So, I’m not a big Lord of the Rings fan, to be honest. I liked the movies alright and I enjoyed reading The Hobbit, but it was never a big deal for me.
My boyfriend is a huge Tolkien fan though, so we went to see the Hobbit (and got to drive back through freezing rain, but sure, it was worth it). I enjoyed the movie, and it’d been a while since I’d read the book, so I kinda forgot who died. (Oh, right, spoilers if you haven’t seen it or read the book).
So why the hell did you add that random lady elf who my boyfriend assures me was not in the book just to make her and Kili fall in love just to kill Kili! God. I forgot that Kili died. I thought they all lived, the only reason I started to suspect otherwise was when Thorin said, “We’ll live to fight another day” and my boyfriend laughed. So I was like, alright, Thorin dies, whatever, don’t care that much. But no, you just had to kill Kili. After making me care about him. This is some fucking Game of Thrones shit right there.
But yeah, that’s about it for my review. Other then Legoman’s improbable jumping on the Incredibly Structurally Unsound Bridge, I didn’t really have any issues with it (coming from someone who remembers the book as having “lots of colors” and not much else).
I’ve been sleeping a lot because I’ve just been super tired, probably because my feet are trying to heal themselves. I’ve progressed from not being able to walk at all to being able to walk slowly on carpet if I have something to lean on. I’m right on the edge of finishing my second manuscript, which I’ve tentatively titled Wildflower Crown. I think. I wrote it down somewhere but I forget it now, but I think that’s it. Hopefully I’ll get that finished before Christmas so that I can start editing Only in Whispers.
