Book Journey. It is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.
I'm reading again!!
After hitting a reading slump that lasted about four months, I have finally found the joy of reading again. And it feels wonderful! :) I still don't know why I suddenly lost all interest in reading, but it doesn't really matter now and I'm not going to over-analyze it. Suffice it to know that I've read two great books in the past couple of weeks and really enjoyed them - so much so, in fact, that I stayed up until almost 3 AM this morning to finish one of them. I've been yawning all morning, but it was worth it.
Here's what I've read lately:
This was a review book that took me forever to read. I never really connected with the main character, which is why I think I wasn't too excited about picking it up again once I'd put it down. Read my review here.
I read Incarceron around this time last year and really liked it, so when I started feeling like I wanted to read again I decided the sequel might be a good place to start - easy to read, exciting and with characters I already knew (plus I had to read it before I forgot everything that happened in the previous book). I don't think I'll be writing a review for this as I never reviewed Incarceron, but I like this series a lot. There's non-stop action, a brilliant setting and great supporting characters. I'd absolutely recommend it if you like YA fantasy/dystopia.
The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
This is the one that kept me up all night last night. I just couldn't put it down, it was that enchanting. And it has the most adorable cover. Review will be up soon.
Now the big question is, what to read next? I'm terrified of picking up something I'll end up not enjoying and falling into another reading slump. I think I'll look for something short and sweet just to be sure I won't put it down and not pick it up again. I love reading right now, but it somehow feels a little fragile, like the joy might disappear again without warning. It sounds silly but I can't help it.
