I’m moving into a new phase of reading, so it’s the perfect time for another What Are You Reading post? And by “new phase,” I mean “not centered around Lord of the Rings!” I finished reading Return of the King, so after two months of all my other books orbiting Tolkien’s big challenges, I’m back to more open territory.
My immediate plans are to continue on with a number of series I’m midway through. That means Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card (Ender series), The Garden Intrigue by Lauren Willig (Pink Carnation series), Seer of Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier (Sevenwaters series) and Gryphon in Glory by Andre Norton (…I don’t think the series has a name). That’s a lot of series reading, but I’m close to the end on all of these, and eager to tie things up!
No picture of a book stack this time, because most of these books are still on their way from the library. No matter–in the meantime, I’m reading Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Gift of Wings by Mary Rubio, an enormous biography of my favorite author. It’s crazy-detailed, and is giving me all the cultural context and alternate-sides-to-the-story that Montgomery’s journals (which are lovely) don’t include.
Once I finish off a few more series, then I’m thinking I’ll get to the very long To Be Read list that has rather got away from me in the last several months…
What are you reading this week?
