Weekly Reading List #102

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there people of the page. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I’m still backlogged on books, working hard to make sure I stay on top of them and that my book reviews don’t suffer either. Although they tend to when I do them last minute and in a rush. But I’m working on remembering to take a breath and just take everyday ass a new day. I feel like I’ve been rushing through my life lately, just with books and my reviews. So, even though I’m backlogged I’m just going to take a small step back and breathe.

So, on that note, check out my new reading list.

Weekly Reading List #101

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there people of the page. So, it turns out that I have once again become backlogged on books. I have until Sept 2 to read 4 books. I’ve knocked one out of the park (these are ARCs with expiration dates btw) and I’m in the middle of two at the moment. I’m saving the longest for last while I go through these two, using every spare moment, my sleepless nights (I’m an insomniac) to read, read, read. I guess it’s a good thing I have finished prelim edits on my novel. I printed out a copy for myself so that I can go over formatting and editing issues that will no doubt need to be addressed. So, until that arrives in the mail, I plan on using all this free time to catch up on this reading. I’ve also gotten control over my anemia again. I’m not great at taking care of myself and I feel fine most of the time so I don’t take my iron pills but when I crash, boy do I crash. And you know what one of the symptoms of anemia is? Loss of interest. So I was reading slower than usual, spending half my time just being a lazy bum. But I’ve taken my iron pills every day for the past 6 days, getting my iron up as best as possible. And the change is noticeable.

So here you go folks, my upcoming reading list for this week. Since my energy is up, I have no doubt that I will catch up on my reading. At least, that’s the hope. Happy reading!
