Let's Do This...

Like I said in the last post, the month of may was my exams, and then about a week ago I found out that I failed two of them, so I've been really rubbish at posting on this blog. But everything is almost over, I'm just about free for the summer, so I figured; lets do this!

The last challenge frankly, was a cop out. Really rubbish, and I can't believe I even chose it!

This time, it's something a little bit better; Chose a book for the month of July that is set in a completely fictional world.

Examples of this type of book is: Any Raymond E. Feist book, Tolkien, Game of Thrones (though how closely it resembles the war of the roses is insane), Terry Pratchett's Disk World, Waylander/Druss the Legen by David Gemmell. There are so, so many more but none I can think of now.

This month, I'm going to be reading Magician by Raymond E. Feist. I'm pretty sure I've got the version that is both parts of the Riftwar Saga, but I'm not 100% sure. My fiance has pestered me and pestered me to read it for years, and I'm finally doing it.

Goodreads blurb: At Crydee, a frontier outpost in the tranquil Kingdom of the Isles, an orphan boy, Pug, is apprenticed to a master magician—and the destinies of two worlds are changed forever.

Suddenly the peace of the Kingdom is destroyed as mysterious alien invaders swarm the land. Pug is swept up into the conflict but for him and his warrior friend, Tomas, an odyssey into the unknown has only just begun.

Tomas will inherit a legacy of savage power from an ancient civilization. Pug’s destiny is to lead him through a rift in the fabric of space and time to the mastery of the unimaginable powers of a strange new magic.

Now I might be cheating a bit, because I am already like 100 pages in, and so far, it's awesome! Like, so much better than I thought it was going to be you can't believe it.

Let me know which books you're reading :D and don't forget to send me reviews of books you liked or didn't like :)
