Stuck in the Middle Again

I am once again stuck in the middle of several books. Some of them are even the same books I was in the middle of last time this happened. I definitely need to schedule myself some computer free reading time from now on.  I have too many books I want to read, too many reviews I want to write, too many challenges I want to participate in.

 

I have been doing a lot of book lists to see what I have been reading and what I should be reading. Here is one I write a few weeks ago.

  1. Rae by Chelsea Swiggett (currently reading) FINISHED
  2. Boneshaker by Cherie Priest
  3. The Dead Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan (started)
  4. Book I haven’t finished yet (Cherry Heaven, Never Let Me Go, The Iron Heel) FINISHED Never Let Me Go
  5. Grimspace by Ann Aguirre (need to track down)
  6. Perdido Street Station by China MiƩville (audio, saving for steampunk challenge starting Oct. 1)
  7. Incarceron by Catherine Fisher (started)
  8. Epic by Conor Kostick
  9. Exile by R. A, Salvatore (audio)
  10. The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi (group read/steampunk, waiting until Oct. 1)

 

I still really want to read most of these books I have not made process in any of them besides finishing Rae. In the next few days I really want to finish Matched and Hunger, both dystopian YA. I would like to finish Mississippi Trial, 1955 and The Clockwork Three, both by Utah authors.  And there are many more books I would like to be starting and challenges I would like to be working on.  Like before I think that getting a book finished will really help motivate me some, unlike before I am not in a rut, I have just been super busy. It is up to me now to find the time to read even though my life is busier than ever before.

 

Do you have to set aside time to read or does it just fall naturally into your life?
