I am in a sad state. I just don't feel like reading. Well, that's not entirely true. I feel like reading when I'm at work and I'm supposed to be working. I feel like reading when I'm playing with Goodreads. I feel like reading when I'm driving my car and listening to bookish podcasts. I feel like reading when I'm buying the books. I DON'T feel like reading when I am at home with some extra time on my hands. Then I feel like watching planner videos and booktube. That's why my holds list is noticably longer than my checked out list. I put the books on hold. They come in. I stare at them for a few weeks, then I take them back.
So here it is:
Hit Lit: Cracking the Code of the Twentieth Century's Biggest Bestsellers by James W. Hall - It's a book about books! It's also pretty nap-inducing.
Turbo Twenty-Three by Janet Evanovich - This is a holdover from last month. It's not published yet, so you'll see it here until at least November, maybe December.
Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice - This one isn't released yet either, but you know I had to add another Vampire Chronicles book to the list.
Still Life With Tornado by A.S. King - She is coming to Tulsa at the end of October and I am going to see her, so I figure I should read a book. But of course I picked the newest one, which the library doesn't have in circulation, yet. Sigh.
A Scot In the Dark by Sarah MacLean - The only book I've managed to finish this month aside from my book club book is The Rogue Not Taken. This is the sequel. They are trashy romance novels, which lets you know about where my brain ability is right now.
Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick - I love Anna Kendrick so of course I have to be on the list for her memoir when it comes out this fall.
Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance - In the vein of my penchant for sociology books about the poor in the South, this book pushes all my tingle spots. Basically, it points out that the hillbilly/redneck/white trash segment is the only group we can still make fun of in a culture that increasingly looks down on shaming culture groups. I can't wait!
Slade House by David Mitchell - This is our creepy October/Halloween book club book. It's probably really scary and I'll only be able to read it in broad daylight.
So that's what's currently going on on my library account. With my luck, they will probably all come in at once. Hopefully, I'll be out of this slump by then.
