I still seem to be reading more books than I get around to reviewing. I want to catch up this week and write some posts for next week, so I can take a complete break next week and focus on my writing and just have a break.
Blogging is fun and so is reviewing but it’s mentally tiring trying to blog and write and review. And I’ve started exercising again. I want to read for fun sometimes and not let it become a chore so I think taking breaks from writing blog posts now and again will be very helpful. More on this soon.
Books I started in Feb but finished in March
I really enjoyed this book, the review was my last post.
There was so much going on in this book. I haven’t got around to reviewing it yet.
Books I finished in March
Sapphire Smyth and The Shadow Fire by R.J. Furness
A quick read and a good one, here’s the review
I’ve finished this but have yet to review it.
Books I’m still reading
The Catcher In The Rye by JD Salinger
Little Creepers by Jessica Walsh (I should’ve finished this ages ago but I wanted to make it last)
From Story Idea To Reader by Rosemary Kind and Patsy Collins, reading the audiobook (free in exchange for a review) so it’s taken longer than normal. It’s a good book, info here, and I think I’ll have to buy a physical copy.
A writing book from Netgalley which I keep forgetting about.
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Prachett, which has taken over my life.
I did get into a bit of a reading slump. I read some good books but then I don’t know why I just lost interest. I read a book for a blog tour in May and flew through it but afterwards I just couldn’t get into my other reads. I took a break and did what I needed to do which was read a fantasy book and not just any but Good Omens and I couldn’t stop reading it. It helped me to get out of the slump.
I have two modes in life: feeling motivated and energetic and trying to do it all. And then feeling so mentally tired that I can’t do anything. I need to find a balance because when I’m tired I don’t even have the energy to read. It’s just my overactive brain.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by let me know what books you’ve enjoyed lately and drop links to your Month In Review posts 🙂
