Since getting back to blogging over the last couple months, I’ve really wanted to add something new to my weekly posts. And lo and behold, I’ve been inspired by fellow blogger Soffi @A Book. A Thought. (Follow her!) Soffi’s ABC Book Challenge posts were so fun, I decided I just had to do my own! 😊 So, every week I’ll be posting my favourite, most memorable books and books from my TBR, moving from A-Z.
(PS. Whoever came up with this challenge, I don’t know who you are but thank you!)
It’s pretty fitting, actually, that I couldn’t think of any other memorable books I’ve read starting with D, because Stephen King’s The Dark Tower are on a league all of their own. It’s an absolutely phenomenal series and if you haven’t read it, take a deep breath and dig in! King is magnificent here (he usually is), the world he built and the characters unforgettable, awe-inspiring and often impossible to comprehend – in terms of how ON EARTH he imagined it all AND got it down on paper in such an gob-smacking way. Just wow. This is a series in need of countless re-reads, discussions and fangirling. Seriously. READ IT PLEASE.
To Be Read
Here we are, three amazing sounding YA Contemporaries with male perspectives I can’t wait to read and a YA fantasy series that’s been on my radar for ages! The Dangerous Art of Blending In kind of reminds me of Aristotle and Dante in summary, which is the exact opposite of being put off, i.e it sounds amazing! And of course it will have its own unique style and story. Darius The Great Is Not Okay first peaked my curiosity because of the cover and when I read the blurb I was doubly excited about the prospect of reading a story set in Iran about a pretty nerdy sounding guy and a new friendship :D. I am super excited to read Dear Martin, because I know it will pack an important punch about so many important issues, plus I’ve only heard great things about Nic Stone. And then there’s the Daughter of Smoke and Bone Series, one I’ve read nothing but raving reviews about from fellow bloggers and it really excited me because it’s actually not like anything else I’m reading at the moment. Wow, can I possibly read all of these at once please?
