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!
This was a busy month for me. I had a ton of paperwork that I had to do for work (as in, I had to do it otherwise I would be taken off the register and couldn’t work as a nurse anymore) so that took priority over reading. However, my work shifts were very quiet so I got through about 1-2 books per shift. Plus I was actually in the mood for spooky/supernatural books this month, which was great for my TBR.
September went by so quickly that I’m still a little in shock that it’s October. That is my excuse for the reason this is late, well that and night shifts. I was in a very contemporary mood for the month of September, at least until the Contemporaryathon, when I found I was in the mood for fantasy. Awkward.
Well, I read more in the first six days of this month than I had in the whole month of July so in terms of quantity, I was already doing better. Not to mention, I enjoyed a lot of the books I read and knocked a few books off my TBR. And then I went on a mood reading binge and veered off my TBR completely.
So I got to the third week of July and realised that not only had I not read any of the big books I wanted to read this month, but I also hadn’t read anything else. So my TBR was getting bigger and bigger, I was getting closer to when my library books were due back and I hadn’t read anything. So I signed up for a readathon, found out which books were due back in the library first and set myself to actually reading. This was one of my worst reading months, but I did enjoy most of what I read this month.
Wow, this was not a good month for reading or for readathons. I didn’t read as much as I would normally and I forgot about the two readathons I was looking forward to the most, not to mention being late for the readalong (though I did get to the book in the end). Real life involved a job interview and a job offer, which is great, but my attention was definitely on that.
However, there were a lot of books I loved this month.
This was a month of ups and downs, both for my blog and for my reading. Especially for this blog where I didn’t post anything for over a week. But it was an okay month from the point of view of work and I tried to get through the books on my Spring TBR.
