I feel like I start these posts every week with the same message. It’s been a very busy week and I didn’t get much reading done. These words also perfectly described last week. The last couple of days were particularly busy, with very long hours. Besides I think I might have to admit to myself that I might have entered a little reading slump. It has been taking forever to finish books lately, unfortunately, but let’s take a look at what I did manage to read. WWW Wednesday is a bookish meme which is currently hosted by Taking On A World Of Books. Its idea is very simple, answer the three following questions:
I still didn’t progress this week with the Aristophanes Plays, The Golden Compass or Doomsday Book. Most of my focus has been on the Halloween Bingo books. For Halloween Bingo I am reading Carnivalesque for the Creepy Carnivals, The Girl on the Train for Psych, and Binti for Aliens. That last one I am enjoying a lot and I hope I might be able to finish it either today or else tomorrow. I also started The Crying of Lot 49 which I need to finish by Saturday for book club. It is only a short novel, but so far I have not really been enjoying myself. The sentences sort of ramble on for most of a page and are not very coherent. I also started an audiobook I got from Netgalley. I don’t usually listen to adiobooks, but with a little reading slump I am trying out different things to see what might help.
I only read two books last week. The first one was a collection of comics, Just Act Normal. Next, I wanted to read something fast and uncomplicated and I was recommended The Years Shakespeare Ruined My Life. It was indeed such a read. Once more, I hope next week will be better!
Halloween Bingo books. I don’t know yet which one exactly. There have been some of my calls in the last days, so whatever holds my fancy after I finish reading some of my currently reading-shelf.
