So summer have gone bonkers and I cant deal with the heat anymore.

I have a reading slump, gaming slump and movie slump.

Please send icecream.

Guild Wars 2 Festival

The Festival of the Four Winds AND Crown Pavilion are back as a permanent summer festival! This have been a long time comming for sure. Even though Ive been in a disagreement with Anet for a while and not playing as much, this brought me back. It feels like this is the largest festival they have done with both the Bazaar map, multiple races and the combat arena.

Im happy too see that the combat arena with the bosses is not nerfed to the ground as it stands now. I really hope this might be a turning point for me to get back in to the game!

Do you play Guild Wars 2? What do you think of the festival? Let me know!

7 deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

Agatha Christie meets Groundhog day with a slight scifi/fantasy twist.

Debut novel by Stuart Turton and what a way to start! This is so creative and wonderful.

Now I could give you a description of the plot but this one is best to go in blind based on what I wrote above.

Minor spoiler

I love how Bell’s insight on “Ill be who I choose” is reflecting in the end with Aiden and Anna. He choose a new path.

Spoiler end

Mistborn

Fantasy from Brandon Sanderson and its really good.

The world the characters the magic…. Wonderful! I just have 2 minor issues.
1. The classic;
P1 “Im a nobody” P2 “No! You are special!” P1 “Really?” P2 “Wow such power! This is how it works…”
But I guess its how we as reader will get the info the smoothest/quickest way.
2. The constant use of the word Frowned. I swear if I took a shot every time while reading I would be dunk as a skunk.

This is a trilogy and the first book is my overall fav but can we talk about the ending in the last book? Oh no, spoilers…

What I can say is that the ending is EPIC. But, it took so very long to get there. Second book also suffered from the middle part being really slow. First book feels so different from the other 2 in the series.

First one is a solid 5 stars rating second is 3 stars for me. Most of the last book is 3 stars. Then the end begins and its 5 stars, therefore I pick 4 for the book as a whole.

Soooo a thing happened.

Kinda got carried away and accidentally removed the whole blog when I tried to move it.

The old saying once you learn it you dont forget clearly have not experienced brainfog. Anyhow. Lets make this a new start shall we?
