Top Ten Books That I’d Play Hooky With
I have been so busy with work that I’ve seriously fallen behind with reading (and blogging – hi, I miss you all!), so here are the books I really wish I could take the day off to read.
I really can’t believe I haven’t read these yet…
• The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
• Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
• Ten by Gretchen McNeil
I was eagerly looking forward to these books, sure that I would read them immediately, love them, etc. I acquired them and…they’ve sat around. Instead of actually giving them a go, I either fall asleep (WORK SUCKS) or pick up something else and it’s like WHYYYYYYYYY. I want to love these books and hopefully I will when I have more time available.
I need more time to commit to these…
• Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
• The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
• A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin
Sadly work has kept me so busy that I’ve actually gone entire weeks without reading, so anything that I’ve actually been able to pick up have been pretty quick reads. Which I know these are not. Either emotionally or page wise (or BOTH), I know I don’t have the time to fully immerse myself in these books so they will have to wait a while longer though I REALLY want to read them.
Upcoming books I would take time off for…
• Boundless by Cynthia Hand
• The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead
• Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
I’m usually very careful with my PTO, but I would TOTALLY use some to spend the day with these books without interruption.
Should I call out sick for any of these books? Link me to your TTT and I will check it out!
