Hello, lovely readers!
I know, I know – I’m probably the worst blogger in the history of bloggers. I disappear for random amounts of time, and I never really have a good reason for it.
Just being honest with myself for once.
That being said, I had the urge to post something and wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to post. Then I decided I would go ahead and talk about what I would like to read this weekend. I make no promises as to whether I will actually read any of this, or at all. But, hey, it’s worth a shot, right? I basically want this to be something I post once in awhile, where I talk about what I would like to read throughout the weekend and just talk about reading in general.
I’m in this really weird place with reading right now. I don’t want to call it a slump necessarily, though that has been my reality for the past couple of months. It is more of a reading hysteria (though I’m not entirely sure that’s fitting either). Anyway, basically I want to read so many different things that I’m having a really hard time finding something to actually read.
I’ll start reading something that I am genuinely interested in reading (I could even be enjoying it immensely), and I’ll think, “I really want to read Burial Rites instead”. So, I’ll pick up Burial Rites instead, and read a section of it. Then it will happen again. “I really want to read Falling Kingdoms instead. Or actually, I want to read A Court of Mist and Fury. Hmm, maybe I’ll reread Fangirl instead.” It’s absolutely maddening.
For the most part, Burial Rites by Hannah Kent is the book that I have been reading. And like I said above, I am really enjoying it. It’s a very atmospheric novel, and I love Kent’s writing. However, I’ve been slowly reading it for like two weeks now. The writing style is a bit different from what I am used to, and that probably has something to do with it. But it does not help when I want to pick up a new book every five minutes.
Is anyone else experiencing something similar to this? It’s also kind of mixed in with things like I can’t decide if I want to read, watch television, or knit. And an irrational anger at the fact that I cannot do all three at once.
If by some miracle I happen to finish Burial Rites this weekend, I will probably pick up A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas next. It finally came in, and I have been anticipating this book for over a year now. I need it. I neeeeeeed it. I also might pick up We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han since I got paid today.
See what I mean? DON’T JUDGE ME.
What are you reading this weekend?
