1. How many books you’ve read last month? Are you happy with the amount you read?
I’ve been stuck on some books (still am!) that are simply not working out for me. To remedy this fatal condition I’ve been reading The Bane Chronicles chapters daily. I’m still missing the last one and the extra story that comes in this collection. Aside that I’ve read only one whole book. Month has been busy with many TV series and games and for that reason my reading has suffered…
2. What made it hard or not enjoyable to read?
Jane Austen is killing me slowly. While I’m reading Sense and Sensibilities I often feel like I would have more fun staring at the wall. Fake characters and pretend well mannered ones are annoying me to no end. I keep trying to read it but every other page something makes me cringe. And then I think to myself: I’ve read many historical romance drama books that were fun to read, why is this one turning out so bad for me?
3.How did the books you were reading last month fit in your reading plans if you had any?
I’m so tilted in my reading lately that I can’t focus on any reading plan. Most I can to is keep up with my RL book club assignments. 😦
4. Any updates on the series you are reading or are you starting any new series?
I haven’t made any progress with book series I am interested in and haven’t started any new ones either. I think my book series mojo has left me…
Final thoughts on September reading:
I would love to find last two stories from Bane Chronicles so I can make a full review on them. Hoping that now that September back to school madness is over my job will leave me with more reading time available. I’m trying to get a reading fix with some new historical romance book or good book series. I am aware that pushing trough this dry spell will require more determination.
