I seem to have kind of settled back in to my average reading speed after a crazy start to the year, but I’m not complaining, I’m still on track to exceed my reading goal. It’s been a hit or miss summer for me with books. I’ve been reading a lot of 3 star books lately. Good, but not great and really, nothing worth writing a review over. I would just restate the premise and be like this is good, but not setting my world on fire, the end. So. I’m trying to jazz things up by reading stuff I think that I know I’ll super like and it kind of works, but I think my mood is as much contributing to my lack of enthusiasm for books than anything else. I probably need to switch up the genres I’m reading or something just to shake up my attitude.
Anyways, I wrote a few posts in July. Nothing spectacular, but slowly trying to get myself back in the game. I really try not to stress over hit or miss posting, but there is something so sweet about having reviews scheduled out for weeks. Maybe someday I’ll get back to that point. Maybe.
Books Read in July:
Endlessly by Kiersten White
It’s Not Me, It’s You by Mhairi McFarlane
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa (audiobook)
Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid
In the Works: I’m in a bit of a weird phase where I keep picking up books about death/dying/grief/dead bodies. In that spirit I’m currently reading A Field Guide to Burying Your Parents by Liza Palmer and listening to Stiff by Mary Roach. This upcoming weekend is my library’s book sale and I’m dying to go, but we’re supposed to have company and I am not sure how to fit a book sale into a visit with the in-laws. We’ll see. Other than that, this month promises to be busy, as school starts back in less than three weeks and I will be back to fighting students for a parking space and a table to eat my lunch at. The ever-so glamorous lifestyle of higher education staff, ya’ll.
I am kind of sporadically blogging when I can/feel like it and expect to remain hit or miss for at least this month. I make no promises.
What’s going on in your reading/blogging/regular lives?
