I almost never return a book to the library unread. Maybe once or twice a year. This is one of such cases. The Bronze Horseman has been sitting on my bedside table waiting for me to start reading it for over a month. It’s due to be returned tomorrow and I've already used up the extension period, which means it will go back to the library unread.
It was just something stopping me from starting this book. Firstly, I had less time to read than usually because of Easter preparations. Then, I was a little unusually intimidated by the over-six-hundred-page thick bulk. And on top of it, I felt compelled to reread The Twilight Saga (I’ve been really into it, too, I’ve finished New Moon, Eclipse and I’m past half of Breaking Dawn) and I’m having a blast while at it.
Unfortunately, all that means no Bronze Horseman for the time being. I will try to get at it another time, though, because I really want to read it, it seems such an intriguing book.
