What am I reading? AKA what I’m supposed to be reading but I’m not


It’s about halfway through August already and I still have a ton of books I have to finish. Anybody else have this problem? Granted, I am trying my hand at having tbr lists in the hopes of actually being more productive when it comes to my reading. And it works. Kind of? I still notice myself opening up a new book and finishing that instead of the books on Β my list. Incredibly frustrating because if I don’t write a list, I will go days without reading anything because I don’t know what to start with. Grrr.

If you go to my Goodreads page (please don’t lol) you’ll see this very ambitious list of books in my Currently Reading shelf. There’s 8 of them, you say? Not bad? Well, how about that plus another 6 that I cracked open but refused to add to my shelves because then I can’t deny it anymore *pouts*. I really want to read all of them. But reading + shitty sleep schedule just doesn’t work for me. My brain doesn’t have enough power to even think about thoughts, let alone comprehend written text.

I’ll get to those books, I promise! Before the month ends. I hope.

Anyway, onto the list of what I’m ACTUALLY currently reading:

You guys seeing a pattern here? Out of all I have in my currently reading shelf, only one got to the books I’m actually reading! It’s quite amazing really lol it’s like my brain is just a rebel by heart. I try to add structure it says nah, I let it roam free, it gets mad about not knowing what to do and doesn’t do anything. *sigh*

So far though, these books are pretty good. I guess I’m on a mystery/crime binge with a bit of a supernatural one. Not too bad. I’m crossing my fingers though that I actually finish these three by the end of the week.

How about you guys? How is your reading week going? Any of you hardcore tbr listers or just complete mood readers? Also, any tips on how I can reset my sleep schedule? Comment down below, let’s chat!


Lots of love,

    I did have the same problem haha. I used to make TBRs for myself in a month, instead I find myself opening and reading books that wasn’t in my TBR. So, I decided to quit and just go with whichever title I fancy in.

    But you got to do you, what makes you more comfortable, really. And with that said I wish you the best of luck to conquer these books hahaha! Looking out for nore of your reviews. I love how you read so much horror-thriller-ish books. You’ve been becoming one of my go to for it. 😊

      Right? Sometimes my brain just want to do its own thing. And thank you! I’m trying to branch out to more genres I rarely read (aka romance) and well.. It’s going? Haha I definitely am more drawn to dark or fantasy stories 😊

    I used to read a ton, not so much now… but I’m getting back into it! I just started The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda at the recommendation of a local librarian. So far I’m liking it, high hopes for the future of my book-reading goals πŸ™‚

    Ah man! What a conundrum you have! Usually I am a mood reader and lists will throw me into slumps because my mind says “if you don’t read what you are supposed to read then you can’t pick up a different book but I don’t want to read the book I am supposed to read so I am just not going to read!” or something like that πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
