I wouldn’t say I’m in a reading slump so much as I’m tackling long and/or complicated books while I’m completely tired. I don’t have too too many books that I’m currently reading (thank goodness) but I think the ones I’m reading are total goodies!
Here’s what I’m reading:
We Were Liars by e. lockhart – I finished this one last night. It was ALMOST a throw across the room book, but a) it was on my kindle and b) I realized once I got over from my shock that I kind of loved it.
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor – It’s slow… oh so slow. But having just finished Days of Blood and Starlight the other week I’m still going on the high from it and loving this slow build and the emotions and and and… sigh. So good.
Nowhere But Home by Liza Palmer – I’d suggested this one for our book club’s April meeting. But… turned out no one could actually make the meeting (which is good because I’m only like 1/10th into it) so we’re moving it to May. Loving it so far though! I’m getting excited about finding books that are about people my age going through issues I’m facing.
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler – Found this one at my favorite used bookstore and knew I HAD to have it! I’ve been reading it at lunch when I go to the park and am loving it oh so much! Can’t wait to get further into it. I also really love the cover. The different shades of blues in the heart are so pretty to me.
The Girl Who Never Was by Skylar Dorset – I signed up to be part of the Faerie Court street team or something. Basically getting to promote a book I’m excited for!
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – I got this in the mail yesterday from my Spring Book Exchange person! Thank you oh so much! I cannot WAIT to get started!
Question time: I’ve been thinking very hard about doing a video blog for this “feature” but have been hesitant because well… self-conscious reasons. For those of you who do vlogs, any advice you have for getting started or just any advice in general? It would be very appreciated!
Also, what are you reading these days? Have a happy weekend!
