SFF Title Challenge Jan-March Roundup

I thought I’d do a little round-up of the books I’ve read for this challenge over the past three months. I’ve really enjoyed choosing books for this challenge. The next quarter’s books are planned but I’ll share those at a later date.

Addie LaRue was a fantastic read. It took a little bit to get into but once you get farther into the story, it grips you. Addie flees her home town in 18th Century France after making a deal with a devil in order to escape an arranged marriage. She travels all over the world and learns to live a life that nobody will ever remember. All traces of her are removed from the world and minds of those around her.

I’ve been wanting to read The Mortal Instruments series for a long time. The first set of books has been sitting on my shelves for around two years. I have purposefully avoided the TV series until I have read the books.

FSIS was a great read filled with lots of twists and turns. I really enjoyed reading the different POV’s. Forging Silver is the story of two Kingdoms coming together after years of war. Lord Tycho arrives in Briarlock to escape the constraints of the court but soon finds himself wrapped up in a handsome blacksmith. War is coming and they must decide which side of magic they are on.

Ghost Talker was a shorter story. It was a nice little story to break up the meatier stories. Elinor’s talent is that she can communicate with the dead. She finds herself under house arrest until she solves the murder mystery.

Iosif is stuck at the snowy eastern gate where he was posted. The road it guards is quiet with few people passing through. The highlight of his posting is Yegor – the teacher he enjoys flirting with, but maybe he is more than that? This was another short palate cleanser.

When her brother cancels the ski trip in the backcountry, Robyn decides to go alone. She might not be able to hear, but she refuses to let that deter her. Craving the heat of the sauna, Robyn finds herself suddenly in the company of two brothers – one of which turns out to be her mate.

I’ve enjoyed each of these books for different reasons. I’m enjoying working my way through this reading challenge as its given me lots of genres to read. I’m looking forward to the next set of books.
