Shh... I am reading!!

Ok Ok ... I admit it


I am a binge reader.


 When I find a series I like, I read the whole thing..

quite quickly.. 

in row.. 

and when a new one comes out I often re-read the series so I am on the right wave length.

Not that bad you think...
until you realise some of the series I follow are now on the 22nd novel 

I also fortunately have the ability to read quite fast. Not sure why, it is just one of those things I can do


I have my parents to thank, who always read to us from babies and encouraged us to read what we wanted.

As it was International Day of the Book yesterday (April 23)
I thought I would share one of my recent reading efforts

I broke a record the other week... even for me

While still going to work, gaming for a least an hour or two each night and sleeping

I managed to read the latest trilogy from Juliet Marillier in under a week 
(about just under 4 days)

All three books

Shadowfell



Raven Flight

The Caller

Needless to say...awesome series.

Juliet Marillier is one of my favourite authors. The worlds she creates are so absorbing and detailed and totally addicting. 

It is definitely young adult friendly as well (not so much the smutty steamfests some of the paranormal romance I usually read are)

Juliet’s novels combine historical fiction, folkloric fantasy, romance and family drama. The stories concentrate on the journey of the characters and the human relationships

I do not want to give to much away about the books as they are so worth the read and the adventure of discovering the tale.

Here is the excerpt from Juliet Marillier's website about the first book
"its name is spoken only in whispers, if the people of Alban dare to speak it at all: Shadowfell. The training ground for rebels seeking to free their land from the rule of the tyrannical king is so shrouded in mystery that most believe it to be a myth.But for Neryn, Shadowfell’s existence is her only hope. She is alone and penniless, a fugitive concealing a treacherous magical power that will warrant her immediate enslavement should it be revealed.  She finds hope of allies in the Good Folk, fey beings whom she must pretend she cannot see and who taunt her with chatter of prophecies and tests; and in a mysterious stranger who saves her from certain death but whose motives remain unclear.Will Neryn be forced to make the dangerous journey alone? She must reach Shadowfell, not only to avenge her family and salvage her own life, but to rescue Alban itself."
If fantasy books are your thing... you should definitely try this series... I loved every second.

What is your reading record??

and now 
excuse me, it is time for me to now find another book to read....
