The reading week

The question asked every Monday at

This past week I finished books 2 and 3 of the Mortal Instruments trilogy by Cassandra Clare. I'm still reading Soldier in the Mist by Gene Wolf, because I keep putting it down and accidentally starting other books. Also still reading The Matriarch, by Witi Ihimaera, at work, but that's going pretty slowly as well.

Yesterday I accidentally started Smoke & Mirrors by Neil Gaiman; so I'll probably finish that next, if I don't buckle down with Soldier in the Mist.

I'm also trying to break this weird hoodoo, where I don't read my favourite authors. I love Charles de Lint, for example, but don't remember when I last read one of his books. I remember what it was _ Spirits in the Wires _ but I don't remember when. And he's not the only one.

Happy reading week everyone. :)

What a super sweet picture! I love how you said that you accidentally started a book. I totally understand that! Sadly when I do it, I don't stop until the book is done. :( Not good.

Lol _ I have a feeling that's going to happen to me too.
Thanks _ that was during the readathon. Trying to read+toddler ... not a good equation.

I have accidentally read books too, and those are the ones I finish instead of my assigned ones.

Well, accidents happen! I do that a lot myself, accidentally pick up a book to see what's it about and start reading it! Have a great day!!

Soldier in the Mist is a book I've been meaning to read for way too many years. Happy reading week, Maree!
