Added to the Bookshelf – 11/9/14

Notes from Melissa

We are well into November and well into both Netgalley November and Blog Ahead. I have succeeded in reading two Netgalley books so far (One of which was a Holiday read for the HO Ho Ho Read-a-Thon) and am in the middle of a third right now. Unfortunately, I have not had much success with Blog Ahead…Yet. As of this moment I have my usual zero scheduled posts….meaning that tonight I will be writing my post for tomorrow. So bad. I rarely have any time for reading or blogging during the work week and the few spare hours that I had yesterday, I devoted to reading. I have a busy day ahead…but hopefully this evening I will be able to churn out more than just my post for tomorrow and finally start getting ahead.

      I enjoyed The Casual Vacancy but didn’t completely love it! And I’m still not sure what I think of the end!

      I think I am out of my slump yes! It was more a life slump…too much time needed for other things and not enough time to feel the energy needed to read or blog!

  1. I can relate, I don’t blog much during the week either as work often takes up most of my time- I usually have to get stuff ready on the weekends. Good luck with the readathon, and your new reads look good. The Trollope version of sense and Sensibility looks interesting.

      Thanks Greg…Work and real life can definitely make blogging a challenge but it is more than worth it! And yes…I’m loving the look of the Trollope book; can’t wait to dig in!
