Time to read with a newborn

So like most women I have been trying to balance being a mother, a wife, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a cook and a cleaner with my love of books.  Unfortunately reading and blogging have had to take a backseat for the time being.  I have found myself on the odd occasion, when my little boy is asleep, taking a bit of ME time and just relaxing and reading a book.  The washing/dishes/vacuuming will still be there later afterall.

I am currently re-reading The House of Night series.  I started reading this series back in 2012 and really enjoyed it. Between now and then, the Author has finished the series and there are a few books I haven’t yet read. Usually, I would read a 13 book series like this  in a month or two, now with bubs I think it may take me until the end of the year haha.

I am the type that will not just read the new release, I will always re-read the whole series.  Does anyone else do this?

    I don’t do that, but your post reminded me of when my daughter was born. I read the entire Harry Potter series outloud to her. It gave me time to read and let her hear my voice.

      I still haven’t read the Harry Potter series, shocking really cause I love the movies. That’s a good idea though, maybe when I read suitable books I’ll read aloud to my boy 😀

    Hm – with this one I might. I also started the series several years ago, read the first nine novels and then somehow lost track (or maybe the next book just wasn’t out yet?). I’ve actually contemplated going back to that series for a while now – do let me know whether you enjoyed your re-read / the rest of the series! =)
