In previous years, I’ve started off slowly and sped up as I got closer to December. This year, it feels as though the opposite is happening. I’m only getting slower. It doesn’t help that I’ve had a lot of social engagements recently. It’s also due to a lack of motivation. Maybe 2022 had too strong a start and I’m burnt out?

So, July didn’t exactly work out as I intended. It started with me getting Covid and I never really made up for lost reading time. Then my final week was spent on holiday with my 3-year-old niece and 1-year-old nephew. Meaning there wasn’t much time for reading in between playing and going on adventures. I still managed to get a few things off my TBR, so it’s not a complete disaster and I’m still ahead of my yearly target.

Where the heck did June go? I can’t believe it. My friend gets married tomorrow and it’s snuck up so suddenly. It feels like only yesterday that we were madly trying to decide on a bridesmaid dress and now we’re a day away from the actual wedding. That’s also my excuse for not getting much reading done this month. I’ve had stuff to do. Still, I think I’ve done okay. I barely touched my Pride TBR but that’s hardly new.

May was a bit of a non-month really. Work has been super busy compared to last year for obvious reasons. Then I’ve had a load of personal commitments to fit in. All meaning that I’ve not had as much time for reading. This has been my worst month for a while but I’m choosing not to focus on that. Instead I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve finished some books I’ve had on my list for a while.

March started out pretty slowly because of my birthday. It’s always the way. Suddenly I have loads of social events to fit in and I end up not reading as much. But, thanks to a few quick audiobooks, I managed to get my number up. I also didn’t have a bad month in terms of ratings. Mostly pretty good and nothing as bad as February.

What have you been reading this week?

April is upon us, which means a whole new TBR to get through. I have a lot of ARCs to get through this month. I really have to stop getting carried away on NetGalley. It’s leaving me in quite a pickle. So many books on top of my already huge TBR.

February has finally come to an end, thank god! It’s been the longest month for me and I’m glad to see the back of it. My main aim for reading this month was to focus on romance and love. I read more stories about love than I think I read in 2021. Not all of my reads were successful but, thankfully, there were plenty of highs to balance that out. Here’s how my month went.

The end of January really snuck up on me this year. Normally, it’s a long month but I feel like it’s flown by in 2022. Although, I felt the same last year, so maybe it’s not a good sign? We don’t want 2022 to go the same way as 2021. Unless we’re talking about how much I read. I’m not sure I’ll best my total books this year but I’ll give it a try. Thankfully, we got off to a pretty good start this month.

Bookish Post – Spell the Month in Book Titles: December

What a stressful way to end the year. As interesting as this reading challenge has been, I can’t say that I’m planning on doing anything like this again. The time between Christmas should be about eating and sleeping. Instead, I was panicking about finding books to read to cross off the letters I still needed. Still, I just about managed it and now I’m looking forward to reading whatever I want next year.
