Planning for Summer Reading | Weekly Snapshot

Here we are - almost at the halfway point of the year. I still remember starting the year with so many plans, and then came a vicious virus to stump everyone. I'm reaching that point where I'm beginning to miss the life that was, while also feeling very unsure about the life that will be.

Last WeekJust another week around here - many more to come, I guess. Last week, a few of the places we frequented pre-virus have reached out saying that they are reopening. While I'm glad they don't need to shutter their doors anymore, we are still opting to stay home as much as possible. There are going to be people outside who can't avoid it, so if we can afford the luxury (or curse, however you want to call it) of staying indoors, then we'll take it. One of the places that reopened is our gym. It's the one place where I can't imagine what social distancing will be like but they are running only half-class sizes for now.

Books on my nightstand

The Passage by Justin Cronin: Ever so slowly, I am moving through this book. I wish I could finish this sooner, but reading the same book for so long makes me miserable.
Stealing Lumby by Gail Fraser: The first Lumby book, Lumby Lines, was a really easy and cozy read that I enjoyed more than I expected to. After a long time, I picked up the second Lumby book, Stealing Lumby, and this book has the same effect on me!
The Game On! Diet by Krista Vernoff and Az Ferguson: Technically, I should be done with this book by now, since I'm doing this game this month. But I still have a couple of the less important chapters to go.

I get frustrated when a book takes so long to finish too so I totally understand. You need to get the audio version to listen to in your car!

I haven't started on some of my chunksters because I have so much catching up to do and if I get bogged down in a humungous book I won't accomplish anything LOL

The Passage is supposed to be worth the time though :-)
Have a great week and happy reading!

I'm looking forward to The Passage but I understand getting behind on everything else during a big book.
