Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters

It’s been two weeks since my last Funny Friday, but for some reason, I couldn’t get into writing. But here we are again with two novels. Yes, only two single books. I thought I’d add one more, but somehow it didn’t fit. It’s not going to be a long post [I think].

Let’s start with a two-author story. Two fantastic authors that made an amazing job writing this book. The one and only…

Good Omens

Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

And try to tell me that book’s no good, I dare you!

The lazy or super busy ones had an occasion to listen to the adaptation of this story on BBC Radio. It was a rather good adaptation, so if you’ll ever have another chance just listen to it.

I’m not going to write a review, mostly because I just found some really nice ones on GR and I feel mine wouldn’t be as good, I mean, check out the first paragraph of this one: Jeremy Zerbe’s Reviews.

Why do I love this book? Continue reading “Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters”

Monsters, quirky humor and first glimpses of main story

I’ve finally started re-reading this series! One book down, other are waiting for their turn :D. It might take a while, but damn it’s worth it!

A little message to every fantasy lover out there: if you still haven’t read the Witcher series – what are you waiting for? Yes, re-reading these assured me that my previous warm feelings weren’t misplaced. It’s a fantastic book and a great introduction to something bigger.

I could just pass on the whole Goodreads blurb, but I kind of like it, so here it is:

Geralt of Rivia is a witcher. A cunning sorcerer. A merciless assassin. And a cold-blooded killer.

His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world.

But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good. . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.

These stories will let you meet Geralt and some of the other characters that show up in the main series. They will give you some background, show you the world and explain how Geralt came from curing a curse to requesting a Law of Surprise.

Funny Friday – geeky memoirs that made me laugh

I’ve promised you these two reviews for a while now and since I wasn’t in a mood to write about the other books that should be on today’s episode of Funny Friday – here they come.

Both of these books got into my hands in audio format. I thought it would be easier to get through the memoirs this way since I don’t normally read this genre. Right now I know I wouldn’t have trouble reading through no matter what format would they be, but the fact that both of these books were read by the authors made them even more amazing!

Since the rule states “ladies first” here it is :D. Plus the cover is really cute (well, it has Felicia on it, so duh!). Continue reading “Funny Friday – geeky memoirs that made me laugh”

More cupcakes, sexy beard and gangs

It’s adorable, it’s funny and it has a mysterious bearded man who just happens to make that look work for him (which is not easy). Add to that a murder, some far from legal actions and some delicious cooking and you’ve got another great book from D.E. Haggerty.

And who is this creepy, yet somehow hot mysterious guy who keeps sneaking into Anna’s house? Is he really a gang member? Will he kill her if she’ll get too close to solving the mystery? Continue reading “More cupcakes, sexy beard and gangs”
