Book reviews, opinions, musings and ramblings. General bookish excitement!

I’m Baaaaack!

You know that thing you do, where you’re in the middle of a brilliant book, you look up and you’ve missed your tram stop?Book Life

That’s basically what happened here.

I’ve been reading so much, and working so much, and gallivanting, well, a bit, and completely neglecting foxonbooks.

But no more! I’m back, and about to start filling you in on all the awesome (and not-so-awesome) books I’ve been knocking off my TBR pile.

There’ll be a few format changes, a few new things, and some that will beĀ familiar.

nerdjohngreenI miss ranting about these wonderful reading experiences. I miss my fellow nerds. This is going to be great fun!

But enough about me – how are you?? More importantly, what have you all been reading? I could use a few recommendations!

We have SO much to catch up on. I can’t wait!

Sensational Quote Sunday

Some books change your life. They change the way you see the world. They do this not only with the story as a whole, but sometimes with an idea, a beautiful phrase, or even a word, that resonates with you the way nothing has before.

Sensational Quote Sunday is my way of paying homage to those books that remind me every day why I love reading.

This week, I’ve chosen a quote from The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, because I’ve recently visited The Anne Frank Museum and re-read the book. I’m feeling a little World War II preoccupied at the moment, so allow me to indulge that.

It’s no secret that I have mad nerd love for Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles, The Name of the Wind and the Wise Mans’s Fear. They’re fantasy at its finest, and the language is one of the most wonderful things about these books. Here’s just one example:

Have a fantastic reading week!
