Bibliomancy for Beginners Nostalgia Junkie: “The Soldiers of Halla” by DJ MacHale + Wrap Up

WE’VE DONE IT. WE’VE MADE IT. TEN BOOKS LATER AND HALLA’S FATE IS ABOUT TO BE DECIDED FOR GOOD.

Ahem. Let me be responsible for a second.

Welcome back all to this special Bibliomancy for Beginners series, Nostalgia Junkie! This ten part special goes book by book through one the favorite childhood series of Head Bibliomancer Michaela from The Pied Piper Calls. Us, with special guest Casey from The Drunk Librarian, have gone week by week through all ten books.

This week we’re talking about the tenth and final book, The Soldiers of Halla. I finally, finally, get to explode with all the rage that I’ve pent up since I finished this series as a kid, Casey talks one last time about Bobby-Jesus and Michaela tries valiantly to defend this series as the best of childhood things.

It’s been a while ride, and we thank you for being a part of it. While we don’t have any plans for a new series yet, be assured that we are talking about it! For now, though, one last time – HOBEY HO!

Update: What in the World is Going On Here?

I know, I know, it’s the second Wednesday in a row without a Worth It Wednesdays post. I haven’t run out of worthwhile reads.

Though I’ve been doing my best to keep up with Nostalgia Junkie, the return to school has basically wiped out everything else. For now, anyways.

I’m about to start up a couple of projects very near and dear to my heart, and hopefully you guys will be able to follow them here. One is my thesis. The reading list for this has a list on my Goodreads, and I’m really excited about it. If I get my stuff together, hopefully I’ll find a fun way to incorporate all the books I’m reading for that into this blog.

The second is my senior project for my Creative Writing major. This is my first novel attempt in years–damn you, college!–and it promises to be a wild ride. Again, if I can find a witty way to incorporate that here, I plan to.

Last but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST is a project hopefully coming to you soon from me and my Bibliomancer gang. It has several facets. One is that me and Michaela from The Pied Piper Calls want to start doing some shorter videos to entertain y’all. Second is that me, Michaela, Taylor and maybe even Casey from The Drunk Librarian are thinking of doing one book a month while school is in session. Except sitting around the SAME TABLE and imbibing alcohol. Because we’re 21 and we can do that now.

All this amounts to some more blogging that will hopefully be going on! I know, I’ve promised that before. But this time I’ve got teachers and friends all looking at me to git’r’done so maybe–just maybe–I’ll actually do it. Fingers crossed!
