Week in Review (23)

Random Thoughts

This is not technically week 23, but I skipped some time in June. I was doing so well, too, but things just got away from me and I wasn't reading quite as much as I would hope to be reading. In a way I took a bit of a break, though, and things are going much better. I am excited about the wonderful books I have to read, I have been blogging, and I have actually been visiting blogs and commenting on them. It makes me happy! I got so happy that I lost my mind and did my first video blog! I am still not sure exactly what I was thinking with that. I keep thinking I might do another one, but we will have to see how that goes.

I have also been finding that I am moody with my reading lately, so I am reading more than one book at a time. This happens from time to time and it just adds some variety to the regular routine. One day I will simply find myself back at reading one book at a time. At the moment, though, I am trying to keep it so my reading doesn't get too crazy! There are so many books I am excited about and want to read! Hopefully this trend continues. I have resumed using the library after being a bit quiet with it lately.

Nothing This Week...

Nothing this week...


  1. So love A Game of Thrones. I need to finish the rest as his newest is soon to be (already been?) released.

    I downloaded 13 Little Blue Envelopes when it was offered for free on Free Book Fridays from Barnes and seems a fun, light read, but I've only read the first few pages. I need to improve my appreciation for YA books.

  2. **Bellezza: I used to avoid YA books... Now I read WAY too many!

  3. You had a good week! I basically stick to one book, because whenever I try to read more than one I find that I stick to the more interesting book and abandon the other until it's done.

  4. **bermudaonion: Yes, when that happens it will mean that I am back to reading one book at a time...

  5. I just started reading Game of Thrones over the weekend. I'm only on chapter 3 or 4 but I am enjoying it so far. As for reading more than one book at a time, that is normal operating procedure for me. Go ahead, go as crazy as you want to! ;)

  6. I've been a little moody with my reading lately too. I've been having a hard time deciding what to read, so sort of skim lots of different things. I think the mood will kick soon though.

  7. **Stefanie: I really enjoyed Game of Thrones. I hope you do, too!

    **Kim: Reading a bunch at a time is working really well so far. I hope it continues. There is a lot I want to read!
