This was such an odd month. I only read seven books, total, and I can’t even really pinpoint why. Maybe I just am still not feeling it? I don’t know. Maybe September will be better…. or not? Or maybe I should stop judging HOW MUCH I read and just be grateful I still read. I mean, my kids have all but stopped reading no matter how much I mention it.
That said, my favorite this month is one that’s not out yet:
So my reading ground to a halt this month. Some of that was a class I was taking, which took up time. But I found I didn’t have the patience (again) to read, and ended up watching a lot of TV again. I guess that’s life?
So my reading kind of tanked there ar the end of the month. I’m not entirely sure why. Part of it is being busy, but part of it is that I just haven’t felt like reading. I watched the most recent season of Queer Eye and am working my way through the seasons of Great British Bake Off that I never watched. I’m sure I’ll get back to reading. Probably.
My favorite this month:
It really was a delight watching Taika Waititi and friends read this.
I was in a bit of a slump at the beginning of the month: stress, anxiety, everything shifting so much, and just trying to adjust to our new normal all made it difficult to focus on a book. Thankfully, audio books came to the rescue. (If you look down, I listened to — and finished — FOUR this month!) I would sit and listen while I worked on a puzzle for hours. It helped get me escape — though a lot of what I read was nonfiction — and gradually I was able to pick up a real book again. Yay!
My favorite this month was:
A fantastic dragon book. Seriously. I can’t wait for the sequel.
I had no idea — none of us did, really — at the beginning that we would be all stuck at home trying our best to slow the onset of a pandemic. On the upside? A lot of time to read. Maybe. I find that I’m having a hard time focusing on print books, so I’ve been listening to a lot of audio while doing puzzles. It seems to be easier.
I’m not sure I had a favorite this past month; everything seems to have blurred together. Here’s what I read:
I know my blog’s been quiet this month, but I am reading. Promise. It’s just that I’m reading as part of my role as a judge for the Cybils Graphic Novels category, and I can’t post my thoughts until after the winners are announced.
Also: you know it’s been a month when I’ve read the most adult fiction of anything. Wild!
