"If you have a gift for something, I think it’s wrong not to work at it, just because it gets hard, or because you’re scared."


-Amy Curry, Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour p. 247

A man on a quest. A Don Quixote searching for his Dulcinea. But keep in mind my good friend, Don Quixote never found his Dulcinea, did he? He did not. There sometimes isn’t much difference between a knight’s quest and a fool’s errand.

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour

Finished reading Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson, it was a great, quick read. It had a great story that inspires me to go on a huge road trip and make tons of stops! Great transition from old to new, from tragedy of the past to dealing with it in the present. The only thing I did not like about the book is that there were clearly way too many grammatical errors. It is like no one even proof read the author’s work, they just printed and bound it and sent it off. 

I know I make errors when I type, but in a book? Especially when they are greatly noticeable? 

Give it a three out of five stars. 

Been reading different types of books lately. Rereading the Harry Potter series, but other books in between each one. I finished The Princess Bride about a week ago. 

My review on the book is, exactly what it started out to be. It’s a bedtime story. A lovely and funny bedtime story. I loved it. It really made me feel like a kid. The writer’s voice also makes it sound like a bedtime story. I don’t know if I am making any sense, but you must read it. And just in case you don’t know the author behind it. The book says S. Morgenstern’s Classic Tale, but that is a fictional author. William Goldman is the true author. Just be sure you read the intros. 

Now, I’m reading Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. It is a great read so far. Definitely meant to be read quickly. Although, I haven’t read through it quickly because I haven’t had time to sit and read. Right now I’m halfway through it and am definitely not disappointed. I think it’s meant for a good summer read, while you’re on the beach or something. Anyway, you guys should go get it! :)

There have been five great kisses since 1642 B.C. when Saul and Delilah Korn’s inadvertent discovery swept across Western civilization. (Before then couples hooked thumbs.) And the precise rating of kisses is a terribly difficult thing, often leading to great controversy, because although everyone agrees with the formula of affection times purity times intensity times duration, no one has ever been completely satisfied with how much weight each element should receive. But on any system, there are five that everyone agrees deserve full marks. Well, this one left them all behind.
