I’m reading fantasy again! [or sorta!]
Hello beautiful reading beasts!
Welcome to my third PPP [Pure Peer Pressure] ! I’m so excited about this new feature!
What is “Peer Pressure”?
The pressure to conform (to do what others are doing) can be powerful and hard to resist. A person might feel pressure to do something just because others are doing it (or say they are). Peer pressure can influence a person to do something that is relatively harmless — or something that has more serious consequences. [source]
Because…. What would be of this little professional DNFer #bookworm without the pressure of her peers?? 🙂
Please feel free to link any bookish post for any book(s) that you read or want to read as a result of “Pure Peer Pressure”

About the Book
Three terrible things happen in a single day.
Essun, masquerading as an ordinary schoolteacher in a quiet small town, comes home to find that her husband has brutally murdered their son and kidnapped their daughter. Mighty Sanze, the empire whose innovations have been civilization’s bedrock for a thousand years, collapses as its greatest city is destroyed by a madman’s vengeance. And worst of all, across the heartland of the world’s sole continent, a great red rift has been been torn which spews ash enough to darken the sky for years. Or centuries.
But this is the Stillness, a land long familiar with struggle, and where orogenes — those who wield the power of the earth as a weapon — are feared far more than the long cold night. Essun has remembered herself, and she will have her daughter back.
She does not care if the world falls apart around her. Essun will break it herself, if she must, to save her daughter.
I haven’t read fantasy for almost a year and I can’t remember the last time I read epic fantasy! So if this is not PPP I don’t know what it is! 🙂
4.5 Stars, most likely. Though not far from a full 5 Stars. The Fifth Season is unlike anything I’ve read in a long time. A perfect blend of science fiction and fantasy with a fascinating world.

when I finish a good book, and I mean a really, truly, unbelievably good book, I struggle with the review a lot. The insecurity of writing something sub-par kicks in, and you wouldn’t allow yourself to write a middling review for a book that was this good. Would you?
How could I NOT read it???
I hope there is no dragons in this book! I’m severely allergic to dragons! My bookshelves are a dragon-free zone! 🙂
My shelves used to be a Zombie-free zone as well, until the “bad” influence of Chuckles @ Chuckles Book Cave’s! so, who knows!! Maybe one day I’ll ready about Dragons because of PPP. I wonder who would be the blogger to influence me! 🙂
Don’t miss the next PPP post, featuring the “influence” of Barbara @ Booker T’s Farm
