Why I decided to read The Wheel Of Time series by Robert Jordan.

I finished reading the A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, in March and since then I’ve been on the hunt for a really amazing epic series. If you search asoiaf on google,you will find the Wheel of Time in the recommended section. And that’s how I found this series. So after reading a few reviews I decided to dive in , and so far I’m enjoying myself immensely.

The Wheel of Time is a series of High fantasy novels by Robert Jordan. There are a total of 14 books , in addition to a prequel and a companion book which were published later. It probably take me a long time and a lot of dedication to finish this series , but atleast time will go faster in the never ending wait for The Winds of Winter.

Here is the synopsis of the first book The Eye of the World;

The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

I’m in the middle of the first book, so I can’t give an opinion on the entire series, but so far it has managed to grab my attention. I’m excited about the world that Robert Jordan has created and to discover it alongside Rand who is as clueless as I am.

Robert Jordan has a very descriptive way of writing ,so it’s easy to close the door to my room and live in an entirely differnet world.

So though its very different from asoiaf ,I’m happy that I’ve found another series that I can obsess over as I wait for the The Winds of Winter , which hopefully won’t be too long.

So do you have any book recommendations for me? I’m constantly searching for new books to add to my wishlist. Share with me in the comments.

Bye!

How Naruto Changed My Life.

I grew up watching Dragon Ball Z and Pokémon on Cartoon Network. I used to think of them as cartoons. For the longest time I didn’t even know what anime and manga even were. I was one those people who thought it was silly to watch cartoons when you’re not a kid anymore. That was until I watched Naruto.

My best friend who grew watching Naruto convinced me to give it a shot. She used to go on and on about how amazing it was and that it was better than Dragon Ball Z. So last summer utterly bored with my life, I decided to give it a chance. I was little apprehensive about starting it because by then it was over 400 episodes long and still going. But bored out of mind I watched the first episode and it’s safe to say I was occupied for the rest of the summer.

The first episode had me completely hooked! A vicious demon fox with nine tails sealed inside a baby. That part alone had me fascinated and I wanted to know more. What would become of this child who unknowingly saved his village on the day of his birth?

Throughout the series we see Naruto’s strong personality and his desire to succeed despite the numerous obstacles in his way. He grows up an orphan.The village he saved hates him and calls him the ‘Demon-fox’. He has no family and no friends. And his dream to become the strongest ninja seems rather far-fetched since he’s not the sharpest kunai in the drawer.But through all these trials and tribulations he perseveres to makes his dream a reality.

It’s not just the main character that has an amazing story. Most of the side characters are amazing in their own right with emotional and heart-breaking backstories that made me cry. Characters like Sasuke, Kakashi , Rock Lee and Neji, I could watch a separate anime just for them. Though I was a little disappointed to see that besides Sasuke none of them got much development in Naruto Shippuden.

I originally started watching in the English dub but the dubbed episodes stopped around 370 and I had no choice but to finish it in subbed and to read the manga. At first the Japanese sounded weird to me but now I watch all of my anime in Japanese.

Through Naruto I discovered anime and manga. I discovered an entire world that I used to think was for kids. I’ve watched many anime since Naruto. Some have been better. Some a little weird. But thanks to Naruto I uncovered something that is now a key piece in my life. Now I’m constantly searching for new and exciting animes to watch.

So comment down below and tell me how Naruto affected your life or if there is any other anime that changed you. Like and share my post if you like it.

Hi!

Hello! You’ve somehow stumbled across my blog. I thought I’d start with a little introduction. So, here goes;

I’m 20 years old. I’m currently in university and studying physiotherapy. Right now I’m in the middle of summer vacations, and I wanted to do something productive with my time, so here I am.

I have a lot of different interests so my blog might vary from topic to topic. But for the most part its fantasy and adventure novels, anime and manga. Even though I’m fairly new to Japanese entertainment (I started seriously watching anime last summer) this blog is going to be about my experiences discovering new awesome anime and novels. And Game of Thrones of course. Who does’nt love Game of Thrones.

Currently I’m obsessed with psychological thrillers and I’m on the episode 4 of Zankyou no Terror. It’s pretty good so far.

This is my first time writing in a long while. I remember I used to be good in creative writing in school, and I wrote a couple of articles for the school magazine but that was it. It’s my first time writing something in almost six years, so there might be some mistakes. Feel free to point out, I don’t mind criticism.

I’m constantly searching for new things to watch and read. So if you have any recommendations comment down below.

Bye!
