Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to another instalment of Nessa reads and reviews. I’m really excited about this review because this is the 50th book I’ve read this year for my Goodreads challenge! 🙂 It’s also the book that took me the longest to finish! I started it on May 1st and finished it on November 21st! That’s over 6 months! >_< The reasons it took me so long to finish wary from: I didn’t have time… I wasn’t in the mood… I got lost in the footnotes… However, that doesn’t imply that the book is dull or drudgery; on the contrary the subject is fascinating, well researched and marvellously written. Academic books simply take me longer to read because of the richness and complexity of the work. I’ll touch on that subject a bit later.

Reviewing Guy Gavriel Kay’s Children of Earth and Sky
Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today I’m attempting to write another review of a book (shock and awe for that) that unexpectedly became very important to me. I believe that everyone has some sort List of important books where all those special, very dear to your heart, life changing, or just special because of reasons books go. Those books can special because you read them at a very difficult time in your life and helped you get through that period, and because of this that particular book will always have a place in your heart. Or perhaps that book helped you change or form an opinion on a particular subject, or a whole genre of literature, or influenced and inspired you to do something you thought you couldn’t do.
