Monday Morning Check-In: Lots of DNF….

I feel like I’m stuck in another loop of DNFing titles lately.  I just can’t seem to find anything that scratches my reading itch.  Two or three review books didn’t work for me and I decided to not review them.  Then I was so excited to try listening to the first book in the Cat and Bones series by Frost and had to abandon that one pretty quick.  Not that I don’t enjoy the series but the narrator just did not work for me.  Her British accent for Bones was going to ruin the character for me.  Instead of a sexy accent, it came off sounding creepy and pretty fake.  Now I know I could not pull off a foreign accent, with the exception of my husband’s on occasion, so I don’t fault the voice artist for trying I simply didn’t want to have that voice in my head any time I decide to return to the series and its spin-offs.

Busy week as I am working the city elections tomorrow and will not be posting a Top Ten Tuesday.  I need to get laundry, dishes, and everything I need for a 15 hour day tomorrow and I wouldn’t mind getting some reading in today as I have a book talk at work next Monday and I’ve not even started the book yet.  It is only about 180 pages so not a big deal but it would be nice to get it read.  I should be back the following week but not really a topic for me as I don’t have kids.  I have thought up a spin on the topic so I won’t be skipping two weeks in a row.

Well have a great week and don’t forget to vote in your city elections tomorrow.  Depending on where you are it will most likely be a slow day for your poll workers.  Going to vote, even if you have uncontested races, gives them something to do and makes the day go faster for them.

Happy Reading!
