However I thought I'd update you on some of the books I have recently read and enjoyed since the last time I did a book recommendation post.
The first book is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I watched the first episode of the new tv series outlander and fell in love with the concept, characters and the world straight away. So I then decided to get the first book in the series and read it. I haven't read the rest of the series though as for one, I don't have the books and I think I'll enjoy it more if I separate the books to the tv series. This means before each series starts on tv, i'll read the book for that series. However I'm not much of a patient person so I may just marathon them, but I've also liked reading Outlander and for the last 3 weeks seeing the chapters unfold in a visual way. If I read the whole series, i will probably forget a lot of details from the books as the books are so large and they are making the tv series the equivalent to each book, one series. So I would then end up rereading the books over and over again and I will end up sick of the story and not keep watching the tv series that I completely adore! I also like that I caught this tv show from the start so I can do this which I couldn't with Game of Thrones. For Game of thrones, I'm not going to read the books till the entire tv show is finished as I love the show so much and I know for a fact books are always better that the show.
What I also love about Outlander (tv show) is the COSTUMES!!! My heart stopped when Claire changes into the historically accurate garments. Must be the costumier inside me!

However, if I picture Garrick as an Ian Somerhalder lookalike, then yes! Definitely!
And finally......the book everyone is raving about. The long anticipated end of THE series ...'Opposition' by Jennifer Armentrout. Since reading Origin, the way they finished the book, I was seriously worried about what the last book in the series was going to be like. It could have gone disastrous, or could be spun into something incredible.
Thankfully Armentrout isn't a stranger to writing incredible books so I knew that I'd enjoy it, but she did set herself up to a difficult start of 'Opposition' by outing the Luxen. However, she did a brilliant job of finishing the series. The book was as emotionally draining as always, making us laugh from one page, to wanting to punch a certain character who is all zombified (you know who), to swooning at Daemon's arrogant jokes, to tearing up.
I can't find any bad things to mention about the book, apart from some of the parts being quite predictable, however they didn't spoil the rest of the book as its hilarity counteracts the predictability. I also loved seeing Serena and Hunter in the book, though I wish Serena and Katy interacted more as they have so much in common. Both fell in love with an alien , was hunted by the other alien species, human but in the know about aliens.
The number of banter and jokes that could have occurred between them...
Thank You and Keep Reading!!!
