Hello there!

White Sky Project is a blog about books mostly (usually fantasy and sci-fi, but sometimes thrillers, gothic and contemporary fiction, too). It’s also a blog about freelance writing, yoga, tarot, graphic tees (because I love the art!), movies, TV shows, and more. Welcome! I’m grateful you’re here. :) – xoxo, Leah

Book Watch

I’m currently reading the Night Watch series by Russian writer Sergei Lukyanenko, first published in 1998. I first got interested in the series when I saw bits of the Night Watch movie on cable. I read somewhere that the movie has some sort of cult following. All I remember from the movie is a guy with goggles in a subway train. Yeah, descriptive. Anyway, finally picked up the book and I’m hooked.

Books Books

I finally finished reading Wizard’s First Rule yesterday. It took me a while to finish because of the story’s pace, but at least the ending was interesting. It’s the first book in a series so I guess the author had to lay out a bit of groundwork for the next books. Critics compare the series to Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings (LOTR) and both are similar in the sense that they are about magic and power and fantasy worlds. But I think that’s where the similarity ends. A major difference is that the Sword of Truth series has more empowered female characters in it. In LOTR, the powerful female characters like Arwen and Galadriel weren’t given as much significance as the male characters.
