I struggled to get some good reading done today. I think I only got about an hour of reading Ninefox Gambit in today and that is not great. I just was totally tired today after an intense work out this morning and a lack of sleep last night. I ended up watching Supergirl on Netflix when I came home and falling asleep after dinner. Obviously, this is totally alright. Everyone has these type of nights where their body or mind just isn’t cooperating with their desire to read a lot. We can’t beat ourselves up over lost chances of reading more, there are so many more important things in life than chastising ourselves for not reading enough. I’m hoping I can make up for it tomorrow by getting a good night’s sleep tonight and getting up right away when my alarm goes off in the morning. Along with making my last 2 minutes of my shower cold water to increase my resistance to acute stress, I really am focusing on getting up and moving as quickly as I can in the morning to get stuff done. It is so hard not to look at social media when I first wake up and waste 10minutes.
Anyway, Cheris and the swarm are fighting their first battle at the moment in Ninefox Gambit. This is around the part of the book where I kind of didn’t connect to it completely the first time around, the fighting. I was and am much more interested in Jedao’s background and Cheris’ response to him. Here is hoping the “action” parts of the story make more sense to me this time around.
Books that were released today that I’m interested in reading:
Adrift by Rob Boffard
Brief Cases by Jim Butcher (That name is amazing btw)
The Book of M by Peng Shepherd
Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuire (How does she write so much!?!)
