Flourish & Blotts

So I haven’t had recipes or any such thing to really blog about lately and have been busy studying (Web Development) and reading. This will be short but sweet!

If you love to read, especially fantasy, then you will want to get a copy of Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicle. The first book, The Name Of The Wind, is an amazing journey of Kvothe, a young boy who started out in a troupe. Similarities and contrasts can be drawn throughout the book to him and Harry Potter, but the majority of the story (aka Day 1) is of Kvothe as a 15 year old at “University”. It has the elements of humor, sarcasm, rivalry much like Harry and Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, action & adventure, magic, music, and so much more! It is a 722 page book, but it is very difficult to put this one down! I started reading it about 2 weeks ago, the day before I got sick with the flu. When you are sick, you care nothing about anything except sleeping. That being said, this is a wonderful story!

I am working on HTML & CSS both online and the book HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites in the first part of the day so I can HOPEFULLY get good enough to work from home designing and developing webpages for individuals and/or companies (mom & pop mostly) and now I’m going to read The House of Hades online since a) book 3, The Mark of Athena, left you hanging and b) it’s one that is available to read at Read Any Book! I was hoping to read Sheriff David Clarke’s book, Cop Under Fire: Moving Beyond Hashtags of Race, Crime and Politics for a Better America, but since it was a Valentine’s present from my mom to my dad, I have to wait my turn!

Looking forward to reading next!

Reading now!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if you love mythology, Rick Riordan is a master storyteller and you get a really good in-depth education on Greek (and some Roman) mythology while enjoying an outstanding series of novels!
