I didn’t have the best reading month in December but it wasn’t the worst either. I had reached my goodreads reading goal at the beginning of the month and I was too preoccupied by school to make sure I set aside more time for reading, so because of that this month I only read four books. Over the winter break I only finished one book and got halfway through two book so it wasn’t that bad. It’s not bad but I usually read much more but either way here are the books that I read in the month of December.
There are plenty of reasons to look forward to the next year, one of the main ones being to put the shitstorm that was 2016 behind us. Another way to look at the incoming new year is to see all the good TV show releases that we have to look forward to. Most of these shows that I am going to talk about are adaptations of books and comics so this is slightly book related. So here are just a couple of TV show returns that I’m looking forward to in 2017. Read More »
Hello everyone! If you didn’t know already, this year I decided to start writing a book. YAY! As a longtime bibliophile being an author has been my lifelong dream so I decided that I should try to take a go at it and see if I could actually write a book; or if I was any good at it. Read More »

There are very few books, that have caused to me to become obsessed with them from the first couple pages or have me so completely enraptured in the story that I literally cannot put the book down or else it will cause me pain. I am happy to say that The Name of the Wind by the brilliant Patrick Rothfuss is one such book. The story is hands down a masterpiece of writing and an amazing fantasy story. I would give it a hundred stars if I could but sadly 5 is the limit.
Told in Kvothe’s own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen.
The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature.
A high-action story written with a poet’s hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.
I saw this tag going around awhile ago and as a huge fan of Outlander I thought it would be a lot of fun to try it. I’ll try my best to stay away from answering all of these as Outlander because that would be awefully redundant. so here goes the Outlander book Tag.Read More »
The year is coming to an end and today is the winter solstice. I thought a fun way to commemorate this auspicious occasion would be to recommend some short reads since it’s the shortest day of the year.
It’s the holiday season and there’s nothing better than curling up in bed with a good book and a hot cup of cocoa. I’m currently reading The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and I am LOVING it. A review will definitely be heading your way soon. Since Christmas is just around the corner I thought it was only fitting to spread some of that holiday cheer with the ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU book tag.
