I can’t readdddddddd XD
No seriously, this is a delayed SOS call for help, I literally can’t read.
I only managed to read 2.5 books in September (what?!) and I’m trying to come up with possible reasons as to why this may be the case. I think I have a few after getting some ideas at 4am in the morning a few nights ago. First, College and exam priorities. Second, trying to cram in too many books at once. Three, not finding the right time of day/place to read and so on. My reading challenge on Goodreads is literally doomed, being 16 books behind is not a good thing, at least I hit the 50 books mark like two months ago. 😛
Last weekend, I went out for the day with my family because it was my dad’s birthday. Shopping, lunch and then book hunting was an incredibly fun experience. This image below will show you the books that I picked out from the past weekend:
So many good-looking books there plus the top half of my sleeping cat who gate-crashed the photo with her snoring. I selected a real random mix of authors, genres and paperbacks/hardbacks. If there’s one thing that I love, that’s the feel of mass market paperbacks, don’t get me wrong. I love vintage and antiques but they just remind me of the 1960s a little bit which is my favourite decade that I would have loved to have lived in because of a few certain musicians (Elvis, The Beach Boys, The Beatles).
The good news somewhat is that I am slowly starting to pick up books again and now it is October, fingers crossed I can get over that 16 book hurdle and reach my year goal of 100 books read!
