I had a really wonderful Day 3 of Bout of Books – Wednesday is my day off from work, so I was able to wake up semi-late and read in bed for awhile. After working out and getting some things done around my apartment, I walked down to the river near where I live and read My Brilliant Friend while enjoying the sunshine. I can’t believe it was 75 degrees out today! Then I did even more reading this evening. I have to say that I am LOVING My Brilliant Friend. I really wish I hadn’t resisted reading it for so long; I was clearly being silly about not reading it and should have looked into it sooner. But at least I’m reading it now and discovering its insanely well-crafted storytelling (and I caved and bought book 2 in the quartet, The Story of a New Name, so that I can jump in once I’ve finished book 1). I am also very gradually savoring A Court of Mist and Fury; I don’t want to finish it too fast and have it be over with, as it’s a perfect guilty pleasure read.

I love reading series’ like that, sometimes I wait until all the books are released just so I can read from book 1 to end of series one after the other, it’s really great reading in order and not having to wait!
I am hoping to get to A court of mist and fury, and as above, I had to re-read a few of the last chapters of ACOTAR to remember where it was at.
By the way, your reading spot sounds absolutely beautiful 🙂
My Bout of Books updates
I loved Oryx and Crake when I read it in college. I’ve been meaning to give it a reread because I’ve forgotten most of it.
Looks like you’re getting a lot of reading done, keep it up!
