Another February fave! Blackwing by Ed McDonald. I friggin loved this rough, magically filled world where scary evil is fighting other evil. There is the 'Misery' where magic is weird and out of hand. Very cool and dark, gritty world! I own the sequel, but haven't read it yet. Waiting for the third book, Crowfall, and then binge read! Works best for me as I forget so much so quickly ๐Ÿ˜ฃ so frustrating! . . . . . . . . . . . . #edmcdonald #blackwing #ravensmark #bookish #bookstagram #bookgram #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #bookworm #booknerd #bookshelve #fantasy #fantasybooks #reading #bookaddict #instabook #bookcollection #bookseries #bookaddict #europe #netherlands #weekend #boeken #booknookstagram #bookishfeatures #igreads #epicreads #instareads
#bookstabest2018 A February Fave! I've got two ๐Ÿ™ˆ this is the first~ Another Brian Staveley book. It's a prequel to The Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne! I got it as a gift from a fellow booklover! Fucking love the cover~ and the tale itself was awesome ๐Ÿ˜ It is about Pyrre who is a Skullsworn in the trilogy. In the prequel we follow her journey of becoming an Ananshael priest. They are such bad ass assassin priests ๐Ÿ˜ not afraid to die, living a full life and dying is their sacrifice to their god. Hope Im saying this all right ๐Ÿ˜‚ my memory is shit. I liked reading it after the trilogy cause it got me back to that world and having one book dedicated to Pyrre....what a treat! . . . . . . . . . #brianstaveley #skullsworn #bookish #bookstagram #bookgram #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #bookworm #booknerd #bookshelve #fantasy #fantasybooks #reading #bookaddict #instabook #bookcollection #bookseries #bookaddict #europe #netherlands #weekend #boeken #booknookstagram #bookishfeatures #igreads #epicreads #instareads
The sun came through!! I ran to make a spot to quickly snap my 2018 favs! Day light is precious! . #bookstabest2018 Fave from January I finished the last two of The Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne in January and wow that series was what I needed atm. It hit the right spot~ awesome characters, suspense and battles/ stabbiness. It involves bad ass monks, warriors flying huge ass birds called kettral and evil assassins called the Skullsworn. . . . . . . . #brianstaveley #thechronicleoftheunhewnthrone #bookish #bookstagram #bookgram #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #bookworm #booknerd #bookshelve #fantasy #fantasybooks #reading #bookaddict #instabook #bookcollection #bookseries #bookaddict #europe #netherlands #weekend #boeken #booknookstagram #bookishfeatures #igreads #epicreads #instareads
A Big Ship at the Edge of Universe by Alex White is a crazy fast paced space adventure with magic ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’š!! 5 ๐ŸŒŸ strong, I can only add to the great recommendations it's already getting!

November...a good reading month but socially not so great ๐Ÿ˜‚. Started off getting ill. Had 3 weeks constant tensionheadaches and then again ill and to top it off a stomach flu atm! I really need to work on how to process stress. Not to mention the often sombre mood. I already planned as little as possible in the weekends these last few months to handle my week better at work. But I hate the cut it has on my social life. I've become even more easily anxious and my fear of failure is horrid. Hate when this peaks so much. Everything is so drainingggg. And I know a lot of people have the same struggles on here. That's why I dare to air on here. It makes me feel lighter and relieved. And I hope I can convince myself soon that the weekend doesnt take only 2h but way moooore! And not focus on that damn monday around the corner! So WRAP UP! . ๐Ÿ˜ถ 5๐ŸŒŸSkyward by Brandon Sanderson ๐Ÿ˜ถ 5๐ŸŒŸ Voidwitch Saga 2 and 3 by Corey J. White. ๐Ÿ˜ถ 5๐ŸŒŸ The Wounded Kingdom 1 and 2 by RJ Barker ๐Ÿ˜ถ 3.5๐ŸŒŸ The Armored Saint by Myke cole . Loved the reads this month! . . . . #coreyjwhite #brandonsanderson #rjbarker #mykecole #bookish #bookstagram #bookgram #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #bookworm #booknerd #bookshelve #fantasy #fantasybooks #reading #bookaddict #instabook #bookcollection #bookseries #bookaddict #europe #netherlands #lezen #boeken #booknookstagram #bookishfeatures #igreads #epicreads #instareads #

