Deep Magic (Deep Magic #1) by Gillian St. Kevern
Deep Magic - Gillian St. Kevern

The ending seemed as tangled as Dewy's hair at one point, and was dealt with it the same way - cut short. But on the whole - pure magic. I loved it to pieces :) 
And yeah, Vegemite... @.@  lol

Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling

The review below was based on my first read of the Harry Potter books, ages ago and in Dutch. Updated reviews will follow after a reread (in English) I plan to do.

 

I took me years to start reading Harry Potter. I think the main reason was my parents didn't like fantasy, and I used to think this would mean I wouldn't like it either.

I'm glad I tried Harry Potter anyway. For me, like I said, it's not covered in sauce of youth memories. And as a book I liked it, but didn't think it was that great. I liked the world JK Rowling created but saw that it was far from flawless.

Sometimes it feels like you like everything around it better than the original book. It is quite hard to describe...

The Shadow Mark (Lords of Davenia, #2) by Mason Thomas
The Shadow Mark (Lords of Davenia Book 2) - Mason Thomas

Warning: 
NO sex. 
NO romantic relationship or indication thereof until the very end of the book.

Come to think of it, can't call it bromance either.

All of the above are perfect for me :p

***
Very good adventure/suspense. 
My only disappointment, I never felt much for Kane. The character was pretty flat and never came to shine.

DNF at 16%.
Rise of the Dragons (Kings and Sorcerers--Book 1) - Morgan Rice

I'm bored.

 

The first chapter showed promise, but I started feeling like I was reading off a Fantasy template and just couldn't get involved in the story.

Ink and Shadows (Ink and Shadows #1) by Rhys Ford
Ink and Shadows - Rhys Ford

UPDATE:
While reading the length of this book, one star. <----- That pretty much sums up the state of editing in this book. Hence the rating.

==================

I was sooooo looking froward to this book! This is pre-Kai Gracen universe, I was told. But the moment I dug in.... *sigh* I expected horror elements, of course, but not like this :/

This is a horror, alright. This. Is. Frigging terrible. Who "edited" this book? They really need to be fired. Like 3 years ago. Before this mess came out :/

Warning: Misplaced modifiers, POV ping-pong, adjectives (ab)used as nouns.

I lost the story behind this terror! :/ Sure, horror was never my poison, but it's on me, not the author. I still love Kai Gracen, but he certainly received much more attention from people who somewhat know how to apply English grammar to a written text. It wasn't perfect, but it was readable. Lack of editing in its entirety, however, I cannot forgive. Not where it comes to a published book. Not when that book costs you 7 bucks :/

I am beyond disappointed and this.... this close to DNF.


66% After acquiring a massive headache that not even sake can heal, I am DNF-ing. My brains says No. More!
