#TheReadingQuest Update

Even though I don’t feel like I’m excited as I was hoping to be, I think I’ve started off okay. Of course, I could do better, but I’ve been feeling a bit funny lately, all I want to do is sleep.

So, even though I think this readathon is amazing and great, I don't want to push myself to read when I'm not in the mood.
I don't know if I don't want to read at all, or read a certain book.

I might do this readathon at another time, because it is pretty cool.

Book Review ~ Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce




 goodreads







The first time I read this book was when I was in high school (17 odd years ago). I remember taking it out of the library over and over again to read it. I was just in love. Of course, I also took out the other three books in the series. Now, this was before I knew the internet could tell me there was a series before this one, but oh well. I still haven’t read them…

Anyway, I have read it countless times after that, and even though book one isn’t my favourite from the quartet, I still love it.

We are introduced to Daine (which I pronounced Diane, not sure how you are supposed to pronounce it anyway). A young girl on the move after her family village was destroyed.

With most, if not every, fantasy novel; don’t judge it by the first book. It’s usually ground work for the adventures to come. With Daine’s magical powers with animals starts to grow, you see her personality grow as well.

I really need to get more of Tamora Pierce’s books, instead of reading this series over and over again. Also, need a new edition, because I have abused these books.

Game of Thrones S7 E5 Review







Season 7 Episode 3






A LOT HAPPENED, BUT NOTHING AT ALL…?

I didn’t mind this episode, it wasn’t as great as episode 4 by any mean, it was more like episode 1; a lot of information giving.

This is going to be a bit different from my previous reviews, as I do scene by scene of the complete episode. I won’t be doing it this time, but just talking about things I can remember. I’m in a lazy mood at the moment, sorry about that.

Before I start, where was Theon in this episode? Was he hiding from Jon Snow? I just needed more of them together, even if it’s hard words.

Jamie survives????? I don’t know how I truly feel about that, I want him dead because, c’mon, he was drowning…. But then again, who is going to kill Cersei?



Is Daenerys becoming her father? I know there are people who hate her, or starting to, or does this make me her dad as well? But in a way, I kind of think she should have done what she did. Do you think Cersei wouldn’t do the same in her situation? Look how quickly they bent the knee once she burnt the Tarly’s…and that family isn’t dead, there is still Sam remember.




When Drogon went up to Jon Snow, and let him touch him!!!!!!!! He is a Targaryen!!!!!



We also find out, which isn’t a surprise just a confirmation, that Jon Snow is not a bastard. If Sam Tarly would shut up and listen to Gilly, he would be able to tell Jon when (if) he sees him next.



So, Cersei is pregnant… At first, I oddly enough felt something for her and Jaime, until she tells him, “Don’t betray me again”.
Kill her Jaime, do it now!!



Is it me, or does anyone else think we (Daenerys) shouldn’t trust him 100%. They do say blood is thicker than water, and he might have “bent the knee” for her, but when it comes to it, can he kill Jaime if it meant serving his Queen?



I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it until he is finally killed off, I do not trust Baelish Creepy-Pants. Arya needs to kill him with that dagger.
I think he knew Arya is watching him, do you think he asked for that letter knowing she will find it. He wants Arya and Sansa to be at odds, he is good at making sisters despise each other……



Finally, we know where Gendry sailed off to….
And even though he is off with Jon Snow on a suicide mission (if you ask me), I wonder what his role is in this game. A bastard son of a king, he has adopted the hammer that his father did. There is always a reason for things in this show.



The ending was annoying, now I need to wait until next week to find out what happened to the suicide squad.
Go home Jon Snow, shit is brewing.




Hurry up week.




Overall, I rate this episode:

Book Review ~ All That She Can See by Carrie Hope Fletcher




 goodreads






Carrie Hope Fletcher is a good writer, but I found this story to be boring. We will be in the present, then she will start talking about the past unnecessarily.
I just wanted things to start happening, and when I think it is, or something interesting is about to happen, we are back to boring.

It was a great concept, feelings as these monsters, other than that little bit of supernatural, it was a story about everyday life…

It could just be that I wasn’t in the mood for this type of book, so I might not like it now, doesn’t mean I won’t try it again at a later date.
It definitely made me hungry for cake, that’s for sure.
