Happy Sunday all! I had hoped to get my post up earlier today but I slept in and then we had to go to a birthday party. We just got back though and we have no plans or obligations for the rest of the day, a prospect that my husband is overly excited about!
My week in reading has been abysmal. I thought my slump had passed but oh, was I wrong! Part of the problem was that I was sick Monday. I had to take a day off of work, which ordinarily would leave me with a lot of reading time. In fact, I often secretly wish to be sick enough to call off of work but not too sick to lay about in bed all day reading. Unfortunately, this time I was too sick to do any reading. I felt too sick to even watch TV, so I just laid in bed dozing in and out of sleep. The week didn’t get much better from there.
I was fickle with my reading and nothing could grab my attention. I must have picked up four or five books over the week. I even gave up on The Inheritance of Loss 200 pages in. Hopefully I will pick it up again but, at this point there’s no guarantee. However, I may now be out of my slump. What did the trick, you may ask?
For some reason, I was going to put this one off. Maybe I like to torture myself? But then my husband had to work all day yesterday and I had the entire day to myself, so I figured I should give in and read it. We had plans last night so I had to leave the house with about 50 pages left. We didn’t get home until 1AM and I was pretty tired, but there was no way I was going to sleep without reading the end! All in all, I was very pleased with Mockingjay and I am glad I read it instead of waiting.
So now my quandary is what to read now. Will it compare to Mockingjay?
