Bout of Books 12 ~ Day 6

Bout of Books

Morning all!! It's Day 6 and I am definitely not going to reach my one goal of 25 books. I guess that's a little too high. Last time, I read 20, so I thought upping it would work out, but I guess not. Oh well, I hope I at least get back to 20 again, we'll see if I get there though. I didn't take into consideration that it's the last weekends of football and even though my beloved Steelers, sigh, didn't make it in, we're still watching, because it's football, and I don't want it to be over. Plus, we're getting rid of cable next week, so watching our sports while we can.

Anyways, 13 books down, we'll see what the next two days give me. I have only about 45 minutes left on my next audiobook, so that'll be done soon. It's a pretty popular book, considered a classic, I think, and I'm not feeling it at all. But I gave something different a try. We'll see if something drastic changes in the last 30% for me.

No challenges again for me today, though I may come back and do the quote one, since that won't take too long. Not going to do the other one, as it just takes too long and I want to get this book finished up and move on to something better.

Finished the book mentioned above. It was, The Giver, by Lois Lowry and I HATED it. I have a lot of thoughts jumbled in my mind about the horrible book but I will keep those thoughts to myself. I don't understand how people can like it. I don't see why it's rated so well. I'm glad to have tried something new, but now I'm miserable and just want to read something good and fun and not that piece of shit. Can anyone enlighten me on why that book is supposedly great?

UPDATE ~ 8:30pm
I definitely won't be getting near 20. The Giver left me so upset and pissed off today that I didn't pick up another book. It's only because it's a read-a-thon that I will even read start another book tonight, but I am not going to worry about finishing it or anything else that I start tomorrow.

I really don't handle it well when I read a book I don't like, it puts me off of my books and I have to find something REALLY great to pick me back out of my small rut, and right now, I don't know what that could be. I picked a series I'm behind on to listen to, tonight before sleep, but other than that, I don't know what, or when, I'll find to read next. :/

  1. You have read way more than me! :) I have only got about 6 done and most of them were

  2. Don't feel bad about missing your goal - you still read a ton! I agree with you about The Giver - I had heard so many people rave about it and it is actually in a genre I read a lot, but I did not like it. It's too bad it put you into a slump.
