Down The TBR Hole #2

tbhrhole

It’s time for another adventure to my Goodreads! The previous post I made was so fun that of course I had to do more. Down The TBR Hole was created by Lia @ Lost In A Story.

“Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!”

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao 

Synopsis:
An East Asian fantasy reimagining of The Evil Queen legend about one peasant girl’s quest to become Empress–and the darkness she must unleash to achieve her destiny.

Eighteen-year-old Xifeng is beautiful. The stars say she is destined for greatness, that she is meant to be Empress of Feng Lu. But only if she embraces the darkness within her. Growing up as a peasant in a forgotten village on the edge of the map, Xifeng longs to fulfill the destiny promised to her by her cruel aunt, the witch Guma, who has read the cards and seen glimmers of Xifeng’s majestic future. But is the price of the throne too high?

Because in order to achieve greatness, she must spurn the young man who loves her and exploit the callous magic that runs through her veins–sorcery fueled by eating the hearts of the recently killed. For the god who has sent her on this journey will not be satisfied until his power is absolute.

Justice Calling by Annie Bellet 

Synopsis:
Gamer. Nerd. Sorceress.

Jade Crow lives a quiet life running her comic book and game store in Wylde, Idaho. After twenty-five years fleeing from a powerful sorcerer who wants to eat her heart and take her powers, quiet suits her just fine. Surrounded by friends who are even less human than she is, Jade figures she’s finally safe.

As long as she doesn’t use her magic.

When dark powers threaten her friends’ lives, a sexy shape-shifter enforcer shows up. He’s the shifter world’s judge, jury, and executioner rolled into one, and he thinks Jade is to blame. To clear her name, save her friends, and stop the villain, she’ll have to use her wits… and her sorceress powers.

Except Jade knows that as soon as she does, a far deadlier nemesis awaits.

The book was available for free on the Kindle Store.

Steam Wishlist Clean Up

steamwish

Since Steam summer sales are coming up sometime later this month (I think), I decided to clean up my wishlist a little bit so I actually only have games I’m still interested in there. Yes, this was very much inspired by the Down the TBR Hole thing, except instead of going through the list little by little I just went through the whole thing at once.

May Video Game Wrap Up

may

It’s that time again! I feel like this has again been a pretty lazy gaming month, but when I think about it I actually finished a game this month so that’s actually pretty good! My summer vacation started a couple of weeks ago so I should have more time and energy to do fun things and hopefully be a bit more active blogger again.

Anyway, video games!  Continue reading “May Video Game Wrap Up”

34499221

To Kill A Kingdom by  Alexandra Christo

Synopsis:
Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.

The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?

Buddy read with Lauren and some other Books and Tea people.

Game Review: Jurassic Park

header

Considering I’m a huge fan of the first Jurassic Park movie I took way too long to get my hands on this game and even longer to actually play it. Jurassic Park: The Game is one of Telltale’s older games, released a year before The Walking Dead, which is probably why I hadn’t heard about it much until I accidentally stumbled on it on Steam.
