Total pages read: 443

Total # of books for the year: 77.  Now that I’ve finished Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, I can’t wait until the next book is out!  I need to know more about what happened with Brianna and Roger.  From my understanding, it’s going to be at least another year until the next book, and now I kind of wish I had waited to read this one.  However, I’m mostly glad I didn’t because I probably would’ve forgotten many of the important plot points and would have spent a lot of time looking things up in the Outlandish Companion.

I decided to put The House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne back on the shelf for now.  I don’t know when I’ll pick it back up, but it wasn’t grabbing my attention at all.  I kept getting distracted by the other books I’ve been reading.
