Sooooo I definitely broke that reading slump and I’m feeling pretty darn good about it! I spent a lot of this month reading graphic novels, short fiction, and essays which was all easy enough to consume in one sitting and it really helped me to feel excited again about reading something new each day. In blogging news, not much besides my usual writing, I got a lot of new reviews done and have my posts all set up and scheduled for the next month, so that’s exciting. Edited my template for monthly review posts to more clearly mark the star ratings with links to goodreads pages on books I’ve read. A small detail, but I figure more convenient for readers.
I also joined Evelina‘s book blogging group and already made some new blogging friends through it which has been great. 🙂 I hope you all are having a wonderful reading year thus far! It’s so good to be back to reading, I’ve sorely missed it and the blogging community in general.
