FYI: Reading Randomosities (Giveaway, Cover, Chant)

FYI (For Your Information Ishness), here are some Reading Randomosities of a couple of random things that don’t make posts on their own but I wanted to say, so I’m tossing them together! πŸ™‚

#1 — Awesome Giveaway from Jenelle Schmidt!


Look at that! Jenelle is giving away a Christmas Givaway Ultimate Prize Bundle from Stormcave, including her three books (King’s Warrior, Second Son, and Yorien’s Hand) and other good stuff (CDs and another book), and it’s open for most of the rest of December, so go enter!! ^_^

#2 — Illusionarium Audiobook Cover

Okay, so this is TOTALLY random (which is kind of the point of this post?) but I noticed the other day while I was glancing over Goodreads that there was an Audiobook done of Illusionarium AND IT HAS A DIFFERENT COVER AND I LOVE IT. LOOK. BEHOLD ITS AWESOMENESS. (No, I don’t, in fact, know what you’re supposed to do with this information. Unless it’s to just stare at it. You’re welcome.)


#3 — I’m spontaneously rereading Chrestomanci

Yes, this is a thing. I should be doing all sorts of things like getting ready for Christmas and getting through other things I need to read… but I somehow got it into my head that it would be a blast to (finally!!) re-read Diana Wynne Jones’ Chrestomanci series… aloud… because voices… and because I needed something to semi-reward myself with/relax after the insanity that was NaNoWriMo.

So I just reread Charmed Life and alskdjflskdjlfj SO MUCH LOVE. ❀ (Fun fact: I read it for the first time almost exactly two years ago, in early December 2014. I read it the 11th then, and finished it the 9th this month. History does repeat itself.) I’m now on The Lives of Christopher Chant, which is a prequel about Chrestomanci’s childhood and it’s AWESOME.

I love these books even MORE on the second-reading, if possible. o.o DWJ books are like that.

(These are kind of strange covers but at least they match and aren’t AWFUL like some other ones… I actually have both these books in a double-book collection so I don’t have covers for them… *coughcough*) *dies of laughter at “follow your dreams” on the second cover* XD

That’s it for today! Thanks for reading!

Dream away in those pages! ❀

  1. For Your Ishness–that’s great! xD I have totally had this problem of wanting to say things but it not being enough for a full blog post. This is brilliant!

    OH MY GRACIOUS GOODNESS, THAT ILLUSIONARIUM COVER. It is perfecccct. *drools* I’m not even an audio book person but I want that one just so I can look at it. #ShallowBookWorm

    I’m so happy you’re choosing something to read and relax with after the craziness of NaNo. And what better than DWJ books??? I NEED to read these! And I actually kinda like those covers. They’re definitely better than some DWJ book covers. xD
