Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 91

Hello there.

Listen, you’re probably tired of reading this, but I don’t think I will ever stop saying it. I’m sorry for the lack of post – yet again. I’ve been incredibly distracted this week and I’m blaming these books shown below:
Wreck this Journal and Vicious by V.E. Schwab are both highly addictive. Victor Vale, the character in Vicious had become an inspiration for my latest obsession: blacked-out poetry. The whole week, I’ve been resisting the urge to raid my bookshelves for books that I didn’t like just so I could go to town and deface its pages. I know, I know. It’s against everything I stand for and the thought of violating the books, no matter how I much I despised them is like committing the Original Sin. I shall try and resist.

I have been experiencing a bit of a disillusionment with YA. I don’t seem to have the patience to read them nowadays. Between the immaturity and seemingly banal thoughts of the characters, I’ve found myself questioning if perhaps this is the beginning of the end of our love affair. I sure hope not, because I have a ton of these books in my shelves.

I just need to be reading more. Perhaps I’ve just been picking the wrong ones?  Even though I’ve only been focusing on Vicious, I have picked up unread books and skimmed them only to put them back on the pile because they failed to grab me. I really hope I’ll get over this slump soon.

I’ll be doing something different this week, though. I have decided to make reading goals. I want to read three books per week and will be pre-selecting them before the start of a new week.
So my choices this week are a couple of Colleen Hoovers (since I loved Finding Cinderella so much) and a book called, Not Exactly a Love Story by Aubrey Coulombous. Anyway, wish me luck.
