Time for another post for What Are You Reading, hosted by Book Journey. I have been reading…a lot of Lord of the Rings.
On my last WAYR post, I was about to attempt The Fellowship of the Ring. I am happy to report I finished that one, and didn’t find it nearly as difficult to get through as I feared. I didn’t madly love it–but it was a good time. Posted my review here. I read a few other books, but pretty quickly went on to The Two Towers. Have to keep the momentum up, now that I’ve begun!
I have a few books lined up for after The Two Towers. I’m thinking Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier next, then The Master of Heathcrest Hall by Galen Beckett to finish the Mrs. Quent trilogy, and then The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley, since I just reread The Blue Sword, the companion book (review here). And then–on to Return of the King!
So I’m actually reading a fair bit that isn’t Lord of the Rings…but Tolkien looms rather large. All three books have been these big icons in my reading plans, and all the other books have been selected and viewed as fitting in around Lord of the Rings.
Can you tell that I sort of make a big deal out of these books? But after having them loom at me for ten years, it is a big deal to finally read them! 🙂
What are you reading this week?
