Week in Review (12)

Random Thoughts

I haven't been worrying about finishing anything this week. I have been moody lately, so I am just picking away at books slowly. This week I will concentrate on finishing a few of them so they are not all in progress for April. I have been switching back and forth between non-fiction books. For the Once Upon a Time challenge I am reading The Return of the Shadow by J.R.R. Tolkien. It shows the progression of The Fellowship of the Ring. Then, I am still reading Troublesome Young Men by Lynne Olson. I am almost done, though. I just stopped for a bit. Then, I am reading two short story collections that will work for the Once Upon a Time challenge: Dreams Underfoot by Charles de Lint and terribly twisted tales, which is an anthology with lots of different authors in it. I also have novels on the go, but I have been sticking to the others mostly this week.

Challenge News

I signed up for the Once Upon a Time V challenge this week. I read book 2 in the Horatio Lyle series for it. Fun series!
