What I Do Not Like To See

This is so random but I am reading a book right now, one that I am almost done with and will review shortly, but the main character is really getting on my last nerve and it’s affecting my opinion of the entire book.

Infidelity as a topic is often very readable and most of the time there’s remorse and regret buried in there somewhere but I HATE when you see a character go down that path (blurred lines and all) and somehow we, as readers, are supposed to feel sorry for said character because of circumstances blah blah.

I. Don’t. Like. It.

I am 5% from the end and I am hoping there is some redeeming quality I’ve yet to unearth that will make me understand this character better.

My New Motto

Book Shelf.

I am in the middle of a great book. It’s the same book I was reading before the funeral and I’ve picked it up a few times to enjoy it but I can only read a few pages before my brain moves on to other topics. It’s unfortunate because this book is super good.

So, I am reading. Kind of. Not making much progress but that gap of time/space between books is expanding and making me nervous. Do you ever get nervous when taking too long to finish a book? I have so many great review copies to get to but at the same time I want to give my current book the focus it deserves. That means I am dipping in and out of it. I really don’t like to read this way though.

The read-a-thon is this weekend and I will be at a track meet. Again. Too much going on there to focus on a book but I sure wish I could join everyone this year.

What’s everyone reading? I want to see your stacks. That sounds dirty.
