book review: The Name of the Wind

remember when i got that most marvelous package?

let's just say,
i didn't do much sleeping for the next couple weeks.
this is why i have to limit my access to literature.
i have a priorities problem when it comes to reading.

the good news is,
the book was most excellent.

it reminded me of harry potter at times with the way it sucked me in,
but i'd say it's geared more toward an older audience.
don't worry that it cracked my heart in half a couple times.

i am seriously antsy to read the second one in the series!

if you're into fantasy lit,
or if you want to be,
which you should want to be,
then i highly recommend grabbing a copy.

yes yes.
what have you been reading lately?
do tell.

another big thank you to jael for sending me this one!

planning a trip to the bookstore,

Oh hooray! You know, after I sent that I was all, "how embarrassing would it be if she hated it? Or, worse, just thought it was okay, after I gushed about it?" So I am glad you enjoyed it. Sigh. I plan on rereading it next week.

Well, as for what I am reading now...I had to make a rule for myself to not buy any more books this month so I reverted to my husband's book I have been reading Bear Grylls autobiography. A bit off the fantasy track but good all the same. :) As for a recommendation, I can't remember if I have told you about these yet or not but The Queen's Thief series is a pretty rocking young adult fantasy series. Quick reads too. Sometimes those can be refreshing after an intense read! Glad to know of this new recommendation from you and your package-sending friend!
