  1. The dates for the sale: January 14th – 20th, 2021 Link: https://mlwangbooks.com/spfbo-finalist-super-sale/ There are quite a few on this list that have high ratings on Goodreads. The SPFBO was started by Mark Lawrence, author of The Broken Empire series, among many others. SPFBO: Self Published Fantasy Blog Off, a competition to find the best self published fantasy book for a given year.

  2. Ok, I’ll start. I first came across Mike’s Book Reviews and that just opened a floodgate to other recommendations to include increasing my TBR list tenfold. Other ones I enjoy include Brian Lee Durfee’s channel, Slowly Red, Petrik Leo’s channel, and Philip Chase’s channel. There are others, but these are the ones I keep going back to again and again. I get the most laughs from Brian Lee Durfee’s channel. HT to Mike’s channel for pointing out Brian’s channel. What are your favorites?
  3. Part 1 (chapters 1-23) thoughts (non-spoilers) On the back of the book, it says that the war is over and Tomas sets out to reclaim what what was his once he has returned to his hometown. I think this is exactly what Part 1 is all about. It appears to me that the author has really focused on character development in this section. I already have a few favorite characters and a couple I want to learn more about. I’m intrigued to see how the author will develop Sir Eland, for some reason. I feel that the puzzle pieces are being placed strategically around the board for what is going to take place in Part 2. The back of the book ends with saying that the war is only just beginning. I feel that is what Part 2 is going to be about. Onto Part 2!
  4. Does checking out books from the library count? Probably not, but I’ll share anyway. I may have to renew a few of these a couple times to allow myself enough time to read them all. I’m making fantasy and sci-fi more of a priority this year. (w/ other genres sprinkled in here and there).
  5. I recently started using my Kindle Paperwhite again. I love it and daily review the Kindle Daily Deals to try and find an inexpensive copy of books from my TBR.
  6. I recently read Blacktop Wasteland by S.A. Cosby. It falls in the suspense/thriller genre and it’s the story of a now-retired get-away driver whose is forced back into “the Life” for one last mission. It’s fast paced and action packed and left me wanting to read more about the main character. The car chase scenes are next level in this book! 5 stars! A quick read too...only around 250 pages. B
  7. I’m enjoying the banter between Tomas and his brother Jochan during these first few chapters.
