Day 2: Read a book in a new genre
Okay, guys, I know I’m already a day behind here, but our power went out yesterday afternoon and was off for almost 24 hours, so I feel I have a justifiable reason for being late. I had something else planned for yesterday, but with no power there just wasn’t much happening around here other than lighting candles and laying around wishing the air conditioning worked. I wasn’t planning on posting about the new book until I’d actually read it, but I started it yesterday so I’ll probably just do a little update when I finish it.
I decided to pick a fantasy novel because I’ve always turned my nose up at that kind of book for some reason. I have no real reason to snub this particular genre, either. Just pure snobbishness, I guess.
Since I know absolutely nothing about what’s what I turned to good old Google for recommendations. I found a list of the top recommended fantasy novels and picked the book that was ranked #1.
Strangely, it was shelved in the sci-fi section at the library, so I’m not really sure what category it truly falls under. I’m pretty unfamiliar with both genres, though, so I’m probably safe either way. Fingers crossed that this is something I can get through this month. I’ll update with my thoughts later.
And I’ll (hopefully) be back with my Day 3 topic later tonight. If not, I’ll catch up for sure tomorrow.
Any fantasy readers out there? What would you suggest for a newbie to that genre?
