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?

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?

It’s that time of the year again… I’m off to my next overseas destination!
I’ve been really lucky to be traveling twice a year lately…
2015 – America in May / Fiji in October
2016 – Bali in May / Vanuatu in October
And this May I’m off to Hawaii!
See you all back here at the end of the month!
