Reading(s)

Currently reading:

  • The Lord of the Rings (Almost done with the Fellowship of the Ring)
  • The Awakening by Kate Chopin
  • Wold Girl and Black Prince Vol. 5
  • Folk & Fairy Tales

I'm really liking TLOTR, but I wish I could take my time reading it because there is so much info. Right now, I have to rush a little bit because I have an essay and an exam on the first book soon. It's so annoying!!!

One thing that bothers me is that every time I read, I always think about the movie and what's even more annoying is when some of the characters I like in the book are not in the movies (e.g. Tom Bombadil and Glorfindel) Another thing that bothers me is that Frodo is old in the book and in the movies, he is young (It's not really a major spoiler, but if it is for you, I let you to get mad at me rn). Overall, it's really interesting.

My prof said that The Awakening is a "page turner". I don't completely disagree because the chapters in this book are relatively short which is GOOD, but it's not a page turner for me. After I read a chapter, I'm not curious to find out what's going to happen next because I find it kind of predictable. Based on the introduction talking about Kate Chopin's life and how the main character in the book is, I kind of knew what's to come. Nevertheless, I don't hate this book at all.

Wolf Girl and Black Prince, I just don't have much time for it which sucks because I really want to finish this series. I already finished watching the entire anime, but I want to read all volumes too. Hopefully SOOON!

I'm currently on the Sleeping Beauty part of this fairy tale book and I'm loving it. Sleeping Beauty is not my favourite princess, but after reading all these different versions, I had this great idea earlier today that I want to write my own version. I think I'm going to write that during Nanowrimo. Yeah? Yes.
