Well, I again didn’t finish the book I was supposed to do yesterday. In my defense, the book didn’t appeal to me much. I wanted to like it but couldn’t! I won’t say that I hated it but instead it’s just not for me. The ending was good but the plot of The other side of midnight by Sidney Sheldon has a war background and that has never interested me much.
I wasn’t even able to complete half the book yesterday. I rather decided on getting some sleep. That was quite an odd sleeping schedule. I went to sleep at around 6 pm and faked a headache so my mom would let me sleep. 😛 (Evil! 😛 )
Then today I woke up at 2 am, my internal alarm clock loves striking at odd hours. I started reading and was done with it by 11:45 am. I sat there deciding how much I liked the story. Debating on all sorts of things that make me like a book.
After I finish reading a book the first thing I do is rate it on goodreads with the feeling of the book still fresh in me. I debated over giving it a 3 star. I hit the 3 stars and before saving it I paced my room. I gave 3 star to the book I read before this and I clearly enjoyed that better than this one, that was Rage of Angels. So, unwillingly I gave it 2 stars. It felt bad to do so. To be honest I didn’t have much expectation from the book, given its summary on goodreads but it being on my list was a good reason to read apart from it being written by Sidney Sheldon and I don’t regret it. My expectation was based on Sidney Sheldon’s writing. I guess marathoning Sidney Sheldon’s books made me too familiar to his style that I felt disappointed with the last two books I read after reading a wonderful book by him.
But the feeling didn’t last long. As soon as I started with the last book of this month, that is Master of the games, I was captivated. ❤
I am 20% through this book and enjoying it. Because of my interest in it, it is going to be a fast read. I had to force myself to take a break and write a post.
I will leave you guys here till midnight so that I can complete that interesting story and post a July Wrap Up because in August I will be participating in my first Book-a-thon and want to update my wrap up before I post about it. 🙂 🙂
I failed! 😥 😥
Yesterday, I was supposed to complete reading A Stranger in the Mirror by Sidney Sheldon. I say yesterday because it is already 2 hours into today. How this happened, you ask?
Simple… I’VE NO FREAKIN’ CLUE!
I wasted my morning watching cake decorating videos and the whole night before that too. Why did I do that? I DON”T KNOW! I DON”T EVEN BAKE! The only time I baked a cake was three years ago for christmas, THAT’S IT!
(Although, I must admit all my friends loved it and still mention it. That’s a proud moment for me! 😉 😀 )
I read through the day and then around 6 pm decided that a bath would feel good and then heaven knows what struck me, I decided to get under the sheets for a few minutes with towel still wrapped on my head and started reading. I was too damn comfortable and you can guess what happened… I FELL ASLEEP!
I woke up just now, with towel still perfectly wrapped around my head, that is around 1:45 am and as soon as I saw the time I realized I didn’t accomplish my goal and needed to rant and post too. So here I am, killing two birds with a stone! 😉
I need to calm down now and start reading so that I can finish reading the book, that I was supposed to, before dawn and then I will start today’s book. I haven’t decided yet which of 3 remaining books will I be reading today but that’s for later.
I hope you guys don’t do this… if you do… Well, then, welcome aboard! 😛 😛
So, I am done with my today’s quota…. and 50 or so pages from tomorrow’s book too. 😛
I read Are you afraid of the dark? by Sidney Sheldon and read some pages of A Stranger in the mirror, which, hopefully I will be done with, tomorrow.
Not exactly, I don’t dance. 😛
So, 4 days left from tomorrow to complete my July to-be-read list and 4 books left. Yesterday I decided to read one book each day to accomplish my goal and I am very happy that I have started following it because as you already know, I am not a fan of plans.
I could have read more of the book that I was supposed to read tomorrow, actually today because it is already past 12, but I wasted time watching lame videos. Sometimes, I miss the days without internet and sometimes I don’t. 😉
I shouldn’t let my excitement on completing today’s goal get the better of me because I still have 4 days to follow this plan. Let’s see how it goes. I really hope to stay focused. 😛 (That’s one of the things I am bad at. 😛 )
