Away

So sorry I have not added anything to this blog for a while, I am now a new mom and I am adjusting to life with a newborn. She is 8 weeks old now and I have not been able to do much reading.

I have listened to a few audio books and I hope to get to do a few quick write ups sometime, but with my life changing I am not sure when I will get to it.

I am trying to keep a blog of my FTM (First Time Mom) experience, so if you want to follow that you can find it here

Page (Protector of the Small Quartet 2)

Like the first book, this is a continuation of Kel’s journey to become a Knight. This book encompasses the next three years as a Page, I really liked that the author did this, as there are many things that would repeat in 4 years of training that just gets harder with each year.

I think Kel really comes into herself in the book, she is more determined to stop the drastic hazing and has help. A dog, Jump, adopts her and adds to the menagerie of birds that already hang around with her. I didn’t love what happened to Kel at the end of this book, but I understand. I am so hooked on this series, I have purchased all of them and I feel like this is a book I could recommend to a young reader, and it will probably be one I read to my kids when I have kids.

Introduction

As I read books, either for a good reads book group or on my own I am going to post my reviews here. I hope to get some dialog going as I really like debating books and talking about my favorite books with people.

I am new to blogging, but I really hope that this is something that will bring enjoyment, not only for myself but for everyone who reads this. I know we will not always have the same opinions but I hope that I can introduce people to some of my favorite books and perhaps I will gain a few new favorites as well. (I hope to get some suggestions on books to review).

So a little about me, I am 29 and grew up loving books (mostly YA fantasy, YA Fiction, Fantasy and science fiction), most of my family didn’t understand my love of books but that never stopped me. I volunteered at my public library when I was in middle school, and I have a bachelors in English (though my current job does not reflect that degree). Along with reading I love animals, crafting, poetry, photography and nature, to name a few.
