(Y-12) Achievement Unlocked

Just unlocked another achievement on the Bookly app.

150 hours of reading using the app, I started using it in the middle of June of this year.

150 hours, that is 6 days 6 hours of reading.

I am off to read.


(Y-12) The Companions

I just finished reading the second book of this year of reading, The Companions by R.A. Salvatore, the first book of The Sundering, a multiple author story set in the magical land of Faerûn.

In this first novel, and to much to my delight, we see some of my favorite fantastic characters, part of the Companions of the Hall, wake up in a magical forest, and become appointed by the goddess Mielikki to come back from their rest, and walk the treacherous paths leading to the white tundra knowed as the Icewind Dale.

This with the purpose of reuniting, after a century of absence, with the legendary drow ranger, Drizzt Do’Urden.

I won’t give more away, but all I can say is that the book made me cry at the end, and Catti-brie kick even more ass.

I recommend you grab all of the Legend of Drizzt saga, one of the best fantasy series ever written.

I am off to read, and try to balance my reading schedule, because I have fallen behind.


(Y-12) Happy Anniversary to us

A day just like today, but seven years ago, I started writing on this blog.

After more than 550 posts later it’s still great fun.

Thank you to all who follow my progress thru my crazy project.

I am off to read.


(Y-12) Epic Sagas, or, how I refuse to stop reading fantasy novels

The original plan for this year was to finish the leftover books from last year TBR pile, and then focusing on some new science fiction books

Well scratch than, I am going to continue the epicness for another year.

To start off, I’ll continue with The Companions by R.A. Salvatore, and continue with the other 4 books that comprise The Sundering Saga.

Then jump back into Genabackis, yo start the fifth volume of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, Midnight Tides.

And to top off the year, I’ll go into the fantastical world of Krynn, and the Dragonlance novels.

What a fantastical year I have before me.

Off to read.


(Y-12) The Gospel of Nick Cave

The only thing that I enjoy of my commute from my house to school, and the other way around, is than in that moment I can disconnect and enjoy some amazing music.

Today was one of those days, and who came along the ride, none other than Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

I must confess that my devotion to Nick is a recent thing.

I have listen to some of his song, and I liked them.

I was listening, but not paying attention.

It was after a friend gave me some tickets to see his documentary of the recordings of Skeleton Tree, a harrowing tale of lost and redemption, in which you see Nick Cave deal with the death of his teenage son, and the grieving transforming into a painfully beautiful piece of art.

After this , I was finally paying attention, and fully diving into one of the most compelling artists I have listen to.

This reminded me to go out and do what I love, to give back to the collective energy a bit of my personal art, and be unapologetic about it.

Thank you Mr. Cave, for the music, for the compelling words, and must of all for sharing your genius.

I am off to read and scheme some new plans.


(Y-12) Dragonero Vol. 19 and the first 1,000 pages

I couldn’t make it to the Dia de los Muertos event, still a bit fuzzy from the cold I have been fighting.

The one positive thing from my days in bed is that I have reach my 1,000 pages for this, the twelve year of reading.

1,487 is my current total.

Now I’ll restart with my reading of The Companions by R.A. Salvatore, and hopefully by the end of the weekend I’ll be really close to 2,000 pages.

Off to read.


(Y-12) Frankenstein and Día de los Muertos

Just in time for Día de los muertos, I have successfully finish this year’s reading of Frankenstein.

As always I find new thing, and my perspective of this 201 years old book is always fresh and exciting, that is why I keep coming back to it.

Right now I’ll work on Dragonero Vol. 19, and later in the evening, we will go and visit the traditional altars in remembrance of those who have left us.

I promise some pictures.

Off to read.
