THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you find yourself reading more or less as the school season starts?

I know not everyone has kids but there are a variety of reasons why you might change reading when the school year starts, I have a friend who just does more once the weather starts to cool down. Myself, I stay about even. I have been behind again this year but since I moved my nook to my office and hooked it to a speaker I have been able to listen more to books on my kindle so that is helping.

I just finished this book and while it reminded me some of Water for Elephants I really liked it.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you steer away from heavy emotional books?

This came up when I was talking with a friend about what book I could read to keep my mind off the loss of my sweet Dutchy. I don’t usually stay away from the tear jerk-er books, in fact if an author can bring tears to my eyes that is an author I am going to read more of, because happy, sad even mad I like being moved by what I am reading. That being said I was staying away from anything heavier then a Garfield or Calvin & Hobbes as she handed me books. I know she was trying to help but oh so many books were rejected, not her fault of course. In the past I have read deeper novels for sure,Mercy & My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult come to mind as does Good Grief by Lolly Winston (considering reading it again in the future).

I digress, when I noticed what I was doing it got me to thinking and so I asked a few friends. Surprising to me several of them said they purposely didn’t read heavier books, they just wanted to stay away from them in general. I don’t think I make the choice consciously generally only sub consciously most of the time, but I could be wrong. It is something I feel I should look at more in depth at another time.

So what about you? Bring on the musing!

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: What are your feelings on YA? Do you think it is just for young adults or do you think it’s cool full grown adults like it too.

On time this week but I won’t be answering the question myself. I am sorry for that, I just only have enough energy to come up with the question. Saturday my beloved darling cat Dutchy who I have had for 17 years passed away. Finding it hard to cope without her.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION:Do you ever wish you could go back and fall in love with reading all over again?

Late again this week… This is not normal for me I promise. Just have some family stuff going on and it comes first. I won’t be answering my own muse this week. Sorry everyone but I hope those of you who are taking part enjoy the muse.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION:Has a book ever made you crave a specific type of food?

I know I am very late in posting this week. No real excuses to give other then I forgot to schedule a post and the last week yesterday especially have not been fantastic. Sorry about that everyone, I will try not to have that happen again.

Anyways on to the muse.

I know this seems like an odd question but I enjoy comfort food and I find when reading scenes that mention food always catch my attention. There have been several books that end up making me nearly drool with the desire to have some of the food in it. After reading one particularly nice scene that talked about a table full of sweet treats had me running to see if I had any pie to have.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION:Which ending of your favorite series did you truly enjoy but think the author ruined the ending?

OH there are several of these for me. If I had to pick just one, I would say it boils down to the Southern Vampire Mysteries i.e True Blood series. The show at least didn’t make me hate the ending, the book series though well frankly I will never ever forgive the Author for it. Not only was the ending a complete hash, the “follow up” little novella made it worse. Like it was a half assed way to try and not only make more money but try and fix some of what fans were having a fit about.

So how about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Are you able to read when your in pain or do you find it hard to focus?

I suffer from Fibro and end up with high pain levels from it and some other things if I am not careful (like sensitive teeth thanks genetics) so I have a lot of time to think about this one. For me it depends on how bad the pain is. If if I am on the upper end of my pain register I want to read and distract myself from the pain but it is just not happening. It tends to be a curl up and just stare blankly at things type of situation. If things are only moderate I can usually focus on reading for a little bit. How about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: What is your favorite spot to read during the summer?

Well all have our favorite spots to read. I don’t know about anyone else but my favorite spots tend to change around the season and weather. I adore reading outside but summer in Tucson is very bad for that most days. My favorite reading spot in the summer tends to be on a couch with a fan looking out a large window. How about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Which would you rather live without? Books or chocolate.

For me this is the impossible choice! I just I love my chocolate but I love my books. I love to eat my chocolate while reading my books. LOL how about you?

In other news for musing Monday I started a re-read of the Saxon Series by Bernard Cornwell. I always liked the series but now I admit I am enjoying the actual face of Uhtred better then the one I conjured in my head for this one, lol. Alfred still annoys me though, probably always will.

Destiny is all…..

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Have you ever read a book where you needed more answers to the story? Where maybe the ending was just way to open ended and you wanted to yell a the author about it? What book was it?

Since I have been revisiting some series books lately I started thinking about some books that aren’t series stories. Have you ever come across one or two that really were not the ending you wanted? Or maybe it was a series and the ending of the series was just not something you felt brought proper closure? I have actually read several stories that I just sighed and felt like it wasn’t really fully finished. One of those for me was the Twilight Series, I really didn’t like how that series was ended. Yes, I read them all and yes I am a fan even though I can admit they aren’t the best written books ever which is probably why the end makes me miffy. Along with the battle that never happened they ended just felt rushed to me. But that is of course just me.
