The Mind's Eye. Oliver Sacks by Oliver W Sacks
The Mind's Eye. Oliver Sacks

Not my favorite Dr. Sack's book, but still worth reading. The eyes are an amazing evolutionary achievement, and one I certainly didn't think about much before reading this book. The Mind's Eye will show you how incredible your eyes are and how capable your body is of adapting when something happens to them. Great book to read and mull over before bed. Check it out!

A strong stomach is recommended for this disgustingly fascinating book. Learn all sorts of things you never knew you wanted to know! Like, was South Park right? If you shove food up your butt will you really poop out your mouth? And why should hooping only ever refer to hula hoops? This humorously informative book is the adults version of "The Magic School Bus: Inside the Human Body". You'll never think about eating the same way again!

Star Wars: Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil: A Novel of the Old Republic (Star Wars) by Drew Karpyshyn

Darth Bane's body is starting to fail, aka, he's gettin' old! Is Zannah ready to take over the role as Master? Read to find out! Not as exciting as the first two books but as I got to the point where the plot started to really come together I couldn't put it down! Not too sure how I feel about the ending... It wasn't a very satisfying ending as it leaves a lot open. Regardless, I still felt that overall it was a fun book to read and a very addictive series! Check it out! Remember, if we want to defeat the Sith, we must learn all we can about their history. So do your part!

Tehanu: Book Four of Earthsea (Earthsea #04) by Ursula K. Le Guin
Tehanu: Book Four of Earthsea (Earthsea #04)

I don't understand why everyone says this book is amazing. It's not. The whole story is tied to a little girl you meet in the beginning. She has power and must be taught. At the end of the book, she still hasn't been taught anything. There was no point to this story. How can this be the end of the series, when they introduced a new story line and then never resolve it? Absolutely terrible. Her strong, main, magical characters are reduced to lives of boring unmagical mediocrity, which isn't very interesting to read about. Do not read.

Star Wars Darth Bane Rule of Two (Star Wars) by Drew Karpyshyn

Very exciting!! However, this second book of the Darth Bane trilogy is quite disheartening. The Sith were almost totally destroyed! Yet now Bane and his new apprentice begin to weave their web of deceit as they slowly take root in the galaxy. They grow stronger with each passing day and the Jedi are still oblivious! How will the Jedi discover them? How can the Jedi beat them? If you want to find you you'll have to read!
