It was a very Outlander-filled weekend for me. First, the advanced airing of the Pilot episode, Sassenach, on the Starz Play app. On my way to my dentist appointment, I spotted the huge billboard promoting the show. You can bet I squee’d my little heart out.
Then finishing Dragonfly in Amber. I loved it. Not as much as I did the first book but loved it nonetheless. I don’t know if I’ll ever put up a review for those novels. I have a hard time “reviewing” books that I call my “favorites” and this series is definitely making that list right now.
After going to the dentist, my brother and I went to The Last Bookstore in Downtown LA. I wasn’t planning on buying anything. I love going to TLB but I seldom buy anything because while “The Labyrinth” has tons of books, it’s not the ones I usually read. Dollar books are great but the books that I do actually like to get are usually between $3 to $10. Still a bit cheaper than full price but it’s not $1. XD
But I found one book that I just couldn’t resist picking up…
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
•Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
I’ve been reading Dragonfly in Amber for months. I’ve only finished it Friday night with a bittersweet smile on my face. It was sweet but oh so sad at the same time. Every page makes me fall in love with Jamie Fraser. It wasn’t as easy to read as Outlander but I was still in that “book hangover” mode when I came across Voyager for $8 at The Last Bookstore.
There was a copy for $3 in mass market paperback form. But since all of my Diana Gabaldon books (with the exception of Fathers and Daughters) have been in the trade paperback size, I went for this one. It’s a little bit worse for wear, more than I prefer but hey, $8 with a 15% off? This went home with me.
I already started on another book right after finishing Dragonfly in Amber but like I said, I was still in that Outlander mood, with the TV show and everything. I might as well continue the journey, right?
I’m not going to lie. This book is slightly spoiled to me. I know some of the bigger things that is going to happen and I’ve read parts of those. I’m looking forward to reading them again. And I heard from many Outlander fans that this book is their favorite. Well, Outlander will always be my favorite but we’ll see. 🙂
