Barefoot on the Wind - Zoë Marriott Barefoot on the Wind - Zoë Marriott

Set in a mythical place that is a reflection of Japan the way much of regular fantasy reflects Europe, this is an interesting twist on the Beauty and the Beast story that takes some of the ideas of the story and twists them subtly.

Everyone in Hana's remote village knows that going too far into the forest is bad, very bad, won't come back bad. Hana's family has lost her brother to this and her father blames her. A lot of the time the people who vanish seem to wander away in the middle of the night and are never seen again. When Hana's father disappears she decides to user her talent to talk to the trees to help her search for the monster they keep whispering to her about. This will change everything.

I loved it, great story and compelling characters that really spoke to me. It kept me from sleep last night.

Barefoot on the Wind - Zoë Marriott Barefoot on the Wind - Zoë Marriott

Zoe Marriott has never written a book I didn't like, started this last night, this may have been a bad decision.  Now I have to wait for a year for her next one.

A Wind in the Door, Time Quintet #2 by Madeleine L'Engle
A Wind in the Door - Madeleine L'Engle

It took awhile for me to warm to this book, but in the end I liked it better than 'A Wrinkle in Time'. Why? I liked that L'Engle was writing more in the open about science, and about faith, and the hocus-pocus that comes about when you put the two together. I mean that in the best way possible. It worked for the story, and for Meg, who really shines here.


Meg is a girl who was portrayed as troubled and a little at odds with the world outside of her family. Only by comparison with Charles Wallace does she seem able to get along at all. This book being about Charles Wallace's struggle to adapt was fitting.


I was on the fence about reading more of these - I never did as a kid - but now I'm confidant that I'll keep going.

Offshore Wind Power Market By Characteristics, Analysis, Opportunities And Forecast To 2025


This report presents the worldwide Offshore Wind Power market size (value, production and consumption), splits the breakdown (data status 2013-2018 and forecast to 2025), by manufacturers, region, type and application. This study also analyzes the market status, market share, growth rate, future trends, market drivers, opportunities and challenges, risks and entry barriers, sales channels, distributors and Porter's Five Forces Analysis.



Offshore Wind Power is the generation of electricity from wind by constructing wind farms in water bodies. It is estimated to be one of the cheapest and cleanest forms of electricity generation. Offshore wind turbines are larger in size and have greater wind speed compared with onshore wind turbines. Offshore wind power offers various advantages compared with onshore wind power.


With regards to the world economy of 2015, recovery of China and other developing countries economy is expected to be more powerful, the European economy will continue to be stuck in slump, and growth of the Japanese economy and other emerging economies will be decelerated. Thus the world economy as a whole will show mild growth in 2015. Overall, the global economy is stable. For the environment protection intension, wind energy, especially the Offshore Wind Power had attracted more attention in the past years. Therefore, the demand of Offshore Wind Power is strong, which has good development prospect.

According to GWEC and EWEA reported, for the Global Offshore Wind Power industry, global installation is about 1.7GW in 2014. As a result, Offshore Wind Power industry provides lots of opportunities. Based on the fact that many countries have introduced new policies for the industry, for example, China has formulated the grid-connected electricity price in 2014 for the market. EU has entered the market for a long time, as a result, the installation of every year and cumulative installation before 2014 is higher than other parts of the world. EU takes up about 80% of global installation.

The Offshore Wind Power market was valued at xx Million US$ in 2017 and is projected to reach xx Million US$ by 2025, at a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period. In this study, 2017 has been considered as the base year and 2018 to 2025 as the forecast period to estimate the market size for Offshore Wind Power.

The Twelve Kingdoms: Sea of Wind - Fuyumi Ono,小野 不由美,Akihiro Yamada,山田 章博,Elye J. Alexander,Alexander O. Smith

I think this might be my most re-read book on Booklikes. I have 5 reading dates on this edition (the paperback, which has fewer errors than the hardcover and reads a bit more smoothly) and 1 on another (the hardcover, which I only keep around in case something happens to my paperback edition).


Every time I read it, I get something a little different out of it. It's been one of my comfort reads for a while, even as it makes me a little sad. On its own, it's a lovely story about a boy with low self-confidence (and who I'd argue was emotionally abused) who finally finds a place for himself in another world, as well as people who love and support him. Unfortunately, in the series as a whole it's just a brief happy period in his life before everything goes completely to hell.


I recall hearing news about a new book coming out in this series a few years ago, but I don't know if it was really released. Also, considering the fact that this series spans several centuries and kingdoms, there's no guarantee that that particular book would resolve the unfinished and messy story of Tai, Taiki, and Taiki's king. And, in any case, it'd still need to be licensed and translated into English before I could read it. ::sigh:: It's hard sometimes, loving an unfinished series written in a language you can't read.


As far as Halloween Bingo goes, there are multiple squares this one would work for, but one of them has already been called: Diverse Voices (it's a book by a Japanese author, and the description for the square doesn't specify a particular genre, as far as I know). According to my personal rules, that means I must use this book for that square.
