It's Monday

Your meme is hosted by Sheila here:

I missed last week because I forgot to put the post up. I had it written early and efficiently and then I forgot. Oop.

Anyway. I finished Prisoner of Azkaban yesterday for Sheila’s readalong, so I’m going to dig into Bag of Bones over Christmas for Trish’s readalong. Festive, no?

I also have Hogfather by Mr Sir Terry Pratchett to read, and it’s out of order for my Discworld read all of the books, but it’s Christmas, so that might showup as well.

The week before,  I read Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein - it’s a sort of sequel to Code Name Verity and is just as heartbreaking in its own way.

I also read The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami. It’s not a very long book at all - really a very well illustrated short story - but it’s chilling and odd and heartbreaking.

I was picking at Throne of Glass on iBooks but I sensed the presence of a love triangle looming, and some of the plot points were puzzling, so it’s gone on to the metaphorical perilous shelf for now.

Instead, at lunchtime, I’ve picked up The Miseducation of Cameron Post, which is so far, so good.

What are you reading?

Looks like some fun reading!
I feel like Prisoner of Azkaban begins to mark the transition from the more childlike Harry Potter to the more adult Harry Potter... The more adult really kicking off with Goblet of Fire. Once Peter Petigrew is discovered and he goes off to find Lord Voldemort, you just get a sense of foreboding.
Just some of my crazy thoughts. :)

Lois: I agree. The first two books are very much adventure stories whereas from Azkaba JK Rowling really started to get into the whole mythology of it.
