I can hardly believe that after two months of voracious reading, I've been afflicted with a severe reading slump! Alas, I only finished 1 book in April. I did try to read other books, but everything else I picked up seemed bland and uninteresting. It was quite unfortunate, as some of the books I tried were bestsellers or had unique premises. I think if I wasn't in such a slump, I would have enjoyed them another time.
Another great month of reading for me! (Every time I manage to read an average of a book per week, I consider that a good month.) This March, we have a mystery-thriller set in Korea, a middle-grade slice of life story dealing with grief, and the wrap-up for a trilogy of magical heists. So let's get to it!
Wow, six books in the four short weeks of February? I can't believe it either! It seems I was on a roll last month, devouring book after book, blooming out of my reading slump from January. So let's get right to it!
Hello guys! Welcome to the first post of 2021! I hope you guys are having a good year so far (or at least, as good as it can get during this time).
I'm going to skip my usual monthly books review, and dedicate an entire post to my favourite series, The Queen's Thief by Megan Whalen Turner. The last book, Return of the Thief, came out last Tuesday, and it took me a record of 1.5 days to finish it.
I spent much of this month feeling like I was in a book slump, so it's a little surprising to see that I managed to finish 5 books. But I think the slumpy feel was due to the fact that, with the exception of Toy Box, I wasn't really into any of the books I read.
I started July with some heavy nonfiction books, but partway through, I picked up some middle-grade novels for levity. These were the ones I ended up finishing within the month.
It was crunch time at work last month, so most of the reading I did were lighter -- I stuck mostly to manga.
I forgot to write this post at the beginning of the month, but better late than never, right?
I realized that I didn't do a book review for the month of March. It was just so crazy last month, I think we can all agree on that. I haven't been able to keep up the reading pace I had set at the beginning of the year, unfortunately. With all that's going on, I haven't had a lot of reading mojo, but I do hope that I will soon find the right book that will push me out of my slump and help me through these uncertain times.
