The reader might not stick with the blog, but she is always a reader. Also, there’s nothing like being stuck at home with covid to get you to take the time to think about the things you enjoy and do the things you can. So me and my day 2 covid brain are here to talk books and life.
Since I was last here I’ve (shocker!) read some books. I also finished my master’s program – whoo! I travelled all the way to the west coast for the first time and fell in love with Big Sur and the Redwoods! I also had a standoff with a tarantula in Arizona. Photo evidence:
Basically it’s been fun. Minus the covid.
The big thing driving me back here, aside from always wanting to reclaim my place to talk books is I just completed a very epic first step in ANY fantasy lovers reading journey. I finished The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. And I have opinions and also questions, though I suspect they will be answered in time. If they aren’t I’ll just have more opinions.
Right now I’m debating whether I want to jump right into The Great Hunt, book two of The Wheel of Time, or if I want to give it all a couple of days to marinate before moving on in the series. But I really do have questions I want answered. In the meantime I’m working on turning my thoughts of book one into a review whilst considering my other reading options. Ever the lover of the romance genre, I have a couple of books going that I can read tonight if I should decide to put off more Robert Jordan. I’ve also read the first few chapters of The Dragon’s Path by Daniel Abraham recently which seems to be quite promising though I only have an ecopy that I’ve been reading on my phone. I tend to struggle reading these more dense fantasy novels as ebooks so I might need to acquire a physical copy for this one.
Anywhoodle, I’m off to overthink The Wheel of Time some more. I hope you’re well and stay healthy ya’ll!
