So I would like to hear from other busy family people. If you liked to read before (significant others, kids, careers etc) do you still find time to read now, as much as you'd like? Now that my daughters are older, I'm finding it a tiny bit easier to sneak in some book time, but it's still rare.
I often try to read before bed. That is never a good idea, as I drift off after about 10 minutes, unless it's a really (and I mean amazingly, crazy, super) riveting read. I found the Game of Thrones series great for putting me to sleep - not because it wasn't interesting (I actually loved the series!) but because it was complicated and so many things were going on over so many books I really had to be awake to focus on it all!
On my quiet Wednesdays I can usually carve out an hour, at least, to read whatever I like. This week it will be this book (to be reviewed as No Rest For The Wicked - watch for that to appear in the next week or so!) and I hope to make a sizeable dent in it. I'd love to finish reading it for the weekend.
In my previous (before kids) life I could polish this little book off in about 2 days. I don't think that will happen this week. When my husband saw it he joked I could read it in one sitting. It's true there was a time I could, but that time is not now.
Hi Jess, Thanks so much for agreeing to review No Rest For The Wicked. This is one of fifteen copies that I had printed before I signed with Forsaken - enjoy your rare book. :)
All the best, Dane Cobain
How fun is that?? If my review of this book makes him an international superstar, I'll have a super rare pre-publisher copy!
So needless to say, I'm super stoked to read this book. It better be good, I don't want to have a write a bad review! But I don't want to start reading it until I know I have some serious time to devote to reading. Occasionally I have a tough time getting into a story, and I don't want that to be the case here.
How do you find time to read in your busy family lives? Short of going outside to read on the deck, I find it hard to fit reading into the daylight hours. Well, unless I'm at work where I can read on my breaks. But then it's getting through a book in 15 minute chunks which isn't ideal (at least for me and my reading style). And then I often have 2 books (at least) on the go, one at work and one at home, which can cause it's own confusion if they're similar at all.
Well, wish me luck setting aside time to get lost in my new book. And watch for my review sometime in the next week. I'm sure I'll enjoy this story, and hopefully you'll enjoy my review of it as well!
