Five Things for Friday

Once again it is Friday–funny how that happens every week–and I am back with Five Things. Just five. Nothing unmanageable, and hopefully something that brightens your day, weekend, week. At least until next Friday. *snort*

Royal Assassin is the second book of Robin Hobb‘s I’ve read. Her writing is rich–in that it takes time to read. This isn’t a book you skim and forget. This is a book that is meant to be read. A story to be entered, to be surrounded by the words and t ...more

I don't know how I found out about this book, but I am so glad I did. What a wonderful read. I loved the fairy tale feel and the way the world and characters and story unfolded. It was a delight--and a perfect, can't put it down, weekend read.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
"An oversimplified extra-tropey YA on steroids.

Hmm, where does one begin?

Sooo, does the book that made headlines well before it was even published live up to its hype? It truly saddens me to say this but unfortunately, no. It absolutely does not and I" Read more of this review »

“...if you are writing without zest, without gusto, without love, without fun, you are only half a writer. It means you are so busy keeping one eye on the commercial market, or one ear peeled for the avant-garde coterie, that you are not being yourself. You don't even know yourself. For the first thing a writer should be is-- excited. He should be a thing of fevers and enthusiasms.”
Ray Bradbury
