It has been awhile since I have posted anything…like 2 years.  A lot has happened in the last two years that have taken me away from my reviews.  I have divorced and found my forever love and continued to raise a 9 year old (Piper) and created a brand new life (1 year old Zelda).  I have worked and slacked and created art.  I have purchased a new home and lost loved ones and made new friends.

It has been a very busy couple of years.  I wouldn’t trade it for mithril.

I NEVER stopped reading, no matter what has gone on in my life.  For me, to stop reading would be to stop breathing.

I have read so many things and I hope that I can get the reviews up here for you to enjoy!  It may take awhile but I’m not going anywhere… unless it’s to Middle Earth or The Scorch or traveling the galaxy with Rho.

Stay Tuned!!

This is just a random post with a video of Neil Gaiman reading Green Eggs and Ham.  He did this because Patrick Rothfuss’s (author of The Kingkiller Chronicles) charity “Worldbuilders” hit a stretch goal of $500,00 and this was Neil’s “thank you” for everyone who donated 🙂  I hope you enjoy and share with all the geeks and nerds in your life.

If you have ever wanted to see an award winning sci-fi/fantasty author read Dr. Seuss, here is your chance and it is amazing!!

I went to see Ender’s Game in the theater yesterday and I just want to say that I was disappointed.  I know it’s always a bad idea to read a book BEFORE you see a movie but I didn’t know they were making the movie when I read it.

I was disappointed in the character development in the movie.  There was no building of the important relationships from the book.  There was no detail in how Ender became “friends” with some of the important characters like “Bean”.  I enjoyed how the book had Ender learn the specific skills that secondary character had and how he could use them.  There was none of that in the movie.  The movie never had Ender really broken down by bullying, seclusion, ect. which is what built his character into who he was.

I was also disappointed that they forwent the importance of the Mind Game Ender played in the book and how that related to reality.

The movie just fell flat for me.  While they did follow the book, it just glossed over a lot.  This movie could have been epic had they split it into 2 movies and filled it with much more detail and drama.

Ahh well you can’t have everything…a great book and a great movie to go with it 🙂

FYI…I do not agree with Orson Scott Card’s personal views, just simply loved the book.

**I have been busy 🙂

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!!!
