Reading Update: The One Where I Have No Self-Control

Hello, my name is Rachael, and I have no self control when it comes to reading. *Hi, Rachael*

There are two different kind of people when it comes to book worms: the kind that picks up a single book and immerses themselves in it from start to finish, and than there are the kind that can't help but pick up book after book until they are reading way more at one time than they probably should...I am the latter. Don't get me wrong, it, more often than not, has nothing to do with the book not being good, for me it wholly has to do with the fact that I want to reach for the unknown. I could be in the middle an amazing book but pick up another one half way through because I want to meet new characters, imagine new settings, and just to know what the book is about in general. Yes, I acknowledge this isn't always the best way to go about things because it can lead to confusion and just me never finishing a certain book, I feel bad about it...but...I also don't? I mean, please tell me I'm not the only one who does this. *sigh*
But as much as I acknowledge there's a better way to go about my reading habits, I also really REALLY don't like be judged for it. Like, excuse me, you do your thing and I'll do mine, it's not like I'm hurting anyone. It's like when someone makes a comment that I read too much or had too much coffee that day...HAHA I can never have too much coffee *evil grin*. Still though, to put it into terms that they may better understand, 'hop off'. ('Cause that's appropriate, right?)

Anyways, while we are on the topic of what I am currently reading (or not reading, depending on how you look at it), why don't I share with you what I have picked up in the last week or two. 


  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter #5) by J.K. Rowling - Of course this everything I was expecting from a Harry Potter book. Love. Love. Love.
  • A Cure for Madness by Jodi McIsaac - One chapter in and I have a feeling this could be a good and creepy read. 
  • Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic (The Dowser #1) by Meghan Ciana Doidge - I don't even know how I feel about this yet. 
  • Darkness There: Selected Tales by Edgar Allan Poe [Kindle in Motion] by Edgar Allan Poe and M.S. Corely - Edgar Allan Poe is always great but I'm a little disappointed with the "in motion" part so far. 

Let me know if any of you have this 'problem' and what you're currently reading. Besides, I'm just a nosy person in general and like to know what people are reading regardless. 


  1. Oooh, a book about cupcakes! THAT SOUNDS DELICIOUS. 😍 And I read multiple books at once too!! Generally only 2 (an audiobook and a physical book) but honestly my favourite part of a book is the first 100-pages. So I often feel like picking up more books even before I've finished one. I resist...mostly. But that's because I love writing reviews hehehehe. But still! Multi-tasking FTW I say!
