About a Month ago I posted THIS post about my conflict concerning the Game of Thrones books, and the HBO series. I was in a dilemma about whether I keep on reading the books past season three or stick to following right along with the show like I did for season one and two.

It was tough because season three of the HBO show ends a little past the half way mark in the third book.  Read the rest of this page »

Tomorrow this movie comes out and everyone has been so hyped up about it I decided to read the book.

With much speculation my original thoughts were ok great another twilight book, which I enjoyed at the time but would not really want to read the same plot again with different circumstances.

However I very much liked the Hunger games. The thought of some chick going around shooting people always leads to good times. Read the rest of this page »

The Pirate King

The Pirate King by R.A Salvatore is another book from the endless list of legendary Drizzt Du’Urden novels. I have been trying to catch up with all of these books but as soon I finish a book of his he comes out with another one. The Pirate King is the second in the Transitions series.

It starts off a few months or so after the end of The Orc King. Drizzt and Regis plan a trip to go visit Wulfgar back in Icewind Dale. On the way the run into the Harpells family who are turning fugitives of the town near their mansion into animals. This leads to a conflict and discussion between Drizzt and Regis on how much one should be involved with cities policies even if they do not think it is right. Read the rest of this page »
