Fin

Okay. I’m done. *sigh* *sniffle* *sigh* The best in the series for sure. Order of Phoenix is still my least favorite so far. Whiny Harry just wasn’t becoming. It seems Kuri finished as well. Haven’t heard from Demi-Boss or Mazing Amy just yet. I’m sure they are not far behind. Email me if you’d like to discuss. 🙂...

Chapter 6

Harry Potter arrived about 2 hours ago. I had one break so far. This is my second. At some point I’ll have to make dinner so I might as well take a breather now before I get in too deep. Will still avoid all internet and email contacts until I finish…hopefully maybe tomorrow morning. I’m a slow reader so sue me. ‘Mazing Amy is doing the same thing right now I am sure. 🙂...

Missing the books

I finally got to watch Memoirs of a Geisha last night when it arrived via Netflix. I must say I was a little disappointed. The movie sticks to the book quite well, but something was missing though. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Well, for one thing. Everyone speaking with thick accents kind of takes away a little bit of the drama. I couldn’t quite call it my new favorite. And I miss reading during my commute. The bus shakes way too much to focus, and of course there’s the stop and go. I didn’t get dizzy the...

April’s Sh*t Storm

The King Never Smiles by Paul M. Handley is coming out on April 16. It is a look at Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibhol in a way that no Thais would ever do: telling the story of a King as a person not a demi-god we make him to be. This summer marks the King’s 60th year on the throne, making him the longest reigning monarch in the world. The release date of this book in April is purely coincidental my ass, Yale! I don’t really object your coming out with a book, but can you show any less respect for...

We meet again, Potter

I finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I am starting on Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix because all the references this one made to it, I barely remember. The following section will be written in “Invisible Ink” for your protection as I will discuss my thoughts about Half-Blood Prince which obviously contains TONS AND TONS OF SPOILERS!! Use your mouse to highlight the section if you wish to read on. And oh yes, profanity abounds. Watch out, kiddies. THAT FUCKIN’ SNAPE!!! Oh, sorry. I meant, I LOVE the book. The best one yet! So much fun to...

When Harry Meets Oakley

PRAY to the gods that my copy of Harry Potter would be here on Monday. We have so many books in our reading line up right now, including my never ending attempt at reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell (Yes. I’m still gnawing at this one!), but I’ll wait for Harry. Brandon discovered his new favorite in Barb & J.C. Hendee’s series about Magiere, the half human half vampire, vampire slayer. A mix of Buffy and Blade taking place in Middle Earth sort of thing. And we just bought the latest 2 books in Jim Butcher’s Wizard Harry Dresden series:...
