Happy Thanksgiving!

To all my US people, Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm sorry I've been kind of absent lately. I had some reviews I meant to write, and then I forgot before NaNoWriMo started (whoops!).

But let's forget about that! I'll get to them once November is over and I've finished this first and terrible draft of probably the only contemporary novel I will ever write. 

And if you're not in the US, then take advantage of online sales this weekend. And eat lots of good food because this is an excuse for food and who couldn't use an excuse for food?! Right???!

In the mean time, here's a list of some bookish things I am thankful for:

Writing buddies and critique partners. I don't think I would make it through NaNo without you guys.

My book shelves. Some of them might be ready to collapse, but what would I do without them?

The candle company. It's frustrating and stressful at times, but it's also fun.

My blogger friends, like Tracy at Cornerfolds and Sam at Tsundoku. You guys are amazing.

This edition of The Name of the Wind, because it's the most beautiful book in the world and everyone should read it xD

Have a great weekend, guys!!

Review: The Name of the Wind

Title: The Name of the Wind
Author: Patrick Rothfuss
Publisher: Penguin DAW
Release Date: March 27, 2007

Told in Kvothe's own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen.

The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature.

A high-action story written with a poet's hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.

Finally Fall Book Tag

Finally Fall Book Tag

Am I finally, actually doing one of those tags I like so much? Oh my goodness, I think I am!

I saw this over on Cornerfolds, and I just had to do it. So let us begin.
