My reading habits last year were horrendous. I didn’t get to read nearly as much as I’ve wanted. I’ve vowed (promised my tbr pile) that I would do better. So far, my attempts are pathetic. I’ve only read one book this year. Sad, isn’t it? I’m a writer. I love books. Why is it so hard to sit down and keep up with the books I’ve already purchased?
After finishing my last book, I perused my stack, searching for the perfect book to read next. I grabbed a book, sat down, read the blurb on the back cover and the first page. Nope. Not it. Got up and grabbed the next book. Same process. Still not a winner. Searched furiously for more. Four books and thirty minutes later, I still wasn’t satisfied. Even my husband stopped and asked me what I was doing.
I had to explain I was on the search for the perfect book. Nothing fit my mood. I finally settled on a book, not really satisfied. Until I had a conversation today with a friend. I apparently suggested a few books for her, and she let me know she was finally reading the first book.
Since I purchased this book new when it was first released, that will tell you how far behind I am in my reading. It took me five minutes to pry the book out of the stacks of my tbr pile. So sad. But the good news, I can’t wait to get started. I’ve also heard whispers about movie deals. The first book is in theaters January 27th!
I’ve showed you the next book I’m going to read, what’s yours? Is it a new release or an old goodie you put away for a rainy day?
