Really liked this one! Am jumping right on the second in the series. Quietly enjoying these days that seem to go by much too quickly. Here's a picture of the moon beam and his Dada looking over some cliffs. Luckily it was a relatively warm day. Before this, he got all wet from splashing at the beach and we had to peel his soggy pants off. :) I love that unexpectedly, he clambers into our laps and plants kisses on us. ♥️ Don't grow up too fast!

Ashley85 Beautiful picture! 10mo

The Wise Man's Fear | Patrick Rothfuss

♥️ just as engrossing as the first book. Next please! Thought it was interesting the way this one was set up. I also have some suspicions as to where certain character arcs are going.

This is also our last month in Portugal. Then back to colder Serbia then by this June, back home. It's been a crazy first 2 years of the little moon beam's life, and I'm so happy I've gotten this time to see him grow and develop.

BookishTrish Where in Portugal are you? I lived there from 200-2002 11mo

Ridiculously in love with this book! Caved and bought the Kindle version of book 2. Fan girling and researching Rothfuss abd all things related to this book and find Lin Manuel Miranda is doing the music for the TV series. *Faints*

BethM Now if we could finally get book 3! 11mo
noughtwist @BethM I know! Hopefully he won't be R.R. slow. :) Though it had been a while... 11mo

wtimblin I've had this on my TBR for SOOO long! I have been putting it off for some reason, but everytime I walk past it on the shelf I get a little flutter of excitement! 'Soon my pretty, soon...' 11mo
SW-T Good book! Waiting on book three to come out. 11mo
noughtwist @wtimblin do it! You'll wonder why you hadn't done it yet when you start! :) Let me know what you think! 11mo
wtimblin @noughtwist Will do 11mo
LaLecture Whaaaat there‘s a tv show to come? With Lin having anything to do with it 😍? (Can he please act in it too 😍?) If Rothfuss keeps his pace of not writing the final book it‘s gonna be a tv series without an ending though 🤔😂. 11mo
noughtwist @LaLecture this is all I know :) https://www.nerdmuch.com/tv/151711/kingkiller-chronicles-tv/. It's going to be a TV series, plus a set of movies and a video game all from lionsgate. Rothfuss has spojen of it on his blog. :) 11mo

The name of the wind is amazing! I'm dreading when it ends as we are currently abroad and there are 9 people on the wait list at our library for the ebook copy of the second in the series. 😭😭

Enjoyed this. Quite an unsettling world, but Butler might have been a genius. ZZZzZZ'd through the new year waking only briefly at fireworks. Breathed a sigh of relief that the toddler slept through it (win!). There is an abundance of winter citrus in the back yard, so I may have to make a salted lemon tart 😏

tpixie Lovely photo!! Such a gem in the back yard! 🍋 11mo

Absolutely was bawling the last few chapters. 😭 Loved it, even if the characters were so unbelievably horrible human beings. Now time to finish a sweater to restore feelings of the warmth and goodness of humanity.

julesG Like the colour of your sweater. 12mo
noughtwist @julesG thank you! :) Hope I finish it before the new year haha... 12mo
julesG I was thinking about enslaving my kids to do all!!! the chores do I can finish my poncho to give myself a Christmas present. I fear mutiny though. 12mo

Also, "How awful it was, thought Tessa, remembering Fats the toddler, the way tiny ghosts of your living children haunted your heart; they could never know, and would hate it if they did, how their growing was a constant bereavement." ???. Picture is making crackers with the little moon beam

They say Rowling wrote Harry Potter in Portugal ☺️. Living here the last month and a half has certainly let me see how picturesque it is everywhere. Maybe the writing magic will rub off on me here too before we leave. Hmm... In between running after a toddler of course. Currently reading The Casual Vacancy (there was a copy left here at our Airbnb). Man, a lot of these characters are so nasty!

Arcadia: A novel | Iain Pears

♥️♥️♥️ loving this Iain Pears book! Random library pick. "People are naturally so fond of themselves that they assume the past must lead to them. They have egos of such size that they cannot imagine it doing otherwise. Rather like biologists of the past imagining the whole of evolution leading to Homo sapiens, so that we almost become the point of evolution, ...This desire is so strong we wilfully ignore all evidence to the contrary."
