July Wrap Up

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.

June Wrap Up

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).

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.

January Wrap Up

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.
