Catching Up with Reading and Blogging

It’s been almost a month since my last update here. Forgive me but I am just too busy with the other part of my life lately, doing a lot of travelling and exploring. Still I don’t leave any single chance to read, though. I always bring my Kindle with me wherever I go. May it be beaches, mountains or just anywhere I went. Problem is since I’m too ecstatic with my travel adventures I could not focus on writing any book review for the life of me. Sometimes things are just too much to handle at once.

Now, I’m trying to catch up updating, reading, and blogging. I won’t bother you all discussing my travel adventures because even if I try I’m sure I won’t be able to write those coherently. There are things that are just too much to share. So let me update you instead with my reading lists, after all this is a book blog right?

Since my last book review post, Rapture by Lauren Kate. I managed to finished reading eight fictions titles, one is The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg and the complete seven books of Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. Currently I’m reading three titles from different genre. One is The 360 Degree Leader Workbook: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization by John Maxwell which is way overdue already. The other one is The Elephant Vanishes: Stories by Haruki Murakami and the last one and my priority read for today The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I’m hoping to finished reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower before I see the movie adaptation this weekend. I actually started it last night but I ended reading only the first chapter before I fall asleep. Hopefully I can get back reading it tonight after the party I needed to attend to.

My next reads after I finished the three books above will include another J.K. Rowling book, which is her latest novel, The Vacancy as well as Mitch Albom latest novel, The Time Keeper. These two books are part of my most awaited title list before their released on the market. Other than these there are few books that are part of my required reading such as Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins for the read along this coming October 1st, The Man Painter by Melissa Turner Lee for review, and some PM books for works. 

Other than reading and blogging I’m also behind with the latest news and books releases. I haven’t hit any book stores for quite awhile and I haven’t much online too, so please so update me via comments below about what the things I’ve missed when I’m gone.

    1. Embers & Echoes? I thought that was released few months ago or it is a different book?

      Yep, I finally read the whole HP series. After watching again every HP films on DVD I finally give in with the books. It’s a nice experience actually. A bit different than my usual style of books first before movies.

      I’ve read only the synopsis of The Casual Vacancy from goodreads and honestly based on that synopsis the book isn’t that enticing to read. I’m just really curious how J.K. Rowling will get back after the HP series.

      I haven’t pick up yet Sweet Evil and it’s already halfway of the first week of the read along. I hope I’ll be able to read the required pages on time 🙂

      Lastly, I’ve seen your STS and I can only envy you for having all those great books, especially the signed copy of BIW by RV.

  2. Maybe you should set up a traveling blog? 😉 In the past few months, I’ve noticed how convenient an e-reader can be, to carry around everywhere. It has its own place in my reading “life”, just as audiobooks do.

    I hope that The Casual Vacancy and The Time Keeper will both turn out to be enjoyable reads 🙂

    1. Actually, I tried posting my travel experiences before in my journal blog but for some reason I can’t write much about my travels. Most of the time I’ll just end up posting more photos than describing my travel details.

      E-readers are really convenient as well as audiobooks. Though I limit buying audiobooks since they are a bit pricey compare to eBooks and I finished faster if I read than listen to audiobooks.

      I haven’t start reading The Casual Vacancy & The Time Keeper yet. When I’m done I’ll try to let you know if they are good 🙂
