home and it being half-term and having no time completely to myself.
I'll feel better next week when we can back to our regular routine.
It's been a pretty slow week in terms of my blogging with only two
reviews up, but I did manage to finish three books this week: Plain
Jayne by my friend Hillary Manton Lodge, Nobody's Girl by Sarra
Manning and Along For the Ride by Sarah Dessen. I think I turn towards
YA for comfort!
Since then, of course, I've been sort of floundering. I've abandoned
Audacity of Hope as the politics were a bit too much for me. I picked
up several other books and didn't get anywhere with them.
I've started Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee by Dee Brown but had to
stop for a break after the first two chapters as it's so intense. I
started Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon last night but when Littlest
went for his nap this afternoon, my book remained upstairs so I did
pick up Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman but was quickly distracted by N and
Oldest playing on the Wii.
All in all, I'm in a pretty big book slump. None of my books are
maintaining my interest, I feel a bit book restless. I'm sure the
fault is all mine but I think I'll just have to ride this one out for
a little while, flitting between books for a few days. I'm going to
start loads of books hoping one will stick but probably will finish
nothing. And that's OK. No pressure, right?
What're you reading today?
