Reader's Block

Okay, I have some stuffs to do but what I'm doing now is actually blogging. Why? Yes, WHY???!!

This morning I woke up with my Xperia still in my palm because somehow last night I fell asleep when reading a Harlequin novel.

You may think "What's the big deal?"


What usually happens is I decided to stop reading and then enjoy my sleeping beauty or I decided to continue reading until I finish the book and woke up miserably in the morning. But, sometimes I don't really care about my looks in the morning as long as the book is worth reading.

Yes, worth reading book that what I'm looking for right now. I really miss the time when I have to wait years for Harry Potter. Visit bookstores regularly just to make sure if Darren Shan is already out or not. Gallagher Girl series by Ally Carter has finished, though still waiting for the Heist Society series which still not coming out yet. Even Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson has only one book left, and I'm not really sure when the next series of The Kane Chronicles will be published or the new mythology from Norse Mythology that Rick Riordan plans to write. The only book with the closest release date which already confirmed is the sci-fi Lorien Legacy series by Pittacus Lore, Revenge of Seven.

Well, the fact is there are some books in my list that I think will help me to deal with my reader's block (if the term is exist):

  • Kami Garcia and Margareth Stohl's Beautiful Creatures series which I stuck in the second book.
  • James Dashner's The Maze Runner series which I also stuck in the second book.
  • Shanna Swendson's Enchanted Series; I really love this series but I cannot find the fourth book, Don't Hex with Texas, and also the rest of the series. Well, actually the word 'cannot find' is a bit strong because actually I could find the book but very expensive.
  • Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series; I'm still reading the third book, Shadow Kiss, not sure when I will finish it.
  • Michael Grant's Gone series; a lot of friends recommend this book but I even haven't finished reading the first book.
  • Thomas E.Sniegoski's The Fallen series; I remember that I really enjoy the series but it has been along time ago, with my reading block now, I don't know when I could find a mood to start reading the fourth series, Reckoning.
  • Cara Lockwood's Bard Academy series; I'm still looking for the second book of the series, The Scarlet Letterman, but the bad rating and review in Goodreads somehow contributes in putting my reading mood down.
  • Cassandra Clare's sixth series of The Mortal Instruments, City of Heavenly Fire; however until now still cannot find the mood to start reading it.

So, what should I do now? It's reader's block by the way. Well, my husband said perhaps I'm too stress with work. He suggested to go out fishing with him this weekend, not to fish of course but finding a new and fresh place to read. Actually, it is not a bad idea after all because where I'm living now is still surrounded by primary forest, deep wood, rivers and lakes. Let's find out this weekend, whether I'm still suffering with reader's block or not.
