The Great Hunt Read-Along, Week 6

Source
1. We got to see a lot more Ogier in this section. What did you think of them and their
village?

I love the Ogier! Granted, life among them might be a bit dull at times (one of the reasons Loial left to see the world) but I totally love them! I love that they're wise. That they're bookish. That they sing to trees. I love seeing more of their culture and would be fascinated to sit down and talk to one of them for an afternoon. :D

2. There were some suspicions about what the Aiel women were really doing. Do you think they are looking for Rand or that it was a coincidence?
Source

Both. I don't think they were looking specifically for Rand, but them being there might be a result of other things coming to head, or them looking for He Who Comes With the Dawn. So, it may be both.

3. When Rand was trying to use the Portal stone, everyone got a glimpse at possible lives. What did you think of Rand's other possibilites? What do you think were Verin and Ingtar's?

They were all very sad. Made you realize that perhaps this was the only life he was fated to live, so that he could fulfill his destiny. Interesting that you ask specifically about Verin and Ingtar. I won't say more, but their other lives would be especially interesting to hear about. I really liked this part. The fact that maybe Verin doesn't know as much about everything as she things. The way it was presented. So great!

Source
4. Liandrin has finally shown her true colors! How do you think her betrayal will turn out for her and the rest of the Aes Sedai? Do you think she'll get away with it?

For a while I think she'll get away with it. She seemed very confident and probably wouldn't have pulled a stunt like this if she didn't think she could get away with it. But Liandrin in Black Ajah, so we can hope for a scene when all Darkfriends go splat in the muck, right?

5. Poor Egwene! Do you think Nynaeve and Elayne can save her before the ship arrives?

I'm with Min on this one. If Egwene is going to be important in Rand's life, chances are she isn't leaving the continent. Or if she is, she'll be back soon. Stupid Seanchan. I mean, uh...*clears throat*...very interesting development. :D

Other Tidbits:

Loved the story about the woman Deaine who was Aes Sedai and created the a'dam. Such tragic irony! 

Also love this quote by Nynaeve: "I hope Liandrin is there. I will make her curse the day her mother laid eyes on her father."(pg.) Made me laugh. So classic! :D

We're fast closing in on what, in my humble opinion, is one of the better book endings in this series. :D 

How is everyone else liking it?

Follow Friday--Emotional Scenes

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs! 

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the po.st that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! 



Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book - and how did you react?

Source
The most emotional scene I've read recently was in the final book of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time Series, A Memory of Light. (Co-Authored by Brandon Sanderson.) As many of you know, this is one of my favorite series and one I've been reading for years, so you can imagine the ending was quite emotional for me. I'm not going to go into spoilers because I know several people who follow me are reading the series (and given that this was the last of fourteen books any spoilers wouldn't be cool anyway). Suffice it to say, big battles, awesome speeches, tons of fulfilled prophecies/foreshadows, and lots of tragic death. I sat on my bed and sobbed. Enough said.



How about you? What's the most emotional scene you'd ever read?

Thoughts for Thursday--Fairy Tales

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is quotes about Fairy Tales!


Fairy tales to me are never happy, sweet stories. They're moral stories about overcoming the dark side and the bad.--Joe Wright

If you see the magic in a fairy tale, you can face the future.--Danielle Steel

If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.--Albert Einstein

If you happen to read fairy tales, you will observe that one idea runs from one end of them to the other--the idea that peace and happiness can only exist on some condition. This idea, which is the core of ethics, is the core of the nursery-tales.--G.K. Chesterton

Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It's just a different wolf.--Alfred Hitchcock

What do you think? Which quote is your favorite? Do you have one to add?

P.S. I'm doing a guest post today over at Kinx's Book Nook about why I love to read. Hop on over and check it out! :D

Once Upon a Time Challenge

I happened upon a reading challenge I've decided to participate in. It's called Once Upon a Time and this is year VII, though it's the first time I'll be participating. Basically you just have to read as many fairy tale, fantasy, folklore, or mythology stories, including retellings. As I've been wanting up the number of fairy tale retellings I read, I thought it would be a good one to participate in.

It actually started a week ago, but it goes for three months, so I'm joining. I'm going to aim for Quest the Third, but I'm not going to be very picky either. If I don't quite make it, that's okay. Should be a fun challenge, though. More details HERE.

So, what I need them are recommendations! I do have a goodreads shelf full of retellings, but I'd appreciate hearing what everyone's favorites are!

What are your favorite fairy tale retellings?

Top Ten Books--Fantasy/Dystopian Recommendations

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Top Ten (Fantasy & Dystopian)Books I Recommend the Most

The Fascinating Journey of the Blue M&M

So on Friday night, I found myself in a tiny grade school multi-purpose room in Roy, Utah. One of my youngest brothers, Micah, was the star of his school play, a fun, colorful production they named A Seussical. The Grinch, the Cat in the Hat, the Whos, and many others all shared the stage, singing rhyming songs and reciting well-known Seuss lines. A person's a person no matter how small...I meant what I said, I said what I meant. An elephant is faithful one hundred percent...My brother played Horton, and had many solos and much stage direction. He did wonderfully! So proud of him! He's the kind of kid that quiet, but extremely talented. There's a clip below, though it's a bit hard to see.



