I’m very surprised I managed to get through all of these books in July, especially considering the length of some of them!
Everything is chaos here at the moment – I start a new job in a new city on 14 August and I’m trying to prepare for that, as well as cleaning out and packing my possessions in order to move. It’s not going well. Many angry tears have been shed and many unintelligible noises have been made.
My new job has a library literally right next door though, so I can’t complain 🙂
Why yes, there is definitely a fantasy theme to my July reading. I read The Eye of the World, the first book in the Wheel of Time series, because Charlotte told me how amazing it was and then I had to get the next book immediately.
At the same time, she was reading my favourite fantasy series, The Belgariad by David Eddings, and then I had a sudden urge to reread those as well… so I ended up alternating between series. I’ve currently finished neither series (understandably considering The Wheel of Time books are long and there are fourteen of them) but I’m persevering!
I finally finished Wilkie Collins: A Life of Sensation, which I was reading as part of Alice’s read-a-long. I enjoyed learning more about him (and his multiple STDs), but I didn’t also need to learn more about everybody he passed in the street.
