I know I usually read a book every two days or so but I have fallen a bit behind.  I have been trying to stock up my Etsy store 🙂

I am currently reading “Fallen” by Thomas Sniegoski and I am about halfway through the first book so hopefully I will have a review for you tonight!

I didn’t want anyone to think I dropped off the face of the Earth…which I tend to do sometimes.

OOOHHHH BTW…For those of you who are interested/obsessed with “The Name of The Wind” by  Patrick Rothfuss….It was optioned as a TV Show!!!

Check it out here: http://www.tor.com/blogs/2013/07/patrick-rothfuss-name-of-the-wind-television-show

Name of the Wind (Day 1) and Wise Man’s Fear (Day 2) by Patrick Rothfuss

OMG…this man is genius!

If you love epic journey/fantasy then DO NOT pass this up.  Patrick’s way of storytelling is pure magic.

This was a fantastic read! It is one of the best fantasies I have read in a long time. Even though it is a whopping 750 pages…every word has meaning to the story. At no time did I feel like there was any “filler”. I found myself wanting and needing to know the answers to Kvothe’s questions as well. The author is absolutely amazing at storytelling. Each memory is absolutely essential in the building of this world and of building a man.

It is going to be a hard wait for the 3rd book!

I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.

You may have heard of me.”

This story is EPIC!  Need I say more?

Tolkien has a magical way of making you believe you are reading a history book, that’s a rare gift.  I had to keep reminding myself that it did not happen in reality.

My favorite character: Aragorn…he was willing to give his life for Frodo to insure Frodo’s success. “I would have gone with you to the end, to the very fires of Mordor” ~Aragorn

I have read these books at least 5 times and I can’t imagine a time where I didn’t want to be in Middle Earth.
