Final Notes: Pretty disappointed in the small amount I read this month. I didn't even get to 2000 pages. For July I will try to remember to spend the "lazy summer days" reading (instead of playing online poker).

How's everyone doing? These have truly been unprecedented months in the world, and I am finding myself really distracted, and it has been difficult to focus on my reading. Instead, I keep checking the news, reading everything I can on the protests, the voting issues (I knew that my polling place would be closed for now, so I had to vote by mail) and COVID.

Everything has really been messing with my mind, my thoughts, distracting me enough I've been finding if difficult to get to sleep. I've put a timer on my Instagram (what I thought to be my only social media) but I see stuff on here as well as a coloring app I use. Ironically, the coloring is supposed to be relaxing but now I just find it stressful. It's really difficult (especially being a reader) not to look at the comments, or read an article, etc. I've recently deleted some people I follow, not because of what they post but because they are posting CONSTANTLY. It's overload and it's too much for me.

I'm trying to focus more on doing a breathing meditation, a daily walk and listening to fun audiobooks. It seems to help over trying to read an actual book. Normally I'm mad at myself if I'm not reading, just listening, but we are in crazy times and if an audiobook is going to help me keep my sanity and entertain/distract me, that's what I'm going to do!

I hope everyone is well and things are going good!

I'm really having a hard time coping with just about everything! I'm afraid to even walk out the door. So I'm staying busy - cleaning (yuk), baking, watching TV, reading. Even though I'm reading more than usual I'm not reading as many books. I've gone through my TBR list and the books I've picked are over 400 pages. I usually read shorter books. So I'm even getting stressed over not reading as many books as usual. But other than driving myself crazy, I'm good.

Honestly, I'm scared of what the new normal will look like.

Hi Everyone, we have about 1 week left in the June read-a-thon. So, I was wondering. Is there a book that you read this month that disappointed you, or really didn't like?


message 30: by Kat (new)

Kat (bookworm2017) | 137 comments Must admit to not reading papers, or social media, or watching the news at all. I never used to, and that isn’t going to change, I told someone I chatted with and they blocked me. my friend has anxiety so I’m just trying to help her through it all.

I’m reading more than usual. I tend to give up on books that disappoint me I guess the most disappointing thing with one of my books was the ending, it was a slow burn then just rushed the romance. It was not realistic and it was a shame as I really enjoyed it otherwise


message 31: by Jo-Anne (new)

Jo-Anne (fish44) | 282 comments I started reading Virgin River (Virgin River #1) by Robyn Carr but got about a quarter of the way in and just stopped. I really like her books so I was surprised I didn't like this one. All there was up to that point was the set-up of the characters and town. I must admit, it's an old book and the first in the series but nothing happened!

I'm pretty anxious right now and not very tolerant so I don't have the patience for books that can't hold my attention. I'm reading a lot and want to be transported in that world. If a book can't do that for me, it's a DNF.

The one I'm reading now (The Dark Days Club) is a let down so far. Nothing freaking happens. You know 2nd book syndrome? But imagine it happening on Book 1!!!!
Unless the ending is spectacular, I don't think I'll continue with the series.

I had a disappointing experience with Artemis Fowl. I just didn't like Artemis. I don't know if it's as Jo-Anne said, about impatience with books that don't grab my attention right now, I don't know. I can be a mood reader. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for the book. I was hoping to love the book, and want to see the movie, oh well, that's not going to happen.

It's definitely all about being in the mood.
Sometimes I just want to watch a movie instead of reading the book.
Sometimes, meaning a lot, I tell my husband I don't want to sit for a two hour movie and then wind up watching 5 hours of a tv series.

I watched it last weekend! I was expecting a bomb of a movie, with only a ghost of the original story in it (which I haven't read, to be honest).
And even though I was expecting crap, I was still disappointed by it. It's that bad!

I read Artemis Fowl and it wasn't bad, only that I rarely read a middle grade series, so I didn't go on with the series. Is it bad because they made the story too much for younger children or is just badly done?

I have to admit that I am not a fan of Netflix either. Mainly because I don't watch TV. I do know people that love it because they can watch entire seasons of a series.

What I've been doing with Netflix is enroll, watch a few things then cancel, because I can go for several months and not really use it. Then I hear about something that sounds interesting, and I'll enroll again, just for that.

Leticia, it honestly feels like the people behind the camera all turned to each other and said "plot? what is plot? We don't need that! Let's just make this fun... for the kids! Like a treasure hunt... but with magic!" and they just went with that.
To call it a hot mess just doesn't convey how boring and senseless this movie was! It's just a series of boring cliches used in the most brain-dead way possible.

I haven't read the book, but my heart goes out to the fans of this series!

I am finding that my attention span has not been very good this month. I read for 15 minutes, but then I find I want to do something else. I'm reading, but I am not sure how much I am absorbing.
