Reading progress update: I've read 249 out of 1024 pages.
Gone With the Wind - Margaret Mitchell

So I read the first 100 pages of this book almost three years ago and am only *just now* getting back to it. To which I say: oops.


I've tried reading this several times and haven't really had a lot of luck with it. But I seem to be doing better this time (maybe I've finally read enough classics that I'm starting to actually get the hang of reading them *crosses fingers*) so hopefully this will be the time I actually finish??


The problem is that I just do not get along with Scarlett O'Hara??? And I can only handle her in short bursts?? I quite love Rhett thus far though and he's starting to appear more so maybe if I can just hang on I'll start liking this one more and actually finish it??


I sure hope so since I'm catching up on book club books right now and this one has been on my 'in progress list' the longest. I'm ready to finish it so, if nothing else, I can finally remove it from the list. *crosses fingers, toes and everything else that I finish it this time around*

Finding forever
Paige in Progress (Reluctant Hearts Book 3) - Brighton Walsh

This is book # 3 in the Reluctant Hearts series.  While this book can be read as a standalone novel, for full understanding and enjoyment for the reader I advise reading the series books in the order intended.  There are inside jokes, and light spoilers to the other books that will be missed if you do not read them in order given.



Paige and Adam meet through mutual friends and have an incredible night together.  Now, months later, she is avoiding him since she still dreams of that night they had.  He seems to be everywhere with their mutual friends, and she is avoiding them also.


Adam is determined to see if there is more to this thing between them.  He also knows she is skittish from the past.  He cannot forget about Paige.  Adam is serious about finding a way to make it work.


This was a book full of surprises.  It was also HOT!  Such incredible depth to the characters and the development for some happens right before the readers eyes.  I loved every page and did not want the book to end.  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Reading progress update: I've read 51%.
Run - Blake Crouch

I have no idea when I actually started reading this book. I want to say it was back in September or October or something like that. But I've honestly been having quite a lot of trouble with it. I'm trying to finish it before the end of January. But it's not really keeping my attention which is upsetting because Blake Crouch is one of my favorite authors.


So I don't really know what is going on with this one? I'm just not super invested in the story or any of the characters or anything like that. And it's taken me months just to get halfway. So hopefully I can finish it in the next couple of weeks and just be done with it. *crosses fingers*

Reading progress update: I've read 86 out of 275 pages.
Beloved - Toni Morrison

So I originally started reading this back in October and really struggled through it. I think I only made it 40 or so pages in?? But I eventually decided that I was just way too busy and that's probably what the problem was. I was getting lost and not really picking up details (and I was so exhausted all the time I would also fall asleep while reading. oops.) and just generally not enjoying it. Not like I thought I should've been, at least.


Now that I'm no longer busy and have free time, I've returned to this one and it's going much better now!!! I'm honestly quite enjoying it. It's a beautiful (and terribly heartbreaking) story and I'm honestly so excited to see where it will lead.


Oh and this is another pick for the 2015 challenge. It's my pick for an author who shares my initials. And since Beloved is featured in 501 Must Read Books, that's why I'm particularly determined to read it, haha.

Reading progress update: I've read 222 out of 317 pages.
Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov

Well this has been a wild ride. This is another book club book and we picked it (rather mistakenly, we discovered, thus proving none of us had any idea what this novel is actually about before reading it???) as our classic romance for the 2015 challenge. We have quickly discovered it is not a romance.


Honestly I'm, well, enjoying is not quite the right word. I'm glad I'm reading this novel. I'll say that. It's beautifully written (even though vexing at times with all the other languages thrown in) and it's really fascinating. But it's also one of the saddest most heart wrenching novels I've ever read in my life. (For section by section views on this matter, feel free to read my posts on my book club blog. Ranting and crying were both happening.)


But I definitely see why it's a classic. And why it's a novel that needed to be written and needs to be read. And I'm even almost done.


All I can say is it's been a wild ride.
