Search Terms

should i let my 13 year old read eye of the world
I don’t see why not. There’s some violence, obviously (killing of troll-like monsters, mostly), but it’s not particularly graphic or out of the ordinary for fantasy novels. There are some scary/creepy parts, but that’s entirely dependent on how easily scared they are. No sex in the first one, either (and minimal-to-no on-screen sex in the entire series.) Basically, if they can handle the length, there’s nothing in the content that wouldn’t be appropriate.

firefly bok
No, chickens “bok”. Fireflies are pretty quiet, except for maybe a *blink*ing noise.

reading recommended
Yes, yes it is.

is peter and the shadow thieves a graph
No, it’s a book. This is a graph. (Actually, that was a sentence. And a link. But definitely not a pipe.)

threatened by capricorn
Goats are nasty buggers, it’s true, but somehow I feel like Leo or Scorpio would be a lot more threatening.

what are the names of the kids that went
…up a hill? Jack and Jill. …into the witch’s cottage? Hansel and Gretel. …over the river and through the woods? As far as I know, they’ve remained anonymous.

eye of the world series book 13 review
I wish! Talk to me in about a year, once it’s been finished and published.

ancient way of giving love letters
I’m sure the archaeologists were thrilled to discover the shoebox full of cuneiform love tablets in a teenager’s bedroom closet in ancient Mesopotamian ruins. [….okay, something about the phrase “love tablets” just sounds wrong.]

tally youngblood compared to princess diana
Both of them really liked riding hoverboards. It’s totally true.

    Fun wrap-up! Very clever responses to the search terms, I always enjoy reading these …

    How sweet, the “threatened by capricorn” part I think refers to Inkheart :)

    Thank you for the link! :)

      Kay – I’m sure it did, but it’s more fun to assume it doesn’t. :)

    You really have to watch out for us Capricorns . . . we can be scary!

    Love your search items, I look forward to them.

    *giggles* Your search terms always crack me up. And yeah, “love tablets” sounds terrible!

  5. December 3, 2009 9:30 am

    I love seeing odd search terms because I never seem to get any.

  6. December 3, 2009 9:54 am

    I love your search terms. I am sorry to hear you don’t bok, however!

    Interesting search terms you got there. Sorry about the really direct question on inappropriateness on the 12th book in the wheel of time series?, I just really wish that you would tell what age group books are in. For example if I tell one of my younger relatives about this site and they find this book that looks interesting and read it but its really gory and I end up being traced as the source of all trouble. (you write really good book reviews)Thanks!!!

      fyrebyrd – I try to make it a point NOT to comment on the appropriateness of books, since what I think is appropriate for a certain age group is not going to be what other people think is appropriate, and I think that’s one of those things that if parents are concerned about, they need to monitor for themselves.

    Great Post! This is a fantastic how you write out the search terms. I laughed and you have caused me to take a look at some of mine.

    Wonder if the “threatened by Capricorn” searcher meant Inkheart? Great search terms last month!
