Failure

Musical Accompaniment:

Pocket Full of Kryptonite is fantastic and you should listen to the whole album

Interstellar News: I did watch two episodes of Deep Space Nine today, but it’s 11:30 pm and I need to get some sleep. I promise I will write about them tomorrow.

Two months ago I challenged myself to read 26 novels in order to get ready for the 27th Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter novel, Sucker Punch. Today I am writing to tell you I failed miserably. I got barely got through the first three books which are some of the shortest in the series and I can easily read in under three hours a piece.

Work got crazy and I just haven’t had much interest in reading, which pains me because I’ve been an avid reader my entire life. Every year I’ve loved reading the novels in anticipation for the new one, but this year it looks like another thing Coronavirus has taken from me.

I write this post for a two reasons. The first reason is to keep you updated, I don’t want you thinking I just write a thing and forget about it. I always try my best to communicate with others, even if it’s people I’ve never met. The second reason is to let you know it’s okay to fail. I’ve read all of the books at least once, some of them several times at this point. I know what happens in them and it’s not as important this time for me to finish what I started because I know how much time I really have. Sometimes you need to say “no”, even if it’s to yourself. Anyway, I will leave you with a picture of the bright, shiny cover… though I’m totally jealous of the UK version.

the cover for Laurell K. Hamilton's novel, Sucker Punch.
I will read at least the first chapter before bed.

TA Out!
