Making a foray into a genre that I don't normally read for 'Daughter of the Forest' by Juliet Marillier. It is a retelling of the folk story of The Six Swans set in medieval Ireland with a young princess, Sorcha, having to work with the fay to help save her six brothers and her people from an enchantment set by her nefarious stepmother and invading Britons. It might sound like a Grimms's fairytale but it is told with a sophistication and literary gloss that makes it an excellent novel if you prefer literary fiction. I needed a bit of an escapist read at the moment and, although it is dark and troubling in parts, this very much fit the bill.  Marillier is a very fine writer and I like her prose very much.

'What has Hector ever done to me?'
.
.
Can a book be sexy, tragic and epic?
.. ..
Last week for #femmefantale I read this, it's bloody brilliant. A prequel+retelling of Homer's Illiad from the perspective of Patroclus. If you are familiar with the Trojan war, you may wonder how Madeline Miller pulled out this perspective, I did, I was curious throughout and she made it look so effortless. Madeline Miller is a genius. I can't wait to read Circe. ..
..
I could gush about this book forever. I really could. ..

My wrap up for the #femmefantale readathon hosted by @jill.scott.9 and @jeansthoughts ! *
I managed to stick to my tbr for most of the week, before the mood reader in me came out haha. My total was 7 books read, most of which came off my tbr so not too bad!

Did you participate? What's your favourite fantasy book written by a female author?

I already knew this but this last week has confirmed it: me and readathons do not get along! 🤦🏻
.
.
.
I've only attempted two readathons but both times I've completely diverged from my tbrs. Because I'm such a mood reader, my brain just rebels from feeling like it's being forced to read something and instead wants to read literally anything else 💁🏻
.
.
.
I read Alphabet of Thorn early last week for the #femmefantale #readathon and was planning to read Strange the Dreamer for the rest of the week: I read 25 pages before getting distracted 😬
.
.
.
And this is a reread for me, so I know I'll love it! I'm back on the Strange the Dreamer game (now that the readathon is over, of course) as I need to read it by the end of the month to stay on track with my dissertation 🙃

To stay on theme with the readathon that I failed at, what's your favourite fantasy book/series written by a female author?

(p.s. I thought Sarai would appreciate the summer sky (not spring, unfortunately) to match her complexion 💁🏻)

My new favorite way to read is with ASMR rooms in the background on my tv. I’m loving The Dragon Republic while picnicking on the Hogwarts grounds. #bookstagram #igbooks #instabooks #alwaysreading #bookishhygge #cozyreading #asmrrooms #femmefantale #thedragonrepublic #rfkuang

This is a beautiful book... great cover,  end papers & chapter start illustrations definitely add to the ambience of the story.  Make no mistake,  this is a fairy tale, moderately dark & twisted.  Still it's clever & fresh.  Perhaps not for everyone,  but if you enjoy darker fairy tales, then you should read this one.  #thehazelwood #FemmeFanTale (my 5th book in the challenge this week) #bookdragon #booknerd #fairytale

4/5🌟It's nearly the end of the #femmefantale readathon and I managed to squeeze in reading 'Dorothy Must Die' by Danielle Paige! It's the sequel no one knew they needed to the Wizard of Oz. Dorothy is a magic stealing despot, the Lion loves to eat people's fear and the Scarecrow has a laboratory of human experiments. It's Kansa girls Amy Gumm's job to take down Dorothy. I loved it!

Last day of the #femmefantale readathon 
Completed:
🌱 The Tea Dragon Society 🌱 Inkspell 🌱 Fool’s Errand 🌱 Tithe

Currently reading:
🌱 Middlegame
I’m not very far in yet but it is interesting and already different from what I was expecting. The format is a little confusing but I think I’ll get used to it as I go on.
🌱 Beautiful 
Just started this on audiobook. It’s a retelling if East of the Sun West of the Moon told from the perspective of a someone that’s usually a side character in the story. I’m liking it so far! *

It’s the last day of #FemmeFanTale and I hope to finish at least one of my current reads: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho. I’m also just over half way into Doll Bones by Holly Black but I’m enjoying Wicked Fox more so that’s my priority. Fingers crossed! Happy reading! .

