Week in Review (14)

Random Thoughts

This weekend was a busy reading weekend for many people, but I never really got a chance to read at all. It turned out to be a busy weekend, so I am a bit behind on several things. I did finish a few books this week, but I am very close to finishing a couple others. I had big plans to get to them this weekend, but then I was hardly home. I am a little disappointed that it didn't work out. I didn't even get a chance to pay any attention to the readathon!

This week starts a slew of Short Story Monday posts as I review The Best of Charles de Lint for Once Upon a Time V with Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings. I also have a few books I really want to finish! There is Enchanted Glass for a buddy review with Memory and Ana. I have been reading Dreams Underfoot by Charles de Lint for a while and had planned to finish it this weekend, but I still have a few pages left. Then, there is a book about The Lord of the Rings and I am still supposedly reading Troublesome Young Men. I really would like to finish these books before starting anything else. The list of things I really want to start, though, is crazy long!

Challenge News

It was a Once Upon a Time V week. I finished Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce, The Shadow Hunt by Katherine Langrish, and terribly twisted tales edited by Jean Rabe & Martin Greenberg.

Sunday Book Coveting

See? This is why I have to start reading more than three books a week... I want to read all of these and many more!!


  1. The Peach Keeper is another great book. I absolutely adore Sarah Addison Allen. And I've got to admit that the cover of The Dark and Hollow Places has me interested...

    I hope you have a great week!


  2. All of those look wonderful. Particularly the Robin Hobb... Must look up that Patricia Briggs too. :-)

  3. I agree! All those Want To Reads look wonderful.

  4. Just read Jo Walton's Among Others and enjoyed it overall. Had a couple of minor issues, but it was a great reminder of all the books I haven't read yet! The main character talks about books and libraries so much that I couldn't help but like it :)

  5. That sucks your weekend didn't see you getting to do a lot of reading. I can relate. I only finished ONE book. Blah.

    All those books you're coveting look good.

  6. *cj: The Dark and Hollow Places is book 3 in a trilogy. Just so you know. :)

    I am looking forward to the Sarah Addison Allen!

    *Cath: The Patricia Briggs is book 3 in a 4 book series. I am looking forward to some Robin Hobb.

    *Suey: I know! I wish I could read faster!

    *Melwyk: I am looking forward to Among Others when I finally can work it in. :)

    *Amy: I managed to finish a book yesterday at least!

  7. I keep seeing Discovery of Witches on a lot of blogs too and everyone is loving it. I've got that one on my shelf too but you know how it goes. I need to read faster! :)

  8. Lots of good books that you are wanting to read there!

    I can read Peach Keeper this weekend if you want.
