The Wise Man's Fear | Patrick Rothfuss
Pickpick

It‘s done and I‘m feeling enthusiastically empty... What a brilliant world Mr. Rothfuss has constructed. It‘s made to be reread and reread again. Everything I‘ve said previously for the Name of the Wind can be said for its successor. As much as I want the third book in the series released...I am more than willing to wait because you can only read a book for the first time once.

Second book is as good as the first! I‘m thoroughly impressed. I squeeze and bite at my hands during my readings. I gasp and happily cry out for these characters. I LOVE this series!! On page 263 out of 999.

HOLY HOLY. I‘ve never read a book so fast. 11 days with 661 pages. That‘s incredible for me!! I don‘t even know where to begin. Everything was phenomenal and there is everything for everyone. The whole magic system is so unique and easy to understand. There are real consequences where I begged Kvothe not to do/go something/somewhere. Drew me in. This is a book that should be read by everyone. I LOVE IT. Top contender of my favorite read this year!

Rothdell And yes, I‘m going to buy the second one as soon as I can!! 1mo

I pray for the day I can write as beautifully as Patrick Rothfuss.... On page 322 out of 631.

Page 222 out of 661. I find myself sharing all of Kvothe‘s emotions... Sorrow, happiness, love, ambition, and anger. I find myself stopping at a part where he is happy so I can enjoy the rest of my day!

GUYS IM IN LOVE. All I think about and want is to sit down and read this book! It seriously might be the best piece I‘ve read all year. 111 pages out of 661.

IvoryLunatic It‘s one of my all time favorite series. 1mo
Jesstifies I‘m 100 agree, it‘s my top 5, if not just TOP fav. I was so delighted by it, book two was still solid and I can‘t wait for three. You‘re in for such treat 🤩 1mo

Took a week off to reset my mind (what I tell myself so I can watch tv and play games), but girl, it feels good to read again!! I don‘t have much fantasy on my timeline, but this book is a gift from my old co-worker. I‘m only 34 pages in and I‘m already hooked! 630 more pages to go!

DrexEdit Beware its the first of three and the third book is not done yet. It doesn't bother me, but I know some people don't like starting a series they can't finish! 😊 1mo
LauraJ I did the same thing last week. It was lovely to read and watch tv with no guilt! 1mo
Rothdell @DrexEdit I actually prefer it this way! I like to be with the fan base and share the hype when the finale drops. When is the new one suppose to hit? “Edit: spelling/grammar” (edited) 1mo
DrexEdit @Rothdell well, I marked it “to read” on goodreads in 2014. 😜 there have been some rumors that 2020 will be the year though. Patrick Rothfuss has a huge fan-base so there‘s likely to be lots of hype! 1mo

Well... you could say I‘m disappointed. Zoophytes, cetacea, sturgeons, oxyrhynchi-blah blah blah! The story was told from the perspective of a scientist, but man, he droned on and on and on about fauna for ongoing paragraphs, which lead to pages. It felt more like homework than an engaging novel. Did I still like premise? Yes. Were the characters interesting and unique? Yes. Was the book super boring and wouldn‘t end? ABSOLUTELY.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas | Jules Verne, William Butcher

“We now come to the second part of the journey under the sea.” Adventure books are some of the most intriguing reads! I especially love ones that talk to you, almost as if they are self-aware they wrote a book about said adventures. It makes it feel so lively and real.

I forgot to post about the new book I‘m reading! Jules Verne is someone so close to my heart and simultaneously, someone I‘ve never knew. (I watched Around the World in 80 Days + Journey to the Center of the Earth without knowing it was a book by this man).

The Reckless Oath We Made | Bryn Greenwood
Mehso-so

Okay, so I‘ve finished the book and I‘ve come to the conclusion that Gentry > Everybody. He really was a delight to read about and such a beautifully written character, I couldn‘t help but love him. The plot was decent, even though it made me shrug my shoulders in frustration. I do and don‘t like flawed characters, but more importantly, I hate it when it hits so close to home. I guess that‘s a mark of good writing!

