While I was out shopping at the mall, I stopped in Chapters to have a look around and I found two novels that were in the fantasy section that I could not live without. Let me share them with you, ’cause baby I am dying to show you what I picked up! I cannot wait to dive into their world again.
It hasn’t been too long since I finished Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind←(link to my review) I loved it so much, however, I was going to wait until the third book was published before I continued with the series, but I can’t. I had to get a copy of The Wise Man’s Fear (#2 The Kingkiller Chronicles: Day Two). I also got the audiobook from audible. I know it’s overkill but it only adds to my reading experience and The Wise Man’s Fear is a huge novel.
Sometimes, to give my eyes a break, I like to listen solely to the audiobook while I’m doing other mundane things. At other times it’s all-hands-on-deck, with my eyes in the pages and buds in my ears holding the book in hand. More often than not, I like to simply and quietly read my book comfortably sitting on my couch.
The other book I bought is the seventh installment in the Harry Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Dead Beat. The audiobook is narrated by James Marsters, who played Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Yes. I got the audiobook as well. Might as well face it I’m addicted ;p
I also finished reading a new first in a series by Genevieve Jack. You can read my review on Goodreads of The Treasure of Paragon #1: The Dragon of New Orleans. She is a great story writer and is high up on my list of favourite authors. H.P. Mallory and Genevieve Jack are both fun paranormal fantasy writers IMO. I loved The Dragon of New Orleans so much, that I had to get book #2 on my kindle as well. The Windy City Dragon #2 The Treasure of Paragon.
Ok, that about wraps it up for the new and exciting books I’ve added to my virtual and physical shelf this week. I also can’t take pictures of my book haul because I lost my camera. Bummer. So I’ve added magic links to Amazon where you can purchase these too.

Paranormal investigations are Harry Dresden’s business and Chicago is his beat, as he tries to bring law and order to a world of wizards and monsters that exists alongside everyday life. And though most inhabitants of the Windy City don’t believe in magic, the Special Investigations Department of the Chicago PD knows better.
Karrin Murphy is the head of S. I. and Harry’s good friend. So when a killer vampire threatens to destroy Murphy’s reputation unless Harry does her bidding, he has no choice. The vampire wants the Word of Kemmler (whatever that is) and all the power that comes with it. Now, Harry is in a race against time—and six merciless necromancers—to find the Word before Chicago experiences a Halloween night to wake the dead…
