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 books did you read in September? Are there any books you’re looking forward to reading this fall?


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.

What I Read in April

April was another slow reading month. I was trying to focus on writing, and I was successful in that aspect. I just wish it didn’t come at the expense of my reading time.

Are you on track with your reading goals for 2018? Have you read any great books lately?

What I Read In March

I’m still struggling with picking up my reading pace. I’m not sure what’s slowing me down. A reading slump, I guess. Here’s hoping I can find a book to break me out of it soon!

What I Read in February

February was a better month for reading than January, but it also felt like a month of starting new things without finishing old things. I guess this happens sometimes, but I’m usually the sort of person to read a book from start to finish before starting another. Now I’m jumping around and it feels strange.
