This was the month of one of the worst reading slumps I’ve had in the last couple of years. Normally if I’m not picking up any books, I’m listening to audiobooks on the way to work but I haven’t been working much lately and I’ve been listening to music instead of audiobooks. I DNFed a book because I just wasn’t feeling it and I just felt guilty every time I listened to something else.
That worked to some extent but it still wasn’t a great month for me creatively. I wanted to do so many readathons and novel planning but it just didn’t go how I wanted, especially for the first half of the month.

Considering this was one of the shortest months, I think I did alright with the reading. Mostly because I was in the last month of the reading challenge I was doing and half of my library books were due during the month. I did have a mini reading slump near the end of the month as I was preparing for a job interview, though I seem to be over it now the interview’s gone past.

Another month gone! It’s already been 2019 for over thirty-one days, which is more than a little strange. At the end of this month was my birthday, so I knew I would be getting books then (I always get books!). Which meant I had to clear out some space on my bookshelves and since I was doing the Upside Down Reading Challenge, I was given the perfect opportunity to try and clear some space.
This wrap up is a little late but I’m hoping to get far more on top of things after this.

This was a busy, busy month. Work, social life and being ill meant that everything was delayed and slow. I felt so drained by the end of the month and then I got ill. However, I am looking forward to the setting of new goals for 2019. I have so many ideas and I’m feeling really hopeful.

I spent the first half of my November writing and the second half reading. It wasn’t exactly how I planned on it going, I was definitely wanting more of a balance but it is what it is. At least I didn’t spend November like I did July, feeling guilty no matter whether I was reading, writing or blogging and ending up not doing any of them.

October is all done! That was a very busy month, I was having to catch my breath as I try to prepare for Nanowrimo next month! Between Blogtober and Preptober, this was a busy month for me and I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked. I didn’t get half the stuff done as I would have liked but I put that down to poor planning.
And yes, this wrap up is over a week late but I’ve been concentrating on Nanowrimo (which I feel is going very well, it’s just other things falling by the wayside) but I’m hoping to get back on top of myself soon.

The weather is getting colder, the evenings are getting darker and I… ended September in a reading slump. I didn’t do too badly throughout the month in terms of number of books read, but in the last week I think I finished (not started, finished) two books. Apart from the disappointing end of the month, I had a really enjoyable reading month.
