Throwback Thursday (10)

Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;
Looking Forward To...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves?
Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start?  Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

I'm sure many have heard of this fantasy series.  I've wanted to get into it for quite some time now.  I even have the first book of the series on my shelf, waiting for me.  And I just can't seem to get to it.  I'm bad, I know.  I've heard great things of this series and really think I would love it and enjoy the story and depth of it.

Goodreads Synopsis:
The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting and bloody confrontations. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen's rule remains absolute, enforced by her dread Claw assassins.

For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, surviving cadre mage of the Second Legion, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities of Genabackis, yet holds out. It is to this ancient citadel that Laseen turns her predatory gaze.

However, it would appear that the Empire is not alone in this great game. Sinister, shadowbound forces are gathering as the gods themselves prepare to play their hand . . . 

Conceived and written on a panoramic scale, Gardens of the Moon is epic fantasy of the highest order--an enthralling adventure by an outstanding new voice.

  5. This is not the easiest book to read, and actually took me several tries, but once you get into it does have a way of grabbing a hold of you. Though I don't think I have the stamina to go through the rest of the series ;)
