#30DaysOfThanks2015 Day 7 Author: Anne Bishop

Posted November 7, 2015 by Felicia S in Month of Thanks / 14 Comments


Hi Yโ€™all! It is November and I am bringing back #30DaysOfThanks for Year 4 aka #30DaysOfThanks2015. I had so much fun doing this last 3 years that I thought I would recycle the program again this year. Switching it up this year with 3 posts a day–1 author, 1 narrator, and 1 blogger that really touched me this year. I didn’t have room to thank everyone because really my life overfloweth with awesome bloggers, books, and listening enjoyment. I tried to fit in some new people who have come into my life/reading enjoyment the last year while still shouting out my tribe of many years. I am so glad that I didn’t have room because it means my life ROCKS!

Just going to admit this upfront: At first I was a little afraid to try THE COURTYARDS OF THE OTHERS series because I felt it would be to fantasy for me. Straight up: Fantasy intimidates me. I think the stories are fascinating, the characters amazing, but every series I have tried I thought I needed a cheat sheet to keep everything straight. I don’t have that problem at all with The Others. While it does straddle the Fantasy/UF line (and yes I love UF)–I think that line was straddled expertly. It is a bit more methodical and detailed but it does have all those kick butt UF devices as well. I just really enjoyed it. In fact, Anne can be credited for me being more open to reading more fantasy in the future. I love the trend of all the genres blending and the best just popping to the top. Really excited to try more!

  1. I LOVE this series and I know it has fantasy elements but it’s just straight up good storytelling that isn’t intimidating like most fantasy is for me.

  2. I feel terrible, I have had her on my TBR for such a long time because her series is right up my alley, I just have not made time for it yet ๐Ÿ™ maybe ill start book 1 soon, my friends love her.

  3. I’ve not tried anything but her The Others series. I really should try some others. I do like some fantasy series, but I’m picky about them. I agree, they can be a bit overwhelming sometimes.
