There’s nothing more exciting to a reader than discovering a new favourite book. Unfortunately, we don’t always know what books will do it for us. Sometimes a book that seems interesting ends up being a disappointment and sometimes you get pleasantly surprised by a book you didn’t think you’d like. When I recommend a favorite book of mine to a friend, I can’t help but be a little jealous of them. They are about to start a fantastic journey. I wish I could read a book knowing it will be one of my favorites.
The closest thing I will ever get to that feeling is this right here – Vanessa and Tamara were gushing about a new book (a series actually) and highly recommended it to me. We have very similar reading taste so of course I was intrigued.
Magic? Parallel universes? A magician who is one of the rare few who can travel between the worlds? An adventure to save all the worlds? Yes, please. I love all of these ingredients.
I felt the thrill of “Oh yes, this is going to be good” and I went into the read knowing it would be something I’d love. Let me tell you, it has definitely lived up to the hype.
Now excuse me. If you need me, I’ll be over here reading.
