Here are the music, books, and games that are making my week!
- Gaelic Storm. Fun band, funny songs, with lots of energy. And a bit of Irish.
- I just finished up book two of Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles. Here's a link to book on, The Name of the Wind. It fantastic, epic, character-driven fantasy - my absolute favorite.
- Speaking of books, I've had a nook color for a couple months now. I held out against e-Readers for awhile because I've always loved the smell and feel of books. But, I absolutely adore it! And I read 10x more often now that I've got books so easily available. Also, if you're into classics, many of them are freely available on most platforms.
- I'm currently reading The Winds of Khalakovo, another fantasy novel. This one has a Czarist flavor, and I'm a sucker for the combination of interesting magic system paired with social commentary. It's so engrossing that I missed my trainstop on the way home last Monday...
In other news, summer is revitalizing my interest in sewing. Sadly, I can't seem to find a fabric store that isn't completely depressing, so this obsession is on hold for now. I'm knitting socks in the mean time.
