Ironic Contradictions

I'm a long time reader - since way back when I was seven. That makes it over three quarters of my life that I will be a reader for. But it is worth it. When I'm not reading or wasting my time online on here or Goodreads I'll be off playing video games, studying teaching and messing around with friends and pop culture. Or reading some more.

Reading progress update: I've read 140 out of 800 pages.

The Black Prism  - Brent Weeks

I just thought I'd test out the new update function on Booklikes. I like that Booklikes is creating new functions on a weekly basis that improve the site's big issues. They seem to actually listen to their users.

Anyway, so far The Black Prism has one of the finest magic systems I've seen outside of Brandon Sanderson (though the word luxin gets thrown around far too often). I quite like how Weeks can also use his story to show the description. For instance, how the characters will ponder the appearance of a new character to highlight again to the reader what the characters look like.
