It’s been a while… again

I think it’s time to accept the fact that I have serious commitment issues when it comes to blogging as it has been seven months since my last post hahaha. I’m not even going to promise to post regularly because let’s face it, that’s not going to happen. 😛 It’s nice to come back here every now and then though, like returning to my own little quiet corner of the internet.

Anyway, I went to the library today and borrowed the following books:

22012017 Library Haul
(My bookshelf is currently overflowing with books so I’ll have to settle for taking pictures on my bed for now. Heh.)
  1. Mind GamesTeri Terry
  2. AfterworldLynnette Lounsbury
  3. Children of Earth and SkyGuy Gavriel Kay
  4. The Dragon’s PathDaniel Abraham

I’ll be writing reviews for all these books so stay tuned in the next few weeks.

Also …. HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS! I was actually overseas for a month and barely had internet connection so I couldn’t send you my greetings. Here’s to another amazing year of books and happiness!

Library picks

I went to the library on Sunday afternoon and picked up a few books. It’s one of the best times to go because it’s just so peaceful.

My pretty, local library.

I’ve learned my lesson from previous library visits that if I get too excited, I’ll borrow too much, which reduces the likelihood of me reading them all. So here are the three I’ve chosen:

  • The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett
  • Those Above by Daniel Polanksy
  • Blood Song by Anthony Ryan

I’ve already read a few chapters of The Warded Man and am enjoying it so far. I’m trying to put off finishing Words of Radiance for as long as I can because I don’t think I can bear the pain of waiting until the third book comes out…

 

Hello, 2016!

If there’s anything I learned in 2015, it’s that I’m not very good at running a blog. I’ll make promises and schedules, but never stick to them, which resulted in almost half of year of, well, nothing. Of course, there’s the full-time job to blame (which started around August) which takes up a lot of my energy especially due to the nature of the work and the hours I do. My spare time is spent lazing around because I’m too tired to do anything, and even the thought of reading sounded like a chore.

I’m not going to make promises for this blog for this new year, but I do want to start reading again. I miss being excited over characters and stories and writing my thoughts on them. Which is why I went to the library today for my first haul of 2016.

First 2016 Library Book Haul
I may have gotten too excited…

From top to bottom:

  1. Seven Second Delay, Tom Easton
  2. Winter Be My Shield, Jo Spurrier
  3. Vision In Silver, Anne Bishop
  4. Conqueror’s Moon, Julian May
  5. Malice, John Gwynne

I think I might start with Vision in Silver because I’m 100% guaranteed to enjoy it. Hopefully it’ll reignite that desire to read so that I can move on to others.

Anyway… happy 2016, everyone, and happy reading! 🙂
