Sunday Salon - Reading for Enjoyment!

I only finished two books this week...

The Cat, The Professor and The Poison by Leann Sweeney
Throw Out Fifty Things by Gail Blanke (audio)

I wasn't very productive otherwise. I started three different books - all good but for some reason I can't seem to stay focused on just one. I want to read them all at once! Reading a little of all three has left me not finishing anything. This is why I just normally like to read and complete one at a time.

I just did an inventory to see how many books I actually have waiting to be reviewed.
I have 29 books waiting to be reviewed. That's crazy and it's my own fault, I know. Plus, I don't seem to have much time for reading lately...this could take forever. I tried to even make a schedule, but that got out of hand. If I follow the schedule, it won't be until the end of the year before I read anything for pure enjoyment. So, I'm tossing the schedule aside and will do reviews based on the order I received the request (unless there is some kind of deadline involved) and will try to alternate with books for enjoyment.

So, what books do I want to read for enjoyment? Cozy mysteries! Do you ever get in the mood to just read certain books? I feel like reading from my cozy collection. I have print books as well as cozies on my Nook. I'm very well stocked up on them. I can't wait to actually get involved in a series of them. I do love my cozies :) When I was cleaning out my TBR, cozies were the only books that I didn't donate.

What books do you like to read for pure enjoyment? Do you ever get into a mood where you only want to read one type of book?

Hope everyone has a great week!

  1. I can relate! I try to balance books for review, in with reading for enjoyment. Theres not enough hours in the day.
    I tend to read horror/suspense for enjoyment :)

  2. Read what you want so it stays enjoyable instead of a "chore". My enjoyment books are Women's fiction and suspense.

  3. I had been feeling like reading was a chore lately too. I need to go back to mood reading.

    Love the LOL cat.

  4. 29 books?! That would intimidate me. I try to stay up to date, but I am behind, nevertheless.

    I hope you enjoy the heck out of the next book you read.
