  1. The Name of the Wind has about 700 pages and its sequel The Wise Man's Fear has 1347 pages! That was quite a challenge

      hope they are going well...my boys are doing exams too..one just finished uni and another final school year

  3. My exams just started yesterday! I have a good feeling about the one I did yesterday but I'm kinda nervous for the one tomorrow!

  4. Who/Where Are You?

    I am a young hero who just called down fire and lightning and killed some bandits
  5. Maybe you will also like The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Besides the hero being male I think it fits your criteria. It's the first part of a trilogy and I really enjoyed it
  6. I can also recommend The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. The first book is named The Name of the Wind and I'm currently reading the second one, The Wise Man's Fear. I absolutely loved the first and so far also loving the second. The third book is still being written I believe.
  7. I totally loved The Name of the Wind and I'm still reading The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, but I'm already looking for something in this genre to read next. Does anyone have some recommendations?
  8. Chiara's reading list 2012

    Yeah I already read the first and I liked it a lot either. They made one book with the whole trilogy in Dutch, so I bought it a few weeks ago and am very curious about part two and three. Ah that's a shame, I really hoped it would be a good book since I find the story very interesting. I will give that a second thought before buying it. No not yet. I still have the possibility to take two re-examinations this week, I have a test tomorrow and I also have to visit my future university this week so I'm very busy. Then I'll have one week vacation and one week free from school to study for my exams and then they begin.. And then hopefully, I will have finished my high school and I will be going to the university
  9. Burned once, won't touch again.....

    What the night knows by Dean Koontz. It was absolutely terrible. I didn't finish it and returned it a few days after I got it. I won't ever be reading another book he wrote.
  10. Maze Runner Trilogy

    I also really liked The Maze Runner. I think it's a fascinating story and there are a lots of turns you don't expect. I was a bit disappointed at the end though, it wasn't really what I expected and I would have preferred a different ending. I am very curious about The Scorch Trials because I feel like the story can go various different ways.
  11. The Hunger Games - Film

    I saw the movie last week. It's a really good movie, but I feel like some things could have been done better. I also thought it was a bit rushed, and I think it would have been better if the movie concentrated more on the games instead of everything before the games. I know the events preceding the games are very important in the book as well, but the movie should have shown more details about the games themselves.
  12. Chiara's reading list 2012

    This is my current TBR-list. I will keep updating this because there are way too many books I want to read! The green books are the ones I own. This way you can also see which books I own and which books I will be adding to my bookshelf (buying books has become a slight addiction). The ones that are red are the ones I really want to purchase in the future. The books that are striked through are the ones I read. I don't want to delete those from my TBR-list because I like to see how many books of the list I have already read TBR-list - Beneath the skin by Nicci French - Until it's over by Nicci French - Like a charm by Karin Slaughter - Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter - A faint cold fear by Karin Slaughter - Kisscut by Karin Slaughter - Bloodprint by Kitty Sewell - Buried by Mark Billingham - In the dark by Mark Billingham - Knight errant by Garcia Robertson - The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (re-read) - Room by Emma Donoghue - Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate - Rapture by Lauren Kate - The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate - The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins - The Green Mile by Stephen King - The Running Man by Stephen King - The Long Walk by Stephen King - I am number four by Pittacus Lore - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson - The Hobbit by J.R.R.
