Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits. • Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s). • What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it. • Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us! • Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
Happy Monday Everyone! Here is my Musing for this Monday!
hmm…what to discuss.. I think I’ll talk about a reading habit this week – if you guys know what i’m talking about, chime in! Love to hear your feedback!
My most annoying reading habit since becoming a blogger is my TBR list and how insane I have grown it.. Since I can see books on Netgalley and Edelweiss and know what’s coming down the pike, I request them and then magically there they are on my kindle.. At first it was super magical and awesome, and trust me it still is! But now i’m dealing with a TBR list that is unmanageable – and overwhelming to be honest. I have over 50 books on my TBR list right now, not including the ones I have bought myself to add to the list. I love blogging and I LOVE reading and I just don’t want it to ever become a chore, and having too many books is NOT a problem – but I think I need to learn to better manage it.. Any tips would be amazing! Right now I’m on a hold up – not adding anything else until i get a plan to review what I have already — and again – 100% not complaining about the over abundance of books, I’m lucky for that matter! My annoyance is more with myself and for choosing so many and not considering the time to read and review each one, and I truly want to be fair to the authors. So, my solution is this for now, and again PLEASE post any suggestions if you have them(!): I will not purchase or request any further books at the moment, and I’m going to start scheduling reviews for my blog to give myself dates, and ETAs to get this done — Needing to schedule reviews is new and exciting and means I must be doing something right ot get these books to review, right? I think so – so that’s the plan and I’m sticking to it — Sorry for the ramble.. Hope everyone has an awesome Monday! Since I didn’t inlcude anything from a book here – thought I’d include a quote from the book I just finished: “Tangled” By Emma Chase – if you don’t have it – get it NOW! It’s hilarious and wonderful writing and an awesome POV. See ya!
Quotes (Please note there are 5 quotes below – the first being my favorite and I think this shows how hilarious this book is.. If you don’t laugh at this guy’s insane thoughts, not sure what would make you laugh then – but anyway it has adult language so be warned!) from “Tangled” By Emma Chase:
“Edward Cullen can take his stupid heroine and OD on it. Kate is my own personal brand of Viagra.”
“You ever seen A Christmas Story? You know toward the end when Ralphie beats the ever-loving shit out of the bully? I hope to God you’ve seen it. Because then you’ll know exactly what I mean when I say I’m about to go real fucking Ralphie on this son of a bitch.”
“I once heard my mother tell my father that she shouldn’t have to explain why she was pissed. That if he didn’t already know what he’d done wrong, then he wasn’t really sorry for it. What the fuck does that even mean? Newsflash, ladies: We can’t read your thoughts. And frankly, I’m not entirely sure I’d want to. The female mind is a scary place to be.”
“No man wants to f*ck a skeleton-and nibbling crackers and water like a prisoner of war at dinner isn’t attractive.”
“Fine’s a funny word, don’t you think? I don’t think there’s another like it in the English language that says so much while actually saying so little.”
Hope those leave you laughing! Happy Monday!
