It’s time for the ‘A-Z challenge’- a post every day in April (except Sundays) working up through the alphabet. This year I will be writing about books that I read before I started this blog, that were important to me in some way. The vast majority are ones I still have on my bookshelf today, despite a move in house and sometimes many years since I first read it.
U is for Unseen
Book: Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett
What is it about:
The 37th discworld novel, Unseen Academicals follows Mustrum Ridicully, at the Unseen University for Wizards, as he sets up the University football team. In usual Terry Pratchett style, the book is full of quirky characters, tongue in cheek jokes, and imaginative takes on one of the worlds favourite past times.
When I first read this book:
Probably not long after it came out in 2009
Why it is important to me:
I had to get a Terry Pratchett book in here somehow. Odd, creative, lateral thinking- his books fit right in with our family! 😛 And I think we all read them all. I loved that every year or so, another book would come out- sometimes with old favourite characters, sometimes with new ones. But regardless, I always knew I would enjoy it.
Who should read it:
Fantasy lovers and people with a quirky sense of humour
