It’s been a while since I joined in with the Book Journey meme, “It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?” Maybe it’s time for an update!
I’ve been reading lots of fantasy for Once Upon a Time, which has been enormously fun. And I can’t believe we’re almost a month in already! I have so many more books to read…
Right now I’m midway through A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett, because I’ve been meaning for months to read more of the Tiffany Aching books, which feel a bit more like a proper series than the rest of the delightfully mixed up Discworld books.
Coming up next I have a big one to tackle: Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien. I read The Hobbit years ago (and reread it recently), but I’ve never read the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I was bound and determined to make the attempt this year, and now’s the time!
I am probably way over-focusing here…I reread The Hobbit and watched the movie of Fellowship in preparation, then made sure I cleared through my stack of library books before turning to Tolkien. So I’ve been counting down to Fellowship for about six books now. Wish me luck!
I have new ones coming in from the library as well, for once I get to the other side of Middle Earth. I’m planning on Heir to Sevenwaters, the next in the series by Juliet Marillier, and The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley, which I read so long ago I barely remember it.
As you can see, we’re continuing the fantasy adventures…
