This month my focus is trying to get over my reading slump! I’m going to try to complete shorter books, that are quite easy to consume over epic fantasies that require a lot of brain power. But if the mood hits me I will definitely be picking up some newer releases!
This month was a bit of a wash… I’m trying to work my way out of this slump and the way I do that is just by giving myself a complete break from reading until I get back in the mood. There are quite a few new releases that are about to come out that I am excited for so hopefully that will help me out!
Across the Green Grass Fields by Seanan McGuire – ⭐️4/5 stars

When the Tiger Came Down the Moutain by Nghi Vo – ⭐️3/5 stars
I just haven’t been in the reading mood at all for the last few weeks. I’ve been struggling to finish the various books I am in the middle of at the moment and I have no desire to pick anything else up. Its nearing the end of the month and I have only completed four books and all of them were under 300 pages and I am also 2 books behind on my Goodreads goal as well which I don’t think has ever happened to me before. There are soooo many great books I have on my TBR currently but the drive to actually pick them up and read them isn’t there. So what I have decided to do is just give myself a few days where I don’t even think about books, reading or blog posts, relax and let the groove come back in slowly. I know this slump isn’t going to last forever, I have these stages where I will fluctuate in and out of my reading habits and I guess I am happy it’s happening now at the start of the year as opposed to the end! So I don’t think there is going to be any posts for a few days, which makes me kind of anxious as I’ve never missed a day since I started this blog, but I am only human and I just have to let these things go. Hopefully you all are having a better reading month than me!
