August was such a strange but lovely month. I took time to enjoy being a newlywed, and then I started getting ready to go back to work, despite there being a heck of a lot procrastination involved in that as well. I’m very good at procrastinating. I did, however, end up doing a fair bit of reading, and some particularly good reading. It was an excellent month all told.
June was a pretty good reading month despite being incredibly busy. I had a lot of fun with the books I read and I got in some pretty good books that I was and am quite excited about. I ended up reading 19 books, which I’m pretty happy with.
May was an incredibly busy month for me. I had a lot going on work wise, and there was a lot going on personally as well. However, I still ended up reading 23 books, which is pretty good all things considered.
I am a bit behind on my hauls and wrap-ups. I ended up getting very busy at the end of the school year and when I came home from work I had little energy for anything outside of just sitting on my couch and recovering. However, now it’s summer break so I’m going to try and do some catching up. So here is what happened for me book-wise in April. I will admit that the book haul was a little crazy but that’s only because I made a Book Outlet order. Oops. I also read 25 books, which is pretty good.
March was a relatively good reading month. I enjoyed most of the things that I read and I was able to catch up on at least a few of my eARCs, which felt really good. I also got some really great books in and chipped away at reading them. You can see everything I hauled and read below the cut.
I had a pretty good February. There were some moments were I was really struggling, but I would say that on the whole I had a good reading month. I loved most of what I read, and I picked up some books that I was pretty excited about. I ended up reading 25 books, which is pretty good all things considered.
January was a pretty good month. It was definitely a month with a lot of pre-orders so I got lots and lots of book mail, which was exciting. I evern chipped away at reading some of those books, which was extra fun. It was also a really good reading month. My students were very helpful in encouraging me to read a book for each day of the month. I didn’t quite succeed in that, but I read a lot, and I read a lot of very good things. You’ll find what I’ve read below, along with the books hauled.
December was also a busy month, and I think by this time I was feeling a little burnt out from the year. My course was all wrapped up at the start of the month. Then I celebrated my birthday and it was Christmas and my family was visiting. I didn’t get as muhc reading done as I wanted but I read some good stuff anyways. Let’s just dive into it!
I will fully admit that I am incredibly behind on all of my blog stuff but I am here to finally catch up. First on the docket is my November haul and wrap up. November was a busy month for me because it was report card time and I was also taking a course which really took up a lot of my extra time. So let’s just get into it.
August wasn’t my best reading month. I did read some interesting books, but I felt like I was in a bit of a reading slump for a good part of the month. It couldn’t be helped. I was also busy and had a lot of course work. I did end up reading 20 books, and I hauled one. You’ll find them below the cut.
