In my last post I mentioned that I am 4.5 months pregnant and I have gone from reading 3 books on average a week to 1 a sad....its depressing...its got to STOP! Ironically my pregnancy coincided with me getting a second job so I have much less free time to read however part of the problem is I just can't seem to get...hooked by any new authors or novels. I started Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare over a month ago and while its an excellent story I am not devouring it as I had hoped. I have a stack of books I still need to review but I am looking for that something special to get me back into the reading groove. So that's hopefully where my readers come in! If you have read something that enthralled you and that you couldn't put down for even a moment please let me know! My trips to Chapters haven't revealed anything  but maybe my readers will!

Pregnant and Reading

Well its time to reveal that I am pregnant! This is my husbands and my first child and we have waited a long time for this miracle to happen! Pregnancy and working two jobs has drastically impacted my reading for the past 4 months. For the first 3 months I just slept ALL THE TIME! And then I got sick with the flu and couldn't take any medication. So for a woman who averages reading 2 to 3 books a week I have managed to read only 3 books in the past 4 months.....yes its sad I know. While I am still tired and working 2 jobs I hope to finally get back into my reading swing. I have quite a few books I still need to read and review before taking on any new material but on a go forward basis I don't think I'll be reading quite as much as normal! With that said I do hope to be posting a review a week in addition to getting back to posting book covers, author interviews, book news, etc. Thank you all for having patience with me and for not deleting me from your blog roll. Never did I imagine pregnancy would make me this tired or this disinterested in doing my favorite thing (reading of course)!

Hopefully within the next two weeks you will see the pace picking up on The Book Guru!

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday :)

Happy Reading,
