Here There Be Books (BL)

I love books with great characters who go on adventures and/or solve mysteries re: invading aliens/vampires/etc. I blog about those books at Here There Be Books!


This is the BookLikes thingy for HTBB.

Abhorsen (The Abhorsen Trilogy)

Abhorsen - Garth Nix I have put off reading this for AGES, and furthermore I think I started reading it once before and then put it down. The first half of the story was VERY familiar, so much so that I wondered if I’d actually read the WHOLE book and just forgotten.This is my favorite kind of Garth Nix story: excellent writing, wonderful characters, exciting and emotional storyline, and lots of interesting worldbuilding stuff! I’m sad that this is the end of the Abhorsen trilogy (though I think there’s still a book of short stories left?) but reading it was a wonderful experience! Yay, [a:Garth Nix|8347|Garth Nix|]!(This mini-review was originally posted here.)
