It has been exactly one month since my last post. WHAT. Hey, but I have a good excuse. Two good excuses actually. Very good ones, if I do say so myself.
Excuse #1: We’re having a baby!
Yay! Pretty excited about this 🙂
Excuse #2 (the one that actually is an excuse, not just me being excited): We moved into a house! After four years in a tiny apartment, it is so nice to have a house and a yard and a garage. Seriously, I didn’t realize what I was missing by not having a garage.
We have been super busy spending every moment not at work unpacking and painting, and we still aren’t done. But we do have internet now, finally!
Okay, so maybe we haven’t spend every moment unpacking and painting, because I have still found plenty of time to read. Obviously. 🙂
So do not fear! Reviews are coming your way! Look out for these coming this week sometime(ish):
1984 by George Orwell
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Out of Exile by Derek Siddoway
Also, I am have been having Bane Chronicle withdraws from the lack of stories in January and February. The next and final one will be released on March 18, even though on the Shadowhunter website, it likes to tease you and get your hopes up by saying it came out yesterday.
Cassie, get that shenanigans updated!
Sidenote: Also, I have been listening to Clockwork Princess on audiobook. You guys know how I love a good audiobook (my favorite way is through Audible), but I also love a good narrator. A bad narrator can ruin a good book. This is evidenced by the two previous Infernal Devices books out on audio, both of which have terrible narrators. Its not that they are bad at what they do, they are just not meant for these books. I love Ed Westwick’s accent just as much as any sane female, but it just doesn’t work for Will.
Clockwork Princess is narrated by Daniel Sharman, and he is absolutely phenomenal. He does every character’s voice differently (something that also was not done in the previous two), and he does them spot on. I mean, I didn’t even read Will’s voice in my head in a Welsh accent, and geeeeezus I don’t know what I was missing. I highly recommend it, even if you have already read the book. Especially if you have already read it actually.
Alrighty, rant over!
See you guys later this week! It feels good to be back 🙂
