  1. Sevilla is really beautiful. I just visited for a day once, but surely I'll come back some time. But as a city to live as a student I think Granada is better suited, so maybe it was nice that it worked that way for you in the end. I've never been out of Europe, so I know little about the U.S. but I hope I have the chance to visit some time in the future. Maybe when I decide to read something from Jane Austen I can start with Emma. But I don't think it's going to be soon. I watched a movie adaptation not long ago and it seemed interesting. Wow, those are very different choices than what we could read as an assigment for school in Spain. I once tried to read The Great Gatsby but it was the same as with Anna Karenina. I would have love for my tachers to let us choos something more on the line of epic fantasy XD
  2. Carole and Tuesday is precisely the last anime I saw. I love it, it's so cute, sweet and uplifting. And I also saw Castlevania. I really like the main characters and their relationship. I only suffer because this last season Adrian is all alone. My wife was so upset about that that she made a fan art. https://illustraterg.tumblr.com/post/613741151242141696/i-just-finished-castlevania-season-3-and-i-just (If you prefer me to stop sending you links, just say so, I wouldn't want to impose) I haven't watch much lego movies, maybe I'll give them a go. Currently we are rewatching Avatar: Legend of Korra (we finished rewatching Legend of Aang just a couple weeks ago).
  3. Wow, nice spanish there! Hahaha. Yo estudié en Córdoba y he visitado Granada varias veces. It's a really nice and beautiful place to study and live n_n Where are you from if you don't mind me asking? I'm sorry your sister and you had to cancel your trip. A lot of people have had problems like that caused by covid-19 (I lost my part-time job and had to cancel several martial arts programs I was going to attend). I hope you can come to Spain in the future. The same that happened to you with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, happened to me with Anna Karenina. I don't even remember why I stopped reading but I never pick it up again. I guess I'll try again someday. I hope the close all the loose ends in the end. Sometimes it's nice when they don't but only if its done in a satisfactory way. I have a friend who is a huge fan of Jane Austen but I have not read anything from her. Shame on me, I guess. Waht are you making your students read currently?
  4. Yes! I found out about that recently, but I read in an interview that he didn't used it for that reason. By the answer he provides it sounds more of a coincidence... "Question 37 What made you decide on Robert Jordan as your pseudonym? Is it Hemingway? — Ishamael No, it wasn't Hemingway. I simply wanted to separate the different kinds of books that I wrote with different names, and I made lists of names with my real initials and picked one name from one list and one from another, and Robert Jordan was one of the names that popped out." https://wot.fandom.com/wiki/Source:SciFi_Channel_Chat_at_Dragon*Con_97,_28_June_1997
  5. I read Dracula and Dr. Jekyll an Mr. Hyde as a teenager, but not Anna Karenina. I enjoyed Dracula a lot but some of my friends in the reading club didn't. I guess it caught all my atention with its dark settings and characters. But maybe I wouldn't enjoy it so much now. I finished WoT before reading anything form Sanderson, but I still recognised some of his style retroactively. I agree with you that he did an amazing job completing WoT. I'm halfway through Dragon Reborn and I think I'll keep re reading WoT ultil the end, but you are inspiring me to take Montecristo sooner than later n_n
  6. Hi! Thanks. I think I'm managing, more or less ^^u Although I still have much to explore and learn. I am from Spain and I just studied a little English in school and then on my own. I was lucky to be able to spend a month in Ireland before college and that helped a lot. But sometimes I notice my english is an incoherent mix between british and american english.
  7. Nice! It certaninly is a really good series. What animes have you been watching lately, if you dont't mind my asking?
  8. She thanks you 😃 That show is awesome. Maybe your daugthers would enjoy the show Dragon Prince if they like She-Ra n_n
  9. I haven't read the Mistborn Trilogy yet. I guess I started reading Sanderson at an odd place after reading Elantris. But I'll get to Mistborn eventually; I'm sure it's totally worth reading. What other Rice's books have you read? I've read just a couple outside Queen of the Damned ones, but they didn't left a lasting impression.
  10. Hahaha, no, it's not. It's a drawing my wife did for me as a present. That's suppose to be me with my protector. She published it in her tumblr, but I don't think you saw it there. It is based in the aesthetics from the She-Ra, Princesses of Power new series. Here you can see the complete image and the story behind: https://illustraterg.tumblr.com/post/190116891288/hi-long-time-no-see-happy-new-year-ive-been
  11. One of my Sanderson-loving friends couldn't finish The Eye of the World because he thougth everything was going sooo slowly. In my reread I have to agree with him if you compare things with Stormlight Archive, for example (both of us had just read Oathbringer). But I think he eventually will come back. Or at least I hope XD Hope your brother can be convinced to start WoT n_n Wow, about Rice's books, I think we are just the opposite. I really liked Interview with the Vampire, but then I read The Vampire Lestat and I liked that even more. And by the second chapter I was totally invested in Lestat's point of view. But I agree with you in the part about Louis not making much sense. I guess that was the idea, everyone's the hero (or at least not the villain) from their own point of view. Also, I'm sure I didn't read book one with all the attention you must have put into it for using it for college. And then I think I just read some of Queen of the Damned chapters before feeling I didn't want to go on. But this was all a long time ago, so I don't remember the details. I was one of this teens that didn't understand leaving a book unread once you had started. But now I'm more selective with my time and I think that's good too. About Montecristo, you are helping me to want to read it sooner than later. My old coppy is jus sitting there, gathering dust on the shelve. Maybe after The Dragon Reborn.
  12. Thanks! A lot of us, non-english speakers, here, I guess XD
  13. Hahaha, well maybe my english will not be such a problem as my crappy computer and me not quite knowing how forums work ^_^u
  14. Thanks! Wow, it's been ages since I read Queen of the Damned. I think I just read the first two and a half books and then also got tired ^^u And Count of Monte Cristo is in my to do list for some time now. How are you liking it? I actually started rereading WoT because I've been years trying for this friend os mine to read them. And then she said she would if we did it together. But in the end she never even started and here I am, just finished book two.
