October Wrapup 2012

Oh boy. Well at least I read two books this month.  Life's been crazy busy and I've been stressed and depressed. I'm sorry to all my blogging friends. Excuse my absence around here and on your own blogs. I'm not giving up but I need a break. :( Anywho, Here's the two books I read this month.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E Smith
Cute and fun with just a touch of depth.

Odd Apocalypse by Dean Koontz 
Weird and creepy but, oh, how I LOVE Odd.


Yep, that's it. And I liked them both. So I guess if you only manage two books in a month but you love them both then it's not too shabby. Am I right? ;)

  1. I count it a good month when I read 2 books that I like....lately I count it good if I read any 2 books....not counting "take home books" with my kindergartener...though I might start counting those...Maybe I'll start a book review blog dedicated to those...Today's would be on Daniels Pet by Alma Flor Ava....or maybe I'll just start work on getting at least 7 hours sleep.

    1. Yeah, I'd just work on getting more sleep. Wish I could get more myself.

  2. Definitely a good thing, if you liked both the books you read. It's becoming harder for me to like the books I'm reading lately, as you know. Best of luck pulling out of the stress!

  3. Hey, you liked every book you read this month! Those are great odds. :)
    Sorry life is so crazy right now. I hope things calm down for you soon.

  4. Sorry to hear you've spent the month stressed and depressed. That's not a good combo :( Hopefully, things start getting better soon. Thinking of you :)

  5. Blogging and reading breaks are definitely needed from time to time. At least you liked the two books you read in October. :)

  6. 2 good books are worth more than 10 bad ones, so yeah, you did good. Hope November shapes up better for you, over all. ;)

    1. Yes, considering I usually read about 8 books and only like two I figure this is a good thing.

  7. We all need a break from time to time. I hope things perk up for you soon <3

  8. If you're only going to read 2 books in a month at least they were good ones! I'll be starting Odd Thomas soon so get ready!

    Don't worry about taking a break, we all need breaks occasionally and forcing yourself to read/blog/whatever is not the answer. Things will get better soon.

    1. Yeah, I was trying to force myself and it was making it worse. I'm really excited to see what you think of Odd. :)

  9. Not to shabby at all. And sometimes... you need a break.

  10. Any month spent with Odd is a successful month! I really hope the Odd Thomas movie does the books justice!

    1. I'm dying for that movie to come out. I want to know what it'll be like but I'm very nervous too.

  11. You are right!

    How are you feeling these past few days anyway? Any better? Do you see the end of this slumpy dumpy place yet? I hope so!!!

    1. I have no idea. The foreseeable future isn't looking so bright right now. :(

  12. Sorry that you're still in a reading slump. Wish I could help you get out of it! Maybe watch lots of TV??? I'm sorry that's the best I've got. I'm getting the seasonal depression too. Maybe we should all do Yoga.

    1. That's exactly what I'm doing...watching TV.

  13. I can totally relate to what you're going through Jenny. When you're working full time coming home and feeling like you have to blog feels like more work. Take a break. It'll do you good. 2 books is a lot better than I did!

    1. Yeah, I know you understand. Phew! At least someone does. I just wish I didn't feel this way. :(

  14. We all need a break now and then. I'm so glad that you liked the books you did get a chance to read :) Feel better soon.

    1. Thanks. I'm glad I liked the books too.

  15. Heck, I'd rather read 2 great books that 4 mediocre books! :)

    So sorry to hear you're in a slump, but I totally understand. I was in a slump for like 3 years after I had my baby. Hang in there and please know that you are sincerely missed!

    1. Thank you so much. It's nice to know I'm missed.

  16. I'm glad you enjoyed your two books. Sometimes I feel like I read 10 bad books for every good book, and then I get into a slump.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm going through my own reading/blogging slump at the moment too, and I also only managed to get two books read last month. And one of those was a short story! Hopefully things will pick up for us both a bit this month :)

    Quality and quantity each have something to recommend them! =)

    Reading only two books but really liking both of them has its own special flavour . . . as, perhaps, reading six books and panning all of them would be another interesting twist. I do like your monthly wrapups!
