If I’ve said it once, and I have, I’ve said it a thousand times, and I really haven’t, but I’ve thought it in my head and I thought it was out loud: “The Karma Train: It’s never late.”
This time, it came after this past Sunday, I commented on the blog A Striped Armchair, written by Eva. She had mentioned how she didn’t like the book In The Woods by Tana French, and I responded that I had enjoyed the book. I couldn’t let it go at that. I had to continue: “I’m reading The Likeness right now and while I’m not as enamored with her writing, I am enjoying it.” The Likeness is the next book after In The Woods and is the second of a series dubbed the Dublin Murder Squad series.
So the next day and the day after, I go to pick up The Likeness, and what happens as I’m reading it? Yep, you guessed it. Nothing.
Not just one day, but two days in a row.
So now I’m on my fourth DNF (Did Not Finish) book of the year, yes, count them (and weep, at least, I did):
Sad but true.
So what am I reading next? I don’t know.
I’m not committing to anything, because when I do, I seem to jinx it.
Have you ever had to eat your words or had the karma train hit you? If so, please do tell, so I can feel better that I’m not the only one to which these phenomena have happened?.
