Does anyone else look back on their monthly wrap-up and think, was it only this month i read that? Basically, this is a whole wrap-up of me thinking ‘was it only two weeks ago that i read that?’Continue reading “August 2020 Wrap-UP”
It’s already August, and i don’t know where the years going but it’s making me incredibly happy that i passed my Goodreads challenge months ago! The little time i’ve had to read in July is showing in my wrap-up this month, so it’s a good job i read non-stop at the beginning of the year!
How is it the last month of the year already?! I’m already writing my wrap-up for the end of the year and that feels ridiculous! I ended my year on a high with reading though, with a lot of graphic novels that i’d been meaning to get through. Let’s take a look at what i read in December.
It’s the start of a new year and nice clear reading slate has begun! I really love the new year for the opportunity to read the very best books you can and choose a whole new year of reading. I also get quite obsessive about what my first reads of the year will be, here are the ones i chose this year…
I was aiming to have a great reading month in May. The pressure of my YALC TBR staring at me every day is getting quite intense and i’m ready to get a lot of that knocked off my list. Admittedly, i started the month a little rocky in a bit of a reading slump, but i managed to pull it back and actually started to read pretty quickly towards the end of the month thanks to some of my new favourite books. Here’s what i managed to read in May.
After my average reading month in January i really wanted to pick up the pace a little in Feburary and start meeting my reading challenge targets. Sadly that’s not really happened. I’ve read enough to make me feel as though i’ve been productive, but not enough to make me hit those targets. I’m using my birthday and a holiday as a definite excuse for this behaviour. Next month i’ll have to read plenty of short books i think!
August is the first month after YALC, which means i’m naturally more likely to want to read and i can pick any book from my book shelf without worrying if that author is attending YALC or not and i want to get the book signed. So, i’ve had a pretty good reading month. It’s been like walking in to a book shop and pulling whatever i wanted off the shelves, but in my own home, it’s a whole sense of freedom i forget existed (Dramatic? Probably not).
