Hello Friends! Guess what…I’m still reading the same books as last week. Except one different one. I finished one book and moved on to another. So…Let’s get too it.

The Bitches of Everafter by Barbra Annino

23589086

Now…I love any kind of fairy tale re-telling. I just love them. I love seeing my favorites in a new light. So far this book has been pretty hilarious. All the princesses have done something bad and are having to complete community service. My only problem so far with this book is that it is supposedly part of a trilogy, but there is only one book. This book was released in 2014 and I actually almost stopped reading it for that fact. I have a feeling this book will end with a ton of questions and we will never get the answers. But it’s still entertaining so I will continue to read it.

I’m at the end of this book and it’s so good. I don’t know why I ever go into a Stephen King novel afraid I will dislike it…because I am always pleased with the story. My only complaint with this book is that I only listen to it when I am driving and I just want to listen to it until the end. I pace myself with audio books so they last the whole month. But I can’t wait to see what happens! I have been battling myself to keep my fingers from typing into goggle to find out how this book ends.

Seriously…the magic is still alive.

All other books may be put on hold this week so that I can finish this book. I really wanted to finish it before I saw the movie and the movie releases this Friday. Of course, I may wait until next week to see it so that the crowd dies down. I’m not comfortable in crowds. So far this book has been interesting, but I have yet to read anything about the peculiar children. It’s been all about Jacob and his search to learn more about his grandfather.

I am going to be honest with you. I am so close to just putting this book away. It just can not hold my interest and I’m kind of just bored with it. I think it has to do with the fact that there are so many questions floating around the story and it is taking so long to get any answers as to what is going on. Maybe I will just skim read what is left just to get to an end to it. I don’t know.

That is what I am reading this week. My hope is to get at least three of these books done this week, but we will see what my schedule has in store for me. With me being back in school, it’s hard to make more time for reading.

Hello Friends!

Miss me? I had a bit of a re-think. Actually, it was more of a comment that someone made and I decided to step away from my blog for a little bit. I will tell you more about it in another blog.

Let’s move on to why you are here today. What am I reading?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

For my birthday my brother got me the entire Harry Potter Series that comes in the spiffy little suitcase looking box. So, I decided it was time to re-read the entire series and I am so glad I started! I forgot how amazingly fantastic these books were. The movies are great, but the books are so much more magical than the movies could ever be.

I have been putting this off for so long. Now that the movie comes out at the end of this month I decided that I needed to read the book before the movie came out. I am not very far in it and I hope to finish the book in time to see the movie. But, as you will see, I have a lot of books going at once so…who knows when I will actually finish a book.

I have been reading this book for over a month now…It’s interesting, but it just hasn’t been able to hold my attention for long. I don’t know what it is. Some parts are a little boring, but not boring enough for me to abandon the book completely. I will finish this book and hopefully I will finish it this month!

How to Hang a Witch by Andriana Mather

27405351

I started reading this at work one day. I haven’t been reading at work, but I was bored and didn’t want to play games. So…I opened my Kindle app on my phone (I left my kindle home that day) and started reading this book. OMG! If I were to allow myself to just sit and read this book, I believe it would have been finished in a day. To be honest, I should probably let myself binge read this book. It has been so good this far. It’s just enough mystery and romance to keep me on the edge of my seat and my eyes flying across the page (even if it’s an electronic page.)

End of Watch by Stephen King

This is my audio book for this month. I haven’t wanted to listen to any heavy books the past few months, but this month I realized I could not put this book off any longer because…Stephen King! Also, so far I have loved the other two books in this trilogy and I was so excited to see how it all ends. I will tell you right now, this book has been a roller coaster of emotions! It’s exhilarating and I sometimes can’t bring myself to cut it off and get things done…like getting out of my car and going into work.

 

Am I reading a lot of books at once?? Yes, of course I am. But you know what? That is what works for me. I have tried reading one book at a time. But my reading is just like everything else in my mind, I have a ton of stuff going on at once and reading one book at a time is just too boring for me. I think that is where my reading slump came from. I was trying to power through books, but I would get bored reading the same story and I would just put it away and go to sleep. Now, when I get bored with one story, I pick up another book and continue on with that story. It works for me.

There is one thing I have learned in the book community. We all do things differently. Some of us read slower than others and trying to keep up with your favorite book bloggers or booktubers will just put you in the slumps. So take a little advice from me…reading is just like life…you do you and I will do me.

And what are your thoughts on reading more than one book at a time? Do you read more than one at a time or is it just not for you?

Hello Friends!

This is horrible…I am still reading the ONE book from last week. I just haven’t been able to read much. I get so tired at night and end up passing out after a few pages. I hate that my reading has slowed down so much compared to the beginning of the year.

So the book I am reading is Curio by Evangeline Denmark

I’m also now reading The Bad beginning by Lemony Snicket

78411

For my birthday my mom bought me the entire series of A Series of Unfortunate Events. I was so excited to get it. My brother bought me a box set of Harry Potter so…I want to re-read those as well, but I decided to start with Lemony Snicket’s books first.

So this is what I am reading at the moment. There are so many books I have started and abandoned recently. Hopefully I can finish one of these soon…I really need a book to finish…

Hello Friends!

How long has it been since I have done one of these post? I can’t recall. There is a reason behind it all though. Simple…I have been in a reading slump…

*Dun dun duuuuunnnnn*

I want to read, but then I start reading and I no longer want to read. What is this madness??! I am still in a reading slump. I am trying to force my way through the books, but I just can’t seem to do it. And they are super interesting stories that I want to read…but sitting down and actually reading is so hard!

So I have set myself a goal to make sure I read every day. I had planned on 50 pages a day, but I think for now I will drop that down to just 10 pages a day. Just to make sure I am reading something, but not forcing too much so I can get out of this slump.

Any tips for getting out of a reading slump??

I am only reading one book right now.

The cover is so pretty and the story is pretty good so far. If I could just make myself read.

Since today is the last day of my vacation, I have a TON of stuff to do because I put it all off until the last minute. Ugh, I am such a procrastinator. I have to fix that.

Have you read Curio? What did you think of it?
