Time for another edition of Reshelved in which I share what books I’ve put down lately and which ones I sadly had to take back to the library unread! Check out past Reshelved posts here!
It’s been quite a while since I’ve done one of these posts. I haven’t been putting down a lot of books lately! So the ones I’ve put down were pretty much because I was reaaaally struggling to get into them or, in the case of one, a “not in the mood for this” kind of thing.
Preacher Book 1 by Garth Dennis and Steve Dillon: I was really excited to start this comic after I heard that AMC was making it into a show. I got about halfway in and I was just not into it at all. I think it’s going to make an interesting show but I just couldn’t get myself excited about the comic even though I thought the plot was fairly interesting. I’ll be checking out the show but I think I won’t continue on with the comics.
Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas: I was so stoked about this fairytale retelling but I had the hardest time finding myself getting into it so I would delay picking it up when I had any reading time. It was just ridiculously boring when I was expecting this dark and awesome retelling. I wasn’t into the characters much either.
Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto: This one isn’t one I put down because I wasn’t into it or didn’t like it but just I wasn’t at all in the mood for this type of book. It’s a mishmash of genres and normally I’m into that but I just was feeling like I wanted something else. I definitely plan on getting back to this one because it was it’s like this awesome mix of a Western and fantasy and all sorts of other cool stuff.
Went Back To The Library Unread
(not because I didn’t WANT to read them but I stink at reading things when I’m supposed to)
I have done SOOOOO well with my library books lately! I’ve been so proud of myself because I only have one book I returned unread in the past 6 months — and I’ve gotten quite a few books out!
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara : I was SOOOOO excited to read this one. I was on the waiting list for FOREVER and then it finally came in….at a bad week. I was sooo busy and it’s a thick book and I just didn’t have the time to read it. I plan to add myself back to the list soon but I may just end up buying it so I can take my time with it.
Did you feel differently about any of the books I put down? Or maybe feel similarly and also put it down?
