There’s a stage in my reading that I always eventually hit – what do I want to read? I pick up a book that I think I want to read and I’m going strong for however many pages before I get distracted by whatever. The next time I sit down to read, I want to read something else. So I pick up this other book and go for perhaps 10 minutes before putting it down and feeling like something else.
I just can’t find the right book to read!
Currently, I started with By The Pricking Of My Thumbs by Agatha Christie. I really wanted to read another of her mysteries and I had yet to read this one (the only one I own oddly enough). A couple chapters in and I’m bored and playing with my iPad.
The next day my husband puts in the movie Persuasion (1995 with Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds) and the next thing I know I feel the burning need to read the book. Whenever I watch that movie, I always want to read the book. Doesn’t usually happen with any of the other movie adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels. Just that one.
So I read about a chapter in and set it aside. Nope. My imagination’s calling for something else. The Case of Charles Dexter Ward by H.P. Lovecraft is at hand from the library. A chapter in and again, my attention is roving.
I don’t know what to read!!! I think I’m in the mood for horror and mysteries but I can’t find the right one.
What should I read? Any suggestions?
