books on my bedside table!

I thought it might be interesting to let you know what's been sitting on my bedside table these past weeks! 
Calm down, I can see the strange look on your face. Don't worry, I do not read four books at once.
I have four there because sometimes I feel like I'm in a certain mood to read a certain kind of book, I start it, then I just leave it there and don't really get to reading the rest of it. 
Then they just accumulate.
That's mainly the case for A Midsummer Tights Dream & Mockingjay.
I'm actually a good way in to A Game of Thrones, and Hugo Cabret is quite an easy read so I'm sure I'll finish that soon. 
And I will get to Mockingjay soon enough (I well know it's been a long time coming).

But I thought I'd just give you a little insight into my sporadic reading habits of late.
It's not really too commendable, but there you go. Those are the books on my bedside table!

What books are currently resting by your bed?

Errr, hello.

If you read the title of this post, imagine me saying it in a very hesitant, timid voice - a tone that breeds the notion of guilt and maybe some remorse.

It's been a while since I posted last. I apologise.
The only reason I can think of is that I've been oddly inspired to focus more of my time and energy on my other blogs (Bloggy Balog + Pen&PepperDreams), and uninspired to post on this one.

I said I'd have a reviewy type post for The Wind in the Door by Madeleine L'engle. 
It's not coming, I'm afraid. 
I didn't end up feeling like writing a reviewy type post for it, and so I didn't.

If you'd like to keep track of my whereabouts and such, Bloggy Balog - or even better, Twitter - is where I'll be updating stuff. All. The. Time. 
I keep my Goodreads up to date too. But I actually haven't been reading leisurely all that much. 
It's a sad condition I'm in on that front.

Not sure when I'll see you next, hopefully sooner, not later!
