A List of Meh: What I'm Reading Right Now

I have a confession to make. I haven't finished a book since February 18th! I think it's because I haven't been loving any of the books I'm reading. Or because the spree has finally worn off.

None of the books I'm reading are bad per se, so I don't want to quit them, but I'm just not that into any of them. (It's not them, it's me, ha.) I'm not sure if I should shelve a couple for later, and start something new? But then it seems like if I do that I won't ever get back to them. Choices choices.

So here's what I'm reading:

Duplicate Death by Georgette Heyer. I like Heyer's books a lot, but as I'm reading this, it seems so familiar. And then I looked at Goodreads, and I was like, oh, I just read it in 2009. Guess that explains why I remember it so clearly.

The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. Guys! Why am I not more into this one?! I'm really not sure, but I've just been unmotivated to pick it up. I think it's my usual "Oh no the series is going to be over!" sadness... so by prolonging the read, I'm prolonging my time with these characters I love.

The Princess Bride by William Goldman. I love the movie the Princess Bride so much, and I've been meaning to read the book for years. I enjoyed the introduction(s) a lot - because they're vastly different from the movie. But now that I'm about 3/4 of the way in, I'm finding it a little dull, because it's so close to the movie.

Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach. I really liked Stiff by the same author, but apparently I just don't care that much about digestion. I've been listening to it on 1.5 speed to get through it faster.

The Art Forger by R.A. Shapiro. I think this one is definitely going to be a quitter. It was a Kindle freebie, and I don't care about the characters at all. And since I'm less than 20% in, I think I'm done.

    Have you read any of these? Should I stick it out?
