A list of what the college year books don’t tell you.

Quarters are like gold. Be creative in the dining hall. Flipflops become as important as soap, shampoo, etc. You will never find so many excuses for a bucket. Asleep by 2:30 am is an early night. New additions to the food groups: Mountain Dew, Doritos, Ben & Jerry’s, Ho-Hos and Oreos Make sure your alarmContinue reading “A list of what the college year books don’t tell you.”

Ready Player One! Ernest Cline

I had the great luck of listening to Wil Wheaton’s voice for two weeks while going to work and coming home. I got into the book so much that I was nearly shaking with anticipation before I got into the car and I ended up taking longer routes home so that the story would not end.Continue reading “Ready Player One! Ernest Cline”

Evernight (Book 1) Claudia Grey

If you are looking for a vampire romance in the same class as Twilight or Vampire Diaries, you have come to the wrong place. Claudia Grey’s book is a lukewarm romance with a predictable twist and a lot of padding. The first half of the novels centers about a young girl entering an elite academyContinue reading “Evernight (Book 1) Claudia Grey”

The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss Book Review

I have waited a bit before writing my review for The Name of The Wind because it’s almost like writing about your best friend who went abroad for a whole year. The book is the first in the Kingkiller chronicle, followed by The Wise Man’s Fear: Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 2 and the short story about Auri (whichContinue reading “The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss Book Review”

The Wise Man’s Fear: Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 2

The Wise Man’s Fear: Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 2 I bought Wise Man’s Fear about a year ago and it has been sitting on my bookshelf taunting me by its sheer size. The Stand looked small by comparison. I leafed it. 980 odd pages. The Stand was bigger. I read The Stand, I would read thisContinue reading “The Wise Man’s Fear: Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 2”

I got half the answers wrong * Joke

A first-grade teacher, Ms Brooks, was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked, ‘Harry, what’s your problem?’ Harry answered, ‘I’m too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I’m smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!’ Ms. Brooks hadContinue reading “I got half the answers wrong * Joke”

Kazuo Ishiguro – Never let me go

I first heard of this story when going through Margaret Atwood’s collection of Sci-Fi and Fantasy material called “In other worlds”. She was talking about this novel and the introduction of cloning and the life of clones bred purely for organ harvesting and I must say I got interested. Having read The Remains of theContinue reading “Kazuo Ishiguro – Never let me go”
