Sheila at Book Journey does a fun meme every Monday, inviting people to share their reading plans for the coming week. I’ve increasingly been thinking of my reading in that way, as I stack up library books each weekend for the coming week, so I thought it was about time I jumped in on this!
My book reviews have been slimmer than usual this past week because of NaNoWriMo, but my reading has continued unabated. I’m currently reading Susan Kay’s Legacy, because I am hopelessly, completely, madly in love with Susan Kay’s Phantom. I don’t know why it’s taken me eight years to pick up her only other novel!
Legacy is a 600-page behemoth that will probably take me most of the week. I have a new-to-me Discworld book lined up for the Thanksgiving weekend, though–I’m finally going to read Mort, the first book in the Death series. Despite what that summary sounds like, I expect it to be a rollicking good time.
I’ve planned out the next two weeks because the library is going to be closed for nearly a week over Thanksgiving. I find this immensely alarming (understandable, of course, but no library for five days? Eek!) and had to lay in a good stock ahead of time. After Mort I plan on Roughing It by Mark Twain, because I promised myself I’d read a new Twain book this year, and we’re getting down to the end!
And then I have Lady Friday by Garth Nix, as part of my ongoing quest to finish his Keys to the Kingdom series by the end of the year.
So those are my plans, for roughly the next two weeks. What are you reading?
