Free-post Friday(Saturday)- OWLCRATE-A-THON March 14-27

I have decided to take part of Owlcrate-a-thon this year, that starts today (Saturday,March 14). There are a few guidelines to follow:

1. Read the Owlcrate you’ve had the longest

2. Read the Owlcrate book that has the most pages

3. Read at least 2 books

I am going to follow the guidelines with the ones that I HAVE NOT read yet.

I will start this off with the one I’ve had the longest that I haven’t picked up yet; Caraval – Stephanie Garber. I will try to finish it by Monday for Review day. Wish me luck!

Free-post Friday- Answering Your Questions

Firstly; I want to thank everyone who submitted a question, I really enjoyed reading them!

Secondly; what kind of content would you like see more of?

Question by Jo: Have you read the Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks?

Answer: No I have not, but thank you for the recommendation!

Question by Carlos: What do you think of the Harry Potter series? Does it still hold up? Is it worthy of being considered a classic?

Answer: I have only read up to Book 3, but I have enjoyed them so far. From what I have seen, people still seem to enjoy them/still a fan of. Each new movie/book or play that came out brings in new audiences (for example Fantastic Beasts and Cursed Child). That being considered, since it’s still being recognized to this day, sure, I think it should be a classic!

Question by Acie: Sweet or Salty?

Answer: Sweet!

Question by Jordan: Have you read the Endgame trilogy?

Answer: No I haven’t, but thanks for the recommendation!

Monday Review: Darkly Dreaming Dexter – Jeff Lindsay (Dexter Series Book 1)

(MATURE CONTENT WARNING)

This is the book series that inspired the television show. Season 1 of the show is based on Book One of the books.

I really enjoyed reading this book, it gave me a whole new perspective of Dexter Morgan and why/how he became who he is.

If you don’t know about Dexter, he is a blood-splatter analyst for the Miami-Metro Police Department.

He was adopted at a very young age to Harry Morgan who was a very respected police officer, and Dexter and Harry’s daughter Deborah, followed in his footsteps.

What you don’t expect is that Dexter is also a serial killer, but he only kills those who deserve it; murderer’s, rapists, child predators, and other serial killers!

In this book, Dexter is investigating murders by what they call the Tamiami Slasher. Leaving behind subtle clues that only Dexter can figure out, the slasher makes his way to his next victims.

We find out later that the killer is Dexter’s biological brother who is trying to get Dexter to see how similar they are and to be more open about who he kills, not just bad people.

What happens next, well that’s for you to figure out 😉
