Books to Read When You are Sick

Zatanna Gets the Sneezes

My original idea for this list was Books to Read when you have a Migraine but then I just expanded it to whenever you’re any kind of sick lying around in bed and want to think about something other than how shitty everything is but also don’t want to pick up the latest 700 page tome.

These are quick (mostly) fun reads!

Summer is over and it’s time for my 2nd favorite time of year…

Back to school!

Okay, I haven’t had to go back to school in years but I still love when the school supplies come out and it means Fall is definitely in the air so I thought I’d do some of my favorite teachers in books, films and shows.

Return to Discworld: Thoughts on 7,8 & 9

Pyramids

Pyramids

By: Terry Pratchett

I took a little break from my Discworld reading travels at the beginning of the year. Maybe it was fatigue but Good Omens put me in the mood to jump back in. In the future I probably won’t follow the one a month schedule that I had been doing.

Discworld is great fun but it’s probably best when you’re feeling in the mood for the crazy…

Wyrd Sisters

By: Terry Pratchett

Grade: A+

“When you break the rules, break ’em good and hard.”

Welcome back Granny Weatherwax! The sixth book in the Discworld series brings in three great female characters, several Shakespeare illusions, playing with time and is all about the power of words and stories to shape and change our realities. All things that I love so I can safely say Wyrd Sisters is my favorite.

Sourcery Discworld #5

By: Terry Pratchett

So we’ve come to book five of the Discworld read along and the war between Wizardry and Sourcery that threatens the very fate of Discworld itself.

While I was reading this one I couldn’t help shake my head thinking, none of these wizards are exactly braintrusts are they? Which then got me thinking it’s a fine time for the 5 Smartest Discworld Characters.

Wizards vs. Witches in Equal Rites

equal rites

Equal Rites

By: Terry Pratchett

Grade: A

A dying wizard passes along his magic staff to the chosen eighth son of an eighth son. Only whoops- someone really should have checked on that first cause the son number eight happens to be a daughter and well, girls can’t become wizards!

Which after reading about the (not so) braintrusts of the wizarding world in the first two books you’d think gender shouldn’t be an issue.

Rincewind continues to have one of those days in which nothing quiet goes right. Twoflower and his awesome killer luggage continue to explore Discworld which is seemingly hurtling toward a red cataclysm in the sky and none of our so-called wizards can stop it.

Well, except for the one whose looking to increase his own power.
