Even though we didn't have lessons on Monday we still wanted to talk about books. We met at Christie's place this time. Her apartment is floral and girlie. She even has a pink retro kitchen. She definitely has a knack for interior design as everything in her home is perfect, stylish and finished.
We're currently reading the Damask Circle Novels by Keri Arthur. We all loved the first book (see my review here) and can't wait to read the second. A bit of supernatural romance is exactly what we need. It's so much fun to read these books together and to talk about every small detail that we've noticed.
This week we talked about books that have the magical ability to make you hooked from the first page. We all really like the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire. I've been a fan of these books ever since the first one came out. October is strong, fierce and snappy. I love the dialogue, the world building and all the different quirky characters. I look forward to reading the next one very much. I usually order my copy months in advance. I can read these books again and again. My favorite character is the Luidaeg. She's witty, cutting and mysterious and her house is fantastic.
I never have an idea of where the series is going. Every time something completely unexpected happens and I never have any idea where the stories are going, only that they will result in a great plot. Read this unpredictable, adrenaline packed and original series. It's absolutely crazy and amazing!
