My Top Series of All-Time

Hey guys!

Whenever someone asks me to recommend a book to them, I get so torn between which book to choose because it’s not necessary that what I’ve liked in a particular book work for all. While some books are good, some are great, but a few become memorable, and that last part is completely subjective on how and what you were feeling in real life while reading the story.

For me, the following series come to my mind whenever I’m discussing recommendations. All the series are fictional and are arranged by genres. They are in not in any particular rank and only the first book is linked.

ALSO PRIME DAY IS HERE, which means IT’S TIME FOR A BOOK HAUL!

 

AND let’s not forget that MY BOOK, Shards,  IS ON SALE (July 16-19th)!

A Court of Thorns and Roses Series

This series has equal amounts of romance, action, and tragedy and you soon enough care and love all the characters.

The Kingkiller Chronicles

This series is heavy. It has unparalleled world building, story telling and is character driven. It incorporates of aspects of a perfect fictional book that you never want to stop reading it.


Worthy Mentions

The Inheritance Cycle

This was the first book I read that made me fall in love with dragons.

 

The Ascendance Trilogy

This series was the first I read which included politics, threat of treason, and a witty-and-stupidly-brave main character. This was soon followed by The remnant The Remnant Chronicles Series and The Winner’s Trilogy.

It is steampunk. Of course I like it!

 


This list will be updated when (and if) I find books that I love more than these.

The Alchemists of Loom: Review

31549513After reading all of Air Awakens series in less than two weeks, I just had to read this. Elise incorporated Dragons, Alchemy, and Steampunk in one gorgeous book, how could I ever not read this!

The writing was different than what Elise had done before, and it fit nicely into the setting of the book. It was POV chapters in third-person narrative. The story mainly revolved around Cvareh, a Dragon, who is on a mission; and Arianna known as the White Wraith – the enemy of all Dragons.

My favorite POV would have to be Petra with all her sass, she is a smart character, and I want to read more of her. Next would be Cvareh, in the course of this book, he grew the most in my opinion, from not caring about almost anything, to going lengths to accomplish something for someone else. Florence, was simply a joy to read.
Arianna, on the other hand, turned a bit annoying from time to time. Her background (and source of her vengeance) was not fully revealed, which I would have preferred. Leona, or more aptly named by Petra as the ‘King’s Bitch’ was a handful in the short chapters of her POV. It successfully also gave a glimpse of how ruthless Dragons can be and why Arianna might despise them.

The world building was amazing. It gave the steampunk vibe, which I absolutely loved, and incorporated elements of Alchemy and Magic seamlessly. That all being said, this is book one in The Loom Saga. There wasn’t a ton of action or romance, that I was hoping for. I also felt their ‘adventure’ to reach The Alchemists Guild was a bit anticlimactic.

Having read Air Awakens, I can positively say that climax-building, plot-twists and cliffhangers are Elise’s strong points, but they weren’t fully present in this book, and that leaves me on the edge of what to expect from the other books in this series.
I’ll be craving for more steampunk action, more angst romance, and a ton of world building from the second book, The Dragons of Nova *Now to wait until I get my hands on it*

Overall 3.5 out of 5 stars.
