I’m currently reading two books at the moment. I never thought I would take on such a task, but I was willing to take up the challenge. After reading ‘Six … Continue reading March 9, 2019: End of Week Reading Blog
I felt so enthralled by ‘A Blade So Black’. This is a modern retelling of ‘Alice in Wonderland’, set in Atlanta, Georgia. Alice is a young, African-American woman, balancing the … Continue reading February 23, 2019: A Blade So Black by L.L. McKinney/A Review
I wish I could read more of my current story during the week, since it’s a high page count. I’m still tackling my books about a couple chapters a night. Some days I have some time during my break, but I don’t want to get to used to reading then, since I usually get work tasks done. It does sound odd to do work assignments during my break, but since I don’t receive any prep time during the day, I usually spend my break times working. So I only get my reading done in the evening. I can manage a couple chapters before I fall asleep. Depending on what I’m reading, I need to pull myself away from the story, since I do value my sleep. Weekends are so valuable for personal time!
I’m about halfway through ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’. The way that people assimilate to a leader’s outlandish routines is pretty astounding. It makes me wonder when the ‘breakthrough’ point will emerge.
I watched a YouTube video last night on a man explaining his reading routine. He talks about spending some nights reading until dawn. I really admire his motivation to read so much. I don’t think I could ever read like that, since I love my sleep. I really admire his passion for reading, though!
I’m really liking ‘Daughters of the Lake’ so far. Wendy Webb loves going into a historical account of the characters involved in her plotlines. It’s very helpful for me, since I feel like it helps build tension for the pending drama that’s sure to take place.
I enjoy exploring many book blogging sites. Since I love to read and write, my ultimate goal is to begin a page if my own. Poetry also holds a strong place in my heart, and I want to express that devotion through the content I post on a daily basis.
Every evening I try to make a point to do some reading. I really want to reconnect with my literary side, so I’m working hard to maintain some amount of reading each day. I began reading ‘Daughters of the Lake’. I’m only on Chapter Four, but it’s a pretty good read so far. I’m hopeful to finish the book by the end of the month. Work has been very long and tiring, and I’m realizing that the need to keep up with my passions is vitally important.
I finished reading my Book of the Month selection for March, ‘Not That I Could Tell’ by Jessica Strawser. It turned out to be an engaging read. The story centered … Continue reading April 2, 2018: “Not That I Could Tell”: A Small Summary