These two books I'm really proud of reading. The first book is Tong van de draak (Tongues of Serpents) by Naomi Novik, which is the sixth book in the Temeraire series and also the last book of the series I have on my shelves. I have now read all of the Temeraire books that I own. I know that there are more books in this series, but I got these six books as a gift from @chronic.villainy years ago and I finally read them all (and love them). The other book is The Awakened Mage by Karen Miller, the second book of the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker duology. I had this book on my shelves since 2015, when I read the first book. I'm so glad I finally read it and I'm not going to lie, it made me cry.
These books gave me my A for Potions, and my O for Transfiguration. #newtsreadathon2019 
They were also my third and fourth book for the #femmefantale readathon.

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl  2⭐️
.
Beautiful Creatures is set in Gatlin, a small Southern town and follows Ethan who has lived all his life there but can’t wait to move away. For a while now he has been having weird dreams about a girl and then suddenly Lena, who is haunted by her family’s past moves to town and it turns out that she is that very same girl Ethan has been dreaming about. The two try to uncover their connection, as well as the curse that’s haunting Lena.

I had this book on my TBR for ages and finally this week got around to read it for the #FemmeFanTale readathon and unfortunately it was a total let down. 
I was both reading the physical copy and listening to the audiobook, and I would definitely recommend the audio version over the physical one, as it had good narrators and special effects. 
Overall I liked the concept of the book and the setting, however I couldn’t really connect to the characters and both their relationship, as well as the execution of the story itself felt too shallow.

My 3rd book finished for the #FemmeFanTale  I almost gave up on this one  but I'm glad I stuck with it. (Thanks to Rhiannon  @interabangbooks for encouraging me). This version of Victor Frankenstein is much darker than Mary Shelley's.  Interesting retelling from Elizabeth's viewpoint. #bookdragon #booknerd #frankensteinretelling

EN🇬🇧/ My next read for the #femmefantale. I barely know anything about Greek mythology, but I'm happy to learn through this book. Fourty pages in and I'm  intrigued. Love the writing style! 
NL🇳🇱/ Het volgende boek wat ik uitkoos voor de #femmefantale readathon. Ik weet vrij weinig over Griekse mythologie, maar vind het leuk om het een en ander te leren door het lezen van Circe. Heb nu veertig pagina's gelezen en ben erg benieuwd naar de rest.  Vind de schrijf stijl in ieder geval erg fijn. ☺️📖 #circe

Really getting into this one now, I’m about half way through! I’m surprised I don’t see more people who read fantasy talk about Naomi Kritzer cause I think a lot of people would like her!

FINALLY got round to reading this earlier this week for #femmefantale. Do you recognise it?
..
There's always a little bit of uncertainty when you go back to an author's debut after discovering them through their later books. VE Schwab came through, though! This might not be as amazing as ADSOM - but then what is 😉 - but it's definitely an above average YA fantasy, with V's hallmarks of beautifully written, evocative settings and magic that definitely edges to the creepy side.
..
I can count on you for #queencityreads
Recent release for #augustlibrary19 - alright, I'm stretching the prompt a little! But it was only rereleased last year, and with my scattered head that definitely FEELS recent.

📚 BOOK REVIEW 📚
.
.
.
⭐⭐⭐
.
.
.
I'm a little conflicted with this book. I did enjoy it, and I was compelled to read throughout, but I was also confused as to what was happening a lot of the time. It frustrated me that very little action happened on-page, the majority of scenes were conversation about events that have happened or planning things that will happen rather than showing them to us, which irritated me
.
.
.
This book follows a few characters but primarily Nepenthe, an orphaned translator raised in the royal library. The story begins with Nepenthe receiving a manuscript written in a mysterious unknown language and the mysteries, spanning thousands of years, begin to unravel from there...
.
.
.
The thing I struggled with most was knowing where scenes were taking place and who was present. I guess that's technically a complaint with that specific element of the writing. The characters names were mentioned infrequently, so if you miss the mention of a character's name at the beginning of a scene, you're never reminded who's present
.
.
.
I really enjoyed the dual timeline narrative, getting the perspective of the founding of the kingdoms thousands of years ago and seeing those events still affecting the monarchy in the present. I enjoyed how the different timelines and perspectives converged towards the end, and was quite satisfied with that
.
.
.
I also really enjoyed the language and translating aspect of the plot, the way the different languages were described was really interesting
.
.
.
What's your favourite high fantasy book? I'm looking for some filled with great magic systems and adventure!

Do you depend on the blurb of a book?
.

I found this book at a bookstore who were selling a lot of translated works that day.... Those days i was less dependent on ratings and blurbs and picked books simply on the instinct... Looking back, my instinct always chose better than my intellect did...

