torachan: (Default)
1. I got two chapters of manga posted today, which was a nice surprise (just happened to get both back from the typesetters at the same time).

2. Day off tomorrow! This past week has been one ridiculously hectic day after another, so I'm glad to have a day to rest.

3. I got a cutie Molly here.

What are you currently reading?
Made a little progress on The History of Forgetting. Still did not start Hollow City. I'm thinking maybe I should read something else instead, since I seem to not be interested in actually starting that up.

What did you recently finish reading?
I finished A Wrinkle in Time today. Definitely file this under things I wish I'd left back in vaguely-remembered nostalgia land. :-/

As a kid, things like the heavy-handed religious themes and sexism went over my head. However, those things, along with the fact that the book is just not very well written, made it really hard to enjoy as an adult. And then there's the ending, Read more... ) I'm pretty sure all the other books have separate plots, so it's not something that is resolved in a future book. Instead it just ends abruptly and unsatisfyingly.

Anyway, I am still looking forward to seeing the movie, and this is one of the few times I hope that a movie is really different from the book. But I will definitely not be reading any of the sequels, and I honestly wish I hadn't reread this.

What do you think you'll read next?
Hopefully some more of Billy Bat. I have been going to bed late and been too tired to read in bed lately, so I haven't read anything on my phone or ipad (that's probably the main reason I haven't started Hollow City, either, so I really should try to get in bed earlier!).
