The Bookfast Club – Potter Potter Potter

I’ve just recently finished both The Cursed Child and the illustrated version of Philosopher’s Stone so I just thought to stick them both in the same post.

The Bookfast Club continues

My to-read list on Goodreads just keeps getting longer and longer. I read every day but lately I’ve been more excited than usual when it comes to reading.

I spiced things up by randomly choosing books at the library again. Haven’t really done that in years. (I’ve been reading mostly series.)

I’ve been reading mostly in English so decided to choose something Finnish:

First book of the North End series: Niskaan putoava taivas by Laura Lähteenmäki.

3 Days 3 Quotes – The Lonely Wolf

Day 2! (I was nominated by Getting Through Anxiety! Day 1 here.)

I have to admit I hesitated to put this quote up. Because it’s from the Twilight series. Eclipse to be exact. Then I got annoyed with myself.

(I could write a whole essay about the love/hate-relationship I have with the series. Let’s just say I used to love the series in the beginning aka before the last two books and four movies.)

jake

But I do love this quote. By Stephenie Meyer. (The pic is actually from an ooooold wallpaper I made back in the day. xD Oh, the nostalgia.)

Jacob was my favourite character. (Still is, I guess.) I loved Jake/Bells before there was Team Jacob or Team Edward. I’m going to stop now before I get into a rant about how I hate how Jake’s story ended.

Bye.

3 Days 3 Quotes – Éowyn is my Hero

Exciting! I was nominated by Getting Through Anxiety for a 3 Days 3 Quotes challenge. Thank you! ♥

I happen to love quotes. Especially from music (lyrics) and books. (So of course when I’m doing something like this, every quote escapes my mind. Great. Well, it’s time to dig.)

rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a Quote for 3 consecutive days
  3. Nominate 3 bloggers each day

Éowyn 2

This is one of my favourite quotes. J.R.R. Tolkien. Beautifully written.

Éowyn is my hero and one of my favourite characters. I adore her. It’s kind of ridiculous how happy I am that  a character found happiness. But I am. Genuinely.

[I’m not going to nominate anybody because – sadly – I don’t really know enough blogs yet to nominate. Will fix this in the future for sure. *wink*]

Music Matters – Serenata by Immediate Music

Just thinking about this instrumental masterpiece gives me the goosebumps. Seriously, I’m shivering as I’m typing this. (And it’s not just because of this nasty cold I have.) I go back to this song regularly and fall in love with it all over again.

The song is powerful and pure epicness.

Here it is Immediate Music – Serenata:

(Btw I like this version better than Serenata Immortale.)

I found Serenata first when I stumbled upon the following The Host fanvid on YouTube. Still to this day it is one of my favourite videos. (Love the book, movie was kind of nah. This vid is way better than the movie..) I have no idea why the vid is not showing in HD.. Damn.

Excuse my fangirling now omg. I’ve seen this video so so many times and now I’m all hyped because I have NEVER before noticed that they used Jensen Ackles for Jared in the vid! How is this even possible! (And now I’m laughing for the Jared part. Get it? Jared Padalecki?)

Well I did see this vid before I started watching Supernatural but still I have seen this many times after I started to watch SPN. This video will never be the same again.

Btw starring also Ian Somerhalder as Ian. And I love the look of Sophia Bush as Melanie. ♥

This post has turned into a fangirl rant now. As my life usually does.

 

The Bookfast Club – Clive Cussler: Atlantis

** TWO STARS (My Goodreads)

This is the 5th book on Cussler’s Dirk Pitt series, originally titled Atlantis Found, and first one of his work that I’ve read. I think I gave this book to my (now late) Grandfather as a Christmas present. Later my Grandparent’s gave it back for me to read.

Better late than never.

                                                              2220

I was really intrigued by the first half. There was history and mysterious discoveries of an ancient civilization. There was excitement when people exploring these foundings were being targeted.

I was halfway through when I started to get annoyed. There was just something about Dirk Pitt (a James Bond style hero) and his friend Giordino that started to get on my nerves. The book started to feel like an old man’s fantasy instead of reality.
