I feel like blogging even though I don’t want to write a review (or post ones I have already written) and I have no meme or whatever they’re called to participate in on a Thursday. So. You and I, dear Readers of mine Blog, we shall talk.
About what exactly I am not entirely sure of. Okay, I joke. Obviously, being bookish sorts, we shall talk about books. And reading. And cute authors. Oops. Did I say that out loud? I actually meant intelligent authors who write books that supersede the um, physical attraction of oh forget it. I meant what I said initially. Okay?
What are you reading nowadays?
Me, I have many books I’m reading/supposed to be reading/happy to be reading.
First there’s The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Which I have to buy because it’s 621 pages long and the pace at which I’m reading… well, let’s just say there is no hope in hell that I will meet my library due date with a finished book. And the book is really good. The prose is beautiful and while the pace was slow initially, it did pick up and I see why people have rated it so highly.
Then there’s The Curse of the Elroys by Ksenija Yoder Batic. I haven’t read much of this one yet but it does seem promising.
I also started Witchlanders by Lena Coakley. It’s for review so I should have it read before its release date if I’m very lucky. It’s promising so far, more like a high fantasy than a urban fantasy and I tend to prefer the latter. Plus the protagonist is male. Which would usually mean its difficult for me to concentrate but funnily enough, the Protag in this one is entirely relatable.
I’ve also been reading The Hobbit by Tolkien and it’s chugging along merrily. As long as I have it done before the movie comes out, I’ll be happy. And since the movie is coming out December 2012, I have lots of time! :D I love the Tolkien movies, the ones helmed by Peter Jackson because he’s such a great director but I haven’t been able to get through the books because the pace is so slow and the singing drives me nuts. But The Hobbit isn’t too bad.
And finally, I’m reading Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergen. That’s entertaining as well. So… this is what I’m reading.
What are you reading? Tell me because I want to know. Really. Snooping peoples reading list is a guilty pleasure of mine.
