School started back for me which means that with class and work I have less time to blog. While I don’t feel like my reading time was infringed upon terribly (I tend to read more often during the school year), I still had a horrible reading month. I only managed to read two books. I tend to read multiple books at a time, so I was expecting to finish the ones I was reading as well as the ones I started. Haha, not so.
Bad writing in one book has made it a drag to read, but I’m determined to finish it due to its popularity and how it changed the genre. In the other book, a generic plot twist has made a unique story incredibly droll from the twist onwards. I still plan on reviewing those books at some point.
In the mean time, you can check out what I did manage to read this month:
The Maze Runner (James Dashner; 3 stars)
Fascinate (Sally Hogshead; 4 stars; Review on Goodreads only)
The fastest way for me to get into a reading slump is to read bad/mediocre books, especially in a row. I had already read The Maze Runner which was a bummer for me (although it did have some very strong elements). Add on my two other current reads and…well you got a pretty bummed out reader! Right when I was fearing I was headed into exile in the land of reading slumps, I came across Fascinate by Sally Hogshead. It’s a really
fascinating interesting book, and even if you aren’t into business or marketing, I think most anyone can get something out of it thanks to the psychological roots. Not to mention that marketing is something that impacts us all.
By no means was this a good reading month for me but regardless, I managed to read and finish two books and I have some fantastic ARCs to look forward to next month. Hopefully I’ll be able to power through my current reads as well and September will blow me away reading wise.
