KDrama Review : The Bride of the Water God

KDrama Review : The Bride of the Water God

I had pretty high expectations for this drama. After all, it had a promising story of mythological proportions, which was adapted from a popular manhwa, and even had Krystal Jung in it, whom I love. Sadly, the drama didn’t really seem to know what direction to go in, and suffered from a lack of good writing, leads with no chemistry, bad acting, and from side characters who were more interesting and loveable than the main […]

Book Review : Tower of Dawn

Book Review : Tower of Dawn

Spoilers are marked, but read at your own risk!    When it was announced in an earlier installment of Throne of Glass that Chaol and Nesryn were heading to the Southern Continent, I was disappointed. I always loved Chaol, and am still bummed that Aelin ended up with Rowan, and was annoyed that Chaol would not be involved in the exploits of the next book, Empire of Storms, just because he was injured and angry.

It is still a very fun read, but I don’t like that the book is no longer centered upon Cimorene, her acceptance of  and the distinct lack of titular dragons.   Though this entry in the series still features Princess Cimorene, she is not the narrator or the main protagonist of […]

Knits: Baby Boy Blanket

Knits: Baby Boy Blanket

Baby blankets are in high demand; it seems like there is always somebody having a baby! In fact, I am already working on another one! Crazy, right? I’ll get my knitted dragon finished eventually….     I used the same lovely pattern from Red Heart. I just love the how delicate and complicated the finished result looks, even though it’s super easy! But this time around, I knit the blanket with a bit of my own […]

Book Review: Dealing with Dragons

Book Review: Dealing with Dragons

I simply cannot say enough positive things about this book. As one of my favorite series growing up, this book shaped my love of dragons, strong heroines, and fantasy. And reading it as an adult is still just as fun as it was when I was a kid, with its wry sense of humor, which constantly makes me laugh out loud, and interesting characters that break out of the typical fantasy mold. No one challenges […]
