Throwback Thursday (104)

I found this picture of Trinity College Library, and thought it would work for this meme with a little play with lighting and adding the words.


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:

This one came up on a freebie Friday at Barnes & Nobles, and being a fantasy fan....well, I had to have it. :) I know it's the sixth book in all, but it's the first in the Last Chronicle of the Dread Empire series.

Goodreads Synopsis:
It has ended. It begins again. 

In Kavelin: Lady Nepanthe's new life with the wizard Varthlokkur is disturbed by visions of her lost son, while King Bragi Ragnarson and Michael Trebilcock scheme to help the exiled Princess Mist re-usurp her throne—under their thumb. In Shinsan: a pig-farmer's son takes command of Eastern Army, while Lord Kuo faces plots in his council and a suicide attack of two million Matayangans on his border. But in the desert beyond the Dread Empire: a young victim of the Great War becomes the Deliverer of an eons-forgotten god, chosen to lead the legions of the dead. 

And the power of his vengeance will make a world's schemes as petty as dust, blown wild in the horror that rides the east wind.

This volume marks the beginning of the end. Reap the East Wind is the first step on the road to the long-delayed final chapter of Glen Cook's legendary Dread Empire series.

I've heard back from a few bloggers that they would like to join in this meme post, so I'm adding a Linky for you to join in.  Grab the picture above, and join in.  All I ask, is if you can acknowledge my blog in the post so others know where to come back to and join as well.  Thank you.

  5. I don't think I'm a fan of fantasy books, I could read one but it has to be awesome, they are fun and all but I don't know. A book I have and I've been wanting to read has to be The Third Twin by Ken Follet, I've started it twice but I can't seem to get past chapter 4, I don't know why, I liked the movie and I'm sure the book is better. I do want to see how the real plot unfolds.
