Wow, so reading slump is causing havoc in my life. I’m starting writing this on the 25th of May, and I am yet to even get half way through a book; however I have started a whole selection of books, so I have hope that the next six days may hold some possibility of finishing a book. Not sure I’ll hold my breath though as I am not very well.So it has now been a few more days since I wrote that introduction, and I have actually had a very successful few days with reading. There is still one day left and I am hoping to add another one to this list but we will see how that goes. Right now, I’ll let you know what I have read up until now, the 30th.
First book I managed to finish was The Captive by Debra Jo Immergut, and I loved it! I had a few issues with the writing and getting a touch confused at time, but overall it was a highly addicting book that had hold of me and pulled me along with it. I could not put this down and actually read it in just 3 days- yes I’m actually back to my normal reading speed!! In the end I gave this four stars. I will have a full review up as part of the blog tour on the 12th of June, which I do believe will be after this.
At last I managed to finish Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire. Not sure why it took me so long for such a good and short book, but I started it going into my reading slump so I’m blaming that. I love this series, and as soon as I have the money or get to the library I will be picking up the next one. They are such fun quick reads, but they truly get you thinking I find. This was a 3.5 or 4 star read for me, I cant quite make my mind up as I love these, but they aren’t anything amazing; but then I think that that’s because they are novellas rather than full novels. Either way, I highly recommend them if you don’t have much time but want a quick fantastical story.
So I didn’t quite manage to finish The Hazel Wood, so that leaves this wrap up at a total of 2 books. This is a definite improvement to previous months and also to what the start of this month looked like. What did you read in May?