Girls of Riyadh by Rajaa all-Sanea was as different as it could be from the series of vampire fiction novels i was reading then... It not only opened my mind to the world beyond my own country, but showed me how men could be different in other countries but women are mostly same....

Here is my first read for the #FemmeFanTale readathon. Tangelweed & Brine is a short stories collection featuring 13 retellings of classic fairy tales, but with brave and strong heroines. So far its been a great read and I have especially been enjoying the beautiful illustrations and the beginning of each story!

EN🇬🇧/ Starting my third book for the #femmefantale. Really enjoying this fantasy binge and really happy I read the Priory, I was so intimitaded by it size, but I loved it 😍. Hope to love this one as much as I loved the first one.

NL🇳🇱/ Vanavond beginnen in dit boek, het derde boek voor de #femmefantale. Erg tevreden met alle fantasy die ik lees deze week. Heel blij dat ik The Priory las, keek op tegen zo'n dik boek, maar vond het erg goed! Hopelijk ben ik ook zo tevreden over dit boek. ☺️📖 #theheartforager

This adorable book is the twenty-second book I read for the #newtsreadathon2019. It's my A for History of Magic. It's also my second book for the #femmefantale, and for that readathon it's my #middlegrade book.
This book's pacing is a lot slower than I am used to, but that may be because it's written for a younger audience than what I usually read. The book is an ARC I got and I absolutely recommend this book for children around 8 years old. The story is about a class with an unusual teacher. Miss Cornfield has a friend who owns a shop with magical animals and he brings those animals to class to find their lifelong friends. The children can talk to their animals and only the children can see and hear them. These animals help the children with their problems. This book is the first book of the series and the problems in this book are overcoming shyness, making friends and solving the stinkbomb mystery.

I’ve just finished Viper by Bex Hogan for the #femmefantale readathon. It’s a YA novel, and part of a new series called Isles of Storm and Sorrow.

I didn’t love this when I started it but I really got into it about 100-150 pages in. It reads as you might expect a YA novel which I am not usually the biggest fan of, but I found this to be a really easy and compelling read. There was a light touch of magic, fast-pace chases on the sea, and a feisty female protagonist who desires to heal rather than follow in her father’s footsteps as an assassin.

TURNING DARKNESS INTO LIGHT // MARIE BRENNAN ⠀
⠀
Happy publication day to this little beauty! I adore the Memoirs of Lady Trent series and can't tell you how wonderful it is to know that I have the chance to revisit that world! ⠀
⠀
Turning Darkness into Light is a novel that takes place after the Memoirs of Lady Trent series, but can be read as a standalone. However I would absolutely recommend reading the series because it is FABULOUS. ⠀
⠀
In a fantastical 'fictorian' world, Lady Trent is a celebrated dragon naturalist, known all over the world as a pioneer in the study and research of the world's different breeds of dragon. The Memoirs of Lady Trent follow her journey from a young girl stealing books from her father's library, through a world of sexist scientists, political entanglements and, of course, a whole load of enormous magical lizards.⠀
⠀
I've listened to all but the last on audiobook (audible doesn’t seem to have the last one! 😔) and adored the warmth and wit of the series, as well as its ability to completely tear your heart out when you're least expecting it, and tackle really difficult topics like colonialism, class, and gender with skill and sensitivity. 
I will carry the characters from that series with me forever and I'm so delighted that I get another glimpse into the world they come from. ⠀
⠀
Thank you @titanbooks for my copy! ⠀

Ich hoffe, ihr hattet heute einen schönen Start in die Woche. Während ich weiter renoviert, aussortiert und aufgeräumt habe, hat Taavi von seinem neusten Lieblingsplatz zugeschaut. Keine große Hilfe, der Kleine.

Diese Woche findet der #FemmeFanTale #Readathon statt. Eine tolle Idee von @jeansthoughts ... Eine Woche lang Fantasy, von Frauen geschrieben, 12 Challenges. Let's do it!

4/5🌟Wish I could have spent time reading this on the beach today, but I'm planning a return visit next week to do just that! Currently reading Spin The Dawn which is utterly spellbinding and the most intense fantasy fashion competition ever devised!

#femmefantale readathon TBR: 🌿Fool’s Errand (adult, queer?)
🌿Inkspell (middlegrade, sequel, multiple POVs, set in a country not your own?)
🌿Tithe (ya)
🌿Beautiful (retelling, stand-alone)
🌿The Tea Dragon Society (under 150 pages)

Currently reading: 
Fool’s Errand 
It’s been slow moving but I’ve been liking it. I only have 100 pages left but I have a feeling it’s about to get really sad and I’m not going to like the ending...
Inkspell
I’m really liking this one too. I only have about 3 more hours in the audiobook.
Tithe
Just started Tithe on audio yesterday. I’m only 5 chapters in but  Holly Black’s books are always great as audiobooks.

