Every week I write in my Bullet Journal, blog something... And most weeks this is the only post that actually happens. I am proud of myself that this post means that I have blogged at least 20 times so far this year. That is better than 0, right? But, I would like to blog more... I just can't seem to find my mojo. I have posts started and saved as drafts, but just can't seem to finish them. I guess it is a work in progress. In the meantime, I write my one weekly post that was my official goal for this year and I manage to visit blogs. That will have to work for now!
This week was a quieter reading week because my main read was A Gathering of Shadows and it was over 500 pages! I finished it this morning, but I cut off my weeks on Saturday so you will have to wait until next weekend to find out what I thought! I also had major issues with audio this week. I am listening to The Dream Thieves on a different app than I normally use. The app keeps crashing and slowing down in speed. Plus, I just don't find the volume that great on my phone compared to my iPod. (My iPod is 'old' and won't update to the newer operating systems, so now new apps won't download. I am so torn. It works fine, but I likely need to get a new one... I hate that!) So, I bought a paper copy and think I am going to DNF the audio for now. It is not the narrator AT ALL. I just have high hopes for this book and the technical issues are ruining it. I was pretty tempted to reactivate Audible and get the audios through there, but I promised myself I would work through my backlist first. I am not sure if buying the books in paperback really was a better plan than getting Audible back. In both cases I spend money... lol
Graphic Novel Year
Wonder Woman - Volume 1: Blood
Wonder Woman - Vol 1 ~ I liked this first volume of the series, but haven't had a chance to read on because of other things happening this week. I have to admit I have heard of Wonder Woman, but I have never actually read a book about her before. This explains where she comes from and sets her up for some adventures. I am looking forward to the next volume. Recommended!
Rebel in the Sands ~ I blamed A Gathering of Shadows for my slow reading week, but considering how short this was in comparison... This book took forever it seemed. I had read a lot of really good books and this book didn't knock my socks off in the beginning. I am happy to report, though, that it got way better as it went and I ended up enjoying it. It just wasn't as amazing as other books I have read lately. I think the series has a lot of potential, though, and look forward to the next book. Recommended!
