Lady Audley’s Secret read-a-long post
I’ve decided it’s the book’s fault.
So you’ll be glad to hear that today’s post will be much less whiny than Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s. I still spent the morning volunteering in a hugely chaotic office, the afternoon chasing up violent offenders and the evening poking at admin on my laptop but I’m in much better spirits.
I actually got a little reading done too. Obviously I’ve been very busy (which I may or may not have mentioned… *cough*) but I’ve realised that I’m just not clicking with The Haunted Book. I mean, it’s fine but I don’t really have a strong urge to continuously read it.
I know this because this evening I suddenly realised that I hadn’t read the allocated reading for the Lady Audley’s Secret read-a-long that Alice is hosting this month. I grabbed my book, settled down and the pages just flew by. Perhaps the read-a-thon will go better if I swap books…
I’ve only written one review this week when I’d planned for four, but… did you know I’ve been busy? Tonight I’ve managed to write a post about the Ninja Book Swap (that you should definitely sign-up to) and my read-a-long post, so I don’t think that’s too shabby!
Usually I spend my weekends catching up with work-related admin, but hopefully I’ll be able to make a start tomorrow so I can get some reading and reviewing done. My boyfriend has just bought a new PS4 so he’ll be distracted and I’ll be free to read!
