The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.
Horrible reading week! I think I jinxed myself after writing my DNF report because I DNFed the two books I was trying to read. I am just not in the mood for slow moving books. One the author gave me and I loved his first book so I was like sure, then I couldn’t get through it and made it to page 70 verily and the repetitive words and it was just so boring. The author though was very nice and told me he was sorry I didn’t like it and not to feel obligated to finish it and if I did finish it he was okay with a less that stellar review…how about that an author that gets it…so he stays on my reading list and I will try him again, some times there is just a book that is not for me and I don’t like trying to force myself. He said the reviews on this book had been interesting to see come in as either you loved it or hated it but not many in between. Then the other book I didn’t even make it to 30 pages and was in snoozeville so just quit…lol. I don’t want to get in a slump cause I am bored with my reads!!
Thank goodness for some good audios and a horror novella or I wouldn’t have gotten much read…lol. 🙂 I am feeling the urge to read horror and skip out on my review list so I don’t slump. I hate doing that though so maybe I can fit in some horror off my list. 🙂
The forecast calls for rain and more rain and more rain…oh wait a dry day then more rain. I am sick and tired of RAIN. 🙁

What I am watching
Well, I am mainly watching stuff I have watched over and over…lol. Midsumer Murders is a regular watch for me, seen them all I lot of times. 🙂 I am watching Midnight, Texas and this month is the last installments of the Garage Sale Mysteries. 🙁 Each Sunday will feature a mystery and it has been advertising the last one as the final chapter in this limited series so I take that as its over…boo.
