Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. It is when we show off a book from our TBR that we’re looking forward to reading.
I’ve seen many tagged posts on my reader, most about that never ending TBR we all have and I thought why not give it a try?
So this one is about picking a book from your Goodreads TBR that you’re really looking forward to reading, and for me, Kate Elliott has to be one of the best fantasy writers when it comes to crafting new worlds. Well, that was the case with Cold Magic – Kate Elliott and from other what other reviewers say, her other books are just as detailed. If I go on holiday this summer to either Asia or the Caribbean I most probably will either start her Crossroads series or carry on with her Spiritwalker trilogy. Either way this is one author I would highly recommend and I hope she will write more cultural fantasies in the near future 😀
