February ended on Thursday of last week. I only had finished ten of my twelve books on my TBR. The two books not finished were both in the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik. The thing with reading series is if you do not finish the first book, then you can't even start the second. I am not sure what I plan to do with this series. The book is so slow, but I want to at least give the second book a chance. For now I have put it aside and am working on The City in the Middle of the Night by Charlie Jane Anders. Also, I am listening to the audiobook of Becoming by Michelle Obama.
Reading is not going so well. It is not that I am in a slump as much as real life is crazy busy. It is my busy period at work. Then at home we are reorganizing and cleaning the entire house. All of this on top of the everyday stuff that still needs to get done.
Reading is my mental health break. It is the thing that keeps me steady while raising special needs kids. It is the thing that has kept me steady while navigating the world with Aspergers. So, when life gets to busy to read it kind of sucks. I try and squeeze in a chapter here and there to ground myself and then go back to getting done what needs to get done.
Thankfully our home should be finished by the end of next weekend and things can go back to being the same. Work. . . well it will always be busy. However, busy at work sometimes means more reading. I throw in my earbuds and listen while plugging away.
How is your reading going?
