Reading progress update: I've read 27 out of 316 pages.
To Rule the Winds: The Evolution of the British Fighter Force Through Two World Wars Volume 1: Prelude to Air War - The Years to 1914 - Michael C. Fox

For my next book, I decided to tackle one of the histories of the First World War in the air that I had acquired a couple of months back. It's not bad so far, but it has the strangest pagination I have ever encountered:

 

 

In every other book I have read, the Roman numerals for the pages preceding the main text and the Arabic ones for the main text are separate numbering systems. Here, however, they're treated as one and the same. I would love to know the thinking that went into this — assuming that thinking was involved, of course.

Zueinanderfinden ist schwer
Angel of Storms (Millennium's Rule) - Trudi Canavan

Mir war so nach Fantasy. Nach einigen Seiten war mir ganz schnell nicht mehr nach Fantasy. Im groben und ganze war ja alles schön und gut, aber Nr.1) Bücher mit mehreren Erzählsträngen finde ich grundsätzlich anstrengend, aber wenn die dann erst nach 1,75 Büchern aufeinandertreffen dann beginnt man sich doch zu fragen. WARUM?! Ich lese ja häufig Bücher parallel, aber man muss diese Sportart nun wirklich nicht auf die Spitze treiben. Nr. 2) Das ganze Geleier von verschiedenen Welten und das Zustandebringen einer Revolutionsarmee hat 500 Seiten gedauert, nur dass es dann einen 50-seitigen schwer ernüchternden Showdown gab. So spannend waren die Revoluzzer leider nicht. Mit unnötiger Gewalt, Mord und Totschlag habe ich sowieso Probleme, und interessant erzählen lassen sich diese Art von Konflikten seltenst. 

 

Von der Autorin habe ich als Teenie mal eine Serie verschlungen. Jetzt ist die Frage, war die Serie einfach besser oder war ich damals noch leichter zu beeindrucken... mhmm. Und nichtsdestotrotz möchte ich wissen wie es weitergeht. Problem: Wenn ich mir damit zu viel Zeit lasse, dann vergesse ich leider wieder alle grundlegenden Details, wer, wieso und was. Habe ich Lust Teil Drei gleich anzuhängen? Nääääääää!

Wizard's First Rule
Wizard's First Rule - Terry Goodkind

by Terry Goodkind

 

Classic Fantasy and I've heard it's a popular series. Unfortunately I couldn't see the appeal and quite honestly, if it had been a new author I would have DNF'd. It started out enjoyable, making a few allowances for its era and the fact that it's one of the forerunners of tropes that have been overdone ever since.

 

Magic has been separated from the world by a boundary, keeping it in the Midlands which amused me because the part of England where I live is called the Midlands. Richard encounters an unusual woman, Kahlan, and seeks to rescue her from four men following her, only to find out that she's pretty good in a fight.

 

He finds himself on a quest in the company of the woman, a wizard and someone who might be called a ranger (sound familiar?) and fights evil entities who are able to attack near the weakening boundary. Of course his quest will take him to the very heart of evil and he's been chosen to be The Seeker.

 

As familiar as this sounds, it doesn't come over as just another clone. Richard is a likable character as is Kahlan and all the 'good guys'. There are some harrowing moments, but as the story progressed I didn't find myself as engaged as I would have expected, considering the popularity of this series. Parts of it were tedious at best.

 

The mud people were particularly an interesting society and the world building was fairly good, but the pace of the story just didn't keep up. Halfway through I was reading extra just to get it over with. A seriously irritating character was introduced at that point and I really, really just wanted out.

 

Some of the old, very popular Fantasy authors turn out to be really fantastic, but I don't think I'll be reading Goodkind again. Between him and Gemmell I'm feeling put off my older authors in this genre. Life is too short.

Overruled
The Two-Date Rule - Tawna Fenske

Willa meets the hunk of a lifetime while her friends are enjoying strippers.  She assumes he is one of them.  Instead he has a solid job, and a sexy body, and moves she has never before seen.

 

Grady cannot believe he bargained a date with the most beautiful woman he has ever seen over a trip to the bathroom for three women.  He only knows he cannot wait to see her again.  He is rethinking all of his own ideas about dating after meeting Willa.

 

Such a sexy and fun story!  Just what I have come to enjoy from this author.  These characters made me laugh.  That is always welcome in a romance book.  I found this one had a lot of surprises and the best one you must read this book for.  I give this read a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
