Okay, this was the month of readathons for me! I didn’t do as well as I wanted to on these readathons, since I was taking part in a reading challenge on Goodreads until the 21st August (we came 9th out of 16 so we did alright). But it was good getting back into the swing of doing readathons again and I’m looking at ones to do in September. As for the rest of the month, I knocked a lot of books off my library/physical TBR but my actual August TBR? Did not go well.
I started off hopeful about this month because despite starting late, I did manage to knock two books of my monthly TBR within a couple of days of each other. Then it went downhill in terms of my TBR and then back up again.
This month did not start off well and then it did not finish off well. I had a great middle! But there were other things going on (dull work things) and my reading kind of went over the edge.
This wrap up is so very late after me trying to get organised and on top of everything. But I had a great reading month! Mostly because I did nothing else but it still counts. It has also been fantastic weather, although I have been working a lot so I haven’t been able to take full advantage.
This month went so much better than February and March combined. I had a really fun month, even if I had to self-isolate for a while thanks to my parents testing positive for COVID-19 (they’re fine). Thankfully it was really nice weather so I was able to sit outside and read a few times.
March was interesting, to say the least. I read the same amount of books in February, though fewer pages, but I feel a lot better about this reading month than I do about February. Maybe it’s because this month I wasn’t reading because I was watching far too many Chinese dramas on Netflix, rather than because I was in a reading slump and unhappy with it.
It seems to be a trend for 2020 that I have a reading slump in the middle of the month. I feel very inspired when I put out my TBR, then I don’t do much reading in the next two weeks and then I’m looking at the end of the month and suddenly feel inspired by my TBR again. I may have to plan for this in March.
I’m trying to get the same colour for every month so we’ll see how this works. I took a two week hiatus (unintentional) in the middle of January where I did barely any reading, blogging or instagramming, but now I’m back on the wagon. Due to my reading slump, this wrap up is heavy on the rereads and easy cosy mysteries. It also was the month for non-fiction, which was unintentional, but my mood at the time.
This is a combination wrap-up because I did not make any goals for 2019 so I really don’t have that much to talk about on here? I tried to keep track of my genres of books but I managed to do the first fifty before I got behind, so none of that kind of wrap up from me.
Otherwise, December was an okay reading month. I had some books that I really enjoyed and some books which really disappointed me.
Oh wow, November was busy. Before I realised, half of the month had gone. I got ill near the end of November so that was not fun with Nanowrimo and my reading and then the space bar on my keyboard went kaput which made blogging and writing very difficult. It seems to have corrected itself, which is good because my tablet keyboard was getting very annoying. But I read a lot of enjoyable books and even a five star book!
