism that echoes with humour and with heart. As a writer, it’s a lesson in enriching your story with myths and magic.
Shades of Magic Trilogy – V.E. Schwab
(NOTE: I read the first book last year, but read 2 & 3 in February, so I’ll just talk about the trilogy as a whole)
You Should Read This, Because… It is a fantastic series that is consistently gripping and magical from start to finish. With a cast of unforgettable characters, it is fantastical adventure to inspire wanderlust. Lila Bard is one of the fiercest female characters you’ll encounter on the written page.
As a reader, it is page-turning series that ends on a satisfying note, while leaving you wanting so much more. As a writer, it is a lesson in crafting a solid series full of brilliant worldbuilding and engaging characters.
That’s all for February friends. Sorry for the shorter post!
Have you read any of the above books? Which book series do you hold in high esteem?
Stay well friends!
May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,
