Believe the Unbelievable {Monthly Motif July Check In}

This month’s motif is my jam. I read more fantasy books than anything else. There’s just something kind of fun about unbelievable elements intertwined throughout your book. It keeps you guessing!

Believe the Unbelievable

“This month it’s all about fantasy. Epic fantasy, urban fantasy, fairytales, magic, etc.- just take your pick.”

    1. Nice! You got some great books in there. I haven’t read any of those but I’ve been meaning to read the Brandon Sanderson series.

  2. I read Neil Gaiman’s ‘Stardust’ for this one and thoroughly enjoyed it. Here is my review:

  3. Read The Last Dragon Slayer (Deathsworn Arc #1) by Martyn Stanley. It was short- 9 chapters. Not nearly as bad as the last book but not that great either. Apparently it fuses fantasy with religion and will take an athiestic view. Which is fine. It just wasn’t that great of a story. It focused too much on 2 particular characters out of the 5 or 6. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2065629841?book_show_action=false

  4. Finally I read the first book of “a game of thrones” by George R.R. Martin!

  5. I read Personal Demon by Kelley Armstrong – (Women of the Otherworld, #8)
    https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1698228309

  6. Read Sanctuary 12 (Fallen Gods Saga 1) by T.W. Malpass. Pretty creepy moments. 9 characters to keep track of but I loved it. even the minor errors didn’t stop me. couldn’t wait to see how they all fit together. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2054771957

  7. I read Rise Of The Dragons by Morgan Rice. I was vastly disappointed. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2045961028

    1. @Dorothy. Awwww ☹️

      1. I know. It was promising but fell so horribly short. The book I just finished was much better @tanya

  8. I read Once Upon an Autumn Eve by Dennis L. McKiernan. I love this series!!
