Auditing Exam? Who has time to study when there are so many OTHER, MORE INTERESTING books to read?
The Eye of the World, Robert Jordan- My roommate has threatened to bitch slap me if I don’t stop my bad ways- ways like asking for spoilers, skimming and skipping around the book. No, I don’t have any ADD tendencies at all. Stop looking at me like that. Anyway, I’ve had the Wheel of Time series recommended to me before, but I didn’t bite; not until my roommate told me about the Aes Sedai and their Warders. On the whole I like it. I can’t help noticing a lot of similarities with Lord of the Rings, such as Emond’s Field/The Shire, Halfmen/Nazgul, Trollocs/Orcs, Mat, Egwene, & Perrin/Pippin, Merry & Sam, and Lan/Aragorn. Oh how my fingers itch to strangle Mat.
The Bell At Sealey Head, Patricia McKillip- I’ve really grown to like McKillip’s clear, lyrical, dream-like writing style. The story revolves around 4 characters’ experiences surrounding the mystery of a bell that has rung at sunset without fail for a thousand years that nobody has ever seen. Part mystery, part fantasy, part romance. I thought most of the characters were likable. Nemos Moore reminded me of Hastings from Susan Cooper’s The Dark Is Rising.
Pandemonium, Daryl Greggory- I don’t think this was the right book for me. I liked the writing . Demons/pop culture heroes aren’t really my thing however.
I can’t be the only person who loves to re-read books right? I just can’t get enough of James in Ballad. I think I have a crush on him.
