I Need a Good Book to Read!!!January 13, 2009 at 9:28 am | Posted in Reading | 6 Comments
It’s a new year, 2009, almost halfway through January already and I have only finished ONE book – and I didn’t even like it very much! I am in a reading slump. I have tried to get into at least 5 books since finishing the one, and I didn’t like any of them. HELP!
The book I did manage to finish this month is Nice to Come Home To by Rebecca Flowers. At about 1/3 of the way into it, I almost put it down. It was okay but nothing special. But then it started to interest me more so I kept going. But then again at about the 2/3 point, it went back to being just okay, but I wasn’t going to put it down with only 1/3 left. I rated it a 3/5.
I just started The Widow’s War by Sally Gunning. I’m on Chapter 5 – I can’t tell yet if I like this book or not. I will give it a little more time.
In my TBR stack next to my bed (all library books of course!) I have:
Two for the Dough by Stephanie Evanovich – I read the first book in the series last month – felt it was good enough to continue with the series for now but this book is not calling out to me to be read right now.
The Doctor’s Wife by Elizabeth Brundage
Broken Angel by Sigmund Brouwer
Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond by Tiki Barber – saw this one on the new books shelf and just decided to grab it
I’m headed to the library this morning (in the cold, brrrr!) to pick up these 2 books that are in from on hold:
Prints Charming by Rebecca Seitz
Time of My Life byAllison Winn Scotch
And this one is in transit, not sure if it will be at the library yet when I get there this morning:
You Had Me at Goodbye by Tracey Bateman – I loved her “Claire” series but wasn’t as crazy about the first book in this one, the Drama Queen Series (Catch a Rising Star) – I liked it enough to read the whole thing, but it wasn’t as good as the Claire books.
I also have 2 non-fiction books in from on hold that I will be picking up: Two at a Time Socks by Melissa Morgan-Oakes and Lick the Sugar Habit by Nancy Appleton.
I read 88 books last year and I was hoping to top that total this year, but at the rate I’m going to so far, it’s not going to happen! I hate not having a great book in progress!!!!
