I can't believe how much I'm reading this month. I've been crocheting and sewing all month and I'm still finding time to read. My SAD has been a lot less noticeable lately due to doing yoga, which helps a lot because I don't fall asleep reading all the time now. Heir to Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier: Yay, I finished the series this year! I enjoyed this more than Child of the Prophecy and only a little less than Daughter of the Forest and Son of the Shadows. I'm looking forward to Seer of Sevenwaters, plus the book after that (I'm hoping that the 6th book will be about Maeve). I've really enjoyed Marillier's female protagonists in this series. And these books are the perfect example of the type of romantic fantasy I love.

Unicorn and Dragon
by Lynn Abbey: Technically, this was a re-read, but it was more like reading a new-to-me book because I only remembered one scene and two characters. I never got to read the sequel, Conquest, so I wanted to re-read this before reading the second book. I liked Wildecent, Stephen, and Ygurna. I believe when I first read the book, I liked Alison a lot, but this time, I found her pretty annoying. Obviously, I'm enjoying the Celtic fantasy I've read this year (see above), so my favorite elements of Unicorn and Dragon dealt with the ancient magics.

The Neverending Story
by Michael Ende: Well, this was a surprise. I thought I'd love this book because I loved the movie as a tween and was hoping to watch it again. But the movie is only based on the first half of the book, which I also enjoyed. But then, bam, Bastian ends up in Fantastica and becomes a brat. Everything I liked about him from the first half was erased and he just wasn't Bastian anymore. Plus the story got really boring once Bastian went to Fantastica. Also, he and Atreyu are said to be instant friends, but they didn't really act like friends. I wish I had stopped reading at the midway point because the second half ruined the entire book for me.
