To say I’d fallen off the band-wagon could be an understatement. The past few weeks have gone by in a whirlwind with lots to do and not enough time in the day. This past weekend is the first time I have managed to sit down with my books and have some ‘me time.’
Over the past weekend I picked up my books and tried to jump in where I had left off and I also started some books I have been meaning to read for a while. To say I needed it would be an understatement, I deserved that time to myself.
I started reading Hollow City properly by Ransom Riggs, the second novel in the Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children series. I have been trying to get to this book for a long time because of the movies release at the end of the month. So far I am really enjoying it, I’m only about a quarter of the way through and I’m excited to see how it unfolds for the characters. Of course the end of the first novel left me with many questions and a hunger to know what happened next.
I’m also halfway through Scarlet by Marissa Meyer which is an equally addictive read. I love how to story is told in two parts following Cinder and Scarlet and I can’t help but hope that their lives cross at some point. I am eager to see what will happen and where they will go together in the plot. I loved the first book in this series and couldn’t get enough of it, the fact that there are numerous books in this series make me only want to devour the books I already have and order Winter to see how the plot ties together.
The following weeks are only going to get busier for me with work and the wedding getting closer but fingers crossed I still get to squeeze in some reading time. Already I’m scanning my shelves for books to read on the plane as we jet off on our honeymoon, in the back of my mind I know that’s the time I’ll get to sit down and completely focus on my books.
