I forgot to mention David Eddings! 😲

Belgarion series was the 1st series I read after I got too hooked on Harry Potter and couldn't wait for 4th book to come out. :LOL: (there's a sequel series but I've never been able to read it).

But the Redemtion of Althalus is like a super fav of mine.

... I like fantasy books if y'all couldn't tell. :lazylaughplz:

The exception to true fantasy would be the Clive Cussler Books. The ones about Dirk Pitt. I want NUMA to be real and give me a job 🤩

I want to recommend a psychological terror book that is so good!! And what's more, it has a really charismatic reading to it and by the end of the book, you'll end up speechless! I really enjoyed my time reading this book, so here's a picture of both fronts since both are amazing! (the one made here in my country and the original)



The Boy Who Drew Monster by Keith Donohue
"Ever since he nearly drowned in the ocean three years earlier, ten-year-old Jack Peter Keenan has been deathly afraid to venture outdoors. Refusing to leave his home in a small coastal town in Maine, Jack Peter spends his time drawing monsters. When those drawings take on a life of their own, no one is safe from the terror they inspire. His mother, Holly, begins to hear strange sounds in the night coming from the ocean, and she seeks answers from the local Catholic priest and his Japanese housekeeper, who fill her head with stories of shipwrecks and ghosts. His father, Tim, wanders the beach, frantically searching for a strange apparition running wild in the dunes. And the boy’s only friend, Nick, becomes helplessly entangled in the eerie power of the drawings. While those around Jack Peter are haunted by what they think they see, only he knows the truth behind the frightful occurrences as the outside world encroaches upon them all."
Sounds interesting, will add to my never ending to-read list :pepemusic:

Please share me the ones in ebooks..

I heard "Homo Sapiens" (and "Homo Deus") from Yuval Noah Harari was good. I got the book, now it's finding the time to read it.

Recently got a mix of about 3000 pdf and epob books from a friend. Had an entire folder dedicated to an author selena kitt.

This one looks like it is inspired by "A Song of Ice and Fire", I think I will give it a try. After the disappointment that was the final season of GoT I decided to read the five available books. I'm mid-way through the fifth book

(Making me open up my nook...)
The Poppy Wars by RF Kuang.
It's the 1st in a new series and it has a very interesting world developed. Heavy on the military references has a bit of magic, but takes influence from twentieth century China, and throws in an underdog protagonist with spunk.

Any Sara J Maas book.
I started with Court of Thornes and Roses, 4 books. But The Glass Throne series was pretty epic as well, 7 books. If you're Under 18 don't read though. They have some rather adult moments.

Summoner Trilogy Series by Taran Matharu.
Very boy book. Again kinda military based, with magic, but not Harry Potter Magic.

Ok last one...
SpiritWalker Trilogy by Kate Elliott.
Cousins raised as sisters in a world that advanced to the Steampunk age (industrial age) and stopped. Where families with magic are the ones in charge, and people are into the idea of the French revolution (though it was only America that did revolt). The story centers around one House trying to take out the revolutionary leader and gaining power by any means necessary.
If you're into these books they are awesome and exciting, but if you're not they drag on.

😂 I've been reading both series again for the past 2 weeks.

But it's soooooo good right?!
I'm finally on the last book, but only halfway done.
I went walking (exercise walking) last night and immediately afterwards downloaded the audio books cuz i was so addicted that i tried reading while walking.

K after months and months of reading celibacy (proper reading), I started to read The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan last night, my gf bought it for me months ago for my birthday. It's the 1st book from the series called Percy Jackson and the Olympians

If I get into it and it looks like I will, since I adore these kind of adventurous reads, I'll buy sequel books from the series.