So what's this got to do with blue candy? My dad was filming the production on his ipad, so he was in the very back by the window. I sat beside him, and a woman in the row in front of us got her kicks some candy from concessions.

The Great Hunt Read-Along Week 5


Welcome to week 4 of The Great Hunt Read Along, hosted by Anya of On Starships and Dragonwings and Nrlymrtl of Dab of Darkness.


Source
1) Ingtar is really gung ho about the Horn. Is anyone else worried about his obsession? Have you ever experienced such an obsession? 

Be afraid, be very afraid! Yes it was quite telling when he sat down, buried his face in his hands and said, "I'm lost." Sort of gave me chills. I can get emotional, especially about my emotions and my characters, but I've never obsessed so hard over something that without it I was literally lost. Kind of scary.

2) In Chapter 28, we hear about the Jenn Aiel, Rhuidean, and their prophecy of a man of their blood from beyond the Spine of the World. It appears that Rand isn't tied to just one people/culture and their prophecies, but multiple peoples. Are you enjoying guessing (or watching, if you have read before) how Rand will be ensnared by all these demands upon him? 



Totally! The first time you read it through, most of the names and societies don't mean much until we actual run into them and get to know them. Having read it before, it's fun to see them mention the Aiel this early on and know exactly who they are. It's kind of fun!

3) Through White Cloak Bornhald and Captain Domon, we get our first rumors and glimpses of the Seanchan, descendants of Artur Hawkwing's armies, from across the sea. What do make of them? How do you think the military forces we have met so far will fair? If you have read before, feel free to critique their hierarchy and style of armor.



Source
I think Jordan does a good job portraying them as the thing that doesn't fit. We're so used to Rand's world by now, and they seem so foreign in it. Their hierarchy is definitely weird. They're culture has a distinct, eastern feel. I can't imagine how stiff and formal their Court of the Nine Moons must be. I think the insect-head helmets are interesting. They must be intimidating, rather than ridiculous, or they wouldn't use them. I also think their animals are kind of creepy.

4) Just for fun, what do you think Padan Fain had on Lord Barthanes?


Off the top of my head, maybe Fain caught Barthanes hopping around in a bunny outfit. With an common woman. In the kitchens. Oh the scandal! J/K. ;D With this guy, could have been anything. Being a high lord, in direct competition with the king, he's got to be corrupt; have at least a few skeletons in his closet. Plus, he's a darkfriend. I wouldn't put it past Barthanes to lie outright about it, so he sounds more important than he is. Maybe Fain just scared the crap out of him, as he seems to do to all darkfriends, but Barthanes didn't want to say that to Rand. More Daes Dae'mar.

5) Machin Shin, the Black Wind, was waiting for them in the waygate in the grove at Barthanes. Coincidence, or set there on purpose? 



Source
Hard to say. I don't think it's a coincidence, but whether Fain put it there I don't know. Mat makes a good point about Fain's darkfriendhood. Even he doesn't know that Fain scares other darkfriends and trollocs alike just by being himself, so maybe he can scare even Machin Shin into submission. Or, maybe it responds to Rand or saidin, which is why it was there. Hard to say.

6) Ah! Poor Thom! How do you think the latest turn of loosing Dena will affect him? If you've read before, feel free to comment on how Robert Jordan's ability to write in characters and then kill them off pull on your emotions. 


Jordan does this VERY well. He doesn't even make us particularly invested in her (Dena) but we're invested in Thom and knew how he felt about her, so we feel pain on his behalf. It's masterfully done. Of course we want sweet, brave Thom to find some happiness in his old age, and Dena seemed to genuinely love him. I don't mind this as much the second time through, because I know what Jordan has in store for time (even if it takes something like ten books to happen!) but it's not any less sad for that.

Extras:

Did anyone else notice the name Tuon? I know I say this all the time, but my jaw dropped when I saw it. She's a character that doesn't really come into the story until like book seven. I couldn't believe she mentioned so early on. I had no idea! Jordan never ceases to amaze me with his masterful planning skills!

Argo Movie Review and Thoughts for Thursday--History

Source
Okay, I'll admit to not watching Argo very carefully, so this review will be short and somewhat vague. I had work to do and was multi-tasking, so I probably didn't give this Oscar-winning film the attention it deserved.

Even saying that, though, I was fairly impressed with it. It was one of those films that didn't have high action, but managed to be suspenseful anyway. It was something that, once in motion, happened too quickly for comfort. Things inevitably went wrong, and bureaucrats tried to shut down the rescue after it was far too late to turn back without loss of life. Because of that, tempers ran high and people got to shout things at their superiors that we all dream of shouting when people are thinking with their arm-hairs rather than their brains.

Balancing Action and Character--A Dystopian Dilemma

Source
This week I found an article entitled, Love and Heroics in the Time of Dystopia (Source: L.A.Times). It's really just a review of Lauren Oliver's Delirium Trilogy, but it got me thinking about the dystopian trend and it's potential drawbacks.

