Happy Sunday book lovers! Today is the beginning of a new week and new books! The last few weeks I've found myself in a sort of slump. I read some really good books then all at once I just stopped. I didn't pick up a book for one solid week and barely read anything last week. That is just not like me. One reason might be that the book I had started reading just wasn't doing it for me. It was THE NIGHT GARDENER by George Pelecanos. I normally don't do this, but after almost 100 pages, I quit reading it. I just couldn't connect with the characters or the story. Maybe I'll pick it up again one day, but for now I'm moving on.
Even though I didn't read last week, I did manage to post my review of NO ONE YOU KNOW by Michelle Richmond. You can find that review here. I got three books in the mail last week that I'm excited about, so I'm hoping this slump is over. I also made a trip to the used bookstore and found a copy of THE SHADOW OF THE WIND by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I recently became aware of this book through Book Chatter and Other Stuff and I feel pretty lucky to have found a used copy so easily!
For today, when I get back from church I'm cracking open one of the new books that arrived last week. I'll have more details on them in tomorrow's post but for now I have to run and get ready. I'm already feeling like I'm getting back in my groove - I think this is going to be a great reading week!
