Re: What did you read in JANUARY?

  • Despite getting off to a very slow start this month, I actually didn't do too bad. I got 6 books read, plus, I'm getting very close to finishing a seventh. I'll update later today if I do manage to finish it.

    The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer ****

    The Sandman: Preludes and Nocturnes *****

    The Evolution of Mara Dyer *****

    A Clash of Kings *****

    Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores *****

    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban *****

    and, I started on The Psychopath Test last night, and I'm already over halfway through it. It's so interesting! Hopefully I'll finish it today.

     Good thing I started strong because I haven't finished a book since 1/18.

    After I got my BFP, I don't think I read a book for weeks. I just could not commit... I was exhausted all the time, and just could not concentrate on anything for more than 5 seconds. Don't worry.. you'll get it back.. About two/three months later I was back to my old reading habits. 

    Good to know. Besides my mind racing w/ everything. Reading actually makes me queasy, sounds strange I'm sure, but I hope it will pass and I'll get right back on track. I'm still 2 books ahead of my yearly goal.

    I read a total of 1 book in the 2 months after I got my BFP because it made me even more nauseous than I was.  I only started reading again at the beginning of this month!  I hope it passes faster for you than it did for me (it probably will, they put me on Zofran because I've been so sick)!!

  • I got halfway through The Fiery Cross. It's been slow going for me and I have been sick for a week.

     I have listened to:

    Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

    Wonder by RJ Palacio

    and Looking for Alaska by John Green

    I had far more success with my audiobooks, thankfully.

    Back in August, I started doing a daily Bible reading as well. By the time it's August again, I will have read the Old Testament once and the New Testament twice. That has limited my pleasure reading a bit. I have also been reading some books with my son. Lots of different reading going on. Big Smile