#qotd🌸 : When was the last time you found yourself tumbling into a fantasy world and unable to come out of it? 🐉
🐲
Earlier this month I finished reading The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon and was so enamoured by its fictional lands that I even started dreaming about them. No other fictional world since Rowling's Hogwarts had had this effect on me ✨✨
🌠
🌠
I am still in awe of the author. To think about the sheer hard work that went into creating this fictional world in such minute details ; blows my mind away. Even the similes and metaphors used in this epic fantasy is fresh, original and unprecedented. 🌟
🌟
If you find this tome to be unsurmountable, my suggestion would be take a look at the maps provided at the beginning of the book and let those places seep into your mind for some time. Remember that the first 200 pages or so of the novel would be a very slow one in terms of reading, since you are being introduced into something that you haven't even dreamt of. So, be patient and let those kingdoms and queendom gradually set your imagination on fire. 🌟
🌟
To come back to the maps, this fictional world is divided ( just like our world and you will find many allegories of our world in this book) into East and West. In the East, they revere the dragons and worship them as Gods. Tané has trained to be a dragon rider. In the West, we have the Queendom of Inys, being ruled by Queen Sabran, who must conceive a daughter soon because apparently, the Nameless One ( the greatest threat to their world) will wake up and cause havoc if the queendom is left heirless. ⭐
⭐
From the south of this fictional world comes Ead, whose identity is disclosed later in the novel. And it is with the help of these three strong women and other innumerable characters that the forces of chaos should be slained. 📚
📚
One of the most fascinating aspects of this fantasy world is the role of women.No profession is gender biased here. It is a feminist world in which one is not abused because of his/her/their gender.And it is because of this, that homosexuality is not frowned upon or persecuted in this world. #queerliterature 🌟

I picked up these short story collections from the local library last week. I think they qualify under the #femmefantale readathon? Both collections feature fantastical stories, magical realism and fairytale-esque themes.

I’m currently enjoying Karen Russell’s ‘Orange World’, and looking forward to starting ‘What is not yours is not yours’ by Helen Oyeyemi, a collection which I’ve been hanging my nose over for the past few years.

As one readathon ends, another one starts... The #mythtakereadathon ends today! It’s been so fun hosting a readathon and seeing everyone’s updates on here and twitter! Thank you to everyone who joined us 🙌🏻 But it’s not over yet - there’s still the rest of today AND a twitter chat later on to join! I can’t wait ✨ .

But with that readathon ending comes the smooth transition into the #FemmeFanTale readathon 🙌🏻 I’ll be starting Spin The Dawn today as they can apply for both, and I’m so excited! I’m also hoping to get to Vengeful this week, though that’s somewhat intimidating since it’s quite a chunk 🙈 We’ll see how this goes!

If anyone says they can’t find any good fantasy written by women, refer them to me...🧙‍♀️🧚🏿‍♀️👸🏻🖤⚔️ The #femmefantale readathon hosted by @jeansthoughts is all about reading fantasy written by women. I’m participating, just because my TBR for August already sort of lines up, and these are just a fraction of the fantasy books by women that I own. Let me know if you have any favourite fantasy authors that aren’t already here!! My absolute favs are Robin Hobb and Juliet Marillier.

Here is my very ambitious #femmefantale tbr. Looking forward to a week of reading fantasy written by women! 😊📖

The #femmefantale read argon kicks of tomorrow and I’m trying to pick which book I’ll pack in my rucksack with me - help! Which one would you vote for!? Also, what’s your first read going to be? #readathon #bookstagram #instabook #fantasybooks

✨ READATHON TBR ✨
.
.
.
It is no secret that me and readathons don't usually get on. I'm a complete mood reader and don't like to be restricted by tbrs (even ones I've set myself 💁🏻)
.
.
.
But the #femmefantale readathon has come along at the perfect time for me! If you don't know, this readathon is hosted by @jeansthoughts, is running from tomorrow 18th until 25th, and is focused on reading fantasy written by women. There is a whole bingo board you can follow and tick prompts off, but I'm just reading these two books ✌🏻
.
.
.
I was planning to read these two books this next week anyway, as they're the last two books I need to read for my dissertation on the portrayal of librarians in fantasy. I'd planned to get all of my texts read by the end of August so it's worked out perfectly 💃🏻
.
.
.
Strange the Dreamer will be a reread for me, it was a 5⭐ book last year, but Alphabet of Thorn is a new one for me, that I learnt of in one of @jeansthoughts' videos actually!
.
.
.
Are you taking part in this readathon? Do you enjoy taking part in readathons in general?

