The Sunday Salon – Weekly/Monthly Wrap-Up

The round up this week. I finished:

The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Magicians & Mrs. Quent by Galen Beckett

The Girl with Glass Feet by Ali Shaw

This month I read:

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

The Kingdom of Ohio by Matthew Flaming

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier

The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Magicians & Mrs. Quent by Galen Beckett

The Girl with Glass Feet by Ali Shaw

Tonight I plan to start The Far Traveler: Voyages of a Viking Woman by Nancy Marie Brown.

I finished The Girl with Glass Feet this morning and spent the next few hours wondering if I liked it or not. It was a sad book and I wasn’t prepared for that although I should have been. A death hangs over the book and I read quickly hoping to escape it but it happened faster than the ending. I still don’t know what to think of it.

The Lord of Rings Read-Along said goodbye to The Fellowship of the Ring this month and I was pleased to find out that I love this book as much as when I first read it. The story is still fresh even after several re-reads. I plan to do a longer post later in the week so I won’t say more here. I’ll be continuing with the Read-Along with The Two Towers in March.

I’m going to make it a short post since I have a few other things planned for today. I wish you all happy reading.

One thought on “The Sunday Salon – Weekly/Monthly Wrap-Up

  1. Huh. The Girl with Glass Feet sounded interesting, but very distant and closed in- once you’ve gathered your thoughts on it, I can’t wait to hear it. And, of course, I’m looking forward to your reflection on The Fellowship of the Ring!
