I know I haven't been around here much lately... but I'm still around behind the scenes! Please don't desert my blog!! =) My reading slowed waaaay down for a while there... I'm talking it took me two weeks to read one, ONE, book that I actually really enjoyed, lol! I think I was just really stressing out about some things and even though reading is my stress relief, at times it becomes too stressful for me to concentrate and focus on reading. I've been trying to keep up with all the blogs I read as well, but I know my commenting hasn't been where it should be. I'll try to improve! It's funny because things have actually slowed down slightly in the past couple weeks and now is the time I can't seem to focus on reading much, whereas while a lot of the crazy stuff was going on I managed fairly well. Strange!
Anywho, I do have a review scheduled this week. It was actually supposed to be last week but I had to ask for an extension. =( But it is for a book that is fantastic so far and it's also a fantastic author whose books I have loved so far! I'm also hoping to start my New Yorker thing next Friday... managed to not get around to that yet... oops!! I would start it this Friday but I already have a review I promised for that day as well, so at least there will be two reviews for your reading pleasure this week. =)
Let's see what else... I got my copy of Mockingjay and did start it but need to finish some other books before I return to it. I pre-ordered it which I rarely do and then it didn't arrive until Thursday! (it came out Tuesday). So I did save money but good thing I wasn't planning on reading it THE DAY it came out or I would have been very upset! I also bought a book that I have been dying to read How to be an American Housewife... I read the first chapter in the bookstore and I am so hooked. Can't wait to finish reading that and review it here!
Have I missed anything new or big lately while I've been not as tuned in to the world of books and/or blogging???
