“I cannot sleep unless I am surrounded by books.” ― Jorge Luis Borges

Borges has a good point, no? 

As bookworms I think it is safe to say that simply owning books is never enough. As amazing as they are, we are all guilty of growing our passion of literature with more THINGS. At least I am. There are so many items and little bookish gems that show our love for books! Whether it's candles, posters, or a simple Christmas ornament, collecting visual representation of our favourite novels is not only fun, but a tad addictive.

Book/Film Thoughts: Wizard of Lies

"If he was an evil wizard, his power was vastly enhanced by the fact that we all moved into the castle with him." - Diana B. Henriques, The Wizard of Lies

Is being a liar a blessing or a curse?

For financier Bernie Madoff, it is both. 65 Billion Dollars. That is how much money Madoff swindled out of the people in his life. His friends, his family, and a whole lot of Wall Street investors. Why? Well that is what Diana B. Henriques explores in her biography of the man who pulled off the biggest Ponzi scheme in history. 

Film Review: Wonder Woman (2017)

 "It's not about deserve, it's about what you believe. And I believe in love." - Diana (Wonder Woman)

The best superhero movie I have ever seen. 

That is what went through my head as the end credits for Wonder Woman (2017) rolled. The film came out in June so I know I am a bit late, but it was so worth the wait. Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is. The Amazon princess warrior with her lasso of truth and incredible fight skills. But you have never seen Diana like this. Gal Gadot was amazing! She got the character so well. I know she has played her before in a previous DCU film, but the way she handled the backstory...BRAVO. 

Thursday Thoughts: Are You A Seasonal Reader?

“Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Summer has come and gone and Fall has taken its place.

Now does this change your reading habits? The change in seasons tend to alter my habits and I love it. I naturally gravitate towards darker novels or Harry Potter when the days grow darker and the air cooler. I am not sure where the need comes from, but it just seems right, doesn't it? To read a scary book when a thunderstorm is booming outside. I think I also read a bit slower as well. I take my time to read and enjoy books a bit more. I believe it is because of the holidays. They tend to make me a bit more lethargic. 

Book Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas (Spoiler Free)

"No one recognizes me here. No one has ever heard of Anielle. And it's...refreshing." - (Chaol) Sarah J Maas, Tower of Dawn 

My Chaol heart is full. 

Writing spoiler-free reviews for Maas novels is never easy, but I am going to do it! About an hour ago I finished Tower of Dawn which is the sixth book in the Throne of Glass series by the amazing Sarah J. Maas. This lovely book follows the adventures of Chaol Westfall and Nesryn Faliq as they continue on from where we left them at the end of Queen of Shadows when they ventured to the Southern Continent to raise an army to fight Morath. This book runs parallel to Empire of Storms so no new information to be added, but they did have a rather immaculate adventure of their own. Read the full synopsis from Goodreads below:
