Reviews and Other Stuff by Ria on Bibliotropic

I heard it was good, but have still yet to see it. Maybe when it’s out on Netflix if ever it is.

I keep seeing the advertisement for the game. I was never really into Final Fantasy, but I did play FFX and see FF Advent Children. Cloud seems cool, and his story-line is interesting.

This story reminds me of Killjoys (the sci-fi series) a little.

An insight that many people can relate to.

Again, heard good things but I wasn’t super excited about this one. Maybe I’ll be wishing I’d seen it sooner once I watch it eventually.

Content for Readers

*** $250 BARNES & NOBLE GIFTCARD GIVEAWAY – ends Dec 31 ***

Don’t miss out on your chance for it!

I feel the same way. I haven’t gotten into any podcasts yet, and I prefer reading or watching the video. For now anyway.

My favourites were The Troll Hunter and The Enemy Within.

Mischievous. I think my version sounds better xD

Other Fun Stuff

Skallagrim on Youtube

Bastard swords are one of my favorites.

Book and Author News

The Knight’s Order is doing pretty well. It now has 400+ sales to its name. Thank you eveyone for your interest, and I’m thinking about some goodies I can maybe provide in the future: Q/A about the story, comics, etc. If you have any ideas feel free to let me know.

Book 2 is coming together don’t worry. I’ve been planning, writing, rewriting. I’ve heard that the sequel is more difficult than the first book, and I’m beginning to think they’re right.

Relaxation and Fun

I’ve started playing Witcher 2 recently (giving Oblivion a little break). The game was on my list for a while but I finally got into it. I really like creating my own characters, so I was disappointed when that wasn’t possible. This is the first time I’m learning about the story, but I’m liking Geralt now and I can see why people enjoy this series so much. And yes I know I’m behind because Witcher 3 is out -____-
