This is something new for my blog: a weekly recommendation of a sci-fi/fantasy novel or movie.
To kick things off, I wanted to feature the book that inspired the name of my blog: The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett.
The Colour of Magic is the first novel of the Discworld series, an incredibly entertaining and well-written spin into the fantasy Discworld, a large disc balanced on top of four elephants, balanced on top of the Great A'Tuin, an enormous turtle. The colour referenced in the title is Octarine, a colour only visible to wizards, and is described as a fluorescent greenish-yellow purple. I've yet to find a nail polish to match that colour, but Scrangie by RBL comes as close as it can get!
This is the story of Twoflower, the first tourist ever to visit Ankh-Morpork, and his subsequent adventures with the failed wizard Rincewind. Relying heavily on satire and wit, this book is a fantastic light read for anyone who enjoys a good laugh.
Don't be put off by the fact that it's classified as Fantasy - just about anyone who enjoys comedy will love this book!
This book is available on Amazon.com. Note: this is my affiliate link. If you prefer, you can go directly to the item here.
Polish pick inspired by this POTW: As close as we'll get to Octarine on this planet: Scrangie by Rescue Beauty Lounge.
