Fic Of The Week - Week Three

It's Monday again already! Doesn't time fly?

So far I'm managing to keep to my reading schedule, so it's time to pick my Week Three Fic. Slightly more of a challenge this time, because although there are only six chapters (in eight parts) they are longer chapters. This time I've chosen a fic that most people will probably have already read, as it was posted around Christmas:

Jack And The Beanstalk, by iced_champagne (why won't the LJ user tab work?) Part One of which can be found here:


I didn't have time to read it when it was first posted, so I'm really looking forward to it now!


You. Will. Love. It.
I will. I AM! I'm three chapters in, but I have to stop for tonight, though I DON'T WANNA!!!!

I've got the rest of the week to read it, though I'm hoping to finish it in a couple more days, just because it's like one of those books you can't put down...

Got to get up earlier than usual tomorrow, so I can't stay up as late as usual tonight, I really need to get to bed before 2am - preferably by midnight, so no more reading tonight =(
I do not look forward to going back to work...because there is less time for reading fic! lol
I can't work because of health issues, but there is STILL not enough time for fic reading, so you have my sympathy!

I read as much as I can though, because some days it's all that keeps me sane!
I constantly troll the jackxianto community looking for fic, and make myself reading lists. I have a long one, at the moment, because there's some ff.net stuff on their too, and it's multi-chapter.

I also have 10+ WIP fics I read.
I think I must be reading at least that many WiPs at the moment, and my To Read list (and I'm not joking here) has over a thousand fics on it - one-shots, 2-parters, series... That's why I started my little fic reading challenge, in an effort to whittle the list of series down a bit. I try to read any new one-shots that catch my interest each day, plus trying to fit in as many older ones as I can as well as keeping up with the WiPs, but the completed series kept getting left, so I though if I could just read one a week, that's 52 in a year... There are just so many things I want to read, some of them from way back in 2006 even. I'm having to stick to shorter series though because some are REALLY long and I wouldn't be able to read them in a week. Nothing longer than 20 chapters, and even then, only if the chapters aren't massively long. I don't think I could manage more than 3 chapters a day and still fit in everything else I have to do (or read, lol!)
