I am linking to the usual suspects Stacking The Shelves The Sunday Post It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I am having a hard time concentrating on what I read and I am worried about it. Lately, I’ve been falling asleep every time I start reading FFS! I just can’t. I also don’t enjoy it when I’m in a lot of pain. My mind isn’t retaining anything and I can’t seem to concentrate. I fear to have a stroke. I don’t know what is going on physically, but reading is really hard to do. I also have to go over things 2 or 3 times just to be able to comprehend what I’m missing. I don’t want to say that the books I read are garbage because that would be an insult to the author’s hard work and dedication and to my ability as a reader probably, but I’m not enjoying anything.
¶ I guess what I want to say is I am greatly affected by what goes into my mind and it is important to feed our minds with good books and not junk. Why do people fall into reading slumps? Speaking about cancer in a horror story
“This place, this fanciful realm, it’s crept into you through your brainholes. And I’m connected to your brain, to every part of you, really. I have so much access now. I see so many things. I’m everywhere and everyone.”
—Exquisite Corpse Episode 8
My brain is generally overactive and it doesn’t work as effectively in processing certain things. Idk, I have too many unanswered questions related to my health right now. I need answers.
What I added to My Shelf
Was I wise to buy these two books? Idk, I really wanted to read a Cormoran Strike novel again and The Name of the Wind kept popping up. I thought the synopsis was interesting and I just might have to get the audio for this one.
¶ I was really hoping to get Muse of Nightmares (although I have the audiobook). I think I will wait for it to come out in paperback because it is just too dang expensive and the library has too many holds on it. I have to reread Strange the Dreamer also. That was one book I couldn’t wrap my head around! I lost interest over the god spawn up on the hill.
I also won a book of choice from Angela’s Guilty Pleasures during the FraterfestRAT. I chose Cecy Robson #1 Sealed With A Curse, which I’m looking forward to because I had received an e-arc of Gone Hunting and I really liked it.
¶ I haven’t got any new arcs from Netgalley but I still need to read the eleven I have waiting to be read. Is it a coincidence there are 11 more days until Halloween?
¶ I am 2 books away from completing my Goodreads Reading Challenge for this year and we still have Christmas books to read! I joined in a Christmas Readathon with Just Another Girl and Her Books. I encourage everyone to participate in that as well.
Sanguine Woods shared a FREE Horror story made up of 10 episodes that I listened and read. If you didn’t have anything better to do but waste your time with this then I recommend it. It was just okay but “I would HAVE to read/listen to it over and over to come to a better appreciation. That’s how slow my mind works.” My favourite episode is Ep. 8 written by Stephen Kozeniewski. I suppose because it was the most exciting with the most action but what a poor old coot the exquisite corpse was! He had a family and everything! You can read all about that in episode 4.
I hope everyone is safe and in good health. What epic books have you read this week?
Please share your answer to this TAG. It’s Fun!

That’s hilarious. I mean do bears even have opposable thumbs?
