New Feature: Currently Reading

This is a new thing I’m trying out. Every Sunday I’m going to share what I have been reading over the previous week. This way I can share my thoughts on the books I’ve been reading even if I don’t write a full review.

New Feature: Currently Reading

The latest book in the Old Kingdom series was released two days ago. I’ve loved this series since I was a child. I still remember finishing Sabriel for the first time. Mostly because I was terrified and had nightmares for a week.

Clariel is a fantastic prequel and it ties in nicely with the rest of the series. Though I would recommend if you’re just starting out on the Old Kingdom books to read Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen first. Spoilers. Thats all I’m gonna say.

Thanks for reading.

  1. My boyfriend loves this series, and I’ve had Sabriel in my possession for a while to read. But it’s taking me a long time to get the motivation to get past the second chapter… I really want to enjoy fantasy but I often find it hard to keep myself inspired with it. I love the concept so far, I’m just finding myself prioritising different books. Which would you say is your favourite in the series?

    • I suppose the start of Sabriel is quite boring. After the first 3 or so chapters it starts getting really interesting with magic and monsters and stuff.

      I think out of all the books I like Lirael the most. Mainly because it is the story of a librarian.

  2. I saw that there was a new one in a bookshop last week and got very excited! Can’t wait to get into it – I love the others and always wanted more of that world.

  3. I had never heard of these until a few months ago when I helped a friend move and I asked about them as I was filling her bookcase. She proceeded to rant and rave about how good they are… I may just have to give them a shot now.

  4. Yay! So glad to see this! I LOVE the Abhorsen series and will be seeing Garth Nix speak at the Austin Teen Book Festival next weekend where I plan to buy Clariel. I can remember reading Sabriel for the first time, too. I thought it was fantastic, though Lirael will always be my favorite in the series.
