Reading for Goodreads Groups

one hundred years of solitude( ends June 30)

The beginning was really interesting but then things went wrong. I HATE  jumping around and pointless things happening. It really does not help that I read  another book with magical realism, After Dark by Haruki Murakami which  did it better.

I’m wrestling with putting it down to the side for a little bit. I just question if I am not feeling it right now or just plain don’t like it. Dump

tod(ends July 31 )  I’m waiting on the really depressing stuff to happen. I am reading Charles Dickens which is not all that depressing but most of his characters have a rough life. So this book needs to hop to it. I think because I was spoiled before and told how so very extremely depressing it is.  I can say that when it is good it is good. I did put a long response to all the events that have happened so far but had to take it out. I could not figure out how to do spoilers on WordPress.

(Ends July 15)

I do not have much to say except it is still good.

Other Books Read

to Very slow-moving. It is good and stuff is actually happening. Nonetheless, it is going slow about it.

A Day No Pigs Will Die– jumps around. Do not know if this is because I listened to it on audio book. Then it is autobiography. Coming of age story how I  do not like you.   I was one hour into the three hour audiobook when the not feeling it hit me. I thought maybe you just need a break. I came back not wanting to continue. I do not want to fall into finishing books just to finish them to say I read blank books this week. Dumped

Heresy – I am not feeling this book.  I just kept thinking about this book and how much I was not feeling it. I did not like the main character and just felt like it would be useless to continue with the book Dump

Missing Abby/No Safety In Numbers-Read the first few chapters, reeks of poorly written ya. Dump

Orphan of the Sky- questionable content/ hard to get through Dump

Little Women and Werewolves- I read Little Women a couple of weeks ago and did not like it. The reason I got Little Women in the first place is because of this book. So I started this book and realized something that probably is really obvious, I am kind of rereading Little Women by reading this. I will not reread through the boring mess that is Little Women.
