Hello, fellow readers! I feel very accomplished about my reading in July, and I owe it all to audiobooks! I read a couple of ARCs, a series I meant to get to last year, and one of my most anticipated books of 2018.
Hello, fellow readers! I am happy to report I finally beat the reading slump in June. I finished one book in May and four books in June. Three of the five books I’ve read in the past two months were five stars, so even though my numbers aren’t impressive, I am happy with what I read.
Whew. April was quite the slow reading month, and the way my May calendar is looking, it seems I won’t have much time for reading next month either! I did finish three books and two were ARCs, which always helps me feel accomplished. I am currently in in the middle of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which I started in mid-April and then set aside to read an ARC.
What a mediocre reading month! March was a rough month. I expected to get so much reading done during Spring Break, but adult responsibilities and National Boards and family obligations dominated that week off from school. Nothing I read this month “wowed” me or captivated me and frankly I had a hard time even picking up a book to read everyday.
I am currently still reading The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden and an ARC of The Killer In Me by Olivia Kiernan. I am very close to DNFing The Bear and the Nightingale though. There are way too many other fantasy books I want to be reading, plus ARCs I need to catch up on.
February was not a great reading month. It started out strong with a tense, fast paced thriller and popular contemporary, but after those two books, I fell into a reading slump/hangover from those amazing books! Nothing compared to the first books I read in February, but I still managed to finish four books this month. My goal during school months is to read four books per month, which averages out to a book a week. Audiobooks are really helping me meet that goal right now as I finish working on National Boards and survive the stretch before testing season begins!
My goal this month was to read four books, and I am happy to report I exceeded my goal with the help of audiobooks. January’s reading started off strong but then after my first three books, I had some very disappointing reads. But by the end of the month, I had read one of my most anticipated books of 2019 and ended the month on a high note.
