Last Week on Inked Brownies

Upcoming reviews this fall!

inkedbrownies

Fall is my favourite time of the year. Mostly because I absolutely adore the weather in the fall, but also because of the beautiful colour palette you can find outside. Then there’s harvest festivities, freshly made pumpkin soup, Thanksgiving and my favourite celebration of the year: Halloween. Fall also brings the most wonderful weather to read in: stormy weather! Or the second most wonderful weather to read in: outside in the park on a bench, surrounded by trees with orange, red and golden leaves. Still warm enough to sit still outside and not catch a cold (unless you have the same healthy immune system as me and get strep throats in the middle of the summer as well), but also cold enough to not sweat like a pig when wearing a snug vest and a thin scarf.

This fall will be even more exciting for me, since I’m also getting married in October. The next 5-6 weeks will be pretty intense with all the preparations (and I’m not even a Bridezilla, far from it actually), so I don’t know how much time and energy I’ll have left for reading and writing in between.

Nevertheless, I made a selection of books that I will most certainly read before the 21st of December:

cursedtowers outlander dragons hiccup wiseman nimona seraphina

I can’t wait to get started! Have you read any of these books? I’d love to read comments and/or links to your own reviews of them!

P.s.- Drooling over Looking at the brownie in the picture above, I came up with a (hopefully) fun addition to my reviews. I still have to figure out what’s practical and what isn’t, but stay tuned! 🙂

    Hmmm not a Bridezilla, OR is that exactly what a Bridezilla would say!?!

  2. Ah, so exciting- you’re getting married! Well I wish your planning goes easy and without any hitches 🙂 It’s exciting… I got married in January this year and we had the smallest wedding in Ireland… 🙂 So, even if you do turn into a bridezilla, I can tell you nothing or no one will matter the moment you’re standing in front of the solemnizer exchanging vows! It’s a fabulous feeling! 🙂

    Oh, ok.. books… yeah, sadly I haven’t read any of the books above but I like the covers so I will probably check them out for my TBR list 🙂 The Wise Man’s Fear especially has a magical pull at the moment 🙂

    • Wow, what a coincedence! 🙂 A belated gratz! I’ve never really thought of getting married to be honest. Especially not like those girls who already knew what kind of flowers they wanted on their wedding when they were 12. But now that I have the dress and hired a professional make-up artist, I’m like HELL YEAH!~ Define smallest wedding in Ireland! Does that still mean 400 people showed up? 😉

      BOOKS INDEED! The Wise Man’s Fear has an awesome cover for the fall :). I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but it happens to be a sequel to The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Less of a pretty cover, but a great book!

      • Oh-kay, I’m glad you mentioned that about the book being a sequel 🙂 Then again, it wouldn’t be the first time I read the 2nd book first and then realized *shit*, this isn’t where I was supposed to start! Ah, moments of daftness 🙂

        Marriage: yeah, I never thought I’d get married either. I remember having to write about my dream wedding in high school English class and I was very adamant to the teacher, that it hadn’t even crossed my mind. Since she insisted that I can come up with stuff I wrote her a rather satanic wedding-paper! muahahaa… 🙂
        In Ireland.. you know, it’s a big shebang, spend thousands (even tens of thousands) and invite 150 up to x amount of guests.
        I spent as little as I possibly could and apart from the 2 required witnesses, there was 5 people attending 😀 To be honest I would have loved to have just the witnesses, but oh well… 🙂 It was nice and intimate and really quick! *laughing*
        I wish you the best in organizing and do enjoy the living daylights out of the experience! 🙂

      • and I really have to stop using all the smileys… it’s a like an emoticon war in this comment section! o_0

  3. Hehehe :D.Sometimes, you just can’t help it. I keep getting sequels as a present from people without them being aware of it (“Here, I heard you like books!”. Then I usually just read it anyways, because, well, guilt? I suppose?

    Hahaha, she must’ve been so proud of being able to inspire you ;). Oooh, it’s the same in Holland! I started off with: “Let’s get married with just our closest relatives and take them out for dinner afterwards.” Then my boyfriend wanted to include more people, but still keep it relatively small and cheap by not chosing a big ass wedding accomodation: the local pancake house. THEN, it seemed like a cool idea to have a sort of Burgundian dinner with lots of people, because, you know, pancakes are cheap. Yeah, four months, 100 people and 2k spent on a wedding dress later… small and cheap my arse! The thing that makes it even worse is that you start to think differently as well: “Oh, since we already spent 2000 euro’s on a dress, we might as well get the quality flowers too” and so on and so on *sigh* I secretly wish I could go back to “Let’s keep it small”. And by secretly I mean write it on my blog for the whole world to see ^^.
    Nice, intimate and really quick sounds more like my ideal wedding night (hi mom!)

    You’re not the only one who uses an abundance of smileys :D. I always think I’ll come off grumpy when I don’t put a smiley behind a sentence!
