I tested out my library card the other day, snagging a book called The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma from the science-fiction section and The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer from the children’s room (hey, why not, right?). The latter I had heard of before, especially from my bookstore stint, but I hadn’t heard of The Map of Time.
The sci-fi book is a first in a trilogy, it seems, and boasts both real and imaginary characters in Victorian times. The main character is an investigator, one who travels through time in order to solve and prevent crimes. It’s definitely a different taste than what I’ve read before, but it had piqued my interest!
Of course, I’m also in the middle of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and I still have a giant shopping bag full of new, unread books. Still, the library trip was nice, allowing me to browse and save a couple of bucks on new stories. Perhaps the deadline of the due date will also prompt me to read more books!
What have you been reading lately?
