December: in which I power-read in order to make it to 100 books read in the year. So I read a lot and I think did an ok job on the blogging front, though I am again (and always) behind on reviews. I have pretty much held myself to one review a week and I’ve been reading two books a week, so I’ll never catch up and that’s ok. Some stuff I read isn’t really reviewable. And I honestly don’t have it in me to write two awesome reviews a week. I read a lot more mediocre books in December than I remember reading in the previous months, but I’ve been sort of in between genres at the moment and am having a hard time finding exactly what I’m in the mood for, so maybe that explains it!

In the Works: I am off to a slow start this year, as I have been a little distracted with baby and family stuff lately. I just started reading Envy by Gregg Olsen and I’m curious to see what happens, though the tone hasn’t really clicked for me yet. I don’t have any major plans for the month reading-wise. As I said, I’m sort of in between genres and looking to see what strikes me next. And then there is that stack of childbirth books at home waiting for me to get through the massive chunker I started with…
What’s going on in your reading/blogging world?

I’m off to a slow start too, since I’m not even halfway through my first book of the year, although I did pick up a couple new audiobooks at the library. And yeah, haven’t posted anything on the blog since January 1st even though I have like 6 reviews to write. Oops!
We’ll get back into the swing of things soon enough. I am still in a holiday food coma or something!
“The longer I work in publishing, the clearer it becomes to me that I have absolutely no idea what people want to read…”
One of my sorority sisters posted that on FB, and it reminded me of you. If the publishers don’t know what to publish, how can you know what to read?!
I’ll know it when I find it has been the method I’ve been employing. So far it’s not really working, but I’m going to keep trying! I’ll come out of it eventually.
