Reading and Being Unplugged from Social Media

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA

 

As you may have known, I have been saying that I am in a slump for the last couple of months and I think NOW it shows. I have been sorta offline and haven’t been blogging but I am still quite active on bookstagram.

I am almost getting out of this slump I’m in but I think one of the main contributing factors is that I have been traveling for work. At least it’s not every single week but I have traveled three times in March, another longer travel in April and twice in May. With that said, I am just glad to unwind and relax when I’m at home and I haven’t been bringing my personal laptop with me on these trips. So, no blogging time at all. I still marvel at all the bloggers who are able to juggle their very busy work schedule, family and blogging! I obviously can’t but I am welcome to suggestions!

 

Challenges

 

Reading Progress

I read 13 books this month, but one was a DNF, so while I count it as a “read,” it was a quick one. I honestly hate it when authors write serials – especially in romance – because I really want to get an HEA in the end and a cliffhanger or a break-up or a non-HEA at the end of the serial is just not what I am invested in. I mean, for the series Something in the Way, they don’t EVEN get an HEA until the third book. Plus, the plot about liking your sister’s boyfriend, whos he is living with, by the way, is just icky.

And also, Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty still is the longest book I’ve ever read this year!

 

Must Read Book of the Month

I read two amazing books this month almost back to back and I was wrecked! Both books were very different, but they brought me to tears!

If you haven’t read any of these books, I highly, highly recommend that you do! Read my reviews of these books if you need more reasons to read them!

    • I know! I actually read a cliffhanger BUT the next book was available already so I wasn’t too bummed about it. Plus that book with the cliffhanger was free!

  1. Oh have fun at kisscon!!! That sounds awesome. And I wouldn’t be okay reading about a girl who lusts after her sister’s live in boyfriend. Thats just kind of icky. Ugh.
    Hopefully you don’t have any more DNF’s!

  2. I know what you mean about traveling, it all just wears you out and you have so much to do in preparation or traveling and right after. I only have on trip for April and it’s my last one until June so I’m excited!

    I loved August sooo much! I’m happy you enjoyed Long Shot.

    Hope to see you at kisscon this weekend. I’m going on Saturday.
