This past week hasn't been the best in many respects, including my reading habits. I've been all over the place, with the pickiness I mentioned a couple of weeks ago being back in full force. A lot has been going on personally too, so that has played a part in my lack of reading also. I just haven't been in the right frame of mind for reading and so that equals out to very little read.
If you read last week's 'It's Monday!' post then you'll know I was hoping to complete More Than This by Patrick Ness... I started the book, ploughed on through for a couple of days, but then my reading came to a halt. I couldn't continue, couldn't fully connect; that's the second time I've had that experience with that particular book. I'm still not giving up on it though, and I hope to return to it in the future. After that, I didn't read for a good couple of days. Returning to my shelves I picked up Disclaimer by Renee Knight... I'm about half way through that one and enjoying it so far, hooked in fact. The trouble is having the time / clear enough mind to sit and read. I'm hoping this new week will be a good turning point.
Hoping to have Disclaimer finished by the end of today, or at the very latest tomorrow, I'll be moving on to the series that is Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I do actually own, and have read, the first book in the series, but as always seems to be the way with me, I haven't got much further than the first book in the series. Whilst at the library near the start of the week I spotted not only the second, but the third book in the series and knew I just had to check them out. I've heard some mixed reviews on the series as a whole, but I recall particularly enjoying the first and being held by the uniqueness of pictures entwined with narrative how they are there, so look forward to seeing how the series progresses. Reading all three books (because my memory just doesn't serve me well and I tend to have to reread when it comes series) in the one week is an ambitious task, and unlikely to happen, but that's how my reading is shaping up of late.
What are you reading this week?
