Reading Right Now! (278)

 Well Hello, Hello! I know I haven't been posting as much as much as usual, but this month has given me a break when it comes to blog tours. It's been kinda nice. Sometimes, I know I should probably type a review or a monthly wrap up (which I haven't done in forever, oops), but then I just get really lazy and I don't even turn on my computer.

The way this pandemic has just been going on and on and on has really taken the pep right out of me. I is tired. But Hooray for Friday! I had a shortened work week because I got Veterans' Day off, that was nice, and it made Friday just come that little bit quicker.

So, enough of my rambling that you don't really care about or want. Here's what I'm Reading Right Now!

A Peculiar Peril by Jeff VanderMeer -- I am feeling just the slightest bit betrayed by this cover. I think this cover is a big reason that I wanted to read this book, and while it is truthful about some of the content of the book, it also lies by making the book seem cooler then it actually is. This Book Is Boring! It is 650+ pages of endless words that are not telling that interesting of a story.
I am not a DNF person. I like to give a book every chance it can to impress me. Sure, it might make me waste some time reading something that I'm not that excited about, but it's just the way I am. This book has now become a challenge for me. I'm determined to read every slow-going page and rate it accordingly when finished.
I've read stuff by Jeff VanderMeer before and have liked it, but this book is just too weird. It's not even interesting weird, it's just boring weird. It's almost like he just went stream of consciousness on the page and just kept writing and writing and writing. I don't really care about any of the characters, the plot is super slow and only barely keeping my attention. It's just very strange and blah.
So my plan is to conquer this beast! I will finish this, hopefully this weekend or the beginning of next week. I'm almost half way through. Maybe you've got to be the right person for this book, or be in the right kind of mindset to read this. Right now, I am just very bored. I'm not amused. I don't understand the choices.

So that's what I'm Reading Right Now! What are you Reading? Anything good or interesting?
