Yall…my reading for this month was trash! I blame Bird Box by Josh Malerman. I was aggravated with how slow this book moved. When I finally got to the end I was like:
So disappointing! I listened to it on audiobook to and from work. I mentioned in my last wrap up that I wasn’t that interested in it, so I should’ve DNF’d it. Nooo, I had to powder through, I just had to know what was going on. By the time I got 80% through the book, I was fast-forwarding through chapters. I didn’t care about any of the characters because they were all boring; I only wanted to know what the hell was going on and why. I wrote a mini-review on Goodreads if you’re interested. Ugh. After I finished that, I wasn’t in the mood to read anything. I was reading I’m Judging You by Luvvie Ajayi, but I put that down. It’s not a bad book, I just didn’t feel like reading it.
I’m listening to Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup. My husband has been wanting to watch the movie, but I asked him to wait until I read the book. It was finally on audiobook at the library so I picked it up. I’m about 60% into it and I’m enjoying it. I interested to see how some of the scenes will be played out in the movie.
For the month of April I’m hoping to do better. I plan to read at least 4 books for the month. I gotta find a book that’ll pull me out of the funk that Bird Box put me in. My plan is to go to my TBR pile and pick up whatever calls out to me. Wish me luck.
Oh, there is a Library Book Sale at the end of April. I’m hoping to stumble on some goodies! $20 is my limit…we’ll see about that.
