Wednesday Reading Meme (One Day Late)

What have you just finished reading?

Lots of stuff! Rosemary Sutcliff's The Shining Company and Sword Song, vol. 3 of the manga series A Certain Scientific Railgun, and the aforementioned book I had to re-read as an assignment. I think I'm giving up on Railgun: it's just not working for me. I will write it up at some point and discuss that. This is one of the few series I've just had to drop.

What are you currently reading?

Nothing but little filler things: fanfiction, catalogs, bits of the second Bleach character book (mainly so I can sleuth the kanji in the characters' names with my basic kanji dictionary). That's because I'm processing the things I just read – always happens when I read a lot of things one after the other.

What do you think you'll read next?

I just got the third Gunslinger Girl manga omnibus (comprising vols. 7-8 of the original tankoubon): that will probably be next.

Did you like The Shining Company? It was one of my favorites.

I enjoyed it a lot. I did think Luned basically gets lost from the narrative, though. Of course, so does Conn, once he's settled in with the master smith. This really is Prosper's story.

I'll have to write it up properly at some point. It's one of several Sutcliff novels that were released after I graduated college and got out of the habit of browsing in libraries, and I just never really encountered them until people were taking about them on LJ/DW.
