Good morning, everyone! I hope that your weekend is starting off wonderfully. For me, it’s my time of the week to choose two new books to read.
Book in a Month: The Fool-Proof System to Writing a Novel in 30 Days was a quick read, and it was quite informative. I will be implementing some of the exercises that Victoria Schmidt used in the book in my next novel writing attempt. I still have a few more pages of Brother of the Dragon to finish reading, but I will have it done by the end of today’s reading session. I read the first book in this series a little over a month ago, and though I loved that one, this one hasn’t been quite as enjoyable for me. I would go into why I am not enjoying this one, but I can’t pinpoint exactly why it isn’t sitting well with me. I may come back to this book in a later post if I can figure out why.
This week, I am continuing my Dragonlance quest with two more books from the epic saga. Brother in Arms is the second book of the Raistlin Chronicles, and it was co-written by Margaret Weis and Don Perrin. I read the first book years ago, so I’m hoping that I will remember enough of it that I can continue the story with this one. I will go back and re-read the first one if I get lost. I will also be reading Brothers Majere from the Preludes series, Book 3. This one was written by Kevin Stein. As I love Dragonlance and Krynn, I am really looking forward to my reading this week.
In other news, I may be merging this post in with my weekly update. I’m finding that most of the time, I am not finished with my weekly allotment of books by the time I have to write this post for Saturday morning, and this post also tends to be a bit on the short side. Sometime in the near future, I may be changing up the blog schedule to merge this page with my Sunday Weekly Update post, and I will use Saturday for something new. I haven’t figured out what that “new” thing will be, so my schedule will remain the same until I figure out what that will be.
I hope that everyone has a great weekend, and if you are having a rainy day like me, remember to read.
