The Chronic (what) Cles of Lumatere

Halfway on my way to the hotel when I got out of the bus and into the shopping mall, the bag was torn. It just suddenly snapped into two pieces and the other heavy half just fell off. Oops! Luckily you gave me two bags Leon... and awwhhh you're so sweet. Thanx for the good service @bookaliciousmy . I love your cute bookstore. I'll be coming back to it someday. P.S. @thesuraya and @nana_is will be proud of me for buying these books. #bookstagram #FinnikinoftheRock #FroiOftheExiles #QuintanaOfCharyn

I finished this 5 minutes ago and the only review i want to give you is: READ THIS BOOK ASAP!
I dont feel like posting here anymore but more people need to read this. And so here it is. I absolutely loved everything about this book.

I had intended on returning this copy of #QuintanaOfCharyn (after cheekily reading it πŸ˜‰) because well, look at it 😒 it's the US edition, which I didn't realise when I ordered it. Apparently the UK publishers don't currently have the rights to print a matching edition 😭 Anyway, I finished it last night and absolutely freakin' loved it. I just can't bear to part with it now πŸ˜… So I'm keeping it, I need this book in my life and on my shelf! πŸ˜πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’• #HighlyRecommendedRead #FinnikinOfTheRock #FroiOfTheExiles #TheLumatereChronicles #bookstagram

I'm a little in love with this photo and a lot in love with this series. I've recommended it before and I will recommend it forever, particularly if you are reeling from book hangovers due to Lord of Shadows, Strange the Dreamer, or even still A Court of Wings and Ruin. This series is complete and beautifully written and I can't recommend it enough. Please read this series!!! And then come cry with me. πŸ’›βœ¨

I started Finnikin of the Rock today! You guys have no idea how proud of myself I am. I've owned this trilogy for YEARS & have wanted to pick it up so many times, but just never did. I'm about half way through & I just feel so accomplished. πŸ˜…πŸ™Œ
Β·
I'm enjoying it so far, especially now that it's getting intense. I'm curious to find out what the heck is going on! Have you guys read this? What'd you think?

The fact that they don't match hurts a little, but seeing them together makes it hurt a little less. πŸ“šπŸ’™ #lumaterechronicles #finnikinoftherock #froioftheexiles #quintanaofcharyn #trilogy #melinamarchetta #bookstagram #lumatere #australianauthor

I've read quite a few fantasy stories over the years, but I always come back to this one. The very best. My top favourite. The one and only.. πŸƒ "And if the gods were to give me a choice between living a better life, having not met them, or a wretched life with the slightest chance of crossing their path, then I'd pick the wretched life over and over again.[...] I'd live it again just to have crossed all of your paths." πŸƒ
I bow to you, Melina Marchetta!

As a young adult, I remember going to the bookstore to peruse the Sci-Fi/Fantasy section for my next adventures before there was such a thing as the YA genre! The first book I actively knew was in this "new" genre was Finnikin Of The Rock by @m_marchetta1988, and to this day this series remains one of my favorites. Both for being my first "official" YA section buy (the cover and title sold me, not going to lie), and showing me the depth and excellent storytelling YA fantasy can bring.
Do you remember your gateway book/series to this wonderful world if YA?

Catching up on the few days I'm behind now!
#JulyInBooks17 Day 11: Intimidating Reads.

I don't know about you but I always get nervous when someone reads a book I've recommended πŸ™ˆ (especially if I love that particular book). So, when I saw today's #maddiewalijune prompt - a book I want everyone to read, I had to give it some serious thought!
.
I finally settled on The Lumatere Chronicles πŸ‘†πŸ» simply because I absolutely adore it. It's a relatively recent read but without a doubt one of my all time favourite trilogies. I just love everything about it. The writing, world building, plot, sub plots and characters. I had so many feels throughout and there was a real poignant moment for me too which had the tears flowing.
.
Have you read this? Do you agree with my recommendation? 😬

Best fantasy series I have read in a looooooong time. Finished Froi of the Exiles and currently reading Quintana of Charyn. If you need thoughtful, compelling fiction, check out the Lumatere Chronicles. (Another hat tip to @lallienav and @yadykates for the rec)

Day 19 of #riotgrams - opposites. Fat books and thin books both by Melina Marchetta.

Day 9 #bloomingjunechallenge2017: Longest books on your TBR
.
.
I read "Finnikin of the Rock" about two years ago now and really enjoyed it - but I still haven't started the sequel. And it's a thick book!
Other than that I think my longest TBR vook is "Lord of Shadows" - which is DESTINED TO FINALLY ARRIVE IN MY MAIL BOX ON MONDAY!!

Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta, the second book in the Lumatere Chronicles. One of my all time favourites, I highly recommend it β™₯️

My husband this morning, while I was feeding the baby: "I'll just go read another chapter". Well that, my dears, is the sound of happiness! He is spending time in Charyn (he's reading now Froi of the Exile and soon Quintana of Charyn), such a terrible place to be, right? He loves it! πŸ˜‰
My new favorite time of the day: whenever we get to talk about his reading progress. .

Sotul meu - de dimineata, cat timp eu hraneam bebelusul: "ma duc sa mai citesc repede un capitol". Asa fain ma simt sa vad cat ii place cartea (acum citeste Froi of the Exiles si ador sa povestim impreuna despre ea). #froioftheexiles book 2 in #lumaterechronicles by #melinamarchetta #favebooks #faveauthor #booksandmaps #bookstagram #bookphotography #instabook #currentlyreading #recomandcartea #cititoripasionati #cititoridinromania
