February was a bit of a slow month for me, I started playing a lot of Elder Scrolls Skyrim, which is interesting because I hated that game when I first started it but I’ve been giving it a second chance and I am addicted. So that’s taken some reading time away from me but I’ve also been feeling so tired that I start reading but fall asleep so quickly. I keep telling my bf that I feel like I should be hibernating. I’m hoping my reading interest picks up in the spring as the sun starts coming out more.
That being said, I did get a bit of reading done so let’s get into that.

Overall January was a bit of a disappointing month for me, I wasn’t in the mood to really read a whole lot. I’m kind of feeling like I’m in a reading slump which is understanding and expected after reading 200 books last year. Id probably be more worried if I wasn’t burnt out. I’ve been spending some time just trying to take it easy and focus on recharging. I’ve watched more TV this month then I have in a long time, despite that I’ve managed to read a handful of books this month so let’s talk about them.

I didn’t do as well as I hoped I would. I sat down to read Saturday morning after a struggle to even get out of my nice warm bed. I made coffee and breakfast (sweet potato toast with mashed avocado, 10 outta 10 and highly recommend), set up my reading area with blankets, books, I light a candle, sat down, and immediately lost all interest.
I don’t know why but I just wasn’t feeling it, which is such a disappointment because I had been looking forward to this readathon since the last round.
I cant be too mad at myself, I did read more then I would have if there wasn’t a readathon going on. I read for 4 hours, started 3 books, finished 1, and made some progress on another.

I participated in the 24 in 48 hr readathon last year in July and I had a great time, I read so much and enjoyed everything I read. Ever since then I’ve been eagerly awaiting the next round that is taking place from January 26th through the 27th, I’ll link the sign-up page on their website here
So the goal of the 24 in 48 hr readathon is to read for 24 hours within a 48 hour time period. Last year I think I read for 12 hours. 24 hours would be my ultimate goal of course but my realistic goal is to read for 16 or 20 hours, I feel fairly confident about that goal.

Oh my God. I did it.
Earlier this year I made two goals for myself. One of them was to write a rough draft of a novel and the other goal was to read 200 books. Guys, I completed both of those goals!
I still cant believe that I did it, I feel burnt out right now, I don’t even know what to do with myself to try to relax and recharge.
This month was probably my best reading month ever, I read 26 books and I liked so many of them so let’s get into my reading month.

Tome Topple is back for another round! I love participating in Tome Topple which is a two-week readathon created by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes and its centered around reading books that over 500 pages. I participated in the last round back in June/July, had a great time. I read a handful of great books and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the next round.
Tome Topple Round 7 is going to be taking place from November 16th- November 29th
I started The Final Empire last round and decided that I needed to continue with the series for this round, I loved The Final Empire and I am ready to continue with the series. November has been the month of big books for me.

Oh my, what a month! September seemed to fly by and October felt like it just dragged by. Octobers a great month so I didn’t mind., but I’m looking at this list of 20 plus books and I’m just in disbelief at myself. Apparently, I didn’t do anything this month other than reading. Again, not a complaint, just disbelief.
