Reading Corner

August Reading Corner

This stupid reading slump is still clinging to me like a persistent limpet. I’ve gone back to two reviews a week and I’m still struggling to keep up. I’ve only managed to clock in at 7 books this month, an all time low for 2020. I’ve already had to push back my CROWS schedule because, although I’ve finally got to the end of Drachenfels, I still haven’t been able to write a review. Things just came to boiling point this month. A word to the wise, don’t try to balance submitting a chapter on Scribophile every day, revising for an exam and a full time job all in one go. I’ve had to give up Scribophile and writing in general until my exam’s out of the way.

One of the things that has really kept me going is the book blogging community. Being tagged for the Summer Reading Challenge 2020 came at just the right time and being nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award was a lovely surprise. So, thank you, my likers, commenters, followers and just-passing-through-ers. You guys are great.
