Slow Progress


Well keeping up to date this week, although sadly there isn't much to report. 

So after another good period last time of reading two books and starting a third I've flagged. I'm not in reading slump or anything like that I just seemed to have reverted back to my slow pace again and well I don't know actually I felt like I gave reading a good go over the weekend but didn't actually make much progress. It might be though because the book is one of the bigger ones I've read so far but then pages wise there's probably not much in it when I have read two books but maybe it's just because it's in one whole book. Oh I don't know I just know that I don't feel like I've progress very well.

So as you can see I'm only 163 pages in and on chapter 10. I feel like I've failed haha which I know is ridiculous but still I was really hoping that going into this even though I knew it was the biggest book so far it would only take me a little bit longer and hoped to finish in a week and half but nope definitely can't see that happening now and so I'm hoping maybe after another week I might be there but guess we shall just have to see. It will all depend on how much reading I can get in during the week as well.

All this being said I'm fairly enjoying it so far. I mean it's nice to be back with the characters as I do like Rose, Lissa and Adrian for that matter but I do feel sometimes maybe it is a little bit slow. It might pick up I don't know yet but it does feel like it drags on slightly. But I'm only on chapter 10 so could pick up yet. Will be interesting to see what develops during this book and where it ends for leading onto the last book in the series. 

Only other bad news to report is that I didn't get anymore sewing done this week! Naughty very naughty as my deadline looms even closer so I'm going to have to rectify that this week and I'm going to try and set a side a couple of hours on two evening to catch up a bit. As have to get it finished pretty soon! Will have to book my mum in as well for next Sunday or something so I can do the binding so there's my big deadline for pretty much having it finished. 

OOOOO nearly forgot, as I was poorly and needed a bit of cheering up and as I pointed out last time I suddenly had a bit of a lack in genre in my books on the shelf on Saturday I placed an Amazon order. :) Because we have Amazon Prime now they arrived on Sunday! Which is amazing. 

I don't think I went too over board I think this is fairly reasonable considering some of the book hauls you see on booktube, so I'll refer to this as a mini book haul. I'd seen some of these books being spoken about rather regularly and then others I'd been meaning to pick up for a while and then others I'd had recommended. Now I've already decided as soon as I've finished Spirit Bound I'm going to read Shatter Me. Then with a couple of the others they are in my tbr jar already and I'll either wait to pick them out of there or cheat and just go with what I fancy. I don't like to be too strict with how I choose what to read and when to read it. I figured the main thing when it comes to reading, you have to be interested and have a certain desire to read it otherwise you won't get into it, won't feel like reading it and then that's the way I figured a reading slump would then ensue. But so excited to have some of these finally and be able to have them ready to read. I'm a little daunted by the size of the Brandon Sanderson trilogy but again I've heard some great things about these and came recommended to me as well and who knows I might be completely engrossed by them and then want to marathon them (I doubt it though as don't really like the idea of marathoning haha). Guess we shall just have to wait and see when the time comes. So there's a bit more excitement to end the week on. 

That's it for this week and hope you enjoyed reading.
