Harry Potter Gear and Magical Meets!

I know there is already a topic on Harry Potter merch, but this is more on gear and carrying gear with you or wearing it out places like when you go to school or work. Some people are absolutely into the cosplay or Harry Potter everywhere thing, and I'm starting to get that way myself after experien...

Re: Inspirational Literary Characters

I finished Destined another House of Night novel by P.C and Kristen Cast recently, and there is a new character that has been introduced that I find inspiring in a way. Aurox comes into the picture as a tool of Neferet, a gift she says came from Nyx but really she received from the White Bull with a...

Re: Getting to Know You

As a follow up to my above post, I also read The Violinist's Thumb by Sam Kean. Perhaps this is an even better book to understand more about me. As the last one focused on the periodic table of elements, this one focuses on genetics and specifically our DNA. Once again, Kean goes through explaining ...

Re: Presenting Author – Mark Twain

I also recently read The Adventure's of Tom Sawyer . I grabbed the copy my library had, and it's a newer version written specifically for younger readers while still not abridging anything. In other words, the language that Maxim was discussing has been taken out. I was aware of such things before s...

Re: Inspirational Literary Characters

This may be a strange post for some as the novel Before the Storm by Christie Golden is based off of a MMORPG called World of Warcraft. However, I still consider the characters literary as they are written into 18 novels, at least 2 novellas that I know of, and of course comics. I have read many of ...

Re: Giving a book another chance

I keep coming back to the House of Night series and while I have been disappointed with the last few books I read, Dragon's Oath , a House of Night novella set between Awakened and Destined was quite good. I was intrigued to learn more about Anastasia's and Dragon's relationship and honestly with th...

Re: Playing Boardgames Online

I also play online board games from time to time. Chess is a favorite as it requires me to develop strategy which keeps my brain happy. I also play checkers and monopoly, but the latter is rare. I do like playing against bots in order to give myself time to develop strategies, but playing against re...

Re: Getting to Know You

In order to understand my love for science, one should read The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean. I am in awe with this book which is a non-fictional account of all the elements on the periodic table and their history. There are fascinating stories that are told, some I had heard and others that were ...

I was finished reading this incredible non-fiction book titled The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer. The book is an autobiography of William Kamkwamba's life in Malawi and about his idea of building a windmill. It begins discussing his childhood and the magic in their...

Re: Atypical Protagonists

I also just read Black Beauty by Anna Sewell, and I loved it. As I put on my goodreads account, "I absolutely adored this book and the way it is told by a horse rather than a human. What a new insight this brings especially to those who think of animals as less than humans. This is a very sad thing ...

I finally finished Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There and was able to see many connections that may have inspired parts of Neil Gaiman's Coraline which I read a few months ago. After reading the first and second book of Alice's adventures, there was one thing that I noticed. Alice,...

Re: Similarities Between Stories

I finished reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and realized once again how much I love this book. The way ome thinks as a child is often lost among adulthood and this book really helps me get in touch with that again. All of the puns and riddles and poems in the book are mind b...

Re: Atypical Protagonists

I finished another children's book with an animal protagonist called Call of the Wild by Jack London. This is such a beautiful book however it was very difficult for me to read because it has a lot of cruelty towards animals in it. Some parts actually reminded me of other things, and I kept thinking...
