I can't stop reading, and not just books but graphic novels as well. Since I was little I have always been looking for the next world to delve into, and because of this I'm always excited to try the next story. I love the feeling when you start a new book, and get that feeling of excitement that you will soon be connecting with new characters. I have always been on the search for new and better books, and I have no doubt that I will find them here!

This is a dynamic tale with an amazing amount of character development and world building. The world of Roshar is the most well done I have come across. Brandon Sanderson does a spectacular job making the characters as well. They all have amazing backstories and some of the best development I have ever read; The 3 most important characters are Kaladin, Shallan, and Dalinar. Each make you love them and want them to succeed so much that when they have failures it feels like yourself, too, have failed.

This book is the type of book you cant stop reading. Its not even the story that kept me going so much as the main character. John Smith, I just wanted to hear more from him. As he entered the minds of people it felt like we were as well. Don't get me wrong, the story was also amazingly fun. The background story to the main character is just as interesting as the main plot, making the whole book continually fun to read. I hope to see more books from the author like this one!

Published: Orbit - February 16th, 2016

The Immortals is a story of the gods, but it ends up being a story about what humanity is.The gods have lost their powers, and it is because of the lack of people worshiping them. As the gods lose their power, the become more and more human. They start becoming less fickle and even  the memories of their godhood get fuzzy. The main character is Selina who is also known by the name of Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt, or The Punisher. The story follows her and a classicist named Theo as they try to solve the murder of Theo's ex girlfriend Helen. I could not stop reading this book after I picked it up. It is a great book for someone looking for a mix of "Percy Jackson and The Olmpians" and "American Gods".

February 2014 William Sandford Nye or Bill Nye the science guy was part of a evolution vs creationism debate with Ken Ham. After this debate Bill was inspired try his best to educate Americans. Throughout this book he is very respectful to all points of view and he shows, very well, that his intention is education. Bill nye explicitly says he did not do this book to infringe upon the beliefs of others, He only is trying to show America that we can not leave out science and evolution in teachings because of a point of view that not everyone agrees with. Undeniable does an amazing job of explaining evolution and many things about our world. It also lets you have a glimpse into the mind of Bill Nye! Now, who wouldn't want that after seeing his show. Even if an individual does not agree with Bill it is still a great chance to see what one of the greatest minds of our time.

You know that feeling when you read a book and you get so excited, your heart starts racing and you just can't read fast enough?? I felt this throughout most of The Fireman. I can't even put into words how much I loved this book. It is Joe Hills best work yet, and it is the type of book you pick up and don't put down until you have turned the very last page. Joe did such a good job creating these

characters that I felt like I have met them in real life. After I read the book I saw a Q & A Joe did about it. It made me appreciate the book even more! If you want to know more about him click this link to the PDF of the Q & A
