5 things: fantasy reads (or recent loves)

I read in all genres, but I always come back to fantasy. It is truly my not-so-guilty pleasure. And I have read a lot of good fantasy this year. I am especially partial to what I think of as magical girl fantasy (much like magical girl manga), so I scoured my list of 2016 goodreads books for my top 5 of 2016 (read in 2016, not published).

off the shelf: The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst

I was a little lax on posting this weekend, but I did record two videos 🙂

This time, I’ve been reading and loving Sarah Beth Durst’s The Queen of Blood, first in the new Queens of Renthia series, an adult epic fantasy that takes place in a world where nature is deadly and only those who are chosen to be queen can keep it in check.

This review is based on an ARC that I picked up at ALA. The book is available for pre-order and will be published on September 20, 2016.

Don’t miss Friday’s video, the first in my minimalism (my way) series.
