The Feyguard series by Anthea Sharp (and Feyland)
Spark - Anthea Sharp
Royal - Anthea Sharp
Marny: Feyguard Book 3 - Anthea Sharp

I recently finished reading the last of the books in the Feyguard series by Anthea Sharp - Marny. I first encountered the books about the magic world Feyland on Wattpad. Since I loved the first book, I wanted to read the rest of the series. Eventually, I bought both the first series - Feyland, then the second one too - Feyguard.

Basically both series are set in the (near?) future. There are computer games that you can enter, like Star Trek's Holodeck. Throughout the books you get to know several people and in the first book it's Jennet and Tam. At the beginning of the first book (later a sort of prequel) Jennet finds out that the game Feyland is connected to a real Fairyland, but not a cute Disneyland type of faerie, a really dark world where you can end up injured or even dead. And your injuries sustained in game can carry over to the real world. In the 'real' Feyland the main characters encounter various magical creatures, need to complete quests etc, rather like in a computer game, but of course here, the stakes are higher.

I liked the whole Feyland world. The 'real' world is very well done too. I also liked all the characters but I think my favorite was Marny. In the end, she gets her own book (book 3 of Feyguard).

The plot is fairly straightforward, but not in any way dull. If you don't like YA books you might not like this series, but it's a well written, well researched series of books and it's not too dark. If you like YA fantasy I think you'll like these two series. You can still read some of the books for free on Wattpad, so if you're there you might want to take a look.

Reading progress update: I've read 51 out of 292 pages.
Think Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist - Allen B. Downey

1. There's only so much of this I can read at a time without my eyes bleeding. 


2.  I need to clean my room. 


3.   This is a secondary, suggested but not required, text.  I got this one as a free PDF, and another as a dollar Kindle book, and my massively expensive one hundred dollar book is on the way.    This is killing time until I get it, but I'm going to clean and get rid of some books first.  I'll list them when I'm done going through my books and if anyone wants them, feel free to claim them.

I keep reading these books instead of blogging
Blogging For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech)) - Amy Lupold Bair

The more of these I read the more convinced I am that my blogging issues exist between keyboard and chair.

Excellent overview of starting blogging with some reminders of issues and ethics and it includes a chapter on anonymous blogging with copious reminders of how difficult it is.

The Christmas Promise (McClendon Holiday) - Sean D. Young

This is book #2, in The McClendon Holiday series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in order.


Jennifer is suffering from a broken heart and being ashamed.  She travels for a vacation and meets the man who will change her perception of the world, as she knows it.  Will she be able to turn to him when it counts?


Simeon falls head over heels for Jennifer almost immediately.  They are certainly attracted to one another from the start.  When tragedy strikes - can he be forgiven?


This was a book that was filled with so much.  The compelling story tells of how real and harsh the world can be.  These characters find love in such a beautiful place.  I love the heat and the simple that are in this book.  I cannot wait to read the next installment to the series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
