Reading With Chuckles


I have renamed my TBR Reading Challenge and changed it back to Reading with Chuckles as it sounds better, especially at times when I have no specific challenge running. So this is where I'll share what I read and abandoned each week, and I'll give the odd update on the state of my poor TBR! It does suffer at times...! The link under the book takes you to the Goodreads page for that book so you can decide whether to read it, and see my reviews when they are posted.

With my computer being out of action last weekend, I was sooo stressed and just didn't feel like reading at all, which was disappointing! I ended up watching TV until about Thursday so I never really got started on the books until the end of the week. I did look at a few but most were abandoned, sadly. I hope for better things this week. The Iron Witch was a reread to see if I wanted to finish the series, as I no longer bother reading YA. I was disappointed with Deep Thaw. I loved the first book in the series but the next two have been disappointing. I hate that!

  1. I also have had a slow reading week. I finished one week and struggled through another which I am almost finished with. It's a shame when a series starts off good and then goes downhill.

    1. Yeah it is disappointing isn't it? It makes it harder to finish books if you gradually feel the series is going downhill. Hopefully we'll both have a better reading week this time!

    1. Yeah, it was one of those weeks where none of the books grabbed me and made me want to finish them. Better luck this week!
