All Souls Trilogy - by Deborah Harkness

I have just finished A Discovery of Witches - A Novel by Deborah Harkness Since it is book 1 of a trilogy, and I'm planning on reading all three of them, I thought to make up just one topic for them. Each book, though, will receive its own write-up. Title of the book: A Discovery of Witches - A Nove...

Yes, his book, Anger is a Gift , will be released by Tor Teen on May 22, 2018. I'm so very glad and proud of you, Mark. :) https://s26...

Re: Week 3-Study Spaces

For my study place, look for me either in my bedroom, on the bed with all the books around me and stacked here and there. The only difficulty with that is I probably set aside my study books and am reading a story of some kind. So for STUDY, you can find me badgering Sirius in the Badger library. I ...

Re: Week 3-Filling Your Free Time

My free time at Hogwarts would probably be divided between exploring the Forbidden Forest, searching in the library for fun books to read (and then reading them either there or in my rooms) and playing in the Greenhouses. I most definitely might be seen at the Quidditch pitch, too, playing. Or being...

Re: Week 5-Celebrations

I like the Rocky 'dance'. This is from the first movie, when he is first training and it's SO HARD for him and he's tired, and bit by bit by bit his endurance grows, his speed grows, and he can go further and further. And he runs up the steps, which before he'd simply not quite be able to do ... and...

I would absolutely love to participate in a Race Across Sweden. Oh, yes, those lovely dragons and visiting the different towns.

Re: Sabriel, Prologue-chapter 7

I'm reading it too! Actually, I was wading through it, page by page, sometimes sentence by sentence, because the world just wasn't making sense to me. But then I got further into the story and suddenly discovered I was starting Chapter 10. Well. This is good! I don't know that this will be a favorit...
