So… August. Worst reading month of 2012 for me. It’s not a big secret that I’ve been having a hard time keeping up with my blog lately. I’ve been a bit distracted (lots of big stuff going on in my life right now) and haven’t really read much that I want to talk about. I’ve also been DNFing a lot of books lately, but less because they aren’t good and more because I can’t seem to focus on anything. It’s been frustrating, but I guess we’re all entitled to our reading slumps.
I can’t seem to kick the blogging slump, though. I’m not really sure what to do about it. I want to have a blog, but I don’t think I can be the sort of person who posts regularly. I just don’t have the energy or enthusiasm to post 3 or 4 times a week consistently. I also seem to have lost my focus and purpose here. I have gotten out of this a lot of what I originally intended to get (some buddies to discuss books with, read more, read better) so I’ve sort of hit that point where it’s like… what now? I am not particularly interested in working with authors or accepting review requests. I am always hesitant to commit to challenges or read-alongs or that sort of thing because I worry I won’t have the time/interest required to sustain that commitment. Not sure what direction to take from here, but I will probably continue to sporadically update the blog. If you have suggestions, please share in the comments. I could use a little encouragement 🙂
Books Read (with links to my review/Goodreads):

In the Works: I am keeping busy with romances these days. That seems to be one of the few things that holds my attention right now!
