My Book Habits & Seven Books I Still Haven't Finished [Yet]

With the uncovering of a deeper story embedded illusion Books- A Recover of a Life Long Love I decided to look to my shelves and take a look at what I have been attempting to read over the past Six months. I was surprised to notice a few things about each of the books I was reading and today I am going to share with you the last line of each of the books I am currently reading, will be starting again and which ones I will put on the top of my pile. First though lets take a look at some of my bookish habits...

As an avid reader at heart I will admit that there is some eye rolling going on in my creative space. I used to be a reader who could knock out 80 books a year and yet if you asked me what I can remember about those books I can tell you little about them.

I don’t really like the term T.B.R [to be read] because it induces this weird fear in me that I will never get the damn pile down to a manageable selection. [Which to be honest I never will] I prefer just to call it my reading pile. My reading pile at present consists of around five plastic crates full of books and a room with a three bookshelves mostly filled with Non-Fiction books.

Let’s not even mention my Kindle...okay maybe I will...WE HAVE NO SECRETS HERE. I have had two Kindles in my life span as an electo nerd and the last one held upwards of 600 unread books, thankfully my new Kindle holds only 130.  I love my Kindle almost as much as I love my physical copies, but not enough that I could ever go 100% digital.

I used to be a Booktuber and reviewed books for publishing companies like Penguin, Carina Press and Harlequin Teen alongside Austin Macauley and other Indie authors. I ended up leaving the community and reviewing because this damn TBR pile got out of hand and I was buying more books than reading them. I also am a slow reader and can usually only read one book a week. [Finish]

I can read multiple books at once; in fact I prefer it that way. When I just read one I end up getting twitchy. This is due to me being a mood reader and my tastes change dramatically. I also read a lot of series and by read a lot of series I mean start the first book of about 100 series and forget about the second. The only full series I have actually finished to date is the Born Wicked Trilogy by Jessica Spotswood.

I want to acknowledge The Bards Lament for inspiring the idea around book sentences in her recent post. To be read - First Sentence Showdown
