I always dread the last weekend of the month. There's always a strange feeling of pressure that comes over me. A need to finish up any books I'm reading that fit into my theme of the month. You see, the themes are a blessing and a curse. A blessing because they help me be decisive about getting my TBR pile cut down to size. A curse because I always manage to find a book I want to read NOW and it never fits into the theme. Come to think of it I think this might be why I had a hard time working on anything that required me to be in a library when I was a kid. Too many good bookses waiting for me to pass by and bam! Distraction!
I really do love doing my themes though. March's faery theme has been a lot of fun. I managed to wittle down my faery reading pile a lot. In fact, I loved the theme so much I will probably plan another faery month for 2011.
In the meantime I am going to try and get Radiant Shadows finished this weekend. I'm a bad monkey and requested it in Amazon's Vine program even though I still hadn't read the 2nd and 3rd books in the series. So I've been a little lost about some things. An' if I'm feeling a little honest I don't really like Ani much. I find her annoying for some weird reason. Maybe she's too unhuman?
I'm going to work on the Mammoth Book of Irish Romance a little too. I had intended to finish it before month's end but my enthusiasm died after Saint Paddy's. Sad huh?
While we're on the subject really quick... are there other nationalities you really enjoy in fiction? A lot of romance readers I've known like Scottish ones, that whole highlander thing. As part Scot myself I was born with an appreciation for men in kilts but I haven't read any highlander romances myself.
Well ladies and gents... this blogger is off to get some other work done. I hope your weekend is relaxing or productive or whatever you need it to be. :) Drop by and tell me what you're reading this weekend, I love hearing about what others are enjoying (or not lol). -- Rhi
