While I had optimistically thought I was out of my ruts, it seems that I am still struggling a bit. For example, although I have read 4 out of the 6 books I have planned for review this week, I have reviewed not one of them. I have the templates made up with the basic information but I have not felt motivated to set down in front of my computer and attempt to craft some words.
Meanwhile my reading rut has some easily identifiable causes: I just read two books for review that were really not to my taste. I rated one 2 stars and the other 3 stars (reviews to come later this month). I had really high expectations for the 2 star one so that is incredibly disappointing to me. Happily I am planning to finish the latest Elizabeth Boyle today (Along Came a Duke) and will be reading the highly recommended Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo as well (see Mimi Valentine's review). I am hoping this will reignite my love and help me start the week strong. I am hoping to read 26 books this month after all.
In personal news, I got bangs! I had them when I was young but started growing them out seven years ago. Lately I have been craving a change in my hair and while I keep touching them and brushing them off my face, I really love the way I look with them.
I also goofed and forgot to mention that I guest-blogged for Jenny at Into the Morning Reads this week (we "met" when she designed my beautiful blog); I shared what fictional character I would set my sister (who I am now dubbing Fashionista1732) up with. I think a lot of you will be jealous...check it out here!
How are your reading weeks going? How long does it usually take you to write a review? Do you have bangs (or have you had bangs)?
