My other challenges aren't going so great, need to get back to reading books on my shelves instead of buying new ones.... And get finishing series instead of starting new ones!

Oh girl I am the same! I am so bad at finishing series, it's not even funny (it's kind of funny lol)! But you're doing really well on your other challenge, so yay!

Your not alone! I love the first book in a series, it is always so exciting learning about the characters and the world but after that, it gets kind of dull for me and there are ALOT of series that I never finished!


message 6: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4940 comments Mod
Oh me too. Often its because I get bored waiting for the next book to be released! But I am trying to get some series cleaned up, either by finishing them or letting them go altogether.


message 7: by Liliana, YA Paranormal Lover (new)

Liliana (lililostinabook) | 2328 comments Mod
For me it's not that I get bored... I just come across other books and forget to get back to my previously started series because ooooooh shiny new book that just released! Lol

message 23: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4940 comments Mod
Me too!! Im reading good books just blah. I keep reading/listening to a chapter then putting it down and walking away. Hate that!!


heather - NightlyReading (heatherhy01) | 1001 comments Brittany wrote: "Me too!! Im reading good books just blah. I keep reading/listening to a chapter then putting it down and walking away. Hate that!!"

ugh! I have the same problem, if it does not grasp my attention right away, then I put it down and sometimes NEVER come back to it! It was a HUGE accomplishment for me to actually finish Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) by Sarah J. Maas because I normally would have just put it down and not even blinked at not picking it back up!


message 25: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4940 comments Mod
Right?! Its so frustrating! Heck even when it is grabbing my attention I'm still putting it down! The fact I listened to like 5 chapters today is a small miracle :P

Glad you finished HoF Heather, I enjoyed QoS more. So much comes together.

I started QOS but didn't get very far. I need to read it when I am more focused and alone. Sometimes there is just too much going on at my house to concentrate

Kayleigh {K-Books} (kayley_12) | 1952 comments Mod
I am exactly the same at the moment. Work has been insane and now we have Ofsted in next week. If you’re not in th U.K. Ofsted is basically a group of people who come into schools and colleges to assess how good we are. It’s really stressful and I’m already dreading next week. I probably won’t read much until that’s over if I’m honest.


message 28: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4940 comments Mod
That does sounds stressful Kay. Hope it all goes well. I get the work being busy though its been an interesting short week at the hospital. TGIF!

I finally finished Alice (The Chronicles of Alice, #1) by Christina Henry
What the hell was that mess.... I enjoyed it up until about 50% then it just becomes well rather bad. Im not a fan of gore just for the sake of gore. Plus the end was the most anticlimactic thing. And I couldn't believe the love interest thing at all.
