Book Review: The Hobbit

Image
I am so behind on my Book reviews, you would not believe it. I think i currently have 6 started reviews that i have not finished or posted or both. 

So i am working on catching up. It will take a while. 

But oh well? Right? Right. 

Someday i will stop pushing back posts and not posting for what ever reason, and actually follow the plan i make and not have a huge amount of posts saved and post them instead. Wouldn't that be something?

Anyway.... 

I have read The Hobbit. And i want to talk about it because i have some things to day about this book. If you are interested -which i hope you are because i also want to hear what you thought about this book. Or if you plan to read it- read on. And see what i thought. And then let me know what you thought.

Summary
Aylin's body was found in her garden, her hair immaculately styled as usual. Her death came as a shock - after all, who would have wanted someone so admired and talented dead? Who -among the many she'd helped, the few she'd hurt and all those she'd left behind -might have been driven to murder? In the course of Aylin's life, she had been many things: a skinny little girl, a young woman blossoming into a beauty, a princess married to a controlling Libyan prince, a broke medical student determined to succeed. She'd been a seductress, a teacher, a …

Top 10 Tuesday: My Fall TBR

Image
Another Tuesday, another Top 10 Tuesday post, featuring the meme created by the girls over at brokeandbookish.com



I did kind of cheat a little bit this week, because i included 4 series with more then one book, so technically this is not a 10 book list. But really who cares, right? It is a list of the books i want to read this fall, so this is it :)


Oh and i purposefully did not include New Releases, because i want to read the books I have. 


1. Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson 
This book was on my Summer TBR. And since it is on this one, i think we all know what happened to that plan. So next try. 



2. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon 

I recently got this book and i want to read it. I also really excited to read a book about Clairvoyants. 
And why not start a new big series that i have no idea how many books this series is going to have. But the series is just starting out. And i want to read it. So i should start it. 


3. The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton

I have this book sitting on my she…

Book Review: Throne of Glass

And people talk about this book it is a little crazy to be honest. 

And After reading a Court of Thorns and Roses - review here if you want to read what i thought about that book- i kind of wanted to try another Maas book and see if she really is capable of writing a kick-ass female lead. 

So... here are my thoughts on
