I know I am slacking with the 30 day book challenge I started. I guess I just haven’t been up for it the past few days. I might get back to it soon. I figured I would do a post for the 2015 Reading Challenge I am attempting to also do. There is a category for it on my blog if you want to check out other posts.
I finished Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell in one day (yesterday). I started to listen to it at work and then I HAD to finish it, because I was just so into the book. I usually just pick it up the next day at work if it wasn’t finished. I couldn’t do that with this one, because I wanted to know how it ended and I only had three more hours of it left. This book was perfect. So perfect. I was crying throughout the entire book. I am not sure that I like the way that the book ended though. 😦 Overall, I loved it! Park was perfect and probably every girl’s dream guy. Eleanor, I really liked her, but at times she annoyed me. The book made me happy and it also made me so sad! This was me geeking out at work…
Have you read Eleanor & Park? Is there any books that have made you cry?
On a random note: I kind of feel overwhelmed right now with the amount of books I have to read (well want to read/bought). I’m also kind of annoyed at myself, because I haven’t been reading as much as I would have hoped I would this month (at least physical books anyway – I listen to tons of audiobooks while working). I’ve kind of just been not in the mood for it, I guess. I did get through a lot of Dorothy Must Die over the weekend and I am making it a point to finish it before the month is over. I have five books I got from Netgalley that I should start on and that is kind of overwhelming in itself…sigh.
I think over the last couple months I have put so much stress on myself over this that it has been feeling like a chore (and probably why I am finding it hard to want to read) and that’s never a good thing; especially when books and reading are some of my favorite things. I try to live a stress-free life, so it kind of sucks when some of my favorite things are the cause of the little stress that I do have in my life. When I say stress-free, I really mean it. I never let things get to me. Even if something bad happens, I just accept and move on. I’m a lot happier when I live that way, so I really don’t let things get to me and it sucks that this actually is. Part of me feels kind of silly about this, but it is what it is.
Just in case you missed them, here are a few of the last posts that I did.
- Book Haul and random adventure/pictures.
- March book from the book club I am.
- Last post from the 2015 Reading Challenge; happens to also be a Rainbow Rowell book.
Last but not least; here’s a random picture of me and my pup from the other night. I love this dude so much! You have no idea.
