It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Last week was a really slow reading week… I didn’t finish anything and was generally feeling pretty discouraged. Yesterday, though, I forced myself to sit down with a book I’d been hemming and hawing about completing and I actually ended up enjoying it. I don’t want reading to be work, but sometimes I have to force myself to remember why I enjoy doing things like reading books or going to the gym. They don’t sound fun until I do them!
Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry– Benny reluctantly takes a job in the family business as a zombie hunter and is slowly drawn into a new world where he learns some stuff about life, humanity, and himself. For a zombie book this one is pretty slowly paced, but I am nearly finished after forcing myself to read it.
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery– Reading this along with the BHA over at The Cheap Reader. I’m maybe halfway through, but taking it very slowly. Anne is a totally adorable character and I am really enjoying this read. I’ve got a bunch of library holds coming in, so unfortunately this owned book is taking a back seat while I try to finish those I have to return soon.
I’ve also picked up Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer from the library recently. The first was recommended to me as a good love triangle and I’ve never really read steampunk, so I thought I’d give it a shot. The second… I dunno, I figured the movie would be getting some buzz and that I should check out the book. I also think I am ready to give adult fiction another go… although adult fiction with a child protag probably doesn’t count! Probably won’t get to these for another week, but they’ll be around when I’m ready!
