I celebrated my birthday (next friday, Nov 26) with some friends at the movie theater yesterday, and one of them brought me a book:

The Magician by Michael Scott. (GoodReads, Amazon)

And then, when I started reading it last night, I realized that it was the second book in the series, so I can't start reading it yet. We laughed and laughed about her mistake :).

Happy Reading,
WALKING BUTTERFLY

Happy Birthday!

You know, sometimes it is really hard to know what is the book order of a series. The book doesn't always make it so clear.

Yiota said...

I can't believe that! i did exactly the same mistake with Magician. I started and then i found out it was the 2nd. I remember i had just 2 hours before the stores close for 3 days, and i was running to all the bookstores to found the first one..haha...
anyway i hope you like it:D i did^^

Zakiya LadyWings said...

LOL Yiota! Too bad I didn't think of that! :D

Missie: Yeah, IKR? Sometimes that could help a lot.

Thanks to all of you for commenting!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
