Empire of Storms

First of all I want to say that I am so glad I read The Assassin’s Blade last month in preparation for this release. I’ve never been one to read the novellas that are oh so trend for authors to write at the moment. The little slices of story that show a different character’s perspective or an off-shoot plotpoint not covered in the main series. Never interested. But in the case of Throne of Glass, READ THE SHORT STORIES.

Ok, now that that’s out of the way we can continue.

The Rest of Us Just Live Here

The indie kids, huh? (…) always the ones who end up being the Chosen One when the vampires come calling (…) They’re too cool to ever go to prom or listen to music other than jazz while reading poetry. They’ve always got some story going on that they’re the heroes of. The rest of us just have to live here, hovering around the edges, left out of it all, for the most part.

Super Libraire! Adventures of a bookseller

What if I told you there are people, people who look just like you and me, who have the knowledge to open our eyes to whole new worlds.

Young Adult Novels: The Good and the Bad

I’m feeling rather lost today. I guess you could say lonely, like my best friend has just up and left the country. What do I do now? Do I try to make new friends? Or just sit here in silence contemplating all the good and bad times we shared, wiping away the tears that still linger on my cheeks. It was all over too quickly, the hours burned up as I pushed on faster and faster, wrapped in a duvet that twisted annoyingly round my bunched up legs. My eyes hurting but refusing to close.

Who Needs France When You’ve Got Pirates!

Today is my last day in Morocco. It’s been fun but I’m definitely ready to head off. It all gets a bit much after a while and by the time you’re walking through the souks pretending to listen to music and scowling when someone tries to walk with you, you know the fun’s over. I even, to my shame, resorted to saying I have a boyfriend to get someone off my back, which was something I’d sworn never to do (this post sums it up better than I can). I would like to come back one day, but a bit of a break is needed.
