Day 26: Top 3 Favorites
I don’t think I could ever pick an all time favorite, or even a few favorites. These 3 just happen to be ones I’ve really enjoyed over the past couple years, and are generally one of my usual recommendations.
Day 27: Favorite Villain
Denth, hands down. He manipulates the main character into pushing for war on her homeland. He flat out tells her he can’t be trusted. He tricks her into thinking he’s her friend and working for her.
Day 28: Quote
“Love is temperamental. Tiring. It makes demands. Love uses you. Changes its mind. But hatred, now. That’s something you can use. Sculpt. Wield. It’s hard or soft, however you need it. Love humiliates you, but hatred cradles you.”
Day 29: Chapter
Current chapter I was reading in a book I picked up from the library, A Natural History of Dragons.
Day 30: Read This Month
And here are all the books I have read this month, in order of easiest to stack first, The Price of Spring, The Name of the Wind, An Autumn War, A Natural history of Dragons, & The Wise Man’s Fear.
Day 21: People on the Cover
Kylar Stern, a.k.a. Azoth. The depiction of the assassin on the cover is one of the main reasons I started this series.
Day 22: I Need to Buy This
Lots of people seem to like this, and from what I’ve heard of the story, it sounds really interesting. It’s definitely high up on the list of books I need to buy.
Day 23: TBR Pile
That’s right, there is no pile. I generally read books as soon as I get them, I rarely give them the chance to stack up.
Day 24: Bookmark
What could make a better bookmark than a library card, right?
I unfortunately lost my favorite (and real) bookmark a long while ago. It was these colored ribbons tied together, and one end had beads on them while the other featured a small metal figurine of a mouse sitting inside an open book.
Day 25: This Gives Me Feels
Santhid, from Words of Radiance. Reading the description of this creature, and then being able to see a picture of how the author actually envisioned it, left me breathless. The entire series is filled with detailed drawings like this of it’s world’s inhabitants. I wish my writers would attempt this sort of thing.
Day 16: OTP
I had to look this one up, I’m getting rusty on my internet lingo. I wasn’t sure who to pick really, I’ve never been really moved by character’s romantic relationships with each other. I settled on Vin and Kaladin. They are both serious, no nonsense types. They also tend to not be trusting of others.
Day 17: Spine of Book
I could think of nothing better for this one, than one of Sanderson’s monsters. I mean, who else can put their titles sideways on the spine, instead of up and down?
Day 18: Recommended to Me
I can still remember the day I saw my 5th Grade Science teacher reading this. I asked him about it and he said when he was done with it, he would let me know. He encouraged me to check it out from the school’s library, and it’s still one of my favorites.
Day 19: Book to Movie/TV
I really enjoyed the movie adaptation of this, more so than the book itself. I felt that it was pretty spot on, and held more of an emotional impact than it’s paper counterpart.
Day 20: This Should Be a Movie
I could totally see this being a really good movie, if done well. It would probably still be kind of cool even if it was done badly too.
Day 11: Can I live here?
The Uglies Series, specifically, Extras. I would like to live here mostly for the surges, or surgery. You can look just about anyway you want, and it’s cheap/easily accesible. Credits, or income, is based on popularity, but just about everything you could want is already provided for you. They also have some really cool technology, like hoverboards. It’s the 21st Century, why don’t we have hover stuff yet??
Day 12: I’m Reading This Next
The Name of the Wind. This will be my second read through of these books. I love the tale of Kvothe, despite the many criticisms people seem to have with the books and author. I am beyond excited to see how the final book turns out.
Day 13: I Can’t Wait for This
Newest book in the Mistborn series, the series that made me fall into heterosexual love with Mr. Sanderson. And then ANOTHER one early next year? Yes please.
Day 14: Didn’t Finish
The Goblin Emperor. (Yes, that is the actual copy of the book I owned) Didn’t even start it. Not that I didn’t want to… I would of loved to read this, I heard lots of good things about it.
Day 15: Hero/Heroine
Kvothe. Can’t help it. He’s just a bad ass.
