Also, I finished The Magicians the other day. I’m really not sure how I feel about it. It was interesting, but I didn’t love it. I was into it, and happy to be reading it, but it took some turns I wasn’t expecting (which is usually a good thing) and pulled too much from other books (Narnia in particular), which I wasn’t crazy about, mostly because it forces me to look at them in a completely different way. Which, again, is usually a good thing, but I’m not so sure. So I don’t know if I liked it.
I started The Story of Edgar Sawtelle this weekend. I like it, but I’m not making time to read it. I keep putting it down to play with the dogs. (Again again, usually a good thing. And I agree in this case.) Anyway, it’s taking me longer to get into it, but I like it, and I’ll get there.
