Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (5)

This was a really slow, unproductive book week for me. I ended up starting three different books, all books I want to read, but they just weren't what I *felt* like at the time. I've hit another "I have 500 books and nothing to read" slump. (That sure didn't take long -_-) And I'm very much a mood reader. If I'm not in the right mood for a certain type of book, it can ruin what would otherwise be a wonderful book!

But I still want to read something.

It's like being hungry and knowing you want food but not knowing what you want to eat. Does this book thing ever happen to anyone else? All part of the life of a bookworm I suppose...

Star Wars Rebels and Gravity Falls are Back!

Unfortunately I’m already falling behind because I have to wait for them to be available online. I’m actually not a big Star Wars fan, but the characters on this show sucked me in. I even bought A New Dawn: Star Wars while it was on sale because I couldn’t pass up the chance for more Kanera (Kanan + Hera) 😛

Books I Finished

Only three this week, which doesn’t seem bad, but I could’ve finished more if I hadn’t spent two days sitting around simply wondering what to read next.

A Girl's Guide to Vampires by Katie MacAlister | books, reading, book covers

    Sometimes I do feel like that! As a blogger, I often feel like I always need to be reading SOMETHING, but sometimes I just have to take a break from reading so I can get excited about it again. I think 3 books in a week is amazing because I’m lucky if I can finish just one!

      Well, this is more like I don’t want a break but just can’t figure out what to read lol. But I do know what you’re talking about because there are also times I get kind of exhausted from reading and do just need a break to let my mind clear for a few days or so. And thanks! I keep seeing all these other bloggers who read SOOOOO many more books, and it’s making me feel like my numbers are not up to par lol, but I’m trying not to worry about it because the whole point of reading is that it’s enjoyable, and it isn’t enjoyable unless you read at the pace you’re comfortable with, you know?