I bought this book from Goodwill, and I thought it was a filler book to the literary canon, so I put it on the back-burner but boy, am I happy I finally decided to read it! It‘s about discovery, family, understanding the little scurries inside life during the hustle-bustle. During this year, I haven‘t thought about more about a book than this. Amazing.

The Haunted Bookshop | Christopher Morley

What a beauty of a book! Romance, action, a mystery, a beloved dog, and references upon references of books one should read. The major theme of the novel is discovery and what may curiously sit on a shelf in a bookstore, where unknown words can come alive, described greatly in the above picture. Highly recommend.

I moved from Iowa City to Colorado and the last book I bought from my favorite bookstore was the owners favorite! I don‘t think I‘ll ever go again so the text is already quite nostalgic for me... and if you made it this far in my block of a post, here‘s a wonderful quote from the novel: “The world has been printing books for 450 years and yet gunpowder still has a wider circulation. Never mind! Printers ink is the great explosive: it will win.”

I‘ve read numerous King novels, and with such immense popularity, as soon as he finishes a piece, it‘s put out on the market. I say this because of the innumerable typos in the book. I mean, one of the characters “dies” in two different ways. But besides my pickiness, THIS STORY WAS INCREDIBLE. I‘m awestruck. Every single character had just depth, personality, and a relatability where you can see the people so clearly. STRONGLY RECOMMEND.

Okay. So I‘ve bought this Hemingway bundle from Barnes and Noble about four years ago and I‘ve read everything in it, except The Old Man and the Sea. I just finished it. This was the abridged version and my god. I just wanted it to end. How this won a Nobel, I have no idea. #stilllovehemingway

In a mystery novel, you need a gripping hand to carry you through until the end. M.T. Edvardsson is a brilliant guide. The narrative is broken up between the perspective of a mother, a father, and the suspect at large, the daughter. The novel offers an intriguing take on the justice system and what YOU would do if you had to defend your family.

I feel like the love I have for Twilight and the rest of the series is merely nostalgia rubbing itself on the pages when I read them. The plot‘s there, some of the characters are there, but the writing feels like a Charlotte Brontë fanfiction and a good portion of side characters fall flat. And I guess that works for some! But do I still love Twilight? Yes. Will I read the rest of the books? Yes. #stillavampirenerd

I really wish the Twilight saga movies weren‘t so Bella/Edward focused because there is sooo much dialogue between the other members of the Cullen family which makes for some lovely conservations. I, personally, love Emmett. He‘s my dude. #teamtwilight #vampiresareunderrated

Have you ever opened your book and then your head starts to sloooowly go back and then eyes become oh so heaaavy. And then. Within a second. You‘re asleep! Cause if so, you can imagine how I took a two hour nap and only read four pages. #alwaystomorrow

Again, I‘m moving soon and like the dense, idiot man I am, I packed every- single- one of my books. So, I downloaded the Libby app, got my library card, and searched for books to read. Reading Twilight now out of respect of the deep-love I found when I was younger. Let‘s hope it carries on! #twilightstan

I‘m always at a loss of words whenever I reread anything because I try to answer the age-old question of, “Did I forget or did I not understand?” This play is remarkable. I forgot so much of the dialogue that I was astounded at the end. Highly encourage anyone of any age to read this and then read it again.

Rick Riordan really captured the middle-school voice is his Olympians series and I think the best reason to read this book/series! Humor, adventure, comradery, and even an anti-racist tolerance (the whole plot of Tyson, the cyclops); this book has it all! I‘m can‘t wait to read more but alas, I have other books waiting! #17booksthisyear #percyjackson

I never read the Percy Jackson series when I was a child (23 now) and now that I‘m reading them, I think they have the strangest titles for chapters and it always tears at my curiosity to keep reading!! #PercyJackson #AMReader #FirstPost

LibrarianRyan I love this series 5mo
Rothdell It‘s super interesting! I was never taught about the Greek Gods while in school, so it always grabs my attention 5mo
