After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

28. The Metamorphosis and Other Stories by Franz Kafka



Title: The Metamorphosis and Other Stories
Author: Franz Kafka
Copyright: 1915 (1996)
Pages: 218
Format: Hardcover
Rating: 2/5 stars
Finished: 4-9-09

Truth to tell, I don't have much to talk about on this one. It is what it is, a bizarre and not always pleasing collection of novellas, the most famous of which is The Metamorphosis. I can't say that I enjoyed them, nor can I say that I didn't enjoy them. I took nothing away from any of the stories, and will probably never read this volume again. As you can see, I'm rather impartial to the entire thing.

Thanks for stopping by!

A friend of mine has mentioned the City of Bones series to me before, and I've been trying to get them from my library, so as soon as they become available I'm going to give them a try.
