Work-wise and getting things done - wise, last week pretty much sucked.
However, as I plod along trying to take steps forward in my grief I believe I have turned a corner.
Last week, I read.
I don't mean read news sites and blog posts I mean books.
I don't mean I listened to books--though I am in the middle of a long audiobook and I listened to it.
I mean I read.
Five books in seven days.
Five new books that I have never read before.
Five books that are not written by Nora Roberts.
When my cousin, who lost both of her parents, told me that I would have problems reading, I didn't believe her. Reading and books are what got me through bad times. To a point it still did. I was reading and rereading the work of Nora Roberts. When I tried to read new books--I put them down.
Something happened. The dam of my TBR (to be read) pile crashed down and I picked up a new book and finished it. I grabbed another new book and did the same. If I wasn't with my husband or daughter I was reading, getting lost in words and worlds. I was staying up late reading to find out what happens next. I plan to be reviewing some of the books in later posts, but I can say that the biggest surprise of the books was Trade Me by Courtney Milan. Mainly because I don't like "New Adult" fiction usually--but this was a massive exception.
Anyone read any really good books lately? Because it seems that now I'm ready to.
