After MIA July in August I’m slowly getting back on track. I’m in the middle of reading of four different books!

Storm’s Heart (Elder Races book #2)

by Thea Harrison

This on is a carry on from June. I liked the first book of the series and jumped onto the second right away. I have trouble getting into the story. I’m not against tiny female protagonists but have to work at getting to understand their perspective since for most story heroines I’m a giant – I’m 6 ft tall. (180 cm) With books where main female character is admired by her short height as a something to strive at I get put off and need a really good story to pull me in. Still waiting for it to happen with this book…

The Annotated Hobbit: The Hobbit, Or, There and Back Again

by J.R.R. Tolkien, Douglas A. Anderson

I wanted to get back at tackling the BF challenge. The book from the challenge is actually Fellowship of the Ring but I went a little overboard this year with repeated watching of Hobbit and LOTR movies and decided to start with Hobbit. I might have overdone it a bit with the Annotated version and the footnotes are starting to be less wow and more tiresome. I will definitely be doing a review soon and let off some steam on all the issues I have with this book…

Frankenstein

by Mary Shelley

This is one of two books I’m reading for my RL book club in August. I’ve barely started the book but I’ve already watched a BBC Secret life of Books documentary on how it came to be. Promo for the video is HERE. I guess I’m getting into research mode for our group discussion.

Prince of Wolves (The Grey Wolves #1)

by Quinn Loftis

I was going trough my Kindle library one night and stumbled on this free ebook. I forgot I had it and I’ve seen some nice reviews on it. I started reading it a bit and decided to give it a go this August. It has been a while since I’ve read a good Kindle freebie. So far is very much YA material.

I’ve just realized that all the books I’m reading now are fantastical in theme. Coincidence?

I don’t think so! I’ve been exhausted by everyday stuff and little books out of this world are just what I wanted lately.