Teaser Tuesday--Seraphina + RMQ

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

Source
My teaser today is from Seraphina by Rachel Hartman.

"Did you bit Prince Rufus's head off, worm?" cried one of the Sons, a muscled riverman. He grabbed the newskin's twiggy arm as if he might break it.

"The treaty forbids us biting off human heads," said the newskin, his voice like a rusty hinge. "But I won't pretend I've forgotten what they taste like." (Print edition, page 20)


**By the way, Rebecca over at  Vicariously! is doing a review of Persistence of Vision and interviewing me. If you have a spare moment, hop on over and see what you think!


Random Movie Quotes (RMQ)

Source
Last week's RMQ was: "Aw, poor guy. I understand. It's not easy being banished. Take my buddy Bigfoot. When he was banished he fashioned an enormous diaper out of poison ivy. Wore it on his head like a tiara. Called himself "King Itchy"." This one was said by the Abominable Snowman, voiced by John Ratzenberger in Pixar's Monster's Inc. Alex Cavanaugh guessed this one. Great job, Alex!



Today's RMQ is:


"I missed the part where that's my problem."

One point for film, one for actor, one for character. Any guesses?

"When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry."

"A wretched soul, bruised with adversity,
We bid be quiet when we hear it cry;
But we were burdened with like weight of pain,
As much or more we should ourselves complain."

"All is well that ends well."
"Love goes toward love as schoolboys from their books,
But love from love, toward school with heavy looks."
"What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason!
how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how
express and admirable! in action how like an angel!
in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the
world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me,
what is this quintessence of dust?"

Partials Book Review + Blog Tour Stop

 Today's Blog Tour Stop is a guest post at Lehua Parker. 

Partials Book Review

goodreads.com
One of the first League of Utah Writers meetings I ever attended included a presentations by Dan Wells. At the time, he was promoting his first book, I am Not a Serial Killer. I haven't read that one, and while I wouldn't mind picking it up sometime, it's not my first choice of genre. When I heard Wells was writing a dystopian series, though, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I read the first book last week.

It was fan-freakin'-tastic!

In a world where the population has been decimated by a past war with engineered super-humans known as Partials, and the human race can no longer reproduce, Kira, a sixteen year old Medic, is trying to find a way to save the humanity. Conception is possible, but the same virus that decimated the population (known as RM) is carried by the survivors and passed on to the newborns, who die a few hours or days after birth. The last surviving child is now fourteen-years old, and the human race is heading fast toward extinction.

Kira wants to cure RM, but doesn't think her government is doing all it can, so she sets off on a dangerous journey that will not only threaten her life and those of her friends, but one that will eventually shed light on aspects of her society that will change her world and rock the foundations of her beliefs.

I recently read Divergent, which I had been looking forward to for a long time, and don't get me wrong: I loved it! (My review HERE.) But, despite the fact that there was less romance in Partials and the story was much more sprawling, I liked it WAY more! I thought the writing style was much more engaging and I identified with and rooted for the characters much more strongly.

It took me just over a week to get through it, both because it had 468 pages and because I had a busy week, but I couldn't wait to keep reading it! The writing was great, the characters were compelling, and the story was clear. If you haven't read Partials, please do! It might be the best dystopian novel I've read this year. :D

Has anyone else read Partials? What did you think of it?

Top Ten Tuesday--Spring TBR List

**Before I get to Top Ten Tuesday, I just wanted to share something. A blogger contacted me yesterday asking me for links to where readers can buy my book, Persistence of Vision. I went to the Amazon page and look what I found!!!


You may not be able to see this well, but written in green are the words, "Only 10 left in stock. More on the way." I don't know how many were originally ordered--maybe it was only a dozen. No idea--but I think it's safe to say my books are selling. Woot, WOOT! *does creepy author dance*

Quantum Entanglement Book Review + Blog Tour Stop

Today's blog tour stop is an Interview at These Flying Pages. Hop on over and check it out!


Quantum Enigma Book Review

goodreads.com
So I don't usually do reviews on Mondays, but last week I was literally reading seven books at once. Deep breaths, Everyone. It's really okay! I didn't finish them all, but I finished four of the seven, which leaves me three (plus one new one) to finish this week. Because of that, I'll have quite a few books to review over the next week or two.

Quantum Enigma by Bruce Rosenblum, unlike most that I review, is not a fiction book. It's a non-fiction book that deals with physics principles. Now, before everyone roles their eyes and click away from my page (Hey! That means you! Get back here!) please hear me out.

Q: What is a book you didn't like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn't popular?


The only answer I can think of will probably used a lot this week: Fifty Shades of Gray. It wasn't even that a lot of my friends read it, but lots of co-workers and acquaintances, and almost every one without fail said they liked it. I just don't get it!

So I went and saw this Dwayne Johnson film over the weekend. While I love the former Rock in his action films, and I especially like him in his kiddie movie (the guy's hilarious, believe it or not) for some reason, when he picks dramatic films, they tend to have great plots, but poor executions.
