Stacking the Shelves

To everyone in the U.S., happy Memorial Day 3-day weekend! YAY! More time to read!

I’m really curious about An Easy Death. It looks like Charlaine Harris is starting a new series. I loved Sookie and the beginning, but it really, really dragged at the end. I found Midnight to be kind of middling, so my curiosity bump itches about this one.

I’ve also been reading a lot of Harry Potter fanfic recently. I’ve discovered that I find Dumbledore-bashing to be terribly cathartic, but I’m not sure why. I think it feeds into the reason I liked Fantastic Beasts as much as I did – it’s good to see the adults stepping up to the plate and not expecting children to win their war for them. As much as I loved Harry Potter, that is one thing about the series as a whole that does not wear well. At least for moi.

  1. Yes! When I was young, I may not have had a problem with HP and other series (Mythos Academy *cough*) where kids had to save the world while the grownups twiddle their thumbs, but it infuriates me now. Adult up, you losers.

    BTW, some really good books this week. My wish list just got longer.

  2. I really need to read the All Souls Trilogy! I’m interested in the new Harris series as well. Happy reading!
