august wrap up// possible reading slump??

As I was writing out my list of books that I had read for the month of August, I was quite disappointed. I only read 6 (six) books this month! SIX! I honestly thought I had read more than that. But I guess I did not.

But I did spend the last part of August finally catching up on blog posts and comments. I still have to read a lot of my followers posts but I am still glad I was able to finally get caught up.

I think what happened is that I hit a mini reading slump. I enjoyed every book I read but I just wasn’t in the mood to read. I’m going to try and find a bunch of fall reads in the hopes that it will get me in the mood to read again.

Alright, enough of me blathering on about how sad I am at my reading, it’s time for a break down of every book I read. This will be relatively short but eh, what can you do?

Δ books read: 6

Δ average star rating: 4 stars

Δ The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha

→ 5 stars, own, favorite

→  A wonderful book that makes me happy and reminds me to enjoy the little things in life.

 

Δ The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordian

Δ Omega by Jus Accardo

→ 3.5 stars, own

  3. I get what you mean. Sometimes, even if I’m able to hit the numbers, I just don’t feel like I’m enjoying the books I’m reading at all and it’s just a waste… Happened a lot on this readathon I was taking part in. I was a bit too focused on reading everything I could and not realising it could be affecting my desire (or lack thereof) to read. Thankfully the majority wasn’t like that but it was still disheartening.

    Anyway, great wrap up and I hope you have a wonderful October, with much better reads ❤

    1. Thank you so much! I think during August, I was just so stressed and that affected my reading as well. This month (September) was hella better!
      Readathons can def be like that. It’s why I pick them very carefully so it doesn’t affect my reading.
      I hope your October is just as amazing as you! ❤
