So I managed to gather a few more books to read, as I tweeted yesterday. I absolutely LOVE book sales, and it seems Coles at the mall is always having one. Managed to get a few $5 and $2 steals! Grabbed a few fantasy novels, plus a few I usually never go for. Maybe you guys have read some of them before and can fill me in on if they are good or not!
The fantasy list consists of “The Unremembered” by Peter Orullian, “Speak to the Devil” by Dave Duncan, and “The Choir Boats” by Daniel A. Rabuzzi. I suppose the last one is fantasy. It seems that way, but I guess I won’t be completely sure until I start reading it.
The other two books are not fantasy, but looked equally intriguing to me. The first is “The Distant Hours” by Kate Morton (which is apparently the same author as “The Forgotten Garden, which I had almost bought instead!) and the second is “My Name is Memory” by Ann Brashares. I realize that this is the author of “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” and I don’t usually buy real-life books, but this novel seemed different. It has a touch of fantasy added to it, so I decided to pick it up. Plus, being $2 and all, how could I refuse?
So my gift card is all used up now, which makes me sad, but I think I managed to pick out some cool stuff. There were other interesting books there, but some were part of a series and so I didn’t want to grab the 5th book in. The books were 4/5 hardcovers too, which was a bonus! Hardcovers look nice on a bookshelf.
Anyway, progress on The Myth of Kalvartr is going well. I’m actually studying how to create neat looking maps at the Cartographer’s Guild. Anyone interested in creating maps should definitely check that site out. It’s fantastic!
The weekend is over tomorrow. That means back to writing! (not that I never write over the weekend)
