Books I've read this week
Slowly, little by little I'm getting back into a more normal reading schedule. Technically I am reading a little less than normal; I'm getting some relief from my medication, so I'm now able to knit! I like knitting while watching dvds, so I have been doing more of that. It's a huge deal for me to knit again, it's been 6 months since I had to stop. I can also play video games! I tried 10 minutes the other day, since I thought if I can do one of them, I can do the other. And oh I remember why I love them so much! I've got to be very careful not to overdo it, and I always think that'll be the case. No more 6 hour gaming fests (I have been known to game for 10 hours...). The reason any of that is relevant to this blog, is that when I had to stop those hobbies, the amount of time reading increased. It was something I could do regardless of my health (excluding tiredness).
Remember how I said technically I'm reading less than normal? Well unofficially, I'm reading more. Now that I've (mostly) really cut down on the time I spend on the internet, I save at least 2 hours a day (I'm not exaggerating either). This is especially true in the mornings, since I tend to wake up 4-5am. I get a good hour reading before work (I do other stuff too). So, in theory the amount of books I read shouldn't fluctuate too much :)
On with the books!
Death in the Desert by Jim Eldridge
(Military operation novel, very realistic and believable - there is a content warning for lots of warfare! My review...)
(Total opposite of the above book! Very cute and inspiring too. My review...)
Someday's Dreamers: Spellbound #1 by Norie Yamada & Kumichi Yoshizuki
Manga, Fantasy & Young Adult
(Not the same characters as the anime...it's an okay manga, but a bit clunky in places. My review...)
Pocket Cats: Cat Burgler by Kitty Wells
(aka Lee Weatherly - she's such a spy with all her disguises!)
(This is one awesome series with fab cat powers, and friends working together. My review...)
Runaways by Joe Layburn
