Summary:
"A fighter dedicates to saving humankind from dragons in strictest secrecy.
That was what Garret Xavier Sebastian thought he was part of as a soldier of the Order of St. George. What he learned from a fiery dragon hatchling twisted all he believed in and set him on a collision course with certain death - but not without a chance to put things right.
Betrayed and on the run again, Ember and rogue dragon Riley discover an unthinkable truth about talon and St. George. They'll need Garret's skills and insider knowledge of the Order to negotiate an impossible deal - and if they fail, there will be no way to stop all-out war."

Top Ten Tuesday: Books that i have to have again!

Image
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Brokeandbookish.com, so clearly not my idea!

This week over at "Broke and the Bookish" with their weekly meme "Top 10 Tuesday" is a freebie. And i know many people love those, i personally do not. I am just not very creative so coming up with a topic i can actually make a list i want to share with anyone? Yeah not easy. Still. This one was actually pretty easy. But i also wasn't very creative. So yeah... 



I plan to spend a good amount of my reading time in 2016 re-reading the books i own and have already read at one point in my life. 

So why not make a post about my "Top 10 Books i want to re-read"?



Most of the books i want to re-read are books i loved when i read them before and that is why i want to re-read them. 

And because of that i want to share the love of those books with other people.

 And then there is the reason that most of those books are not newer releases but a few years old and because of that …

Classic Club Challenge / Project: Here i come!

Image
I know this Challenge has been going on for a while now, but i thought about it for quite a while. And when i mean quite a while i mean i actually thought about joining this Challenge for most of 2015. And since I have "get back to read Classics" on my Goal lists for 2016, i thought i will just do this as well. That way i have more then one motivation to read classics.  

I mean I have quite a few classics on my shelves already ready to read. No reason to wait. And a challenge is always a good way to get the motivation started, right?




If you have not yet heard of the Classics Club, here is the deal: 

If you join you pledge to read at least 50 classics in 5 years (starting on the day you join so you can join when ever, and just add 5 years to that date and that is your end date, which is fantastic if you ask me!)
There is also the great thing that this challenge doesn't say what exactly counts as a classic, you decide what you count as a classic so there really is no specifi…

Top Ten Tuesday: Recent book add ons

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Brokeandbookish.com, so clearly not my idea!



This weeks TTT is all about the recently added books on the TBR list/pile. 
(Sorry it is so late, that happens when you re-write a post that was supposed to be done!)
I will change that to make it a bit more specific. 
Because one, i add books almost daily to my TBR list mostly to remember to look them up a few times to make sure it is actually something i will want to read; two I buy a good amount of books that are reduced in price and have been on my wishlist for a while and when they have a good deal i can't not buy them for some strange reason and so i add books to my physical TBR pile because they are not necessary books i want to read RIGHT NOW but i buy them because... well cheaper then normal and all that. Third, i am a member of NetGalley, and i get a good amount of books that i want/have to read for that and i do try to get a few books each month and i do get a few each months, so th…
