Steamsale

Got 2 new games on the steamsale.

The premise seems cool I remember being intruiged by this one some time ago. Basicly you die and need to solve your own murder. Ive played a little now and like it so far.

Investigation, action and exploration. Sounds like something Im gonna like!

I want to get Monster Hunter World to but the price is a bit steep…… Plus I am not sure I would enjoy the upgrade system. Im not very into crafting and upgrading gear.

Harry Potter

As this post goes live its my birthday!

So get to know me better with some Harry Potter themed things.
Not all from Slytherin are asshats.

Expected publication: 2019

Last one and my most wanted and most hated all at the same time. Doors of stone by Patrick Rothfuss. Im pretty sure I need to reread the first 2 in this gigantic trilogy cause its been so long now.  But this is about as good as it gets. Wonderful worldbuilding, intresting magicsystem and complex characters.

Expected publication: Not for a while…

What upcomming releases are you waiting for?

Rapid fire book tag

Cred to GirlReading for this! I have taken away a few of the questions though.

 

E-Book Or Physical Book?
Physical books for  sure! I do read on my phone sometimes but cant go for long.

Paperback Or Hardback?
Paperback unless its a superspecial book. Im not made of money.

Online Or In-Store Book Shopping?
My town have a crappy selection so I do most of my bookshopping online, BUT nothing compares to a real store!

Trilogies Or Series?
Either or as long as I can see an enddate in the next few years. (Looking at YOU Doors of stone!)

The Last Book You Finished?
The 7 deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

Top Three Favourite Genres?
Urban fantasy, fantasy, mystery

Character Or Plot?
This is something thats hard to say….. But I think Id rather have hollow characters than nothing happening.

Long Or Short Books?
Long please! 500 pages are nice!

Audiobooks: Yes Or No?
Nope. I fall asleep.

Book To Movie Or Book To TV?
Book to TV. Gives time to develop properly.

33+

So summer have gone bonkers and I cant deal with the heat anymore.

I have a reading slump, gaming slump and movie slump.

Please send icecream.

Guild Wars 2 Festival

The Festival of the Four Winds AND Crown Pavilion are back as a permanent summer festival! This have been a long time comming for sure. Even though Ive been in a disagreement with Anet for a while and not playing as much, this brought me back. It feels like this is the largest festival they have done with both the Bazaar map, multiple races and the combat arena.

Im happy too see that the combat arena with the bosses is not nerfed to the ground as it stands now. I really hope this might be a turning point for me to get back in to the game!

Do you play Guild Wars 2? What do you think of the festival? Let me know!

7 deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

Agatha Christie meets Groundhog day with a slight scifi/fantasy twist.

Debut novel by Stuart Turton and what a way to start! This is so creative and wonderful.

Now I could give you a description of the plot but this one is best to go in blind based on what I wrote above.

Minor spoiler

I love how Bell’s insight on “Ill be who I choose” is reflecting in the end with Aiden and Anna. He choose a new path.

Spoiler end

Mistborn

Fantasy from Brandon Sanderson and its really good.

The world the characters the magic…. Wonderful! I just have 2 minor issues.
1. The classic;
P1 “Im a nobody” P2 “No! You are special!” P1 “Really?” P2 “Wow such power! This is how it works…”
But I guess its how we as reader will get the info the smoothest/quickest way.
2. The constant use of the word Frowned. I swear if I took a shot every time while reading I would be dunk as a skunk.

This is a trilogy and the first book is my overall fav but can we talk about the ending in the last book? Oh no, spoilers…

What I can say is that the ending is EPIC. But, it took so very long to get there. Second book also suffered from the middle part being really slow. First book feels so different from the other 2 in the series.

First one is a solid 5 stars rating second is 3 stars for me. Most of the last book is 3 stars. Then the end begins and its 5 stars, therefore I pick 4 for the book as a whole.

Soooo a thing happened.

Kinda got carried away and accidentally removed the whole blog when I tried to move it.

The old saying once you learn it you dont forget clearly have not experienced brainfog. Anyhow. Lets make this a new start shall we?
