It's Been Awhile!

After a hiatus, I decided to post again! Mainly because I wanted everyone to know about a new book series I am reading that I love. It is called The Expanse series by James S.A. Corey (who are actually two guys) and the first book is called Leviathan Wakes. They sometimes collaborate with George RR Martin which is why I decided to check this series out. I haven't been this excited about a series in awhile. After ASOIAF, really wanted to find another fantasy series to love and got lots of recommendations. But I just couldn't find one that I could get into. I tried REALLY hard with Name of the Wind. Trust me! But I seriously hated the main character. I will say it was well written though. And the story was exciting. I may revisit it later, but I doubt it. That Kvothe guy irritated me so much! He was so full of himself and was perfect at everything. I like characters to have flaws.

Anyways, back to The Expanse! Yes! Check it out. It is a science fiction series which I usually do not like as much as fantasy. They always get too technical for me. But something about this one just grabbed me and I am in love. I plan on reading all of them. I believe there are currently 3 out right now and there are plans for more. It takes place in the future when most of the solar system has been colonized. Which has led me to googling a bunch on whether this might be possible someday! I have always loved reading about our solar system. Space is just crazy and I just can't wrap my little mind around it! The characters are cool and I like them. Mars is bad (I think) and a war is going to begin. I wish I could read it all day. I am still a slow reader, but that's ok. I'm not slow as much as I don't make time to read. I need to find a better time than right before bed. I always end up being too tired and fall asleep!

Let's see what else is new with Beddee. I got a Nintendo 3DS for Christmas and love it so much. This is another reason I haven't been reading as much as I'd like. I went a little crazy and got every game I wanted immediately. They are all fun, but I know I am neglectful of certain games. Like Luigi's Mansion. It's super fun, but I couldn't capture one particular ghost so I gave up! My favorite games are Zelda, Pokemon Y and all the Mario's. But my very favorite is Donkey Kong Country Returns! I am seriously addicted. I love that guy! I am almost done with it, but have gone back to try and collect all the KONG letters so I can unlock an extra level.

Another thing is that I am planning on running in the Bolder Boulder on Memorial Day! It's a 10K race and I am super excited. I hope I can do it (yes I can!) I have ran a 5K before so I just basically need to double that. I've already started training. I actually hate running, but have always wanted to run a half marathon. I think this will be a good start to reach that goal. And just maybe I will start to like it more!

Well, that is it for now. I will probably update this more but am not holding myself to it. I talked to Saucer and we were thinking about doing movie reviews. We both see so many movies! And Game of Thrones' new season is starting soon!!!!! I am so excited.