Just finished Static Ruin, the finale to the Voidwitch Saga by Corey J. White. This series is spellbinding from beginning to the end!! There is so much action and death, it's like you're reading a race. Never bored, beautiful characters and a mutant cat ๐Ÿ˜. And I'm in love with the term Spacewitch/ Voidwitch! Our main character has telekinetic powers, trouble follows her. The spacetravels she goes through and the way she's surviving were the coolest. Mariam aka Mars is bad ass! This series is going on my favourite pile!! 5๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ . . . . . . . . . . . #coreyjwhite #voidwitchsaga #bookish #bookstagram #bookgram #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #bookworm #booknerd #bookshelve #fantasy #fantasybooks #reading #bookaddict #instabook #bookcollection #bookseries #bookaddict #europe #netherlands #lezen #boeken #booknookstagram #bookishfeatures #igreads #epicreads #instareads #torbooks #scififantasy #scifibooks

Finished Skyward and Blood of Assassins recently! Both strong 5 ๐ŸŒŸstars! . ๐ŸŒSkyward by Brandon Sanderson was something I really looked forward to. Although I've only read first 2 of the Reckoners series of his YA books. It didn't impress me much. So I went into this one curious if I'd like it. And I had so much fun with it! The world they live in is grey and practical. It is focussed on survival against the Alien enemy called Krell. I wondered why and who the Krell are. This you get a bit at the end of the book! Mostly its a build up plot to get to know Spensa our main char. From her POV you get to know the rest. And there is a talking ship! There is friendship, death and maybe...magic?...subtle first book! . ๐ŸฆŒBlood of Assassins is book 2 of The Wounded Kingdom by RJ Barker. It has a more dark and gloomy vibe with a same recipe as book one: solving a mystery, find a traitor. This one showed more hardship/ growth and death. It was beautiful in the sense that our main character has flaws and makes bad decisions. The prose is so beautiful in describing these emotions and confrontations! The ending missed a punch though. . . . . . . . #brandonsanderson #skyward #rjbarker #bloodofassassins #bookish #bookstagram #bookgram #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #bookworm #booknerd #bookshelve #fantasy #fantasybooks #reading #bookaddict #instabook #bookcollection #bookseries #bookaddict #europe #netherlands #boeken #booknookstagram #bookishfeatures #igreads #epicreads #instareads

I wanted to try a @secondstarlit box and the Novembers theme sounded neat! 'Otherwordly '. It was all cutely packaged and the box literally falls open ๐Ÿ˜‚.

#grimdragon day 18: Non human characters. . I love all kinds of non human characters, its one of the main reasons I love fantasy. My main love used to be focussed on dragons and elves when I was younger but now also creature companions. And AI!! . Few examples in this picture is Hobb creating Nighteyes! The companionship between Fitz and Nighteyes ( a wolf ) is so emotional and beautiful! Gwynne also created that in his Faithful and the Fallen series involving Storm which is this huge wolf and Craf the talking crow! At the moment I'm reading The Wounded Kingdom, people ride these antlered creatures that are fierce and tend to bite! Xus is one of them and although he isn't as involved as the other companions I mentioned. It's still an impressive creature ๐Ÿ˜. And I loveddd Aidan who is an AI in the Illuminae Files. The AI is in a way super freaky and unpredictable! Loved the atmosphere because of that. . . . . . . . . . . . #rjbarker #johngwynne #robinhobb #jaykristoff #amiekaufman #bookish #bookstagram #bookgram #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #bookworm #booknerd #bookshelve #fantasy #fantasybooks #reading #bookaddict #instabook #bookcollection #bookseries #bookaddict #europe #netherlands #boeken #booknookstagram #bookishfeatures #igreads #epicreads #instareads
#grimdragon challenge day 17: Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. . I just love when the challenge reminds me of Manifest Delusion series by Michael. R. Fletcher! For those who love horror and dark fantasy, get to it! . 'Dreams became nightmares, and nightmares became reality, stalking the earth as albtraum, manifestations of man's earliest fears given flesh. And the cycle continues. Creatures birthed by the delusions of such imperfect gods can hold no hope for sanity. These nightmares define new tomorrows, and the gods look on in mute horror at what they have wrought.' . . . . . . . . . #manifestdelusions #michaelrfletcher #beyondredemption #bookish #bookstagram #bookgram #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #bookworm #booknerd #bookshelve #fantasy #fantasybooks #reading #bookaddict #instabook #bookcollection #bookseries #bookaddict #europe #netherlands #lezen #boeken #booknookstagram #bookishfeatures #igreads #epicreads #instareads #darkfantasy
