[Reading Status] I think I'm gonna regret prioritizing this crap...

The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel: The Alchemyst by Michael Scott (226 of 375)

Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (166 of 486)
Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan (148 of 322)

Leviathan by Scott Westerfield
Blood Red Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell by Sussana Clark

I saw the hardbound version of the third installment of the Nicholas Flamel series on sale, so I placed books 2 and 3 on reservation (which will expire tomorrow) and bought the first book. I had been interested in the book for a long time already, but I thought of prioritizing the other books I like before it. The sale of the third book might've been the sign that I shold start the series already, so I thought of finishing the first book before I decide whether to buy its sequels or not.

And most probably I won't be buying those two books. It's not really that bad, but so far it's very disappointing. I don't get what my friend saw in this (she said it was good and is very impatient to read the second book..... but I think we'll be having different opinions on it. Ironically I think I was the one who introduced the series to her) but since we usually have similar tastes, I'll be giving this a chance.
