The Cephalopod Coffeehouse: November 2014

The last Friday of the month is time for The Cephalopod Coffeehouse, a chance for bloggers to get together and discuss the best books they have read in the last month.  Hosted by The Armchair Squid it is a wonderful chance to gain new entries for your to be read list and of course make new friends.

So grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair and find out what I have been reading this month that I haven't all ready bored you with.  Which is Terry Goodkind's Chainfire, the ninth book in the Sword of Truth series which I have been reading amid all my other reading. 

As I may have mention a time or two, Richard and Kahlan rank highly in my top fictional couples of all time so the fact that Chainfire starts of with Richard critically injured and Kahlan missing and wiped from the memories of all but Richard does not a happy Melissa make. 

This book also puts Richard in mortal danger from a beast that the Emperor Jagang has had his Sister's of the Dark cook up.  A relic of sorts from the great war.  Chainfire at times abounds with all sorts of action but there are a part or two that drag.  No book is perfect, it is however enjoyable.  Definitely in the top three I have read this month.

What have you been reading?  


  1. I've seen Terry Goodkind books on my husband's side of the bed, I'll recommend this to him if he hasn't read it already, thank you.

  2. Sounds like it could be an interesting read...

  3. Sounds like fun, even with favorite characters in peril.

  4. I've seen Terry Goodkind all over the place, but I've never read any of his books. This sounds interesting. I'll have to check him out.

  5. I read a biography of Theodore Roosevelt for this month's Cephalopod Coffeehouse. Now I'm reading Graham Nash's rock-n-roll memoir.


  6. I keep on meaning to look into these books because I always see people mentioning them.

    This week I finished reading the last in Terry Pratchett's Bromeliad trilogy, then read a free Kindle book called Old Christmas by Washington Irving (which talks about a traditional Christmas back in the 1800s) and now I'm on my reread of The Hobbit in preparation for the last film next month. :-)

  7. This looks like an awesome series! I haven't had a chance to check it out before, but I'll definitely have to in the future :)
