Eldest, by Christopher Paolini is the sequel to Eragon. After an impressive 668 pages, I find that I’m a little disappointed that it had to end. I’m still not sure of the 3rd in the trilogy’s release date, but I’ll definitely be looking forward to it.
Science Fiction, Fantasy or Horror?
Science Fiction. I know you never would have guessed. Though I do love a lot of fantasy series as well.
Hardback or Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback?
Hardbacks, only if I plan on keeping the book or rereading it several times. Otherwise, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d rather not spend the money. I usually go with mass market, cheaper and smaller (to fit in the purse).
Heinlein or Asimov?
Asimov. The one Heinlein novel I tried reading, didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go so well. But IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve enjoyed the few works of Asimov that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve read.
Since Tuesday night is a slow TV night, I just read all evening. I finished up Lost Calling, by Evelyn Vaughn. This is the first in the Madonna Key series and falls into the category of romantic suspense.
Catrina Dauvergne is a museum curator who finds herself in the midst of an earthquake in Paris, France. When she falls into a fissure, she discovers special artifacts among bones dating back 200 years. When she touches the artifacts, she has visions of the women who owned the pieces when they were alive.
Dolce Bellezza passed along a fun meme. The idea is to be given a letter, hers was “D”, and then post ten things you like beginning with that letter. At the end of the post, she said she would give interested readers a letter of their own. I landed the letter “S”.
So, here are 10 things beginning with the letter S that I like:
1. Science Fiction Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Hence, my moniker. It all started when I saw Star Wars for the first time when I was only 2 years old. If my parents only knewÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
2. Sketching Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Otherwise, I would have never majored in Art in college. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve always loved drawing. But in 6th grade, I drew my first portrait. It was of Spock out of a TV Guide. And I realized it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t half bad. Thus, began my love of drawing faces. All because of Star Trek! Continue reading Letter Meme→
The Dresden Files series premier was last night. And I, for one, was not disappointed. The actors are well-cast, particularly Paul Blackthorne as Harry Dresden and Terrence Mann as Bob the skull. They play really well off of each other. For those that missed it last night, the SciFi Channel will be airing the pilot again today and tomorrow.
