I've been a book worm for pretty much my whole life. I've read many types of books over the course of my life, but currently the sorts of books I enjoy the most are fantasy and science-fiction. I particularly like it if these genre's are mixed with comedy like the style of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. I definitely can enjoy more serious fantasy and science-fiction though. I also enjoy vampire books, but not quite as much as I did when I was younger.

This blog is mainly for my book reviews, but I also post quotes and other random book related things. If you'd like to know more about the books I've read and am planning to read, I'm a member at several different book sites, and links to my profiles are listed under My Pages.

Review of Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett

Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett is about a young girl that accidentally gets bestowed with wizard magic in a world where men are wizards and women are witches. She tries to train as a witch but finds it to be inadequate to learn to control her powers and must seek out Unseen University to try to get training as a wizard. While this book wasn't quite as funny as The Colour of Magic or The Light Fantastic, there were still plenty of bits to make me laugh and I really enjoyed the theme of defying accepted gender roles.