My TBR for the #femmefantale readathon! I'm really excited to celebrate female fantasy authors (though when do I not), as whilst they're on the rise, it's still a genre that's very much dominated by men. It wouldn't be a tbr without some Juliet Marillier on there, and I tried to include as many unread books as I could. 12 books is a lot in 8 days, but I'm hoping I can do it! *
Are you planning on taking part? What's your tbr? I included the prompts just in case you were interested!

Here's my TBR for @jeansthoughts #femmefantale readathon from the 18th -25th August. It's an opportunity for me to read a couple of books that have been on my shelf for ages, and to finally get stuck into Spin the Dawn! I love female driven fantasy, so what's not to love? 🧙🧝👸🧞🧜🧚 I'm not the best at readathons as I'm always miraculously busy every time, but i can't wait to see what I can get through! Who else is participating, what are your TBRs?

Still really sick so not a lot of reading has been done. It's meant that I've fallen behind in my challenge + it makes me glad that the #femmefantale readathon starts this Sunday.

Are you taking part? What are you reading? My full #TBR will be up later this week, and it includes the Dragon Republic so I'm very excited to get going haha

It’s ONE WEEK until the #mythtakereadathon!! And here’s my TBR 🙌🏻 I feel like this is somewhat ambitious for two weeks, but I’m really excited to get to them all so I hope I can tick them off my TBR! Have you read any of them?
.
.
Besides the MythTakeReadathon, I’ll also be participating in the 24 Hour #BasicallyReadathon AND the #FemmeFanTale readathon in August. I have a full August TBR video coming on Wednesday so I’ll share all the books I hope to read then, but I’m super excited for them all 🙌🏻 Are you taking part in any readathons in August? Let me know! .

Currently reading 📖 Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb. This is the first book I’ve read by Hobb and I’m really liking her writing style. ————————————————
I mentioned a little while ago that I wanted to read more fantasy so this is hopefully the beginning of my mostly fantasy month of reading. There are a few readathons I’m hoping to join in August, #mythtakereadathon (hosted by @afrolicthroughfiction and @beigepages ) and #femmefantale (hosted by @jeansthoughts and @jill.scott.9 ). Hopefully I’ll have time to read a few books for each but I’ll be happy with one considering my uni readings and assignments. Anyway I’ll be posting some TBRs (or more likely a totally unachievable pile of books that fit the prompts but I won’t be able to read) for them soon! .

Are you a fan of readathons? ✨ I feel like I have quite a few readathon related updates! It’s funny because I didn’t used to like them, and now I LOVE them! So much so...
.

I’m co-hosting a readathon with @beigepages as part of #mythtakereads!! I have a whole video announcement to explain bingo board challenges, point scoring systems and the lot, so head to the link in my bio for that! 🙌🏻 we’re both so so excited about this, so please do join us if you can! In August I’m also planning on taking part in the FemmeFanTale readathon hosted by @jeansthoughts and @jill.scott.9 too, so I’m super excited to build a TBR from all the prompts both from ours and theirs! .
.
As for the readathon I’m taking part in NOW, I’m about to finish my FIFTH book for @the.book.junkie.trials! I’ve been reading so quickly lately and I’m THRILLED. Let’s hope the momentum keeps up for August! .

Will you be participating? Are you already considering what to read? #readathon #booktube #fantasy #womenwriters #readwomen

How did I do on my TBR fir March? I read 17 books total. I also participated in 5 readathons!Of the books I planned to read from March 1st, I stopped reading On the Come Up because I just wasn't in the right mindset, I'll read that over the summer. And I'm in the middle of both Night Circus and Children of Bood and Bone. I'm enjoying them both. How did you do in March?

A late #femmefantale conclusion:
I didn’t check off all the boxes and I didn’t read all of the books I’d hoped. However, I did read my first manga since high school, got caught up on my favorite novella series by @gailcarriger, and fell head over heels in love with reading again. Honestly, I’m happy with the amount I read and the books I absorbed. Thanks @jeansthoughts for hosting the perfect readathon for me!
