Books in March

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
I read the Wheel of Time when I was a teenager, and when Robert Jordan died I was a bit depressed for a while. Then I found out that Brandon Sanderson was going to finish it and I got all excited. And then I thought that when Wheel of Time was finally done I could maybe try to read some Sanderson too. I’ve had Elantris for ages, so I think the time is here. It’s about magic and fun and all that kind of stuff. I’m excited.

The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett.
I’ve wanted to read Discworld for a long time. And then I was in a bookstore, and because there is something wrong with me I bought it. So I want to read that. It’ll be fun. I’ve started reading it, and so far I am having fun. It’s about a slightly inept magician who has to protect and idiot, who happens to be rich and a tourist.

Slated by Teri Terry
Slated was a book I heard about through YouTube’s Bookrat Misty. It’s about a book called Kyla. She is accused of being a terrorist and wakes up in a hospital with all memories, and personality wiped out. She is taken out of the hospital by her new ‘parents’. It sounds really awesome, and I like the concept. I think it is going to be fun. Happy about this month’s books.

Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone by J. K. Rowling
So, I live in Amsterdam, and I tried learning Dutch. And I thought it would help to read a Dutch book. I thought it might be a good idea to read a book I’ve read fourteen thousand time so I vaguely know what’s happening, thus I shall be reading Harry Potter en de Steen der Wijzen, or Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone.

Diary of a young girl by Anne Frank
As mentioned I is living in ze Netherlands. I thought it might be a good idea to read an important Dutch book (although in English). And Anne Frank is an important part of Dutch history and literary history. So, there we go, Anne Frank. It’ll be sad and exciting and interesting. So I am looking forward to that, although, there is some trepidation.

Also, I just found Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, the sequel to Cinder, and it will be very hard to stay away from it.
