Crazy Cunning Coloring Cult

Excellent colouring book. Good quality paper, great motifs. Animals, landscapes, variety. Fun. I have done four pieces so far and really enjoyed doing them. I will definitely continue using this book. I would recommend or gift it to friends.

December 10, 2017: Pick For Me Challenge

This is how it works: post a list of your coloring books. Another member will choose one of them and then give a page number for you to color. Tada!

Here is what I ended up with, picked by Gundega:

I am thinking about combining it with two other currently running challenges:
Mixed media–I plan on using watercolor for the large areas and backgrounds and do the details with gel pens and pencils.
Winter color theme–I am going for pale blue, green, grey and maybe mix in some pale purples. I saw a winter scheme like that somewhere and think it could work well with this motif.

Then again, it might end up being totally different, as I am very much a spur-of-the-moment coloring person… 🙂

Time-travelling backstory

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My third go at The Chronicles of St. Mary’s. I read the first book and listened to another short story. So far solid three-star experiences. Ok, but ultimately not for me. I am not a huge fan of time-travelling stories or the particular brand of humour that I have found in these books.

Recommended for fans of the series, for new readers I think it would maybe make more sense to go straight for the first book. This did not feel like a prequel, it is more of an addition to give some backstory.

Swords, sorcery and treasure

The Jewel of Dantenos: A Lee Starfinder Adventure from the World of The Godling Chronicles (The Godling Chronicles, #0.5)The Jewel of Dantenos: A Lee Starfinder Adventure from the World of The Godling Chronicles by Brian D. Anderson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Short story, set in front of a so far six-book-long fantasy series. Sword and sorcery/heroic fantasy. Nothing serious or deep, just some fluff with adventuring heroes trying to retrieve some treasure. Add some swords, horses, demigods and a little magic, stir and voila.

I throughly disliked the main character and really only made it through the whole 1 hour and 52 minutes, because I was stuck on a plane without anything better to do and the audio came for free through audible.

It was ok, barely. I have no interest in picking up the series.
