Where is time going???

Hey Y’all!

I got on my blog today for the first time in a while. Knowing that I was going to blog about something, but having no idea what I was planning on blogging about. Then once I was on here I remembered of course, and I also realized that I hadn’t been on here since April! And the middle of April at that! I have not been on here in over a month. :-\ Sorry!

But apologizing for not being on here is not why I got here. Instead I am here to blog about an awesome book that I read! 😛

*even if you are not going to read this who post please read the last part. I would really appreciate it if you did*

Recently I read a book called The Thief. It would also be the last book that I have read. I read it just a day or two ago. And hopefully I can read the other books in the series soon because our library has them!! 😀

The king’s scholar, the magus, believes he knows the site of an ancient treasure. To attain it for his king, he needs a skillful thief, and he selects Gen from the king’s prison. The magus is interested only in the thief’s abilities.

What Gen is interested in is anyone’s guess. Their journey toward the treasure is both dangerous and difficult, lightened only imperceptibly by the tales they tell of the old gods and goddesses.

Reasons why I liked this book:

  1. Gen. Gen was the main character, I would assume that you already know. He is funny, annoying, dramatic, lazy, smart, brave, and kind. He is just awesome! Without a doubt he is my favorite character in this book. Nothing could change that either.
  2. There is no love interest. For anyone… Which is nice. I do read romances, and I enjoy them. But when authors feel like they have to give everyone a love interest it gets a bit annoying. So the fact that there wasn’t a Main Character who was infatuated with someone was nice.
  3. The plot. It was awesome. You read the whole book thinking everything is happening one way only to read the last chapter and realize that you had no idea what was going on in the story. Not that is was suddenly confusing. Just the plot turned out to be completely different from what you thought. It was a lovely and welcomed surprise.

Things I didn’t like about this book:

  1. The language. It wasn’t to terrible bad, but it was there. And it wasn’t appreciated either. It wasn’t like in every page, forced into the book. But just occasionally a character would use it in speaking or in thought. I understand if maybe that was natural for the character but there is a way to have them say things like that with out having them actually in the story.

If you have read The False Prince, by Jennifer Nelson than you will like this book. This book in similar. The main characters are similar, in fact they are almost the same. Gen is better than Jaden though, because he isn’t half as annoying, he is smart and he doesn’t have a love interest…yet. (And I thought that The False Prince got worse with each book. The first was the only one that was really good)

So go give The Thief a try guys. I am sure some of you guys will enjoy it, while others will just think it ok. I haven’t read the whole series but those who have read them say that each book in the series is better than the one before it! So I can’t wait to read the others!!! 😀

 

Now before I end this post I just want to say something really quick. I am thinking about changing my blog name. I am thinking about changing it to Just Me, Just Being Me, or Just Mary. I don’t know. The thing is, I don’t really like Mary’s Moments. I don’t know why, I just don’t like it to terrible much. *shrug* I kind of feel bad about changing my name because I have had Mary’s Moments for so long….

Like I said I don’t know. I have decided yet. But please let me know what you think about it!

  1. This was a great post, Mary! The Thief sounds like a great book. Also, about the name change … well, I’m not sure what you should do, but if you’re asking which name I like best, I think my favorite is Just Being Me :).

    • Mary says:

      Just Being Me is my favorite too! My older sister on the other hand doesn’t think it sounds right. *roll eyes* I am really really thinking that I might change my name to Just Being Me.
      btw, Thanks for commenting! I love it when people actually take the time to comment on my blog. 🙂

    I will definitely have to look into The Thief! It sounds like a great book. ?
    I would agree with Savannah! I like the ring of Just Being Me. It fits well for your blogging style.? Which one does Bekah like best?

    • Mary says:

      Beck likes Just Being Mary. But I don’t really like having my name in the blog name. I don’t know why. *shrug*
      Just so you know the bad words that are in there are words that would bleeped out, and they only come up once or twice. Then other than that I think it is just damn a couple of times. I thought I would just let you know.
