Bout of Books 16: Midweek Update

Bout of Books
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

I think I've been pretty productive in my bookish world these past few days.  Finished up Prince Joe in spite of my quibbles.  Breezed through a Pamela Clare book (Pamela Clare!!!) without really knowing how long it is in terms of page count (although if we go by Kindle book location length (~4000 loc), I'd say it's roughly between 250 to 300 pages, even though it actually felt a bit longer than that--took me around 7 hours to finish reading with some breaks in between.  Then I knocked out the second Tall, Dark & Dangerous book with time to spare to finish up Secondhand Spirits.

But after that, things slowed a little and I've been dragging with These Broken Stars--I'm not really getting into it, but I hope things will pick up soon.  Then again, I've got my mind on wanting to read something, so maybe I'll start on a different book for the time being.
