I am obsessed with Goodreads

All of my social-networking or time on the internet has recently been spent on Goodreads as of late.  I have abandoned Facebook, Twitter and even Blogger.  I have also been reading a ridiculous amount of books.  Remember when I said I wanted to try to read 25 books this year?  Oh, well here it is not even a quarter of the way into 2011 and I've reached that goal.  Which is pretty unusual for me.  I think I've been reading so much because that is the closest I can get to shutting my brain off.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not sad, or angry or upset over anything, I've just really enjoyed not thinking about everything all the time.  I'm still thinking, of course, but the focus has switched to whatever I'm reading rather than other things.  I envy John because he can sit and think of nothing like that's what is supposed to happen, but now I've found my own little way of calming my brain down and I love it.

Back to my obsession with Goodreads. (Seriously, if you aren't on there do it, and then be my friend, ok?) It's a place where authors, publishers and readers come together to talk about one thing we all have in common, books.  They also have giveaways and I was lucky enough to win one.  I received an ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) of Exposure by Therese Fowler.

Let me tell you, it did not disappoint.  You can read some reviews and the summary here.  It comes out May 3, you should definitely check it out!  I'm going to be looking into some of Fowler's other books as well.

So, I guess I really wanted to say that I'm not ignoring anyone.  I'm  just relishing the "nothingness" going on in my brain and the amazing books I have read so far this year.

  1. I loooove Goodreads! I'm envying all the reading you are doing. I completely understand diving into a book in order to shut down thoughts. I look forward to the summer when I'm done with school and I will have time to read again!
