A quick update

I've slowed down with my reading in the past weeks - I'm just so tired that I fall asleep very early in the evenings and somehow a lot of my reading time has disappeared. But I wanted to tell you that I'm still here and I'm reading your blogs, even if I don't have the energy to do much else.

I hope that I'll be able to tell you about something book-related soon. I have one hour left on the audio version of Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely (which I'm really enjoying) and I'm abaout halfway through reading Meg Rossoff's How I Live now (which isn't exactly what I expected, I'm finding it a very strange book).

I also started reading Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo via DailyLit, but that's going to take me a while to get through!

I hope you're all well and enjoying the summer!

If only we didn't have to sleep. And that work thing gets in the way, too. Ah, well. What's a girl to do? :-) I hope everything else is wonderful for you!

Yeah, the work thing totally gets in the way! I hate my job at the moment actually, which doesn't help energy levels... Hopefully something else will pop up soon! :-)

I know I've been feeling very sluggish lately but in my case it's the weather... Our temps have been in the 100s all week. Really I just can't be bothered to do much with that kind of heat.

Anyway, take care of yourself and rest up!

I'm sorry you're feeling so tired! I've really slowed down this month due to work and time constraits, so I completely understand. Hope all is well with you, Joanna!

I loved The Count of Monte Cristo! Sometimes, you just can't beat the quality of a classic. Most times, actually.

I enjoyed both Wicked Lovely and how I live now. I hope you do, too!

Getting those zzzzzz is very important, so take care of yourself and come back when you can. :)

I have How I Live Now on my TBR Shelf, so I'm curious as to your thoughts.

joanna said...

Wow, I feel so loved! :-)

Iliana - yeah the weather doesn't help either, you're right!

Trish - work really gets in the way of fun stuff, doesn't it? :-)

dolcebellezza - I loved it as a kid and I'm sure I'll love it now too.

Kailana - they're looking good so far!

Joy - as I get older I appreciate zzzzzzz's a lot more!!
