Thus far this year I have read 11 new books and 7 of those books received 2 stars. 1 received 1 star. It is not a very promising beginning. What makes it even more annoying is that all but one of these books came from my to-read list! My list is failing me!
To remedy this, I picked up a book from the library that I remember reading once before and enjoying…Sorcery & Cecelia by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer. Would you believe it is not nearly as enjoyable the second time through?! Also, I think I’ve changed my mind on which hero I like best. This is quite distressing. I knew I should have re-re-re-re-read Dealing With Dragons (by the same author) instead!
Actually, though, I think the real moral of the story is that I’ve been reading too much Young Adult fiction. I went to the library and collected a nice stack from both the children’s section and the adult’s. I’m hoping my ratings go up.
