“The Time Will Come” is a weekly feature hosted by Jodie from Books for Company.
Each Thursday, we share a book that might be sitting unread on our shelves for now, but we do intend to get to!
(Thanks go to Jennifer @ It’s Fay, Not Fey! for the graphic!)
I was so excited when I saw Gifts by the legendary Lady Le Guin on the shelves at the store! And just as excited that it was part of a series with really cool cover art!
You can’t go wrong with Ursula Le Guin, so I can’t explain or understand why I haven’t yet read this! I guess every time I pick it up and glance at the first few pages, it feels more dense in terms of world-building than I had anticipated and I’m just not feeling in the mood. One thing is certain: If you pick up a book and force yourself to read it when your mood and desire is not there, the experience will be less than satisfying. So, knowing that a good series like this is waiting to be read, I patiently bide my time.
Any sci-fi/fantasy folks out there who’ve read the Annals of the Western Shore series? I’d love to hear about it!
