Halfway through the year already, so crazy! I’m still struggling with finishing anything other than graphic novels and audiobooks. I’ve been trying the read A Court of Frost and Starlight but it’s just not catching my attention. I can’t tell if it’s genuinely boring or if it’s just the act of reading in general. I think I should try different books rather than insisting on trying to finish books I am stuck on.
Summer reading has started, both for my local library and the one I work at. So far it seems like last year was more fun, for my local library they had a whole list of STEM activities that could earn kids points along with reading books but this year they only have a few activities and there is no real theme to it.
I wanted so badly to go to some book signing events this month, there usually aren’t any in my area so two back to back was surprising. The first event for Legendary, I ended up helping my mom out by watching my brother who just had dental surgery. The next day was a book signing for I’ll Be Gone in the Dark with Patton Oswalt. It sounded so cool but then I kept hearing more and more about the event and it sounded like it was going to be so crowded. People were planning to line up at 3pm for wristbands given out at 5pm for a 7pm signing. Plus HBO was going to be filming along with news crews… My anxiety was off the charts just reading about how crowded it would be so I decided against it. It made me sad because I would have loved to go and blog about it but I was just not going to be able to handle that.
Here’s what I read this month:

I’ve also hit halfway for my goodreads goal this year, right now I don’t think finishing that challenge will be a problem.
This month I’ve got to get my shit together and finish something that’s not an audiobook or graphic novel. I did read one parenting book in May but I don’t count that as much.
