Bout of Books Readathon

Bout of Books 19th Readathon

I’ve joined the Bout of Books Readathon. I was just going to post about it on Twitter, but it’s a good thing for my blog that the Hosts for the readathon is asking for a direct link rather than just my Instagram or Twitter home pages. So I’m taking this small break from my reading to post about this readathon. I’ve actually been enjoying this more than the other readathons because I’ve actually finished a book so far! I have been in a little reading slump in April because of some tremendous stress that I won’t go into detail about. But now I’m reading again and it’s feeling good.

My furbabby has been snoozing away as I’ve been reading. My reading goals have been to finish those books that I’ve started but never bothered to finish because I’m a mood reader and was in a reading slump. So I’ve now finished rereading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. Next is North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell and Who’s That Girl? by Mhairi McFarlane. And there’s an entire pile of other physical books that I’ve started and never finished, plus the books on my kindle that I forgot to finish. Continue reading “Bout of Books Readathon”

TBR Tuesday

Peanut and Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

Today was a pretty lazy slow day. I did get some reading done, though it’s never enough to the amount of time I wish for. I did find time to read outside today. Reading outside has been a goal this past week and I’ve been really looking forward to this me-time. It’s been a real refreshing thing that has started to uplift my mood, along with the fact that it’s summertime, one of my favorite seasons. Peanut and I highly recommend finding some time to read outside.

So reading. What shall I read?… Well of course thanks to my habit of reading more than one book at a time, I am currently reading 3 booksContinue reading “TBR Tuesday June 28th”

So I think I’m just about out of this reading slump here. So I can finally look forward to these TBR Tuesday posts without feeling like I’m posting the same books each week.

I’ll be posting my May Wrap Up and June Preview posts soon! I did read 3 books this month so I’m really happy about that. But in the meantime, here’s something to ponder…

It’s TBR Tuesday time. Time to recap and see what I’ll be reading next.

This year I have been in a bit of a reading slump. Rereading a some favorite books has helped some. Last month it was Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, this month it was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling. Now I’ve read 75% of The Martian be Andy Weir. It’s been a good read so far and I’m looking forward to watching the movie. Continue reading “TBR Tuesday May 24th”
