Finding the time to read…

I have managed to read 121 books this year, so I know that I have no real right to complain about this, but… I’m finding it so hard to find time to read lately!

To be fair, life has been crazy – I’m recently engaged and have been spending time planning my engagement party and booking in wedding dress consultations. Add that to full-time work, friends, family, and everything else that pops up, there literally aren’t enough hours in the day.

Last month I read ten books. This month I’ve only read two!

Can’t life just slow down a little so I can lay in bed and read for a few days?

Anyone else ever feel like this?

Six Books I Can’t Wait To Get My Hands On!

A few years ago I used to read everything. I’d pick up every single book that touched my fingers and give it a go. I was also receiving a lot of ARCs from publishers (as all new and excited book bloggers do), so I’d read everything that appeared in my mailbox.

Now days I am WAY more picky. I generally only pick up a book if:
– The ratings and reviews on GoodReads are good.
– I’ve been following the author religiously and have heaps of their books.
– I’ve read one book from the author and am intrigued to see if the next will be just as good.

I follow a lot of the above authors on Facebook/Twitter etc, so I always know when they have something new coming out. And at the moment, I can’t wait to get my hands on the following titles!

Without Merit by Colleen Hoover – October 3
Play On by Samantha Young – September 12
The Outskirts by TM Frazier – September 17
Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas – September 5
Hideaway by Penelope Douglas – September
Fallen Heir by Erin Watt – August 28

What books are you guys looking forward to?
