Thankfully March moved a little slower than February, even though it had only a few extra days. I am looking forward to May, but I’m also NOT looking forward to June, so it’s a constant struggle for me between wanting time to move faster or slower. I also don’t like aging, soooo maybe slower is the better option, haha. What about you guys?! But anyway, back to Calendar Girls!
For those of you new to Calendar Girls, it’s a new blog event which I am co-hosting with my friend Melanie, and is inspired by Neil Sedaka’s 1961 song Calendar Girl. Just like in the song, we decided to use a specific theme for each month and choose a book based on these themes! The event is meant to incite discussions with other bloggers about books we’ve read and loved, is meant to help bloggers meet other bloggers, and also for bloggers and readers to find out about blogs which they normally may not have come across!
If this sounds like your cup of tea, please check out Melanie’s or my launch post for more info, and sign up if you are still interested after reading everything. Also, if you would like to see examples of past posts, you can look at Melanie and I’s January posts here and here, where the posts of other participants will also be listed. We’d love to have you join in the fun!
And now…without further ado, here is my choice for April’s theme…
– Best High Fantasy –
Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind
I would normally pick a Tolkien book or this category, but as I mentioned in last month’s post, I already chose one for the April theme! Now, I know some of you may have seen me mention this book or series a few times, and you might be sick of it, but it really is one of my favourites! I love the first book (the one above) the most, although the series as a whole (except for the ending trilogy…which ended up not being an ending at all, because Goodkind couldn’t stop writing about the characters and the world, and I don’t blame him…) is one of my favourites. Many of the characters will remain with me (and have already done so for years and years, since I was in high school when I finished this series), and the setting, as well as the magic will stay with me as well. I actually ended up making two role play boards using the world and magic system from these books (with a disclaimer of course), back in the day when I used to role play, and it was a lot of fun.
But what about all of you?! Which high fantasy book and/or series is the best for you?!
