Woo y’all! It’s three days into the year and I’ve already read two books! How’s that for bouncing back??? *knocks wood* I don’t want to jinx myself.
Late New Years Day I finished Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie. Geez louise y’all, I love that book so much! It was my second time reading it and it was even lovelier this time around. Now I have to get my hands on Luka and the Fire of Life, since it’s the sequel. I have always hoped there would be more stories set in this amazing world Rushdie created. *Edit* My mistake, this was my third time reading it. That’s what is so great about having a reading blog – it reminds me when I’ve read things. Duh.
Then yesterday I zipped through a short story fairy tale collection by Kate Bernheimer called Horse, Flower, Bird: Stories. It was… interesting. All the stories had hallmarks of fairy tales. There was lots of abandonment, torture, imprisonment, misery and the like, yet very little saving. I don’t expect white knights in shining armor, but… well I get ahead of myself since I hope to review this one later this week.
Yesterday, after the heaviness of Horse, Flower, Bird, I started the newest book in Rick Riordan’s Olympus series, The Lost Hero and wow, does it start with a bang. This is going to be a fun read. I’m also still listening to The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. I didn’t listen much last week as I had double ear infections and just didn’t really want earphones in my ears. Fun times! I started it again this morning and had little trouble picking up the story again. I just enjoy Wilkie Collins so much!
So, how was your reading week? Read anything good?
