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 Sourcery by Terry Pratchett

Sourcery by Terry Pratchett is a story of what happens when a stronger wilder form of magic gets reintroduced to the Disc when the world's first sourcerer since the dawn of time is born. The inept wizard Rincewind is recruited, yet again, quite against his will into putting a stop to this new magic before it results in the Apocalypse. This book is quite hilarious and I just love Pratchett's imagery and humorous footnotes.

Review of Mort by Terry Pratchett

Mort by Terry Pratchett is the story of a young boy who becomes an apprentice to Death. There comes a time when Death wants to take a bit of time off and leaves Mort in charge of his duties, but things don't go quite according to plan. In some ways the story reminds me of The Sorcerer's Apprentice from Disney's Fantasia. This book is very humorous both in plot and in imagery and I especially love the comedic footnotes. I'd recommend this book to anyone who has enjoyed other books in the Discworld series or anyone who enjoys British style humor.
