When you finally find someone to talk to about THAT BOOK that you love so much and nobody else has read:

In fact, while we read a novel, we are insane—bonkers. We believe in the existence of people who aren’t there, we hear their voices, we watch the battle of Borodino with them, we may even become Napoleon. Sanity returns (in most cases) when the book is closed.

Learn to write by doing it. Read widely and wisely. Increase your word power. Find your own individual voice though practicing constantly. Go through the world with your eyes and ears open and learn to express that experience in words.

Me: But I have about fifty books at home I haven't read, there's no reason for me to buy these.
My brain: Okay, but consider this: more books.

Gentlemen Bastards indeed!

So, I suppose I’m the foolish one. It never occurred to me that Republic of Thieves (yes by Scott Lynch) was part of a series. I truly thought it was a stand alone. So imagine my surprise when I found out that this was the third in a sequence of books!

Of course, I still read about 50 pages of RoT before I got my hands in the first two books, and I can honestly say that I have never fallen in love with two characters so fast than I did with Locke and Jean. (Okay so Darien Frey is the exception to the rule, along with Johannes Cabal, but I did say two characters, okay?)

If you haven’t read The Lies of Locke Lamora (which is the first in the series, in case you didn’t know) I highly suggest it. Granted I’m only on page 85, but the characters are so absolutely brilliant that I can’t imagine the book not being worth it.
