What have I been tuning into during August? Well, I’ve been reading Terry Brooks’ Genesis of Shannara series which is quite delightful. I have to admit, I completely forgot how much I love getting wrapped into a high fantasy series, even though it requires the patience to weather through the setup. I admit though, I’ve been pining for a good YA book or urban fantasy series as of late.
However, this month has turned into the month of reading! I managed to read the first and second of the Genesis of Shannara books and followed that up with Shootout at Roulement Ridge by Einar Mercier, Dragonstone by Paula Millhouse, and What You Need by Landra Graf. It’s been a basking in indie authors sort of month, and I’m thrilled to read the works of such talented individuals. August has done a good job of reminding me of my favorite obsession: reading.
To cap it off though, even if you haven’t read the books, I think any fantasy fan can get excited about the Shannara show that’s airing this upcoming January.
