Library Loot

At last something bookish! Well it is still not a review, but at least this is a sign I am still reading!

I checked out the following:
Before I fall by Lauren Oliver
Catching Fire and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Dreams of Joy by Lisa See

I already read three of those books and only need to read Dreams of Joy. All three books are around 500 pages too. So I have been reading a lot. Will I review them, probably. When? I don't know. I am just not motivated at all at this moment. I have a backlog of 9 books for review. And more will be piling up. Either way I either need a review-a-thon or write mini reviews of some sort. I don't know. But some of those reviews do have to be written because the books are part of challenges. For now all I can say is that I am not really happy with myself for sitting in this review slump.


  1. I followed your updates through Goodreads and wow, you really sped through the Hunger Games series! :) Huge books too! Looking forward to reading your thoughts on Dreams of Joy. Lisa See has been on my to-read list for a while, but I haven't read any of her books yet.

    As for the review slump... it does get worse the bigger the back log gets :/ What about just jotting down a few thoughts on each of the books and then move on with the next? That way, you can always write something when the mood strikes again. You can't force a review writing session, is how I feel.

    1. With the hunger games series it just drew me in! It was so interesting to read :)

      I read Snow Flower and the secret fan before so when I saw Dreams of Joy coming new in at the library, I thought I try it :)

  2. Oh I loved Dreams of Joy! Have you read Shanghai Girls too?

    1. No I didn't but I did read Snowflower and the secret fan and I liked that one, so when I saw this one coming in at our library, I thought I would give it a go :)

  3. I liked the hunger games, looking forward to hearing your thoughts on them. Sorry it has been a while since I last stopped by, so many blogs!
