Don’t Fuck With My Reading
I don’t do well with reading with others. It’s why I can’t do book clubs. I signed my bestie up for six months of book of the month club as part of her Christmas present. I finished the book we both picked in a day. It will take her at least a couple of weeks. This is fine, but for the fact she wants me to wait on her to read the next selection, and that’s kind of asking a lot. I’ve been highly anticipating reading this one for a while now (The Writing Retreat by Julia Bartz). She’s about to learn that bestie don’t play that. Lol. I’m very serious about my reading. And I’m def a mood reader. So if I’m feeling something then I go with it. Otherwise, I find myself in a reading slump.
In other reading news, I finished Mothered by Zoje Stage last night, and it was really good. Even though I knew early on how it would play out, I still loved the journey. I was able to get it for free through Amazon First Reads. I don’t know if it’s still available, but if it is then I def recommend picking it up.
Also – for the first time ever – my team is in first place in Reading Rivalry. Woot!! I hate the theme this month (super hero shit), but I’m still participating; just not getting as many bonus points as I’d like.
The 2022 Reading Recap
My favorite reads of the year:
Plus this series:
And I think this year was the biggest year yet:
Books: This Weekend
Started and finished these two:
Just started this one tonight:
I’ve stopped updating about individual books. I’m not entirely sure why. It just sort of happened. Anyway – I still want to keep a record here, and I’ve finished two books in the last 24 hours, so it’s update time!
Recent reads/reading challenge progress:
I’m in the Roxane Gay book club, and the September pick was a beautiful, but disturbing, book of poetry. I highly recommend it if poetry is your jam too. Trigger warning for sexual abuse.
And…onto the next one! The first chapter has me hooked!!
This Tuesday is the release of The Last House on Needless Street, which I’ve been drooling over for ages. I’m so very excited!! I pre-ordered so it should automatically download to my kindle on midnight on Tuesday. Squee!!! Might have to stay up late.
Gotta wait until mid-Oct for Nothing But Blackened Teeth. Gah. So ready for that one too, but I do love the book anticipation. I love spooky book season!!
Okay – off to enjoy. 😘
