Sometimes the ratings on Goodreads are just not that accurate.
I feel awful, just terrible, really downright pathetic. Why? Because for the first time since the induction of our book group in October I have failed to read the current month's selection before the bookgroup meeting.
Now I could tell you it's because I'm so big and pregnant, but that would be a lie. Because being so big and pregnant allows me to read more often because I can't do other stuff I normally would be doing. I could tell you it's because I've been too busy, but that too, I'm afraid would be a lie. I have actually read a book and a half this weekend (The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Sorcerer's Stone).
I haven't read this month's book because I just couldn't. I mean I tried to, I really did. I spent over a week on it and only got 75 pages in, that to me is not a good sign. Even most books I find laborous go faster than that for me. But everything about the book was irritating me, I just had to stop. First off I had an uncorrected proof purchased from a seller on Amazon, and it was full of errors, which for some reason I find really annoying even though this post alone is probably full of grammatical errors and bad spelling.
So now in a few short hours I have to go to book group and tell a group of other women that not only could I not finish a book (the first time for me at book group), I have to tell someone who loves this book and has read it twice, why I didn't read this book.
