I can never get enough...


It's Friday and I am ready for the weekend. 
Ready for relaxation.
Ready for fun!
Ready for the massive amounts of reading time.

It's a long weekend. SO... of course there will be reading time.

Reading time has been filling my mind lately. I have just been in the "reading mood". It has been amazing. I am going through books as if they were a few words long. I am not going to question it. I am just going to keep reading until I get sick of it.

Since my last update, I read 4 stories. Lady of the English by Elizabeth Chadwick was another historical fiction. I cannot get enough of them and this one did not disappoint.

The Wayward Muse by Elizabeth Hickey. During one of my trips to the library, I noticed that this book was being featured. So, I did what everyone does. I checked out the book cover and read the synopsis within the book sleeves. Based on the synopsis, I was excited to read this book. As I started reading, my first thought was... "this is not what I expected". The happenings were slow and I was not a fan of the characterization. I never was able to find a character to relate to and hated the decisions that the characters made. I just was unable to "enjoy" this book.

Blue Asylum by Kathy Hepinstall. My Gosh. I was SO DISAPPOINTED when I realized I was coming to the end of this book. I was shocked by how well written this book was. It took me back to my high school days when I had to dissect the book for literary devices the helped progress the story. There was so much hidden in this book. So much juxtaposition. So many themes. With this book, Kathy Hepinstall became one of my favorite authors.

A Winter's Knight by Elizabeth Cole. An extremely short story that can be found in the freebie Amazon Kindle book list. Cute. Simple.

I feel bad for adding that last one. It was so short but it was cute. And I never set rules on how long the stories had to be to be added to my "read" list.

So yes. I am on to another book and am having trouble putting it down. I'll update again soon!

Happy end of the week/ weekend y'all!
