Read My Book Next! No, Read Mine!

The Beyonders by Brandon MullI finished my book a few days ago and tried to start a new one.  I started reading The Beyonders by Brandon Mull, and, while I don’t mind reading kids’ books, I just wasn’t in the mood and couldn’t get into it.

A Memory Of Light by Jordan and Sanderson

I don’t know what I’m in the mood for.   I preordered A Memory Of Light by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson and was super excited when I received it a few weeks ago.  Now I look at it, and I don’t even want to bother with it yet.  You should see the size of this thing.  Hardback and 909 pages.  Okay, so it’s not as bad as King’s Under The Dome at 1074 pages but still.

Shattered Hourglass by J.L. Bourne

I haven’t been in the mood for any zombie books lately either.  I’ve had the newest J.L. Bourne (Day By Day Armageddon: Shattered Hourglass) for quite some time sitting on my bookshelf staring at me.  It’s the third in a series, and I read the first two books years ago, so I would have to reread them.  Bleh.  I don’t feel like it.

The Giver by Lois Lowry

Then my daughter wants me to read her book series that she just finished:  The Giver Quartet by Lois Lowry.  She got the fourth, and last, book in the series for Christmas and loved it.

Fearless By Eric Blehm

My husband has been bugging me to read his book that I got him for Christmas: Fearless by Eric Blehm.

My son is the only one who isn’t pestering me to read something, and he’s usually the one creating a huge pile of books for me to read.

Plus, I have a bookshelf full of other books of my own that I have yet to read.

The Way Of Kings by Brandon SandersonThe Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

What I really want to read is the second book in the Stormlight Archives series by Brandon Sanderson or the third book in the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss.  Amazing books.  Unfortunately, those books are not even up for preorder on Amazon.

Monster Blood Tattoo by D.M. Cornish

I don’t even think (though I still hold out hope) that there will ever be a fourth Monster Blood Tattoo.

So what should I read next?

  1. The Giver! Oh my goodness, one of my favorite books of all time. Simple, but that’s part of the magic! I vote for that…then you can read the rest of the series and convince me that I need to quit slacking and read the others, too!

    1. Well, you just made my daughter super happy: “Yes! Tara knows what she’s talking about!”

      Thanks! I’ll let you know how the others are. 🙂
