I saw this tag over on It Starts At Midnight and it just seemed like the perfect bookish complement to the Olympics that I couldn't pass it up! On to the tag:
Ghostly Echoes (Jackaby #3) by William Ritter - I loved every second of the newest installment of a new favorite series!
Blood Red Road (Dust Lands #1) by Moira Young - Saba will do anything to get her kidnapped brother back in the dusty world beyond Silverlake. If you like the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness, you will love this series!
The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare - I usually don't care for love triangles, but I liked how Tessa, Jem, and Will were handled.
The Hope We Seek by Rich Shapero - I only made it to page sixty of this, but I just felt like I was completely missing something important throughout.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - I mean, Gatsby only hosts some of the best summer parties!
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson - Hiro Protagonist is the best sword fighter in the world! The drawing above is one of my favorite pieces of fan art for the character!
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart - Seriously, non-stop twists and turns here!
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness - This one about did me in, but it's definitely one of the best!
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke - It takes it's time to get going, but it's worth every second!
Corduroy by Don Freeman - How could you not love Corduroy?!
My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell - This is easily one of my all-time favorite autobiographies - and it's pretty hysterical - featuring Gerald Durrell, a prominent British naturalist, as a boy while he and his family lived in Corfu in the 1930s.
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness - It has a great hook and it only took me a week to finish the audiobook, but it was got so repetitive and slow that I probably wouldn't have made it if I was reading it in print.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater - The title characters - Gansey, Adam, Ronan, and Noah, plus Blue, make an unstoppable group!
|Forewarning- all of my choices featuring fencing!|
The Princess Bride by William Goldman - Have you studied your Agrippa?
Sharps by K.J. Parker - Bloody good fencing!
The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas - The classic with plenty of action, adventure, and fencing!
That was a fun tag to put together! Thanks again for making this up, Shannon - perfect timing! Since, I have no idea who has done this tag yet, or who wants to, I'm not going to tag anyone in particular, but if you would like to join in please feel free. As for my selections, have you had the opportunity to read any of them? And, can you tell just how much I like fencing?
