Okay, nothing is going right this morning.
WordPress was down. Now the Sunday Salon badge is NOT working. But you guys know what it looks like.
Nothing is going right in the reading department either, unfortunately. I was definitely digging Her Fearful Symmetry and then… I left my book at work. I forgot to get it again on Friday and now I have spent the whole weekend without it. But I am seriously loving it, so I can’t wait to get back to it on Monday.
So instead, I started reading Fire Study. Now please, step in here and say, “But Lu! You never posted a review of Magic Study! Why are you holding out on us like that?”
Because I never read it. I thought Fire Study was the second book in the series, but it is not. It is the third. The whole time I was reading it I kept thinking, “Wow! That’s a weird decision to just start the book after so much time has passed. Why would Snyder decide to do that.” Um, unfortunately it didn’t click until 100 pages into the book. Now I don’t even want to continue reading the series. I’m so bummed out. Dear publishers: PLEASE make it clear the order of a series. Nothing is worse than reading books out of order.
I did read the graphic novel The Color of Water today and I liked it, but not as much as The Color of Earth. It definitely suffered from second book syndrome. It really just felt like a connector between The Color of Earth and The Color of Heaven. I’m looking forward to reading the third and final book in the series. Fortunately I read them in order.
I hope your reading goes a bit smoother than mine did. Happy Sunday and Happy August 1st!
