    Shortly after getting through the Hobbit movies and book, I moved on to Lord of the–movies then books. The first in a series of three, Fellowship of the Ring tops off its predecessor, The Hobbit. All Middle Earth is in dire danger when Sauron returns, searching desperately for the One Ring–the shiny trinket which Bilbo now has. But Bilbo seeks to move on and leave the Shire, so it is passed on to his adopted cousin, Frodo. Frodo soon finds himself hunted mercilessly by Ringwraiths, orcs, and Gollum, and struggles with the growing temptation to slip the ring on. I loved The Fellowship of the Ring because the descriptions popped with life and Middle Earth felt all the more alive than the Hobbit. Although the plot drags in some places, it is well-worth the read.

    happypug12's book review was featured in The Hobbit.
    After watching the Hobbit movies and loving them, I wanted to read the book. I was surprised at how little they changed in the movies. This classic tale begins in the Shire, and in the Shire lives peacefully Biblo Baggins. He is a respectable Hobbit who has nothing and wants nothing to do with adventures and journeys and peril. But he is soon swept up on an dreary, dangerous, wet, hungry journey with dwarves to exact their revenge on the wicked dragon Smaug and reclaim their long-lost gold. I really enjoyed reading the Hobbit (although the writing was unclear at some places as if the author had too many ideas going on at once) and it was an interesting mix of poetry, adventure, and is just overall an epic tale. A perfect classic for all ages, young and old, adventurous or not!

    One word. AMAZING. Even though I saw the first movie before I read the book, I still enjoyed every twist and turn. Tolkien has a delightful voice in the story telling and it makes you really enjoy the adventures with Bilbo Baggins. I laughed, got angry, cheered, and even maybe teared up at many parts of the novel, and now I can't wait to delve into The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Highly recommend!!

    happypug12's book review was featured in Throne of Glass.
    After hearing about how excellently crafted the book Throne of Glass was from a review on DOGOnews, I was instantly intrigued and I decided to read it. When I first began, I got the feeling that it was going to morph into a rip-off of The Hunger Games, but I was dead wrong. In fact, I ended up enjoying it more than any of the other books in The Hunger Games series. Celeana Sardothien is a slave in the salt mines of Endovier, but she wasn't always. Once, she was an assassin. Not just any old assassin, but Adarlan's Assassin, a ruthless killer, feared by all in the land of Erilea. Her torturous, horrible life as a slave is forever changed when she is invited/forced to go through a series of Tests against other scum to become the King's Champion. But all is not as it seems when competitors are mysteriously found dead, murdered grotesquely. She is ordered to root out and destroy the evil-before it destroys her and her only chance at freedom. Throne of Glass was an absolute page-turner, with superb character development, and well-orchestrated romances and friendships, and best of all, villains that are oh-so-despicable. I loved how Throne of Glass shifted in points of view, forging an even deeper and intriguing plot. You'll sympathize with the cold-blooded assassin, understand the haughty prince, and the pity the stone-faced Captain of the guard. I couldn't tear myself from this masterpiece and cannot wait to continue it in the next books. I recommend to all fantasy and adventure lovers who want a good book to curl up to for hours.
