There goes my plan of posting every weekend (Sunday or Monday). I didn’t post last week because I had a nasty cold/throat thing. It involved lots of coughing and very little sleep. Last weekend I didn’t feel good. Add to that that Sunday was the last day of my vacation and on Monday I went home and had to unpack and do laundry, I just didn’t have the energy to write a blog. I didn’t read much last week. I did manage to finish one novella yesterday.
Luckily my vacation week, my annual Reading Retreat, gave me enough time to read. I read one novella and finished five books. The books weren’t long, but all in all I read just over 1600 pages. Which isn’t bad considering the last couple of months in reading for me. Of all of what I read that week I think I like Five Nights in a Haunted Cabin by Tamara Thorne & Alistair Cross most. It recalls their five night in a cabin owned by a friend of a friend, supposedly a haunted cabin. They retell what happened during those days and nights. Thorne turns out to be paranormal investigator besides a writer and it’s refreshing not everything they experience is immediately chalked up to ghosts. They always try to find a logical reason for the happenings.
I also finished the first series of the year; Ambrose Ibsen’s The Ulrich Files. There seems to be a follow up series about the same main character. After I finish my current book I want to start getting back into my series again, though not as fanatically as last year. I think my slowing down of reading last year was due to my focus on finish several series. I simply burned out on those. This year I want to have more space for stand alone books and choosing books I feel like reading, instead I feel I have to read. Hopefully I can get out of my reading funk that way.
