Top Three Thursdays – Popular Fantasy Series I Haven’t Read

This was a new feature I started on my book blog and wanted to continue it here on an experimental basis. Let me know if you enjoy it and want it to become a permanent feature.

Hello and welcome! This is my weekly series, Top Three Thursdays, or, for convenience, TTT. Every week I discuss my top three in any bookish topic. If you’d like to participate, write up a post on your blog and leave a link to it in the comments below.

My First Guest Post!

As you can gather from the title, this is my first ever guest post.

Just some hobbits feeling happy.

Yay!

Briana and Krysta over at Pages Unbound are hosting this amazing, fun-filled event for the next two weeks – the Tolkien Reading Event. The schedule is up here, so be sure to check that out. I’m so glad to be a part of this as you all know what a huge Tolkien fan I am. This post will tell you all about my obsession. Thanks again, Briana and Krysta, for having me over. 🙂

Every year on March 25, the anniversary of the Downfall of Sauron, the Tolkien Society hosts Tolkien Reading Day. This year’s theme is Poetry and Songs in Tolkien’s Fiction. The primary goal is to promote the reading of the works of J.R R. Tolkien! To celebrate, Pages Unbound will be hosting two weeks of Tolkien-related […]

Guest Post: Welcome to Magical Realism!

If you could somehow see me typing away at my laptop right now, you’d definitely notice a palpable excitement on my face and perhaps the hint of a smile. This is my first guest post, dear readers! It’s a big deal for me because it’s one of those things you see on really cool, successful blogs. While mine may not be cool or successful by a long shot, I’m delighted to host a published, experienced author on Pages That Rustle today.

The Reader in Me

I intend to keep this post short because I just received some devastating news and it has totally put me off. However, I made myself a promise that I won’t skip a day in September, so here is the customary Monday post, the last for the September Reading Month.

Best of The Lord of the Rings: OST

I don’t have much time on my hands today and I really couldn’t schedule this post beforehand, so I was looking to write a short post this time around. This gave me a sudden inspiration. Although I’d originally conceived this series to be a book discussion (and fangirl feels outlet), I decided to include the movies as well. After all, why not? The movies introduced me to the books and The Lord of the Rings is the highest Oscar-winning movie series till date. Purists might discard the films as crass commercialization and call it but a shadow of the published works, but the movies did get a lot of things right. The first thing that comes to my mind is the soundtrack.

Fictional Fridays #17

Who thought holidays could be more stressful than the months I have to attend college? Strangely, I find myself having no time to do the things I want to finish and having all the time in the world to complete TV series in record time during my semesters. Another example of time being a vindictive creature, I suppose. Putting aside selfish concerns for a bit, I decided to write something, anything, to take my mind off of things. Here is the result (Incidentally, it fits this week’s Friday Fiction with Ronovan Writes Prompt Challenge #33 – Favourite Food).

Why Other High Fantasies Can’t Match the Power of The Lord of the Rings

An excellent post that I couldn’t resist sharing. It puts all of my feelings for Professor Tolkien’s work into words and I couldn’t have done it better myself. After reading this, I went to my Fangirl Level: Max state. 😀

Fictional Fridays #5

For this post, I’m not using any prompts. My brain refused to be led in the direction they were kind enough to provide. I’m giving it a free reign this one time. I’m actually much more comfortable writing fantasy than reality. I’ve slipped back to the comfort of my favourite genre here.
