Trees of Reverie October Read-A-Thon: Daily Bookish Challenges | Day Four: Tuesday, October 20

In all the excitement over the past weekend, I forgot to mention that I was participating in Trees of Reverie Readathon. It started 17 October and runs for a week. Now it is Day Four already, so I'll jump right in.

Currently reading: His Work of Art by Shannyn Schroeder
                            Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
                            A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

For the daily challenge, see my answers below!

The Selection by Kiera Cass

You might like...

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

One of my favorite parts of The Selection was the description of beauty all around America once she became part of the competition. The dresses, the dinners, etc. America is a bit of a lady figure, though, so if you were looking for something with a bit more meat to it, Throne of Glass has it. Celaena also enters a competition, though this one's for the King's Assassin. However, while she is waiting for the challenges to arise, she is dressed every bit as fine as America was. The palace is described beautifully and the library! Wow, you'd think you'd walked into the Beast's castle and right into Belle's own library.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

You might like...

The Young Elites by Marie Lu

In Shadow and Bone, you'll enter a world of magic and war. Alina learns of her great ability and meets the Darkling, a man who promises to help her learn how to wield this party. He isn't all that he seems, however, as much as I kept hoping that he was, in fact, a hero that would be worthy of Alina.

In The Young Elites, Adelina is much the same way. She learns about her power, meets people that promise to help her learn how to use it, but in a twist, she becomes the anti-heroine of the piece. This is a great book and one that seriously twists your notions of good and evil and who you should be rooting for.

If you liked...

Eragon by Christopher Paolini

You might like...

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

Dragons, obviously! That's the first of many fabulous things you might like about both books and what would draw you from one to the other. The fact that Christopher Paolini himself gave a blurb for the book speaks volumes!

In Eragon you've got one of the last dragons in existence, learning to be one with her rider and save the world from the evil king who has the other dragon.

In Seraphina, the dragons can shape shift into humans. There's political intrigue, a mysterious murder, and a secret the main character is keeping for the sake of her life.

All of these epic story-lines, in both novels, weave together and create an supreme narrative that encompasses the best of dragon inclusive fiction.
