I promised you two editions to this series within one week, so here you go. Today the letter is D, though if you know your alphabet then you probably could of worked that out- maybe I should mix it up and confuse you all.
Memorable Books I have read beginning with the Letter…
I couldn’t possibly only choose two books for this one, it turns out I read a lot of books that start with D. But I have managed to cut it down to three, which I am quite proud of, so lets get started.
First of all, I have to mention a book that was from a new found favourite author of last year and that was Mary E Pearson, with her new book Dance of Thieves. I adored this fantasy novel, and the sequel is one of my most anticipated books for this year. It truly is a book that I think all fantasy lovers will enjoy, its got a great romance, lots of action, and tons of political tension.
Another fantast novel but this time actually from one of my favourite historical fiction writers, Darien by C F Iggulden is a fabulous epic fantasy, with a super magic system and lots of history and politics. I adored this book, and it got me out of my big reading slump of 2017.
Then finally, one of very few sci-fi novels that I have ever deemed to be a favourite, The Diabolic by S J Kincaid is an amazing duology about a modified being having to take the place of her human in a dangerous court setting. Seriously, even if you aren’t a sci-fi lover, you should look at picking this up along with the sequel The Empress.
Books on my TBR beginning with the Letter…
I love a good retelling, and Damsel by Elana K Arnold looks to be a sleeping beauty retelling. I cant say I’ve ever read one of those so its definitely high on my list of books to get to. It is just sitting on my shelf waiting to be chosen. Probably be the next retelling book I pick up.
And then another retelling of sorts, I would have to say Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. This is a book I have had for a while, but for some reason I have been struggling to get hold of the rest of the books in the series so I don’t want to start it until I have them all. A Wizard of Oz retelling definitely sounds like something that I will want to marathon through.
So that is it for the letter D, make sure to check back for E. Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and what you thought about them.
