Ranting.

So. Now that we can clearly see how much I fail at staying active, I think we can continue.

I’ve been reading a lot of Sookie Stackhouse lately, the series that inspired True Blood. I’m so far up to book seven, which I plan to begin reading shortly.

I’ve already watched all the episodes of the TV show. It’s pretty good, and it has Alexander Skasgard who is well. He’s fairly good looking.

I also read Inheritance, the last offering to the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. It’s incredibly satisfying when predictions come true, but also a bit disappointing. Thankfully not all my predictions actually came true, hooray! There were still a few things I was annoyed at, however.
Like The Menoa Tree.
It was a tad anti-climactic.
I don’t know, I found the novel as a whole not great. It just seemed… unfinished to me, not the ending, I was expecting that, but there are so many loose ends that were given a quick fix, if that at all.

After reading Inheritance, I decided belatedly to read the other books in the series, but as I was busy studying for exams at the time, I got Eragon on audiobook. It took an incredibly long time to get through it, and I couldn’t help but think of how I would have finished the entire series four times over while I was listening to it. I honestly can’t be bothered getting the rest of the series on audiobook however, it takes too long. It did manage to put me to sleep each night, however, so that was soothing.

I am also procrastinating re reading Isobelle Carmody’s Obernewtyn series so I can read the newest release. Have you seen the length? It’s daunting, even for me.

But, with school holidays comes books that I’ll be studying next year that I need to read, these being A View from the Bridge, by Arthur Miller, Home by Larissa Behrendt and The Road, of which I need to find out who the author is so I can actually buy it…
Anyway, I’ve bored myself enough. Farewell!
