Goodreads Synopsis:

Dear Reader,

I’m sorry to say that the book you are holding in your hands is extremely unpleasant. It tells an unhappy tale about three very unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. From the very first page of this book when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news, continuing on through the entire story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say they are magnets for misfortune.

In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast.

It is my sad duty to write down these…

Little Plastic Straw, Where Art Thou?

This is really good. Go read it. That’s all I got.

Little Sea Bear

We live in a society that is growing conscious of the harm we do to this planet and how we can reduce it. And that’s great!

We only have one planet. If this one goes down the drain we and our future children cannot decide to move to Mars or another galaxy far far away. We’re stuck here and it’s important that we are aware of that and look after our planet. Dad and I recycle everything we can, our recycling bags are often full to the brim and I think it is important to help the environment the best we can.

Lately, plastic straws have been a hot topic in the news…

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

The Critiquing Chemist


Rate :5/5
Medium : Audiobook
Overview (No Spoilers) :

I’ve heard so many people mention The Wheel of Time series, however it is usually in context of commenting on the unusual length of the series or Jordan’s unfortunate passing prior to the series conclusion. It occurred to me while reading The Eye of the World that I’ve never actually had someone come out and tell me, “You NEED to read this series,” instead the recommendation was merely implied because it was just that good. At seventeen total books I knew it would be a major commitment to reading this classic series, and I’d expected the plot to be plodding and methodical to allow for the sprawling of so many novels. In hindsight I should have realized that a series that is as touted by so many book lovers would in no way be slow moving.  Jordan’s narrative, picks up and…
