While catching up on the BookTube videos, I came across a
book tag created (I think) by Ariel Bissett, which you can check out here.
I thought, why not, let me see if I can give this a shot. So
1. What book would you make everyone read?
I would make everyone read the King Arthur trilogy by M.K.
An amazing story by an amazing author. Everyone should read
2. What would you abolish in book construction?
50 Shades of Grey….innocent trees were killed in the making
of this abomination.
3. What author would you commission to write
you any book?
At first I was going to say George R.R. Martin because he is
an amazing author, but then I realized he would kill every character. So maybe
Robin Hobb or Tamora Pierce. Both great fantasy authors and women.
Thanks to TV, reading, studying, children and everyday life; I’ve been one lazy blogger.
When I started this new blog page I wanted to post a blog every day. I was going pretty good, yes I would miss a day or two, but overall I was doing a pretty good job. Until I thought it was a great idea to do a lot of things at once.
I get this thing in my head where if I want to do something I don’t wait until I’m free, I do it straight away. I think it’s such a great idea (usually it is) and I don’t want to wait. I’m an impatient person, waiting is not my strong point.
Anyway, what I’m really trying to say is, even though I’ve been lazy with blog posting recently, it will stop. I’m going to plan more, in advance. The only way I can accomplish posting daily is by being more organised.
If the Oxygenator breaks down, I’ll suffocate. If
the Water Reclaimer breaks down, I’ll die of thirst. If the Hab breaches, I’ll
just kind of explode. If none of those things happen, I’ll eventually run out
of food and starve to death.
So yeah. I’m screwed.
I loved this book, and even though it was a bit
slow to begin with (probably due to my readers funk I’m in at the moment), but
once I was firmly in the book, I couldn’t put it down.
There were a few things I didn’t understand, I’m
not a scientist, but the good thing is that it wasn’t completely confusing. I
think Andy made it so the dumbest (me) could understand what was going on.
Mark Watney is a great character, he’s
funny, smart, and head strong, basically someone who is fit to be abandon on
Mars. If that was me, I don’t think I’ll last a day. Then again, I wouldn’t be
selected to go to Mars in the first place.
Even during the most difficult
times he still cracks witty remarks, I was laughing out loud during a few of
I cannot wait to see the movie
adaptation. I’ve heard great things; it will be amazing to see how they adapted
this. I also can’t wait to see Matt Damon portray Mark Watney.
