This week, I’m supposed to list the books I read when I’m not feeling well. I have to admit when I’m not feeling well, the last thing I want to do is read. Why? Because usually when I’m not feeling well, it’s because I have a headache. Allergies or migraine. Here’s the thing. I don’t want to do much of anything when I’m in the midst of a migraine or an allergy headache. No reading because it makes me nauseous.

Now I do have one story about reading when I wasn’t feeling good. I don’t remember what was wrong. Stomach flu? I’m not sure. But whatever it was, I was stuck in bed and it wasn’t fun. What book did I turn to? The one that had just arrived. Lisey’s Story by Stephen King. I remember feeling nauseous, but I wanted to read the book. So I did. I distinctively remember a scene in which a can opener was used on the main character. Gross, I know. Now, remember, I was sick to my stomach. For whatever reason, that part of the story stayed with me, but it didn’t make me sick. I don’t know. I don’t get it.

But that’s the story and I’m sticking to it. What about you? What books do you read when you’re not feeling great? Might have to try them. 🙂

In the meantime, I’ve got a book for when you’re feeling down. Her Wayward Rogue. Give it a shot!

Her Wayward Rogue by Megan Slayer

Series: The Jordan Brothers (#3)

Multiverse: Roosters (#2)

Book Length: Novella

Page Count: 96

Sometimes finding your place means going back to where it all started.

Jaxon Jordan left the safety of the Jordan family to find himself. College, spreading his wings, and figuring out who he wanted to be were high on his list until one very bad night. When he witnesses his friend’s murder, his perspectives change. He has to go home to heal and be with the people who matter — his brothers and his girl, Emily.

Emily Wilson loved Jax once, but he left. She remained in her position working for the family. Part of her wants to open her heart to Jax again, but the rest of her yearns to stay guarded. One look at the man she craved reignites the passion she thought was gone.

Can love strike twice? If you’re a Jordan, anything’s possible.

  1. It makes sense to not want to read while having a migraine. I’ve only ever had regular tension headaches, and even those can make focusing on a page tricky.

    Lisey’s Story sounds scary! Have you read a lot of Stephen King’s stuff in general?

    My post.

  2. Yeah, with a serious sinus headache I can see where reading would be difficult and unappealing. (I don’t really get migraines, but… yeah, those too.) I *do* read when I’m not feeling well (usually), and my list is here.

  3. Man, speaking of headaches… my sinuses are out to kill me today. Hahaha. So yeah, I can sympathize with you not wanting to read with a migraine or allergy-induced headache.

    I love Stephen King and when I read Misery years ago, I scared the daylights out of my stepfather. I was still in high school, reading in my room, when I got to the part where something awful happens to the main character with a hatchet and a blowtorch (they changed it in the movie to be less graphic…). I didn’t even realize it, but I screamed. Hahaha.

    My post.

  4. When I’m like that audio books help pass the time. I’ve never been a fan of Stephen King. The only movie I’ve seen of his was Carrie and that was enough.
