Its June, Ive been trying to keep busy with work and other things. Got some books Ill be adding to the list here soon and others I need to finish. Mwahahahaha books. Hopefully Ill do a review soon.
Perhaps one of my favorite things about reading is the worlds. No matter how short or how long a book is. The world is what pulls me in, if I love the setting, the background, THE HISTORY. Its easy to get addicted.
I often use the basis of those worlds I love to have my mind travel to them. Not so much Inkheart but a bit more Kingdom Hearts.
When I forum rp in such worlds I make sure my characters fit the world.(world travelers are often frowned upon in normal rps).
When I talk to authors that I enjoy I often say I love their worlds. Because that is usually what stands out to me most, characters are secondary ^.^; the world is first. Although I never really find myself disliking characters. I just love world building, as well as the insight a world can give you into someones mind.
There are also some books that to me read more like someone telling a tale thats already been lived, rather then one they created. Some people to me I think have the gift to see into other worlds and tell us what happened there. Give us a insight into the realms beyond our own minds.
And when it comes to writing, and readings. The act of reading a written world. It stops being alone. Because as each person reads it that world grows. It takes place in our hearts and our minds and our own worlds, our own realms, start to sprout or evolve.
I have a world I love, one in my minds eye that has always been there. There is no story there yet, but with each book I read it grows a bit more, it becomes a little more real to me. And someday Ill write that story. But for now I read and it grows.
That world isnt alone. With what I read, learn, love, live. The hundreds of worlds in my mind, created, chronicled, or imagined. They become more vivid. Because each book is a piece of a writer, authors, or creators heart and soul. It is a piece that we take and hold onto.
I see into others minds when I read, what they have entrusted to us readers. I love nothing more then to hold a book(or kindle) to my chest and yearn for more. Always wanting more. And at times wishing, even a little bit that the author would have me in that world. What would that me be like. And then I day dream. What kind of me would be there, a world walker, a alchemist, a magician, a tamer. Would I be a human, a dragon, a shade.
I can accept these differences that are not the real me. Because no matter what my mind creates. My core never changes.
I suppose Im just rambling but some times I want to say the most whimsical and mysteries things. To make people think, remember, and above imagine. Everything is connected, you read one book and it will always stay with you, whether you remember it forever or not. Because it will always live in you.
Hopefully I will write something like what I read, hopefully I can impact someone else to be who they want. In this world or another.
I feel incredibly bad both because I knew I should and the fact Ive read more then I thought. I updated my challenge page and am still working to link and post prices on the various novels. I have something that may make it easier to create reviews in a timely manner after reading the book.
The month I hope to knock out more books.
The three weeks(19 days) I spent in alaska I read 26/27 books on my phone. And before that like my previous post was I read the last two in the shifed series by Cassie Alexander. Lots of books. Knocking out the numbers for my 100 book challenge.
Nothing much going on this month other then books, work and maybe, just maybe some writing.
So March is behind us. I read far fewer books then I had planned but given that Ill be away from home for 3 weeks Im hoping to up the book number count. I got a ton downloaded to my kindle/phone and plan to bring my hardcover of Feverborn~~~~ squeeing so hard. Im so happy to have it. The first book I bought with money I earned from my job.
Im going to try and do some reviews. Or at the very least some rants about some books. I was really tempted to after reading BloodShifted and DeadShifted by Cassie Alexander I love her book series. For realsies. Nothing quiet like a paranormal world with things going kaboom.
Things feel be going up for me. Even though last week I suffered the loss of a feline companion. 16 years she had been with us. And I will dearly miss her.
Ive been far to distracted these last few weeks. I got a job that has me moving around, with bad internet at best. Living out of my carry on most of the week. I havent read as much as I would of liked. But I plan to change that.
I bought FeverBorn by Karen Marie Moning with my own money. My first book purchase. Surely not my last.
To books ahoy!!
A lot of people embark on a time of change and pushing forward in January. New Years sets forth the goals. But far often people falter by the end of the month. Since too often they choose to do something they hate. Or something that makes them feel worse about the person they were the previous year.
There has been years Ive done that. Ive rarely actually manage to complete many of my goals. Because far to often I over shoot, or I give up on myself.
January is the time of Vision. While February is Change. I used January to set out and decide what I wanted to do. While February, this month, Im actually working on it.
I have a job interview, I have goals and ideas to work this out. And I have dreams. And for once it feels right.
I also have a new laptop >.> my old one died just after I switched over to the new XD motherboard died.
New Year, New You, but that doesnt mean you leave the old behind. Change is good, but dont push yourself beyond what you can do. And NEVER change because its what someone else wants. Goals and all the things that lead to your desires. Should be because you desire it and decide to do it yourself.
Over a year ago I graduated Highschool through a college. That was my choice, and I was never happier. My desires are my choice. And while at times I will be lost and not know what to do. I now believe that when I dont know, its ok to ask. And the same applies to everyone. There is always someone who can point you in the correct direction. If only you ask.
