I hate false reading starts. You know, that’s when you start reading a book, but for some reason — could be something about the book itself, or as it seems to mostly be in my case, it’s outside influences — you lose your connection with it? My recent one was Shards of Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold. I haven’t read any of the Vorkosigan sequence, which people tell me are great. So I started with the chronologically first one in the series (i.e. not the first one written). Turns out I didn’t get very far and now I have little interest in going back to that one. Further exploration tells me that the books actually featuring Miles Vorkosigan are the ones to start with. Shards of Honor is a good story, but best enjoyed if you’ve read other books in the series.
Up above you can see part of my (most current) to-read stack. If all goes well, I will be reading my next book from this pile.
So…what are you reading?
