I wasn't able to do much reading in the past month, mainly because of work that sucks the life out of me. When I get home, the only thing I feel like doing is to go to sleep.
*I would just love to hibernate until Spring*
Also I need to get my anti-depressives prescription changed, because not only aren't they doing anything about the depression per se, but the warm and "insistent" feeling of having OCD has come back full force. That means, that my concentration has fled the building.
The only way for me to sit quietly while trying to read a book is if I have a cat napping on my lap: namely my little Sebastião.
For the first time in a long time, I no longer have the patience to write reviews.
Also it doesn't help the fact I seem to be picking a lot of mediocre books... or maybe that's just a side effect of the way I am feeling at the moment. I no longer know.
Well, all I know is that I read an embarassing small number of books this last month.
Books Read kind of : Seven Books.
1 DNF: Castle Hangnail- Middle Grade ( not even a bad book, I just lost the patience for it)
3 Historical Romances :
_Lisa Kleypas, Cold Hearted Rake _ 2.5 Stars
_Julie Anne Long, The Legend of Lyon Redmond- 2 Stars
_Caroline Linden, Written in My Heart, a Short Story ( or novella, but it was so badly developed, that I am just going to stick with the short-story definition)- 1.5 Stars
Dystopia / Post Apocalyptic/ Science Fiction:
1 Re-read ( I actually ended up liking it more this time around)- Defiant (Towers Trilogy #2 by Karina Sumner-Smith) - 4 Stars
2 Middle Grade/ Retelling:
_ T. Kingfisher, Bryony and The Roses- 4 Stars
_T. Kinfisher, Seventh Bride - 3 Stars
Mercedes Lackey, Beauty and the Werewolf ( Five Hundred Kingdoms #6)
I've just read about fifty pages of it, and I am already sick and tired of the main character.
Obnoxious, manipulative brat.
As a side note, this was one of the books I offered myself last Christmas. o_O
Karina Sumner-Smith, Towers Fall (#3)
Along with Susan Ee's Penryn series, this was the other series for which I had so many expectations. Thing is, with forty percent read a long couple of days ago, I just lost the patience for it. I was expecting it to explode with action, after the amazing first book, and instead it just keeps walking the more introspective road. I am tired of the character's monologues, and I just don't feel like picking it up any more.
Kelley Armstrong, Omens (Cainsville #1)
Because I needed a story I would be able to finish!
