I finished reading "Words of Radiance," Book 2 of Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive, this weekend! :D Honestly... I'm not exactly sure what to think of it....  I enjoyed it, a lot - maybe more than the first.  My reasoning is there are a lot more climaxes and humorous moments that I wanted to read again and again. I love the exploration of the powers and we get two main characters with two very different powers to explore!  I also loved the collisions of these characters, where in the first book, we bounce between three main locations and groups, but here, they all come together and it's hilarious (in the least) as they react to one another!  I finally get all the jokes about "I'm a stick," and "Boots!"  Also, my husband is a Cosmere fan, so he has pointed out the connections between books - such as Wit being Hoid (the character who shows up in ALL of Sanderson's books), and Zahel being Vasher from Warbreaker - and I still don't know what to think about his sword showing up word-for-word.

My qualms with it are actually about characters who survived.  There are at least four characters who you are made to believe are dead - and you come to accept it and are even satisfied with their deaths, but then they come back!  True, when a certain character died, I was very sad and thought, "OK, her companion character has no point now.  ___ is normal now and either needs the powers back or can die."  I was rather sad about this, since ___ was the main reason I loved the first book.  Also, with so many characters back into play, I feel so satisfied that I almost don't feel like I need a third book, and I have no idea how it's going to continue long enough for ten books!

While I'm burning through "The Mysterious Island" more quickly now, I found out my husband has never read "The Princess Bride."  He owns the movie and loves it, but has never read the book.  I'm fixing that now. ;) Though I have read it before, it's been several years, so just in case someone else hasn't ever read the classic, I'll provide a review for "The Princess Bride" when I finish that too. :)
  • Mood: Wow!
  • Reading: "The Mysterious Island"
  • Eating: Pancakes and scrambled eggs for dinner!

Rain on Me describes me better than any profile picture ever could. This picture was taken of my English/Humanitarian building on the campus of a private school focusing on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That alone says a lot about me, I think. I'll spell it out though; I love my religion, I love learning, and I love writing. Concerning photography, (since that's why most of you are here) this demonstrates my favorite type of photos: detailed and contrasting, and though most of my photos include nature and micro scenes, I try to meet these points.
There are a thousand words to a picture and I believe it's an art to know what they're saying. :)

Since photography is more of a hobby for me, I thank you for every watch, favorite, comment, and llama! I love to capture moments that I feel would have gone unnoticed if I hadn't been there to catch them. Everyone has a different perspective, so here's mine. :) Feel Free For Feedback, I love to hear it! :D SMiLE!

Favourite genre of music: Chill, and what I like to call "spiritually intense."
Favourite style of art: Nature and city photography, and Professional-thought provoking writing
Wallpaper of choice: Sunsets, Water Scenes, and Flowers
Personal Quote: SMiLE, and "Breathe, it's the cure to dying."

I absolutely loved this town and university.  I had full intentions to return to England and get my Masters here....  Looks like God had other plans. :P
