This is a combination for both WWW Wednesdays by Sam at Taking on A World of Words and Lipssy’s This Week in Book.
What I’ve Read – July Books
I felt kind of disappointed at how many books I’ve read so far this month – until I realized I was still doing about 1 per day. So, there’s that. Want a mini yay/meh/nay pre-review? Here you go, in order of books from top to bottom.
Yay. Yay. Yay. Yay. Yay. Meh. Nay. Yay. Meh. Nay. Yay.
Looks like it’s been a pretty good reading month so far, right? Then why do I feel so ‘meh’ overall about what I’ve read??
What I’m Reading – July Books
Except for The Archived, I’m really struggling with these books. They’re not bad – any of them – I just can’t muster up any interest in them. So authors, if you’re reading this and wondering why I don’t have your book read yet – this is why. It’s not your book, it’s me, and it’s not fair to the books if I push through this right now and end up just feeling negative about the book when that might not be what’s true. You know?
What’s up next – July and August Books
Now, to be fair, I’ve dabbled in almost all of these books, but haven’t made any appreciable progress, so I haven’t counted them on my What I’m Currently reading. I just feel like I’m in a ridiculous slump right now. Nothing is igniting any bookworm passion in me.
So, what are you guys and gals reading? Is there a book you’ve read recently that you absolutely can’t help but gush over? Leave me a link to the review and I’ll check it out. Maybe it’ll kick-start my bookwormy heart. I need something to poke me in the butt to get my interest rekindled. This is seriously driving me nuts.
A lot of those look really good! 🙂
Yeah. Realistically I know they were. I just can’t muster up any enthusiasm for them right now.
My copy of The Archived arrived this morning but I have quite a few other things to read first, including This Savage Song, also by Schwab. I have High-Rise coming up fairly soon too which promises to be nasty, weird and dystopian. If it’s any good, I’ll let you know 🙂
High-Rise, isn’t that the one being adapted/already adapted into a movie starring Hiddleston?
After reading The Archived, I’ll definitely be looking for more of her books I think. I’ll probably be reading This Savage Song about the same time you’re reading The Archived!
