What I Read in January

I had another book-filled month! I’m still using and loving my library card.

I set a goal to read 24 books in 2019 and I’m ahead of schedule at this point. Did you set a reading goal for the year? How’s it going now that we’re one month in?

What I Read in December

December was a surprisingly book-filled month for me. A big factor in that was finally getting an updated library card which gave me access to their digital library, which includes a huge selection of audiobooks waiting for me online. I was able to read a lot of books while working on other things this month!

I didn’t reach my goal for the 2018 Goodreads challenge, but I made a pretty strong comeback this month!

Did you read a lot of books in December? Did you meet your reading goals for 2018? What are your reading goals for 2019?

What I Read in September

I’ve been reading a lot of long books this year. I think I’m going to have to find some short/normal length books to read this fall. As much as I love long books, I think the fact that they’re taking me so long to read is a sign that I need a change of pace.

What I Read in July

July was a month of burn-out. It’s that simple. I was just done with everything.

Apparently that included books.

That isn’t to say I didn’t try to read. I just didn’t read a lot.

I’m still loving Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, but there were a lot of days in July when I just didn’t have the energy to invest in enjoying the story. I’m not used to feeling like this, but I took some time to reflect on it and I’m sure it’s only temporary. Soon I’ll be ready to read again.

What books did you read in July? Have you ever felt so burned-out you couldn’t muster the energy to read?

What I Read in June

I’m still in a bit of a reading slump. I miss the days when I read a book a week. I’m not sure what I need to do to get those days back.

With CampNaNoWriMo next month, I can’t imagine making a comeback in July.

What I Read in May

I’m still in a bit of a reading slump. I think I need to incorporate more reading time into my day to break it. For the longest time I could get through several books a month by reading before bed. Lately I’ve been falling asleep or getting lost in thought shortly after I start reading. It’s slowed me down significantly.

Now I need to find another time to read and it turns out that is harder than it sounds.
