The Book of Lost Fragrances, M. J. Rose

A sweeping and suspenseful tale of secrets, intrigue, and lovers separated by time, all connected through the mystical qualities of a perfume created in the days of Cleopatra—and lost for 2,000 years.

I’ve only just started this book but already I’m impressed by the detail of the descriptions. I feel this is going to be a sensory experience!

 Gate to Kandrith, Nicole Luiken

Gate to Kandrith, Nicole Luiken

Sarathena Remillus, daughter of the newly elected Primus of the Republic of Temboria, has been given a mission: discover the secret of slave magic. Anxious to escape the corruption and treachery of the capital, Sara welcomes the chance to finally prove herself far away in Kandrith, the tiny nation of former slaves.

It only took me three days to get through this book, because I could barely put it down! Very gripping and with some rather saucy scenes – watch out for my review, coming very soon.

To The Dark Tower, Victor Kelleher

Awake and asleep, Tom has increasingly different lives. Awake he is a climber, scaling the cliffs by Tower Rock, and asleep, he finds himself in a vivid dream-world where he is the carrier, responsible for a strange and beautiful child, and forever in search of the elusive Sleeper.

I have a paper copy of this book so I’m planning to re-read it this week. I remember loving this book when I read it before – lets see how my perceptions change reading it as an adult.

Vitality, Tim Andrewartha

Set in an alternative version of the present day, Stylo Green moves to a nameless city to work for Vitality. The company is making a purple soft drink which they promise will change people’s lives – a welcome gesture in a place where society is spiralling down towards its demise (From Amazon blurb).

I’ve only just started on Vitality by Tim Andrewartha for my stop on the Double the SciFi tour. Stay tuned!

WiSpY, Rob Andrews

Adam is an up-and-coming blogger. One day he starts receiving email from the mysterious “WiSpY”, telling him to post a prediction on his blog – which then comes true. Things only get more weird from there.

I just finished this today and I’ve got to say, W is for Wow! I’ll be posting a review and a giveaway later this month as part of the Double the SciFi tour, so watch out for that.


The Forever Girl, Rebecca Hamilton

Sophia lives in a small town where her Wiccan practices are disapproved of by the local church. Research into her family’s history leads her towards finding out about the voices in her mind, but also leads her into a dark world where the vampiric Cruor rule. Can she trust the mysterious Charles after her friends turn away from her?

I loved this book – read my review here.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Day of First Sun, Sheryl Steines

I’ll be writing about this book in a book tour later in March, so I won’t say much about it yet…

What do you think you’ll read next?

I received an ARC of Gate to Kandrith, by Nicole Luiken. I’ve been reading a lot of paranormal YA recently and this book looks set to take me back to high fantasy.

Social Networking

In other news, I’ve been doing a bit of mucking about behind the scenes, doing what I like to call “Blogscaping”.

I’ve added a bunch of links to the sidebar to ways that you can follow The Oaken Bookcase, including RSS, Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, Google plus, Amazon, Pinterest, Linky, email subscription… How we keep up with all these types of social togtherness these days, I have no idea.

Please, I would love it if you would follow The Oaken Bookcase in any capacity you choose – one, two or all!
