  1. Ooooh, Circe and The Night Circus are excellent choices for ports of call! Wild Beauty is a good book, too. Have you read other books by Anna-Marie McLemore, or will this be your first read of hers?

    The cover for Falcons of Fire and Ice caught my eye. I don’t think I’ve heard of that one before… Ooooh, and part of it takes place in Iceland! ❤ I might have to check this one out!

    1. Glad to hear more love for circe and night circus. I read McLemore’s when the moon was ours and adored it so this be the next book of hers to check out.

      The falcons book is what first caught me eye but libraries only had the owl killers so I read that first. The owl killers was bizarre and awesome. So then I gave in and bought the falcons one. In fact in looking at her website to double check the title, she has tons of books I wasn’t aware of. The ports of plunder list just got longer. Eeeek. Erm. Arrr! Lovely comment matey.

  2. Some great destinations ye have there cap’n! I’d be interested in seeing what ye think of the Night Circus. Oh I had a good time there. Got so swept up that I couldna tell if it was real or not. Good times, cap’n, good times. I hope the same happens to you.

    And I’ll be looking into the Paladin of Souls too this year. It’s about time I return to Chalion, if that’s set there too.

    1. I be excited about me list so far. I have already read one book off the list. I am still pondering on what I think of it.

      And I am so excited for the Night Circus. I so hope it lives up to the hype! I think it will based on the crew’s glee about it.

      As for Chalion, I am looking forward to it. I just can’t decide if I should reread the first or not. Decisions, decisions.

      Hope all yer reading in 2019 floats yer boat! Arrr!

  3. Great list! I hope you like To Say Nothing of the Dog, but IIRC you are a fan of Willis so I think that one’s a fairly safe bet. I think it’s my favorite of her books that I’ve read so far.

    1. I am waiting to read that until I have time to sit, ignore the world, and savour. I don’t want to rush it because I do think it is going to be stellar! Ye are the one who reminded me to read it after all 🙂

    1. I haven’t read many reviews of the sparrow. I picked it up in a used book store several years ago for a steal. Then it sat. I do think it deserves to be read. Glad to hear that ye liked this one. Re-reading the synopsis made me excited all over again!

    1. I do think I am in the minority with blood and bone. I just finished it and I didn’t like most of it. Sad but true. I am still thinking through it enough to write a review. And the lie tree was also another that has made me think. I didn’t mean to read two books on the list so quickly but the holds on the library came through so it was time! Thanks for the comment matey!
