I know I say this every time, but I just can’t believe how quickly this week has gone. I didn’t get as much read as I wanted to, but I think that’s because I ended up picking reasonably heavy books.
My goal list is here, but the gist is that I wanted to get through three books from my TBR and write/post three reviews.
Here’s what I ended up reading –
That’s The Gunslinger by Stephen King, Jurassic Park: The Lost World by Michael Crichton, Bumped by Megan McCafferty and then a little of Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan.

Oh. I actually thought I’d done really badly, but that’s nearly as many as my last Bout of Books total of 1330. I think that because my first two books were kind of heavy I didn’t progress nearly as fast as I thought I should have. As you can see from my update post, I got much more read over the weekend when I enjoyed my books more.
It doesn’t help that I’ve not been overly well lately – my BiPap machine is broken and I’ve been given some physiotherapy exercises that tend to leave me in a miserable heap on the floor, which is hardly conducive to reading. That said, I really enjoyed two of the books I read and it did cheer me up a lot 🙂
As for my other goal of three reviews – I didn’t quite make it, but I sort of did, kind of. I got two actual reviews up, for The Fault in Our Stars and King Solomon’s Mines, but then I got an In My Mailbox post up as well. Doing those can often seem like a bit of a chore, so it’s a post up at least!
On the whole, I’m happy with this week and I absolutely cannot wait to read more of Theft of Swords. It’s not much more than I’d read in a normal week, but keeping track of it with you all makes me happy 🙂 I’ll see you all at the next read-a-thon!
So how did you do this week? Did you achieve your reading goals or did life get in the way?
