Follow Friday - Reading Now


Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Question: What books are you reading right now? What do you think of them?
Well that's a very easy question for a change.  I'm currently reading Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier.  It's a slow moving book but that was expected.  Sometimes I'm hit and miss with Marillier.  There are some that I've loved, some that I've been meh about.  This one I'm liking so far.



I'm listening to Breadcrumbs, which has been a very pleasant surprise  It's middle-grade.  I would call it magical realism more than fantasy.  I'm not sure what's real and what's Hazel's imagination.  I like the way it captures the childhood blurring between fantasy and reality.  The book has a male narrator.  When I saw that it seemed like an odd choice, but the narration really works for the book.

Interesting picks! I can't really handle audio books. I listened to one briefly that was my mom's read but I just didn't care for it. Maybe it was the narrator, or I'm just too old school and want to do the reading myself! Who knows! :P

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT weekend!

Old Follower :)

I've loved a lot of Marillier's books! Wildwood dancing and Cybele's Secret are my favourite two, oh and Heart's Blood which was interesting and kept me on my toes. ALthough I keep feeling like there should be more books in both of those series'!

Her Sevenwater's books were interesting I think.

I've heard mixed reviews about Shadowfell so far but I'm definitely still keen to give it a go!

What is breadcrumbs about? Is it a retelling of Hansel and Gretel?

I love a good fantasy story - whatever age it's aimed at.

I know you've already visited my post for this week but I'm leaving the link here just in case anyone is passing and feels like dropping in ;)

I looooove Juliet Marillier! Her Daughter of the Forest is my favorite book of all time! I've read it seven times :) anyway, I haven't had a chance to read this one yet. I'm glad you're enjoying it though!
