The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 2-28-16

Sunday Post

leap-into-books-2016Happy day-before-Leap-Day! And in celebration of Leap Day, be sure to enter the Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop.

This week suffered from schedule-fall-apart. Again. I’m so grateful to Amy for stopping by with a guest review to help me out. I really enjoyed The Defender, but it weighs in at a hefty 656 pages. It was also a bit denser than my usual fiction. So, it took me longer than just one overnight to read. And after being serious with both The Defender in one way and Cat Shout for Joy in another, I just couldn’t do another serious book. Not that Prince’s Gambit isn’t fiction, but the themes get pretty dark, as exemplified by the first book in that series, Captive Prince. I think I’ll wait awhile before picking that back up again.

It’s not that it doesn’t look good, it’s that I’m just not feeling it right now. Does that ever happen to you with your reading?
