In My Mailbox (#10)

Hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

I still have an overhaul of books. And still very little desire to read anything, though when I feel in the mood to read, I take advantage of that and sit down and get lost in a book.

Yet, when I go to the library, I still have this habit of looking at the new book shelf and grabbing a few. I don't know why I do it when I can't even make myself to read. Or even have a little desire to do so. I hate not wanting to read, its a miserable feeling, esp. when I love to read.

I walked out with 6 more books, though luckily I had just dropped off a lot of books I knew I wouldn't even bother opening, even if they are on my TBR list.

3 cook books and 3 young adult books. I honestly don't know if I'll actually "read" read the cookbooks, maybe skim through the recipes and write some down that I would be interested in cooking. Or who knows maybe I'll read page by page. Hopefully they have some pictures, I HATE cookbooks without photos. I'm a very visual person when it comes to cooking, so I like to see what I'm about to "attempt" to make.

You know, I went through a period like that a while ago. I picked out a bunch of books to read, and I just could not get into any of them! I got to be friends with an author on Goodreads and really got into reading books by black authors. Now, that is mainly what I read! I have finally found what I love to read. They don't write all baby mama drama either. I do like reading books by self-published authors too. I have been getting several e-mails wanting me to review books. I rarely turn any down. I don't like historical books, but other than that I am pretty open.

Fallen Angel and Vampire Crush look good!

I hate that not wanting to read phase. I'm going through it a bit now, and before I started my blog there were months where I didn't read anything. I hope you want to read again soon!!

I'm very curious about the Piper's Son. I hope you like it and the other books.

I understand exactly what you mean about reading. I'm currently in a reading slump and it seems to be lasting for months :'( I don't know how to make it stop! I'm almost done with my finals so hopefully since I'll have more time, I'll be able to get back into reading. Whenever I get the urge to pick up a book, I don't have time so that's going to change :)

Hope your reading slump goes away soon!

Awww, I'm sorry you aren't feeling like reading. It's a crummy feeling, but I think it happens to a lot of us. I'm sure it will pass soon!! I feel like that when I have a lot of review books to read but I just want to read something...else!! hahaha!
