I miss Firefly T_T
Read this on the New Year night.
I liked it, but Serenity: Leaves on the Wind made me miss Firefly even more...
Infidel is the second book in Bel Dame Apocrypha series. I'm still writing a review for God's War, but I can already tell you that INFIDEL WAS AWESOME. And very bloody.
No, I didn't choose this book because of the puppy.
Where is my tofu?! Gimme!
This was like an episode of a cool action show.
Ain't she badass?
That's quite terrifying. :D
Not as bad as what is usually posted on Escher Girls, but still... *side eye*
The Time Traveler's Wife was a bit too long for me, like ~250 pages too long (it's 518 pages total). I liked the time travelling parts, but the endless scenes where the characters were simply hanging out with friends listening to music and eating delicious food – those scenes were boring. And the baby stuff too. So it's a nice book overall, but I prefer different kinds of stories.
I finished this cute manga series about hamsters.
What do I do now?
How can I go on without those hamsters?
Oh look, what a cute manatee!
The shiny puppy for Admiral July.
When I woke up after finishing The Secret Adversary, I went to my room thinking, “oh, I'm gonna drink coffee and read more Tommy and Tuppence!” and then remembered I had already finished the book before sleep. :'-( I didn't want this book to eeeeend. The story was so full of adventures, secrets and twists, and the characters were charming. Luckily, there are a few more novels about Tommy and Tuppence! ^-^
A quote from The Secret Adversary:
'Isn't he a duck?' inquired Tuppence ecstatically, as she skipped down the steps. 'Oh, Julius, isn't he just a duck?'
A duck? :D I don't always understand British English but seems like it's something good. But why ducks? :D
One more Discworld novel, this time with lots of crossdressing women soldiers, and queer characters, and sadness. It's a book about war and gender inequalities, and it was much darker than other Discworld novels I've read so far. But, not everything was gloomy, have a quote:
“There have been better attempts at marching, and they have been made by penguins.”
Three manga short stories.
“And I read this candy wrapper!”
Feel free to tell me and Giggling Frog about your reading! ^-^
