Where is the time going? I am currently further behind in my reviews than I have ever been. Four books awaiting reviewing! If Iâ€™m smart, Iâ€™ll stay right here and knock them all out this evening, but I doubt that will happen. The books Iâ€™ve finished that Iâ€™ve yet to review are: Tell No One by Harlan Coben, The BFG by Roald Dahl, Sunny Chandlerâ€™s Return by Sandra Brown, and Tripwire by Lee Child.
I feel like it hasnâ€™t been a particularly good reading month for me. After I gave up on The Firemasterâ€™s Mistress, I moved right into The Zookeeperâ€™s Wife by Diane Ackerman, which has also been slow going. I guess I wasnâ€™t expecting it to be *so* non-fictiony. The Zabinskiâ€™s story sometimes gets lost in all the minutiae. This one Iâ€™ll finish, because itâ€™s for my book club, but Iâ€™ve got to either finish it or put it down by Wednesday, otherwise I wonâ€™t get the other stuff I need to read by the end of the month read. I need to review Mating Rituals of the North American WASP by Laura Lipton by May 27, and Reunion by Terese Fowler by May 30. Time to crack that whip!
Iâ€™m starting to feel a little overwhelmed by the TBR pile again. I donâ€™t really know what Iâ€™m going to do about it, though.
I have managed to get a few books reviewed since my last Sunday Salon post…
- Dead Girls Are Easy (Terri Garey)
- Bonk (Mary Roach)
- Afraid (Jack Kilborn)
- Darling Jim (Christian Moerk)
- First Family (David Baldacci)
I also got some great news last week, that isnâ€™t going to help my TBR pile at all… I got invited to join the Amazon Vine program! I requested my first four books from it, and have already received one — a book I have been dying to read — Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. So that will probably be the next to be read after I finish off what I need to by the end of the month.
And now, itâ€™s time to think productive thoughts. Reviews! Must write reviews!
