It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's been a while since I've posted a Monday post, pretty sure in my last post I mentioned almost falling behind on my Goodreads Challenge, I have since completed said challenge.

I might have "cheated" a bit.
Or as I said on my Facebook post:


It's only "cheating" if you're the "real book/novel" stickler type. A book is a book; no matter how short.
I've been pretty laid back with novels these last few months, I don't know what it is, I'm currently reading a book that is taking forever but I don't want to give up on it yet, and normally I'd be bugged that I wasn't making much progress. Plus now that I don't have a reminder on how many books I maybe behind I feel like the rest of the year is just a relax time for reading. (Not that there was ever any pressure, well except during that slump a few months ago.)

I guess it could be considered a phase, because now that I think of it, I went through a non-fiction phase this time last year.


Books I've been reading:
Dare to Sketch: A Guide to Drawing on the GoDare to Sketch: A Guide to Drawing on the Go by Felix Scheinberger
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It's a great motivational book. Just get out and go see what you can create!
It doesn't come off as a traditional how-to book it's more advice and tips. It really left me inspired to go out and try to sketch more. And definitely gave me a new outlook on what a sketch book can be.


Strangers on a TrainStrangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I gave up, especially since I knew it wasn't going to end with an amazing twist where everything we thought was true wasn't.

Books I'm reading this week:
Hard CoverA Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)

I started A Court of Thorns and Roses back in August, took a break, just recently picked it up again and have no problem with the idea of putting it back down. I'm torn between giving up and continuing no matter how many breaks I have to take from it. I really do want to try and finish, unlike a certain book I mentioned above, there's something there that is keeping me from throwing it against the wall. And I have no problem if it takes a while.

    1. I don't normally read them too often, but that's just where I've been lately.
