It’s Monday, April 25th. What Are You Reading?

Brief Lessons Desert

Oh, hello. Remember when I was pumped for the Readathon and then disappeared for two days? Yeah, that migraine wasn’t gone, not by a longshot. I spent most of Saturday sleeping in my dark bedroom trying to open my eyes without dying and yesterday catching up (including a trip to buy new bedroom furniture), so the weekend wasn’t quite the reading extravaganza I had hoped for.

Even though I’m bummed about missing the fun of Readathon, I did manage to squeeze in a wee bit of reading around feeling awful. I started Saturday morning with Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and good intentions to read all day, but I just barely made it through those 97 pages. Sunday had me feeling better with a bit more reading time, so I finished up The Gunning of America and read a bit more of Dear Fang, With Love (which deserves all the love). I’m just one story into Desert Boys by Chris McCormick, but super interested in seeing how the rest of the collection will come together.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

  • Irene

    I’m reading The Paris Wife and enjoying it lots! :)
    Sorry you didn’t get to participate as much as you wanted :/

  • Alex (Sleepless Reader)

    Hope you feel better soon! I always make plans to join the Readthon and then life happens!

  • I loathe migraines! I didn’t even participate in the Readathon this year in any capacity. I hope you feel better soon.

    • Ugh, they’re the worst. I haven’t had one in such a long time – of course it would come this weekend. I’m just glad it’s gone, though.

  • I had a migraine one year and it was so disappointing. I’m glad you are feeling better. We missed you!

  • JoAnn @ Lakeside Musing

    Ugh… sorry about the migraine. They are the worst! I missed readathon this time, but already have October on my calendar.

  • Oh my gosh – I’m so sorry! That’s not good timing at all for that migraine! I’m looking forward to your thoughts on Desert Boys and have been kind of eyeing Dear Fang, With Love, so might look more closely at that one!

  • Oh I’m sorry to hear that! Migraines are the worst, mine had unusually good time. Hope you’re recovered now! Dear Fang sounds so great, definitely on my tbr!

    • I started feeling better yesterday, just as everyone else was wrapping up their Readathons ;) But I’m glad it seems to have been such a good time for everyone.

  • Sorry you missed the readathon. It was a good one! Your Book selections look interesting. I’ve added Fang to my TBR list. Enjoy!

  • That’s so frustrating. I’m glad you are feeling better!!

  • olduvai

    Ugh! Migraines are the worst! I only managed to semi-participate this readathon as there was too much going on at home!

    But you’re reading all those pretty books!

  • Oh, what a pity you didn’t feel well! I hope you’re better now. I wanted to spend less time online than at other readathons but overdid that a bit and ended up awol for the second half of the event – reading but not engaging with others. Hopefully, you can be back in full force next time,

  • So sorry you were feeling so crummy. :( I hope your migraine is gone by now! This just means you’ll have to double-down in October. ;)

  • Amanda

    Oh I can’t wait to hear about Dear Fang! I hope you’re feeling much better today!

  • You poor migrainey thing! I hope you’re all healed now! On my end, I’m doing my utmost best not to gobble up all of The Raven King in one go. Oh how I want to read it and oh how I do not want it to end!

  • It sounds like a rough weekend. I’m sorry! I hope you’re feeling better now. I’m between books at the moment (having just finished Eligible). Seven Brief Lessons on Physics looks interesting.

  • Aw, man! I’m so sorry to hear that you were suffering all weekend; I wondered why I didn’t see you hanging out on social media during Readathon. That stinks! I’m glad you’ve started feeling better and have gotten in some reading time; I may have to check out Dear Fang, since I’m running out of books – ha!

  • It lasted all day? That SUCKS!! I’m glad you were feeling better so that the entire weekend was not a wash for you.
