Well, since October is very nearly over (do you realize how close we are getting to the holidays??) it’s past time to do another Big Reading Life Quarterly Report!
Books Read (July-September:) 17
Audio: 3 (all Harry Potter books: Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban)
Middle Grade: 3 (see above)
Authors of Color: 3
Reading Goals: Ha ha ha! 🙂 After having finished two of my goals (Random Picks and YA Books) I’ve pretty much abandoned the rest of my reading goals that I came up with in January. And I’m okay with that, honestly. For a while now my reading pace has been sluggish, and my concentration has been abysmal, so if I can finish my other RIP Challenge book, finish out the #AnneReadalong by the end of the year, and read my book group books, I’ll consider it good! I’m trying to take (admittedly self-imposed) pressure off my reading life.
Also, a happy development! I recently went over the 350 followers mark! I don’t quite know how that happened, but it’s really neat to see the numbers grow. I know that far fewer than that actually take the time to leave comments, but I want you who regularly read my little blog and comment that I REALLY do appreciate you so much. I love that I’ve gotten to “know” so many thoughtful, funny, kind book lovers around the world! Your passion for reading and writing inspires me daily to keep reading and writing, even when times are tough.
So how have your last few months in reading gone? Any surprises or challenges in your reading life lately? Have you abandoned any of the goals you may have set up for yourself in January? What’s been the best book you’ve read in the past 3 months?
