The Name of the Wind review (★★★☆☆)
Video / July 5, 2020

Yeah, I didn’t like The Name of the Wind as much as most people… If you (still) want to get the book you can do so here: https://geni.us/rothfusswind My goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/simonoxfphys Book videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiZiIJMDh4ymIvl9Jb92VBW6pGXbBrKZw I hope that in this rant I got my main point across, that I just don’t like Kvothe as a protagonist, and that the book lacks structure (specifically, which I don’t mention) in the ending. There are a few things I didn’t mention actually, including the writing of Denna, the nature of fantasy as a genre, and some of the characterisation. Those are all mentioned in my goodreads review!

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile by Bernard Waber – Book Review by Mrsreadforfun
Video / July 1, 2020

Hi! I am Shendel aka Mrs. Read For Fun! Join me as I generate excitement for children’s literature. Each video discusses a children’s book I love. I only select books I would read more than once, and draw from classic Newbery Award winners, influential authors, New York Times Best Sellers, popular series, and informative topics. These short reviews are great teaching tools for parents and teachers. My goal is to create lifelong readers by introducing them to books they will love. Children have varied interests, and my videos capture them all. These interests include: adventure, humor, mystery, sports, wildlife, animals, history, and more. I have been a reading specialist for over 40 years, and I continue to inspire children to become avid readers. Please subscribe to my channel for weekly posts.
