Reading Blues (Someone send help!!!)

Well, I know that I haven’t posted any reviews yet this month but I had to check in with my audience and let you guys know that I am in fact reading, I just haven’t been able to finish anything until yesterday when I finished The Next Person You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom. I am still trying to figure out if I am going to do a review on it or not.

I guess you could say that I am in a bit of a reading slump. I blame it on the fact that I have so many books that I want to be reading right now. My current TBR (Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver, Family Trust by Kathy Wang, November Road by Lou Berney and some others) is so ridiculous and I am already making a prospective TBR for next year. I can’t believe that October is already halfway over!

I have faith that I will get out of this slump and have some reviews for you guys. So many awesome books have been published recently that I have copies of and want to get read before the year is over.

Another thing that I have been up to is doing reviews for The Girly Book Club. I sent my first review to them last month. I have a couple more books lined up to review for them and they are books that I have been wanting to get my hands on. Unfortunately, I am unable to share my reviews here but I will occasionally let you guys know what I have read for them and give you a simple short insight of my thoughts. I also will be posting pics of those books on my Bookstagram (www.instagram.com/ReaderthenBlogger) because who doesn’t love pictures of books?

This weekend I am attending the Oklahoma Book Festival in Oklahoma City with my awesome book loving friends, 3 Book Girls (www.3bookgirls.com) and I will be joining them to review a “horror” story. I am a wimp so I will let you know in advance that I did NOT read anything creepy, lol. I was going to try to read The Shining by Stephen King but I just couldn’t stomach the thought. I had almost convinced myself to go ahead and try it then I watched the trailer for the Pet Semetary remake and quickly changed my mind. It instantly reminded me of how much of a chicken I am, lol.

I want to thank each of you for your continued support and let you know that I am not gone, just trying to find my footing again. Sometimes these things happen.

Let me know what you guys are reading in the comments below.
