Taking a Break

I was reading two middle Grade books: Cosmic and The Magnificent 12. Both are very good. The problem was that I got so into listening to The Thief, then I had to read the next two, The Queen of Attolia and The King of Attolia. Now I am finding it hard to get back into the two previous books because I want to be back in Attolia with Eugenides. I did buy the next book in the series, A Conspiracy of Kings, but I am not letting myself read it until I get some of these other ones done!

Just because I took a break from the other books I was reading doesn't mean they are not good. Do you ever find yourself taking a break in the middle of a book?

(oh, and kudos to whoever recommended listening to the audio version of The Wee Free Men, it is awesome)!


  1. I wouldn't say I take a break from a book, but I may start reading another one and be taken over by that one instead (much like what happened to you). I'm not a reader that can read more than one book at a time, so if I really get into one book anything else I was reading goes to the wayside. Most of the time I get back to the first book, but not always.

    I haven't heard of the series you're talking about. I'll have to look into it!

  2. Yah! Sometimes it's not the book, it's me at my current state.
