#todayinsixwords: Rough week, but I did okay.
Well, the week didn’t go as I hoped, but even so, I managed to finish two books, and I’m happy with that, considering my goal was just one! It was one of the busiest weeks of the year at work, and reading on my lunch didn’t really happen. And then the evenings got away from me, or I was too tired to read. Thankfully I made up for it somewhat over the weekend. I still had fun, got to participate in one of the Twitter chats, and visited a lot of blogs. Overall, still a success! I look forward to the next BoB, and I hope my life is less busy that week!

#todayinsixwords: Too tired, I just wanna read!
I missed updating yesterday because life and work have been super busy. It would figure that this week would be the busiest work week I’ve had in months. I really can’t believe it’s Friday already! I managed to finish a book, yay. It was a good thriller as far as the plot and twist goes, but WAY too gory for me. I love horror, but I can’t stomach a lot of gore. It would make an excellent movie, where I could just close my eyes during all the gross parts.
I’m still enjoying Shadow and Bone, but it’s a slower read for me, simply because of all the damn Russian words. It isn’t helping that I don’t have the energy to focus on it this week. Should’ve picked something more light and fluffy to read!
No challenges the past few days, although I’ve enjoyed seeing everyone else’s posts. I love all the BoB posts – it’s so fun to see what everyone else is reading all week.
Here’s to HOPEFULLY getting a lot more read over the weekend! TGIF!

#todayinsixwords: Finally starting series – hope it’s amazing!
Not getting as much read as I wanted to the past few days, but that’s okay. I was too busy at work yesterday to read over lunch. Hoping today is different, because I’m really liking my book and want to dive back in! This series is getting so much love, I’m glad I’m finally trying it.

#todayinsixwords: Fun Twitter chat and good book!
I managed to get some reading time in over my lunch break yesterday, and while I walked on the treadmill last night. The book is intense and pretty gory – not used to a lot of gore in my books. But, so far it’s good. Glad I remembered the Twitter chat last night. It was a lot of fun!
Today’s challenge is hosted by The Book Monsters and is a book scavenger hunt! You can take your own pictures or use images you find online. Here’s mine!
I’ll be posting daily updates and participating in any challenges I can. Hope everyone participating has a great week! If you want to still sign up, you can do so here.
So, we know I’m a moody reader, and picking a TBR pile is usually a wasted effort. But, it’s still fun to do anyway. Here are the books I’d like to read. In NO way will I ever read them all – hell, I’ll be lucky to finish one of them. I have been wanting to start this Bardugo series forever and I’m hoping that declaring it a BOB read will force me to start it. 😉
I’ve already started reading Swerve, and I’m hooked. Lately I’m feeling very underwhelmed by what I’ve been reading, and I hope that changes this week with whatever I pick up. I need something epic!
1. Read as much as I can every day – lunch breaks and after my daughter goes to bed. – Well, this sorta happened, off and on throughout the week.
Finish one book.
Check in with other readathoners on blogs, Twitter, & Instagram.
4. Post an update each day. – Didn’t happen, but that’s okay.
Participate in one of the Twitter chats.
