July Stats

Looking Back at July: I got to host Lindsey Leavitt in support of A Farewell to Charms-check out her interview! It was a very productive month for me, reading 29 books (I had been averaging 25 a month) but alas while I'm in the reading groove, I have fallen out of the habit of writing reviews. It is taking me much longer than I would like to put my thoughts down-there may be some mini-reviews coming your way if I don't get inspired soon!

Looking Forward to August: Another fantastic mix of recent YA along with a few adult books-I like to mix it up! I am also working on some discussion posts about blogging/the process of writing reviews, which is a bit ironic considering my current slump. I'm hoping it will be interesting for bloggers and non-bloggers alike. Along with that, I hope to pull myself out of my reviewing funk because I currently have about seven posts in draft and I would really like to hit publish on them. What do you do to pull yourself out of a reviewing slump?

  1. WOW, you must read very fast. I wish I could do 20-something a month. That would be excellent. I don't know about reviewing slumps...sometimes taking a bit of a break works for me...or you can do mini reviews and maybe a book will eventually grab you enough to write a full review. I like mini reviews though.

    Oh, and you're reading some adult books? That's awesome! I have an adult book I'm helping the author find reviewers for, if you'd like to know more. Email me- lauren51990 AT aol DOT com
