Pivot Point by Kasie West

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Science Fiction

Addison Coleman’s life is one big “What if?” As a Searcher, whenever Addie is faced with a choice, she can look into the future and see both outcomes. It’s the ultimate insurance plan against disaster. Or so she thought. When Addie’s parents ambush her with the news of their divorce, she has to pick who she wants to live with—her father, who is leaving the paranormal compound to live among the “Norms,” or her mother, who is staying in the life Addie has always known. Addie loves her life just as it is, so her answer should be easy. One Search six weeks into the future proves it’s not.

In one potential future, Addie is adjusting to life outside the Compound as the new girl in a Norm high school where she meets Trevor, a cute, sensitive artist who understands her. In the other path, Addie is being pursued by the hottest guy in school—but she never wanted to be a quarterback’s girlfriend. When Addie’s father is asked to consult on a murder in the Compound, she’s unwittingly drawn into a dangerous game that threatens everything she holds dear. With love and loss in both lives, it all comes down to which reality she’s willing to live through … and who she can’t live without.

thebooker’s July #MonthOfFantasy

Lately I’ve really been in the mood for a good fantasy book. Since I’ve got a bit more time on my hands until my next semester of uni starts, I’ve decided to dedicate an entire month to reading fantasy books.

All of the books have three things in common:

  1. They are all considered to be fantasy books, whether they’re about dragons or magic or assassins. Some are high fantasy, others not.
  2. They have all been recommended to me by at least one of my followers at some point.
  3. I’ve been wanting to read them for what feels like years.

There’s a lot of groups, challenges and read-a-thons going on lately so I’m not going to make this into a big thing. However, if anyone wanted to join me, I’ll be using the tag #MonthOfFantasy. I’ll be posting updates, photos, quotes, reviews, and more. I’m more than happy to do buddy read kind of things so let me know if you’re interested in reading any of the books with me!

Here’s what I’m hoping to read:

Realistically, I’m not going to get ALL of these books read unless I forfeit sleep but I’m going to be focusing on these books. Ideally I don’t want to be buying anymore books, but I’ll probably tie sequels and other books by the authors I read into my next few book hauls. There may be a few exceptions to the books pictured here, including review copies and new releases. I’ll definitely be reading Silver Shadows as soon as I can.

Feel free to let me know which of these books you’ve read and loved. It will encourage me to pick which books I’m going to start with! Also message me if you’re interested in doing a read-a-long kind of thing. I’m already planning on reading a book with the lovely sabookwormabroad

I’m so excited to start reading these awesome books!

The Arthurian Saga by Mary Stewart

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Fantasy, Historical Fiction

Who was Merlin? Was the famed magician of Camelot and King Arthur’s court really a sinister, all-powerful being from another world? Was he truly a Prince of Darkness? Or was he a man with the passions of other mortals? A man with unique intelligence and unusual gifts? Why was he so feared? How did he come by his occult powers? Why was the crystal cave so important to him?

Fifth century Britain is a country of chaos and division after the Roman withdrawal. Born the bastard son of a Welsh princess who will not reveal to her son his father’s true identity, Myridden Emrys — or as he would later be known, Merlin — leads a perilous childhood, haunted by portents and visions. But destiny has great plans for this no-man’s-son, taking him from prophesying before the High King Vortigern to the crowning of Uther Pendragon … and the conception of Arthur — king for once and always.
