Belgariad book one The pawn of prophecy.

So hey its me again, sorry for not posting for a while it's been real busy around here again.
 I am trying to post every two weeks now so hopefully l will keep at it :)
The book for today is book one of the Belgaried series The pawn of prophecy
This book is unique and well written it is a bit slow to get into, it follows the story of a young boy Garion who is just a plain old normal boy on a farm with his aunt Pol living a simple life with few difficulties or misfortunes.
 That is what you see at first at least.
 When one of the most precious things in the world is stolen ( you don't know what) Garions life is turned upside down setting in motion ancient prophecies as old as time, and introducing new ideas and possibility's that Garion would never have believed if he had been told about them prior to this.
And pillars of his life come tumbling down as what was imposable is made possible as he leave with his Aunt who is not who you think and the bedraggled old story teller on a quest to retrieve what was stolen and fulfill a prophecy that he does not even know about.
 Garion on this quest is discovering who and what he is and what he is capable of.

The plot for this story though very basic is also very frustrating as questions are slow to be answered and you know just as much as Garion does about it.
It has magic (sorcery) in it in case you don't like that sort of thing, and a few references through out that are not for very young ears.
the characters are only introduced and are still growing by the end of the first book but you grow to like or hate them by the second book (Aunt Pol is my favorite.)
As this is a book with a lot of travelling in it it can be a bit repetitive if you have no patience for it.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and please tell me what you think about both the book if you read it and the post i.e what was missing problems etc.

Catching Fire Review.

After winning the last hunger games you would think things would get better for katniss everdeen right? 
Wrong winning the hunger games was just the start of yet another nightmare for her.
and this new nightmare started with a tour, the victory tour,
held between the annual hunger games so you never have time to forget the horrors of the game,
and in this tour you are forced to celebrate the games and if you are the victor you have to be the main attraction forced to travel the districts celebrating the slaughter that is the hunger games,
also whispers of  revolution reach katniss's ears and that she has started it, getting her a visit from president snow himself telling her to show that she did not mean to start the revolution or else,
 and after a very distressing thing happens at the next huger games it looks like the revolution has completely started.

yet another fascinating book that i enjoyed immensely, maybe not as much as the first book, partly because i had not much of an idea of what to expect for the first.
but anyway it is still fabulous with a great story line. 

 Katniss is still a good main character as are all the other characters from book one, also there is some new good characters, Finnick for one also Beetee and Johanna.
 So please if you haven't read them please do they are Fabulously fantastic and thrillingly awesome!!!!

The hunger games

Well it's been a long time,
But I'm back and reviewing The Hunger Games Book one!
When I turned 15 in May I was aloud to read it after years of waiting and wanting, and I am glad I waited it is definitely an older book series I would say no one under 15 should read it.
Its funny I used to love hearing spoilers but now I hate them I definitely did not want to know spoilers for this book, I avoided them like poison (: and Nightlock at that :)

So the story line it's a futuristic Novel in what was once North America,
Which is split into different districts which no one is aloud to leave.... Well except for when it's was the time of the hunger games.
Where the president to show his power and the districts weakness he has two children picked at a random one girl and one boy from each district to fight each other to the death in an arena.
But when Katniss's sister Prim gets chosen she volunteers to go in here place.  
And even though the odds are not all in her favour she proves herself to be a dangerous and skilled enemy, even outside the arena 

My favourite character was a girl called Rue who even though small knows how to survive, and being younger than the rest of the tributes she certainly is smarter than them.

Katniss is strong if not a bit fickle, but every thing she's done is for her family and friends.

Peeta is kind hearted loving and will do any thing for people he loves.

So hope to heir from you, please comment and tell me your opinion.
I will probably be reviewing the next two hunger games, The Spider kings and the Maze Runners.
PS. Sorry its a short post.

My new book idea..

Yes I have a new idea for yet another story to write and it is about the Chines zodiac well in a sense. 
Firstly what is the zodiac? Well its a repetitive twelve year cycle that that the Chinese have and each year is represented by an animal, So like I was born in the year of the dragon and that's partly why I like dragons so much, because its sort of like my special animal.
So the story is that some people have a special power to be able to change into the animal that was the year  they where born.
 So the main character is born in the year of the dragon (of course) and he can change fully or partly into a dragon so if he wanted to he could have the throat of a dragon and then breath fire,

Any way he go's somewhere to learn about his powers and such.
There is going to be a bad guy but I still have to work out his goal and I might add something like goblins in........ any way its still very new in the making and I will have to think and write some more before I can say any more.
 So a very short post but I just wanted to tell about it so TTFN Ta Ta For Now!
