Hosted by La La in the Library
I’ve had a lot going on these past few weeks and I haven’t read much or really even taken time to look at the site much either. Hopefully, I can get back on track this week, even if it’s a little late.
- Captain Phasma (Graphic Novel) – I got this one for Christmas from my brother and I had hopes it would add even more to the character that was so under utilized in the movies. It kind of does, but not a lot and it doesn’t feel important to the storyline over. It does add some insight to her frame of mind though.
- Beren and Luthien by J.R.R. Tolkien – This was meant to be the last in my #lotrchapteraday reading with the group on Litsy, but a few of us have decided to solider on! This was really good. It’s the same story you find in The Silmarillion, but with more depth. It’s an oddly beautiful tale, and Christopher Tolkien included some of the full Lay excerpts from when his father wrote part of the story in verse.
- Herding Cats by Sarah Anderson – This a ‘Read Now’ on Netgalley and I’ve been curious about her books for a little while now I decided to give it a shot. It’s pretty good. It’ of course goes over her love of animals, but it touches on a few other topics as well and is really relatable. I might have to borrow the others from the library at some point.
- Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle-Earth by J.R.R Tolkien – A few of us have decided to continue our #lotrchapteraday journey and conquer the Unfinished Tales. This one included Children of Hurin as well, so I’m undecided if I’m going to read that section of skip and if I do read it, do I count it as reading the book Children of Hurin twice on Goodreads?
- Aftermath: Life Debt by Chuck Wendig – I hated the first book. There is just no nice way to say that. I thought it was poorly written and had an incredibly difficult time reading it…so my boyfriend and I are tackling this one with audio. I want to continue reading the Star Wars novels and this lackluster series has been a HUGE roadblock for me. So far it’s about as enjoyable as the first one, but I’m not very far in so there is time for it to get better.
