I’ve been in a bit of a reading mania last week or so. I finished reading the Christmas Box trilogy last week; it definitely felt like I read each one in a day. The first one is definitely one you can read in a day and the others technically so. They’re a little bit longer than the first one, but not by much. It’s just the subjects that are covered are a little bit heavy if you linger on it.
I’ve been re-reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I first read this book in 2014 or 2015, though I can’t exactly remember which year, but it was around that time. I didn’t like it when I first read it, but I wanted to finish the series (as long as it is) just to say that I read it. I’ve also been told that the books get better as it goes on, not quite as romance heavy as the first one. Needless to say, I’m anxious to read the rest just to see for myself. I’m not much into time traveling as some do and sometimes the accents are a little heavy even as I’m reading it on the page so it’s been slow going. At least I’m picking up on stuff that I apparently missed last time in my rush to finish the book. So there’s that.
Last week, we wrapped our dog’s Christmas presents as well as my mom’s. I even started wrapping some of A.’s presents. I love Christmas and I can’t believe that it’s going to be here next week. I hope that it’s everything we hope it to be. It’ll be our first Christmas together in our new house and our first one as a married couple. Life can’t be more exciting.
I was thinking about starting a notebook of all the books that I want to read. Put down all the books that I want to read and actually read them one by one. I don’t know how good that will get me, but at least I’ll be able to remember which ones I’m actually looking for. I tend to be an impulsive reader, picking up books that interest me in the moment and not because I actually planned it out. As much as I like this idea, I probably won’t because I’m not good at planning out reading.
Anyway, my post today is a little scattered. Being out for a couple weeks has left me rusty, but don’t give up on me! I’m getting back in the swing of things and I hope to be back to my usual self!
What have you been reading this season? What are you excited for?
