Its obvious how much I enjoy reading, although something I don’t often mention on this blog is how much I also enjoy gaming. This is a good year for gaming for me, new World of Warcraft game (Which I am yet to play, as waiting to play with a friend). I have just got and complete the new Tomb Raider game, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and currently playing the brand new Spider Man exclusively on PS4 as well as Assasins Creed Odyssey, not to mention the few games I also have pre-ordered, Spyro and Pokemon- Let’s go.
Now I know it seems strange me writing a blog post about gaming on my book blog, but the reason why is because some of these games are either based on books/ comics and/or have books to support the game.
When we bought the new Spiderman game I also bought the new book which came with it, this book is about the famous Peter Parker just before the beginning of this game. I really like the idea of writing a book prequal to support a game, this game is also based on a LOT of comics by Marvel and I’m pretty sure is one of their first ever superhero’s.
I have also bought the book for Shadow of Tomb Raider, I have actually got this game completed now but I’m getting excited to read the book related to the game.
I would love to hear about other passionate readers and gamers and what are their favourite books, games or even books and games connected to each other are. If you feel like it, leave a comment!
I am currently in the process a few pages from the end, of reading a new book – The Waking Land by Callie Bates, I decided on reading this book after I was given a sample of it at my old workplace by a colleague.
When I first saw this book, I definatly did not think much of it, but you know what they say about judging a book by it’s cover and much to my suprise the first chapter grabbed me in ways I didn’t think a book could. Straight to the action with lots of detail.
Throughout this book I have felt connected to the character Elenna and enjoyed reading her journey from young girl with her family to being kidnapped by a king, with her father being a trator, Elenna has been raised by the king as one of his own, until eventually she is framed for killing the king and her daughter who hates Elenna becomes queen, she is forced to run. An adventure about magic, and destiny I’ve been hooked with this book since picking it up, so much I have actually ordered the next one.
I have just got back from travelling around Australia for a month and I wanted a new book to start reading whilst I was out there. So, being as my boyfriend Dominic was a massive fan of these books and really wanted me to start reading them I decided to give them a try, The Wheel Of Time Series.
There are around 13 books in total and I decided to begin with the first to try it out – The eye of the world.
I will update soon…!!!
So I found Batgirl of Burnside so interesting I thought it was only right that I bought some of the older comic book stories of her to understand it more.
I did some reasearch and came upon this website: https://bookriot.com/2014/12/26/where-to-start-reading-batgirl/ as well as a few others and thought I should follow what they say.
I bought Batgirl: The Greatest Stories Ever Told – this is some of the classic stories about Batgirl and when she first became Batgirl and put on her classic cape. I also bought Batgirl/Robin Year One – so I bought this one because Robin (or later Nightwing) is very closly related to the reasons Batgirl became who she is and how they both have a relationship later on through stories, so it only made sense for me to learn both of their beginnings properly.
Conclusion: I bloody loved these – therefore I’m going to try and continue to follow this reading order later on.
Okay so I’ve been a little obsessed with watching a few batgirl episodes as I do love marvel and DC and I really wanted a hero I could really associate with and love and be well be No.1 fan maybe even try cosplaying… well I think I’ve found it!!!! I’m in love! COMPLETELY IN LOVE WITH BATGIRL!!!! Okay so yeah she’s good! It’s just wow! I can’t describe this… obvs comics aren’t for everyone but I do suggest that if anyone ever wants to get into them to try with something they are interested in knowing a bit more about first.
One of the main things I like about this book is how she’s a young college student going thought her everyday issues as a young female but she is also such a strong character and smart, a few things I feel women are sometimes told they can’t be! Strong, Independent but smart and not to mention beautiful! I think this is why I’ve come to love this character and story so much, another new strong female role!!! EXCITED MUCH!!!!
Okay so I decided to go back a little and read a Harry Potter book, so why not start with the first book!
I have bought the new covers for Harry Potter books and I have been really excited to get started in it!
For anyone who hasn’t read them… why not?!?!? These books were brilliant when I read them ages ago and still brilliant today!
Okay so I really like these new covers, these are really nice but I’m still not sure if I like the old ones more…. guess we’ll see…
So the first Harry Potter book is about a young boy who finds out he is a wizard and goes to a witch and wizard school and starts to find out his hidden past… including fighting a dark wizard Voldemort!
