I have been reading The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell for several days. I’m the type of reader that it’s unusual if it takes me longer than three days to read a book. The last Harry Potter, I restricted myself to how much of the book that I read each day so that it would last me longer and I still read it in three days. I’m generally a fast reader. It’s not a good thing or a bad thing, it just is. The fact that I’ve been at The Bone Clocks for longer than three days suggests that either I’m in a reading slump or I’m not enjoying this novel. I never want to admit to a reading slump so I’m going with option B. It’s not that this is a bad book, it’s just not what I expected. At any rate, I plan on finishing it either tonight or at the very latest, by tomorrow night.
I’m also in the middle of reading The Spider and the Stone by Glen Graney. I received an eBook copy for review and I really need to get on that. I hate taking too long to get a review done. Not to mention, so far, it’s a really good book.
This week, I plan on starting a new book. Yes, I read several at a time. I have so many books on my TBR that I’m having a hard time picking my next read. I have 71 books on my TBR list/pile/shelf. That is 71 books that I physically own and have not read. I know that’s not as many as some, but it’s still kinda ridiculous. Ugh! Seriously. I know that I want to read something light and fast because it will really help me jump over this slump. Not that I’m having a reading slump or anything. No. Not at all. If you have any interest in helping me pick my next read, you can check out my to-read shelf on Goodreads (just don’t pick ones that are marked as “need-to-buy”) I’d really love some suggestions.
