I admit to being a little tired of blogging and being online after the readathon! It was quite a marathon, but I am so happy I participated this time. I enjoyed the community and I feel like I know a lot of people that I never came across before, or who intimidated me with their super-impressive blogs before. So great stuff, participating!
However, now I must be in post-party depression or something as I have no idea what to read next. I keep picking books up and then setting them down, staring at my bookshelves as though the next book should just pick me and I cannot decide! I think I may continue with Rosemary Sutcliff's Arthurian world with Sword at Sunset. But, if I am in an Arthurian mood, maybe I should finish off Mary Stewart's Arthurian saga by reading The Wicked Day. I read the Merlin trilogy some years back and adored it (really, if you like King Arthur and have not read Mary Stewart's amazing trilogy, I cannot recommend it highly enough). Really, the only thing stopping me from reading The Wicked Day is that it's about Mordred (though a very positive portrayal of him, from what I hear). But I feel like I should at least get that series off my back before starting a different Arthur series.
I also thought of reading Josephine Tey's The Daughter of Time, to get into Richard III agian. And then I remembered Kage Baker's In the Garden of Iden on my shelf, too, that a friend recommended to me so long ago.
So basically, I have no idea what I will be reading next! I will see what catches my attention, at least a little, and go from there. I think it will be Arthur because now I'm in an Arthur state of mind. You'll see why when I get around to reviewing The Lantern Bearers. In the next few days, I hope- I don't like to fall behind on my reviewing!
