    The Sword of Destiny - 7.5/10 More short stories but we get introduced one of the main characters come the main story.

    Blood of Elves - 7.5/10 We start the main big story and it serves as a set up for whatís to come.

    Time of Contempt - 8.5/10 The best one on the series so far, a lot of **** happens and things get a lot more interesting.


    They are all quick reads, all 4 books basically equal 1 game of throne books.
    The Knight of the Seven Kingdoms 9/10. Reading it a 2nd time

    The Wheel of Time - The Eye of the World: 9.5/10 some stuff seems to have been ripped straight out of the LotR, but a liked a lot of the other ideas introduced in this series. The story had me hooked from almost the very beginning.

    Fahrenheit 451 9/10

    Long overdue. Good quick read. Crazy that he wrote this in the 50s about a future world where intelligence is minimized, people have earbuds (seashells) and there are TVs on the walls. The breakdown of how that world came to be is so frighteningly accurate to these times.

    The Wheel of Time: The Dragon Reborn - 9/10 interesting that this book had very little of the main character, yet the rest of the characters are so strong and interesting that you barely notice.

    Last book I read was The Stand by Stephen King. A marathon of a read, really enjoyed it. Bounced around a lot, pretty typical Stephen King novel otherwise.

    Would recommend.


    About to restart House of Leaves- was halfway through it about 6 months ago. Interrupted by a vacation and want to restart it rather than pick up where I left off.

    Read the His Dark Materials series last year.

    I always love the books that take you into another world.

    The Wheel of Time - The Shadow Rising: 9/10 The book had a lot of one of my favorite characters in the series so I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

    The Wheel of Time - The Fires of Heaven: 9/10 Now this one had almost nothing with Perrin Aybara which is one of my favorites of the series, but the stuff with Mat was pretty cool.

    Overall no book disappoints so far, but man so many damn characters, that I find my self googling characters that cane out a few books ago and I forgot about them.

    I'm a sucker for stephen king books. It's a long one at almost 1100 pages but well worth the read.

    i've noticed this about Stephen King. He is every long winded. I read 11/22/63 and it just seemed to keep going on and on. While the book was ok, I just thought there were some things that he put in there that just seemed to draw the story on too long.

    I could see that turning someone off on an author for sure. It doesn't tend to bother me. It almost adds to the story in a way (in my opinion lol)

    To be fair...however... I'm just getting into serious reading for the first time in my life really. Don't have many authors to compare his style to. Read the Harry Potter series back in the day and not much else aside from school assignments.

    Read 15 books or so this year- hadn't read a single one in the past 10 years lol



    Starting house of leaves by mark danielewski up. Got half way through it last year and was interrupted by a vacation.


    Absolutely fascinating so far and if you read it you need to have the physical copy
