You know that feeling when you’re craving a book to read that you don’t actually have, so you can’t focus on anything else?
That’s me right now.
The Raven King was released yesterday, and I preordered it, and it isn’t here yet. (I suppose it could conceivably show up later this afternoon, but in all likelihood it will be tomorrow.)
I finished my most recent read on Saturday and had every intention of squeezing in another book for my reading challenges before TRK showed up, but I can’t do it. I pick it up, and I want to read it, and I get ten pages into it, and it’s terrible.
I browsed for a few new free romances on my Kindle, and gave those a try, figuring if I liked one enough to finish it, I’ve still got “Read an ebook” to cross off for a challenge–but no, they couldn’t hold my attention either.
For me, five days without real reading is definitely a slump.
So my plan is read TRK (which will work for the challenges for “Read a YA bestseller”, because we all know it is even before the sales numbers show up), then tackle the two books I have from the library, then dig back into my TBR shelf. I’ve got a plan for that, too–more on that soon, once I’m free from the slump.
It’s a good plan. I think you’ll all like it.
