My SO has to work out of state for the next two days. I have to go back to work tomorrow and I have a feeling I’m not going to sleep well tonight. It’s part of my anxiety. The first night somewhere, even my own home, by myself always gives me nerves. So, I figured if I would pick three books to make my main focus and not go back on YouTube and listen to horror stories…then perhaps I’ll survive this.
That sounded dramatic, but it kind of is…but isn’t. Anyway, I do have some books on my kindle as well, but I picked three physical books that I have that I’ll make my main focus. One book has been on my TBR for longer than the other, and one is also a re-read.
Here are my three books for while I’m home alone.
The fourth book of Harry Potter, of course. I want to finish reading that series again. It’s been a long time since I’ve read the books and I want to go through them and remember what all happened and the different details that made Harry, Harry.
The June Boys and Sadie are books that I saw on Jesse the Reader and now…I can’t get them out of my head. IF you’re not familiar with the other two:
The June Boys:
The Gemini Thief is a serial kidnapper, who takes three boys and holds them captive from June 1st to June 30th of the following year. The June Boys endure thirteen months of being stolen, hidden, observed, and fed before they are released, unharmed, by their masked captor. The Thief is a pro, having eluded authorities for nearly a decade and taken at least twelve boys.
A missing girl on a journey of revenge. A Serial―like podcast following the clues she’s left behind. And an ending you won’t be able to stop talking about.
I started the first part of The June Boys, haven’t started Sadie. I’m 100 pages into The Goblet of Fire. I have several ARCs that I have to read as well – I have my work cut out for me. No horror stories on YouTube for the next couple of days.
Otherwise…I won’t sleep at all. My overactive brain can concoct a lot of things…it’s scary. So I sit here in my Stitch pajama pants with The Carol Burnett Show playing in the background…and now, I shall read.
