I should add, I'm mainly reading AEI's S.E. binders right now... Does that count??

East of one place and west of another.
Currently reading 'Fresh off the Boat' by Eddie Huang.  Going to be realistic and try to read one book a week; if possible.  

It just sucks because I feel like if I stop reading, it's such an effort to get back into it
I have read two this year, so I'm on track to meet last year.  :)   Studying will pick up again soon.

I have heard they are so good that many people read them multiple times.
I'm not much of a repeat reader, but have experience as a repeat P.E. exam taker, much to my disdain. I hope it's not the case for me, but I won't be surprised if it is!

I wish you all the luck so you dont have to read them again.

seriously, if I'm engaged in reading, I can get through 8 books in a month. But as soon as I stop reading for a week, it's difficult to get back into the swing of it. 
Dude.  If I'm engaged in reading/there is an author that I'm super into their writing style, I can easily go through 8 books in a solid weekend.

...I think my lack of reading books is because I'm always reading fanfic.  If I stopped reading fanfic, I'd prob go through waaaaaaaaaaay more books...but fanfic, like 70% of the time, is written so much better than published stuff.

So I started reading a fanfic in late middle school/high school. And the author rewrote the entire HP series, giving Harry a brother so was the golden boy. It was soooo good. But long and I don't love reading on screens. It was also HPxDM fanfic lol

Started a "new" book last night. I was browsing my bookshelves for a non-crime book to read (because I really like having 2 books going). And settled on rereading my fave series: Witches of Eileannan. It keeps popping in my head lately so I'm going with it. I read like 25-30 pages (the first book always takes me the longest and Moo was playing tug on my lap lol)

*hides all my Drarry open windows on my phone*

I think I started reading fanfic when I was like...13?  14?  I mean, it's such an act of love that the authors do by writing so much content for free.  I think fanfic has an interesting writing style, more realistic/less descriptive, which I really enjoy sometimes.

You re-reading series now makes me want to re-read Valdemar books. Or my cheesy romance novel series.  I want some hockey smut.

no judgement from me on HPxDM fanfic so no need to hide it lol

I think the series was called "Lightning on the Wave" in case you wanna go find it. Now that I have a tablet, I might start it again?

I read The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, for my book club. I had some issues with it. The main issue was that I was getting driven crazy, trying to figure out the timeline of things and who the main character was at whatever given time.

I also didn't really like the ending.

I guess it was a relatively fast read for me, though. It was engaging, that's for sure.
Oh man, I'm so sad you didn't like it. I liked all the twisty WTFery bits.

I'm at 5 books for the year already, I tore through the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire.  Read a trashy urban fantasy-romance last night, the other book I have to start this week is Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton.

I'm still at 2, have been organizing and setting up the study station again. Sigh.

Finally got off the waitlist for Evelyn Hardcastle and for some reason I could download the ebook? But I was able to get the audiobook! @MadamPirate PE

YAAAAAAS.

So twisty and good!

I just finished The Perfect Nanny which was super screwed up, and I'm starting Final Girls tonight.
