2013

I didn’t come close to my goal of 100 books for 2012 so I’m going to try again for 2013.

My first review of 2013 will be of Raven’s Heart: A Tale from the World of Secramore by M.S. Verish. It’s a crazy long epic fantasy that i’ve gotten about half way through so far. It was a bit confusing in the beginning which is why it’s taking me so long to get through it, but now that i’m past most of the background bits and really into the plot it’s been an enjoyable read thus far, it’s just not possible for me to finish it for 2012 though. 

Books to read for 2013:

*If you sent me a review request and I haven’t yet reviewed your book and you don’t see your book on this list, all is not lost, I just didn’t imagine the huge response for requests and I’ve gotten horribly backlogged in reviewing/responding to people, but besides reading and reviewing 100 books another goal I have is to be quicker at getting back to people who’ve requested reviews, so if this applies to you I apologize!

1. Raven’s Heart (A Tale from Secramore – Epic Fantasy)

2. Time, Love, Memory: A Great Biologist and His Quest for the Origins of Behavior (This one’s not fantasy but I have to read it for a class i’m taking.)

3. Yseult: A Tale of Love in the Age of King Arthur (The Pendragon Chronicles) (Another whopper at 579 pages – but still not as long as Raven’s Heart)

4. Erich’s Plea (The Witchcraft Wars)

5. Steel, Magick and Faith (Book 1 of The Remus Rothwyn Chronicles)

6. Ghost in the Machine (Corwint Central Agent Files)

Somewhere in between review requests i’d also like to start reading more of Terry Pratchet’s discworld series in preparation for possibly going to the North American Discworld Convention (https://www.nadwcon.org/), so far i’ve only read the Tiffany Aching books but I loved them.

And last but not least. .. .

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!!!
