BLIND

I haven't read a book in almost a year. I miss reading, but I just can't get myself in the mood to pick up reading again. It's a special kind of hell, I feel blinded, deafened and numbed. I'm not sure how long this state will last or if it won't pass at all, but when/if it does I'll try to write an update or actually something meaningful here - this is supposed to be a review blog after all. For the minor shifts you can still follow my Goodreads page. Oh, I'm not sure if Trin's ever to write reviews for this blog again, that's why the months of silence, since she was the only one who was active for the last few years.

I wish you many good reads until you hear from me again. Take care.

p.s. Kings of Morning by Kearney was a decent conclusion to the trilogy but I was far less impressed with Kearney's latest works than the majority of those who read and reviewed it. I still recommend that you read The Sea Beggars trilogy and what has been written before it first.

Christopher Priest is a beast (I'm a rhyming devil I know). It's hard for me to name an author that writes in such an imaginative and immersive fashion. The Islanders is a weird set of interconnected short stories. I missed out on a lot of it since it requires the reader to be familiar with Priest's previous works (some of them preceding The Islanders both thematically and story-wise), but there is still enough of powerful and deliciously mind-boggling moments for me to recommend reading, especially if you've read his previous works and liked them.

Totally understand where you're coming from. I haven't read a book in more than a year. I keep telling myself I'll definitely finish a book during the next holiday, but I just can't bring myself to invest in new characters and events...it is rather hellish. I miss reading!

I've been meaning to re-read the "Song of Ice and Fire" series since the latest book came out (and the dramatization), but it's a struggle. I want to read it so badly, and yet, something always holds me back...I hate growing up. =(

It’s the celebration that counts on the happiness, and the rich catalogs of this online shopping site have really made valuable contributions in this regard. Very impressive effort. From www.rightflorist.in
