Reading progress update: I've read 121 out of 337 pages.
Misery - Stephen King

Moral of this story, folks: don't drink and drive.

 

All of this could have been avoided if Paulie hadn't gotten hammered.

October Wimpy Challenge
Misery - Stephen King

I looked and looked for a group read that actually had a book I owned on it. Didn't come up with much, since like I've stated before, I'm working on mostly older book. Very rarely do I buy new releases....although they tease me from their shelves every time I'm at Target.

 

But I found a group doing a Spooky Reads list for October and they had a lot of Stephen King on it. And I'm all like "Hey! I have some Stephen King books!" So I'm going to read Misery as my October Wimpy Challenge entry. It's as close to a group read as I can come. I might be social here with you guys, but I'm not "group read" or "buddy read" social. I actually suffer from paralyzing social anxiety and it even hampers my online activity.

 

I'm a dork. With issues. I know.

 

Anyway, so that's that! Yay!

Wimpy Challenge Catch-up
The Luxe - Anna Godbersen
Outlander - Diana Gabaldon
Flowers in the Attic - V.C. Andrews
Forever Mine - Elizabeth Reyes
A Game of Thrones - George R.R. Martin

Since I moved into my new house, I've been neglecting my Wimpy Challenge duties. So here goes nothing:

 

July: Whittle TBR Mounds

The Luxe: Because I had it on my Kindle for months and finally decided to knock it out. It was so shallow and easy to figure out. But for some morbid reason, I want to finish the series. It also helps I keep finding the books on clearance at Half-Price Books.

 

August: Buddy Read-along

Um.....well, I failed here. I don't really do buddy-reads. I have buddies. I just don't tend to read what others are reading. Most people are reading current books, and I'm still working my way through older books. It's like I'm trying to make up for lost time, when I was newly married and worked 2 jobs and books were like "haha! Bills to pay, bitch!"

 

But I'm counting Outlander since the show aired which gave me the kick to read to book. Along with so many other women. So that counts right? Well, I'm making it count.

 

 

September: What He/She Said

Flowers In The Attic: This is my mom's all-time favorite book, so I finally pulled it up on my Kindle. And whoa. Not only was I surprised by mom's taste is books (incest, mom? RLY?) I was enthralled with the entire plot. Yes, it's was sick and CPS really should have existed strictly for this reason. But I just can't help it. I already bought the next in the series, Petals on the Wind.

 

Special Runners-up

Forever Mine for July. It was horrible and I hated it, but it was technically in my TBR cache. Yuck. I wanted to wash my eyes with bleach.

 

Game of Thrones for September since my husband harped on my until I finally read the damn brick. It was good, don't get me wrong. But it was huge and exhausting.
