Summer Book Quotes

 

So, halfway through the year and halfway through summer. I’ve been getting though my last batch of library books before having no library books for over 24 hours while trading my hometown library for my depressingly small college library.

 For the first half of summer, I’ve been reading a mixed batch of the great and disappointing.

Strange The Dreamer

7/12 stars; The beginning built up a tower of magic, and the second half brought in graffiti artists. 

Lazlo “‘Beautiful and full of monsters?’                                     Calixte ‘All the best things are.'”

 

 

Sherlock Holmessher

12/12 stars; I love the deductive logic and the humor.

Sherlock  “Would you be afraid to sleep in the same room  as a lunatic, a man with a softening of the brain, an idiot whose mind has lost it’s grip?”

Sherlock “Ah, that’s lucky.”

Game Of Thrones

4/12 stars; I began it after seeing several episodes of the show, and the book, while the same plot, is not well written or has as much detail as the show.

Tyrion “Why is it that when one man builds a wall, the next man immediately needs to know what’s on the other side?”

 

 

What A Writer Needsdownload (14)

12/12 stars It takes the approach of a teacher instead of a writer, offering student examples to explain his writing mindset.

“Teachers must be wary of imposing the ‘correct’ interpretation to a poem or book…The author has created for many different readers to climb inside of it, to make it their own. An ambiguous ending…will challenge the reader to take a more active stance toward the book,…will challenge students to defend their interpretations.”

Sorry if some of these are too long. Here’s a hot Englishman.

  1. Oh dear! I’ve read such amazing reviews lately on Strange the Dreamer . I personally only bought it for the cover… I mean, isn’t it absolutely beautiful?!?!?
    I still have yet to read it, but I’m surprised you only gave it a 7, any particular reason?
    I definitely look forward to reading more from you in the future Tanya, Happy Reading! 🙂
