Manage your time to read more

Well, hello! It’s been a minute since I’ve made a post like this. This was a request from a wonderful blogger (not sure if they’d be comfortable with me mentioning them) and I’m going to try my best to share how I manage my time to make room for reading.

Movie Review | Pride and Prejudice (2005)

I think you all know how much I loved reading Pride and Prejudice by now (You can read my review here). My love took me so far as to watch the movie on the very same day I finished the book.

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

Welcome to Weep.
