Musing Mondays (June 24)

MusingMondays5Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

My Musing: 

I bought Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready at Walmart a while back and let it sit on my shelf for some time.  I got hard into my kindle and just forgot about the book.  I know I read the back and must have loved it but for some reason I forgot about it.  Then about two months ago I found the book on my shelf and started reading it, this time without reading the back.  OMG I was instantly engrossed and surprised.  Had I read the back I would have realized the guy in the story dies at the beginning.  It is the whole point of the book.  But holy cow since I didn’t read it, it was so powerful I wanted to cry when he died.  I wonder if that is common in other books?  I mean you have to read the back insert to see what it is about but it’s too bad we can’t just start with a clean slate.  I am looking forward to reading Shif next but I’ve decided not to read the back.  And then onto Shine.  Very excited.

    Quite often I don’t read the back (after reading it before I buy / borrow) as I’ve usually forgotten and prefer to start fresh. Here’s my MM:
