On My Shelf
On My Shelf is an original feature inspired by the On My Shelf tag. Each time I will take 5 random books from my shelves and tell you about them (how I got them, what I think of them etc.), and if they are in Dutch I will write a small synopsis of them.
I will roll some dice to find out which books it will be.
Raveleijn (Raveleijn #1) by Paul van Loon
Thomas, Joost, their brother Maurits and twinsisters Emma and Lisa are seemingly ordinary children… Until Joost guides them through the magical portal to Raveleijn. Where they become knights on horses – for a good reason!
Acording to old predictions they are going to save the village and it’s residents from the Duke Olaf Grafhart. The five brothers and sisters need each other, their horses, their special weapons and their courage to fight the creatures they meet on their way. But how are they going to get to their magical powers they need to vanguise Olaf Grafhart? And the even worse creature waiting on them?
I really like things written by Paul van Loon. This book came out a few years ago, the story was also meant for the theater production of the local entertainment park here in The Netherlands. This year a second book came out, I am still hoping to get this one.
The Safe House by Nicci French
This was the first thriller I ever read and still love it. I love the tension and the mystery surrounding the main characters protogé. I read it from time to time and bought it because the library’s copy is always lent out.
The Eyes of the King (The Last Descendants #1)(Dutch edition) by Catherine Banner
I fell in love the Dutch cover of this book and only got it because of that reason. I like the story though, but it is not that memorable.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Harry Potter #1) by J.K. Rowling
This is the Hardcover Fullcolor Illustrated edition. I loved the story and my need for needing anything Harry Potter. I flip through it every so often and like what I see, but I know the story back to front.
De Eerste God (Rune #1) by Adrian Stone
Marak Viervinger is only a memory. The amazing Godkeizer of Kadish reigns with a cruel hand and uses the immense power of the Eight Rune.
While he works on his evil plans, a dark and deadly mist comes from the treetemple on the Carolian island – a mist threatening life on both continents. Meanwhile the Runepriest Ghelan struggles with his newfound powers and sees himself set before an impossible decision. Serina, priestess, gets tied up on an struggle between two higher powers. A struggle even known to the gods.
Adrian Stone is an author I used to meet every half a year for a few years in a row. He is nice and his writing is great. I have say I haven’t read this one, because I just have way too many books.
