September Wrap-Up

Another month in the books. It was a low-to-average reading month. I finished six books, which is less than August, but that’s okay. Even though I’m reading less,I don’t feel like I’m in a reading slump; I just don’t have that much time right now. I’m working, I had some health issues, and I’m trying to find time to write and be a little social. It’s a lot. As the saying goes, I can do anything, I just can’t do everything.

6 books: 1 audio, 1 e-book, 4 physical books

1333 pages (that’s terrible)

12 hours listening

3 YA, 2 mystery, 1 m/m romance (which was also a mystery)

1 purchase, 1 borrowed from my mother, 3 library, 1 ARC

August Wrap-Up

Phew! I made it to the end of August. And, by the skin of my teeth, I managed to finish 7 books. It wasn’t my best month, but I still feel it’s respectable. I was able to finish the last two last night, which is why I held off until the afternoon to make this post.

This month was really busy for me. I spent the first week recovering from my amazing kayaking trip I took the last week in July, and then, the next week, it was back to work. It was kind of a rough transition for me; after spending most of the summer sitting around in group therapy, my energy wasn’t as high as it was last year, so I was a lot more tired going back to teaching. But, I think I’m finally mostly adjusted and, with any luck, will get back to posting more regularly and reading more books.

In August, I read:

7 books: 2 e-books, 1 audio, 4 physical

1,828 pages

listened to 7.56 hours

2 YA, 1 m/m romance, 2 self-help, 1 mystery, 1 literary fiction
