Bloody Bookaholic's Commandment:

Thou Shall Read Till Thy Eyes Bleed

Sunday 26 July 2009

What day is today...

Oh right, Sunday, nothing happens on Sunday. Its the day of the sun, but no one worships the sun, except for George Carlin, but he's dead so, who worships the sun? I think I am going to start, but then again, that will go against my Atheist beliefs of not believing, that is rather a paradox. Lol rambling much?

Anyways for it being SUNday, and basically this is a book blog, I will post something from one of my two current reads.

Sun of God

"I've begun worshipping the sun for a number of reasons. First of all, unlike some other gods I could mention, I can see the sun. It's there for me every day. And the things it brings me are quite apparent all the time: heat, light, food, a lovely day. There's no mystery, no one asks for money. I don't have to dress up, and there's no boring pageantry. And interestingly enough, I have found that the prayers I offer to the sun and the prayers I formerly offered to "God" are all answered at about the same 50-percent rate."

-Brain Droppings by George Carlin, Pg. 20

On another topic I bought a book last Friday at *gasp* Borders *ends gasp*. I actually bought two, bur one was for me mom's, Breaking Dawn in spanish, she is in love with the series... Let her be.
But I got for me self "The Sweet Far Thing" by Libba Bray!!!!!!!!!! I am sooo excited, and already have read 200 pages- the book has 800+ pages.

Little Summary:

It has been a year of change since Gemma Doyle arrived at the foreboding Spence Academy. Her mother murdered, her father alaudanum addict, Gemma has relied on an unsuspected strength and has discovered an ability to travel to an enchanted world called the realms, where dark magic runs wild. Despite certain peril, Gemma has bound the magic to herself and forged unlikely new alliances. Now, as Gemma approaches her London debut, the time has come to test these bonds.

The Order—the mysterious group her mother was once part of—is grappling for control of the realms, as is the Rakshana. Spence's burned East Wing is being rebuilt, but why now? Gemma and her friends see Pippa, but she is not the same. And their friendship faces its gravest trial as Gemma must decide once and for all what role she is meant for.

So naturally I'm eating the pages away like if they were chocolate. It's the only SANE thing to do. I actually went to the beach today... and read. I didn't even touch the water, I don't think I even gave it a seconds thought. I know, I need help, but I don't want any help! Let me be a Bookaholic in peace ;]

PS; I do not want for anyone to basically feel uncomfortable because of my lack of religious beliefs. I do not care if you are Buddhist, Christian, or anything else. And this is a bookblog, not a religious blog, so I see no mind in getting uncomfortable for the quote from the book, or my personal statement.


  1. I am currently reading it too; I have finished Rebel Angels yesterday and started THE SWEET FAR THING.

    I love Libba's novels.

  2. I finished the Sweet Far thing in one day when I read it.

  3. I have A Great and Terrible Beauty sitting on my shelf for awhile now, I really need to get to it...Did the same at the beach while reading Hunger Games never touched the water luckily had plenty of sun screen on too :)

  4. I still can't decide if I want to read this series~ I've always been torn between reading and not reading it. Hmm.

  5. *Can't read review of Sweet Far Thing!*

    Okay, now that I forced my eyes past the review, happy Sunday to you, and I hope you enjoy the book I can't read about until I have a chance to read it myself. :)

  6. I love Libba Bray! I'm glad you seem to be enjoying her series! Can't wait to hear what you think! x)

  7. I didn't put any review Amanda xD I just babbled lol

  8. I just wanted to comment on the George Carlin reference. One of the funniest people ever. Hearing or reading his words always brings a smile to my face.

  9. I know this is old and my comment's gonna be random... buuuuut there's a special edition of Breaking Dawn at my drugstore that has a DVD and poster and stuff. I want to try to convince my mom to buy it for me. Haha, that's all. :)
