Hello, everyone! As I’ve said in the last few posts, my job had been crazy dealing with the election (I worked from 5 am to 1 am Tuesday, then back to work again at 6), so I missed WWW Wednesday. But I’ve still been reading a ton so I didn’t think it was a good idea to just combine weeks, so here’s what I’ve read so far in November.

Happy October, bookworms! Before the new month gets underway, let’s take a look back at September. I love looking at my stats, especially if they reveal something I wasn’t expecting. This month seems pretty standard to me, but it’ll give you, lovely readers, a glimpse into my reading life for the month of September.

This review is going to get.. Complicated.
TLDR: This is a fun, fast-paced speculative fiction novel that expertly explores modern-day’s media obsession and the price of fame. Not without its faults, I’d happily recommend this book to lovers of the internet age.
Synopsis: Magic 2.0 is a comic science-fiction/fantasy series of books written by Scott Meyer. The series so far consists of five novels, the first being Off To Be the Wizard. The series follows Martin Banks, a programmer from 2012, who uses a computer file that allows him to alter reality to time travel to medieval England where he joins a community of other computer programmers posing as wizards.
My history with this series goes back to hearing Book Roast talk about reading the first book nearly a year ago. At the time I searched my libraries and none of them had a copy, so it stayed on my Goodreads To-Read shelf, perhaps to be forgotten. But I finally got my chance when I saw Scribd had the first 3 books on audio, which I read in August, and I got the latest two books on Audible, which I finished up this weekend.
As I prefaced in my quotes post, I’m writing this review in preparation of this weekend’s season premiere of HBO’s True Blood. I’ve watched the show since it started in 2008, and while I do have some problems with the direction it’s heading, I am still a huge fan.

I have some quotes for you. I know so many people, like my mother and I, are getting psyched up for the new season of HBO’s “True Blood.” In honor of next weekend’s premiere, I have quotes and will review the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, “Dead Until Dark” by Charlaine Harris.

I’d like to start out with a little back-story with this book up for my review.
I was strolling through my Books-a-Million passing the time waiting for the excruciatingly slow city bus to come. It was extremely masochistic of me, surrounding myself with books; it was nearing the end of the month, so I barely had money left in my budget. Bibliophiles and stretched college funds just don’t mix, people! Continue reading “Review of “Room” by Emma Donoghue”
