Are you? I’ve not done a readathon in ages (and I can’t exactly say the TBRtakedown was a success), but now, in the middle of all the writing I’m SUPPOSED to be doing before I go away, I’ve decided I’m going to take one day out to READ. Not that I haven’t been reading all this time, because I have been. Even if it’s just a couple hours here and there, I manage it. But I’ve been so disconnected with books lately, what with me […]

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s task is to list Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough/In A While. There are a number of books I’ve read over the years that I just don’t talk about because, well, I just don’t know.

I started a couple but couldn’t get into them. I read a hundred pages of Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson but I just…couldn’t continue. Not that it’s bad, but it was feeling a bit…tedious. I wasn’t into it. And then I worried what else to read because I know part of […]
