August 2015 in Review

September 7, 2015

Apparently, I was wrong about July being my slow month. August was the slowest. I only read three books in August. Three. Three! And I only reviewed two. (Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is from July.)

[wrap-up-posts date=”August 2015″ category=”book reviews” listtype=”ul”]

The other book I read was Screenplay by Syd Field, which was a reread. Coming off the reading deprivation and then moving into course prep for the fall didn’t leave me with a real interest in reading, alas.

September is not looking any better so far, to be honest. I haven’t really found a book that I can get into yet. I’m sure that once I do, I’ll pick up the pace and explode my reading goal. (Goodreads says I have met it, but I know that’s inaccurate since you have to shelve a book in order to mark it as unfinished, which is just dumb, but whatever.)

So here’s hoping I get a reading block busting book soon.

    I totally understand about the reading slump. I have them too! For some reason this year it came early around BEA. Have you reading Counting by 7’s. It helped get my mojo back a bit. Love Love Love your blog design and the DOTS widget. 😀

      Yes, I read it and found it delightful. I know it’s just a matter of finding that one book that kickstarts the reading again, but right now I’m reading a (slightly dry) book for work.

    I hope you find a really good book really soon! 😀 I’ve had a horrific month so far for just low-star ratings. o.O like the MOST sucky books of ever have apparently fallen into my September. Buuuut there are have been some gems too which is always deliciously wonderful. hehe
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
