‘Sup folks! [insert a long string of misery and excuses] but I’m back now! 🙂
While I am working on a book review with a work colleague, I thought the best way to make a comeback is by doing a tag. My heartfelt thanks to Zuky the BookBum for tagging me! Many thanks also to not-so-modern-girl for creating this interesting tag! Goes without saying that you’ll need to check out their bookish blogs! *looks at you with hypnotic eyes and whispers* Do it!
*Create your own listicle tag, using the prompt from the person who tagged you.
*Tag the creator of the post (not-so-modern-girl!) so that she can read all your brilliant posts and see how the joy of listicles is being spread.-
*Nominate as many people as you want!
*Set those 5 people the subject/prompt of their listicle post!
The listicle prompt by Zuky is: 5 books you wish you could read again for the first time.
Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames
“You know the books where heros are gallant knights in shining armour, gentlemanly and smooth as margarine? Well, Kings of the Wyld brings you Saga… 5 heros who know how to enjoy a good meal as much as value a good pair of tits.” [Read More…]
Goes without saying I had just sooo much fun with this book!
All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque
There is something about this book… about Remarque, that has a never fading impact on me. The very first time I read All Quiet on the Western Front- everything changed. I would like to say, the humanity and the theme of war shaped my young mind and pushed me in a certain direction. I have read a number of Remarque’s books and I have enjoyed them all, but I am planning to reread this one in the very near future. I think it’ll be an interesting venture…
Screw Friendship by RG Manse
That book, and the whole series after that was an absolute hoot to read. You might think, but, Liz, it’s kind of mystery genre? Wasn’t it boring?! Hell no, it wasn’t! Frank Friendship series does not fit into a box! It’s witty, funny, outrageous and I had the best time ever reading Screw Friendship, Pursue Friendship and Deny Friendship. The characters, the twists, the shockers! I am longingly awaiting to read what RG Manse comes up with next!
The Leopards of Normandy: Devil by David Churchill
“My heart must have broke about 4-5 times during this wonderful book… Bloody hell, I seriously cried… Twice! And I feel like I have so much to say about this book without knowing where to start…” [Read More…]
This historical fiction series is keeping me on my toes. Since reading Devil, Duke Book #2 has also been released and I am eagerly waiting for Book #3. The historical facts mixed with some really good fiction made Devil a really exciting book for me, so I do wish I could go back and read this anew just to revisit those feelings I had…
Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence
I have a rather special relationship with the whole trilogy. My reading had stalled, my life had stalled.. everything was rather shit and boring a few years back. I walked into a library- at this stage I hadn’t really read a book for a number of years- became a member and Prince of Thorns was the second book I loaned. Second book? Yeah, well, fun fact: I had actually read King of Thorns first without realizing it was #2 in a series… pffft… but, all’s well that ends well… Lawrence essentially rekindled my love for reading and kickstarted this bookblog. I do wish I could go back in time and read this for the first time again!
So, this was my listicle! Have you read any of the books I listed? If so, let me know what you thought about them orfeel free to link your own reviews in the comments 🙂
