What do you do when you're struggling through a book? I'm reading a book for review. I accepted it but have struggled since I started it. I either fall asleep reading or procrastinate and always find something else to do. I'm 62% through it and I really just want to read and get it over with. It has taken me 2 weeks just to get to where I am. Does anyone else have this problem? I would love some advice on how to get through it and then write a review about it.
I'm a nosy person so I would love to know what everyone is doing on the weekend. Me? I'm hoping to get my husband outside Saturday for some planting. Sunday I have a Tastefully Simple party to go to. Otherwise, I think that's it for the planning part. Who ever knows what we'll wind up doing in between. If it's nice out, maybe we'll take a ride to the water.

This week's question:
Who is your favorite flawed hero and/or heroine and why do you still love them despite their faults?
Okay, I'm going to go with my all time favorite flawed hero. The one and only Zsadist from The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. He is flawed in so many ways, but he still has love and passion and strength to go on. I mean, what guy who has been a sex slave for so many years isn't flawed, both physically and mentally. We still have to love him though because he is so hot and sexy and loves his shellan to death.

Blurb from Goodreads:
In this follow-up to Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas begins seeing Anna everywhere: sometimes when he’s asleep, and sometimes in waking nightmares. But something is very wrong. These aren’t just daydreams. Anna seems tortured, torn apart in new and ever more gruesome ways every time she appears.
Cas doesn’t know what happened to Anna when she disappeared into Hell, but he knows she doesn’t deserve whatever is happening to her now. Anna saved Cas more than once, and it’s time for him to return the favor.
You know what's so funny? I have even read Anna Dressed in Blood yet. I just have this feeling that I'm going to devour these 2 books. I was never into scary books until I read Don't Breathe a Word by Jennifer McMahon. I've been looking for something comparable ever since.
