Tell Me Tuesday #61

TellMeTuesday

Hosted by La La in the Library

This past week was BUSY! I’m still not reading a whole lot, my focus just isn’t there anymore. But I did polish off one book, and start a new one!

Finished

Unfinished Tales

  • Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle Earth by J.R.R Tolkien – Our group finished this one up at the end of the last week! I think I enjoyed this more than The Silmarillion. I originally purchased this book for ONE section, the Istari, and it sat on my shelf for a long time. I finally got to read that section, which was the second to last, and it was totally worth the wait.

 

Currently Reading

the-color-purple

  • The Color Purple by Alice Walker – This is longer than I thought it was, but it’s fantastic. I saw the movie ages ago, but I don’t remember much of it so this has been mostly new to me.
  • Roverandom by J.R.R. Tolkien – We are polishing off the Tales from the Perilous Releam collection by Tolkien. It holds the Adventures of Tom Bombadil which we read months ago. Rover is the story of a dog who finds himself on the receiving end of a wizard’s curse, and the story was created after one of Tolkien’s children lost his toy dog on the beach and it couldn’t be found.

  1. I can’t remember if it was the Book of Unfinished Tales, or The Book of Lost Tales that Goodreads says has two parts (volumes), but the book I have doesn’t have a volume designation. I am trying to figure out how to find out if it is both parts one and two in one book. 😛 The Rover story sounds interesting!

    After I finish Song of Blood and Stone I am going to read the third book in The Color Purple trilogy, Meridian. 👍

    Thanks for TMTing. 💜

    The Istari *nods* that’s mainly why I first bought it too, I was fascinated by the background especially of the other three wizards. All the other lore was just a bonus. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
