June 2021 Wrap Up

Hello!

I hope everyone has had a good June. My reading wasn’t great in June but to be honest I’m doing a lot of research at the moment so I am reading just not books I would blog about. I am also in the mood for reading longer books at the moment which is slowing me down as well.

Statistics

Only 5 books this month and it was nearly 4 but I managed to squeeze in a short book yesterday. One of the books also does not have the page info listed so didn’t show up on the statistics so I should have had 2 books in the 500+ range.

March 2021 Wrap Up

Hello!

Happy April Fool’s Day everyone. I hope none of you have succumbed to an April Fool’s joke today.

March was a better month for me reading wise, which was good, but I fear April will not be so good due to assignments again but I live in hope.

January 2021 Wrap Up

Hello!

I can’t believe we are already in February! I think I am the opposite to most people, in that for me January flew by.

So here is wrap up!

Statistics

This is much better than January 2020 as I didn’t manage to finish one book in January 2020 as I was in a big reading slump.

November 2020 Wrap Up

Wow, how did the end of November arrive? I am getting so excited about Christmas and my Christmas books are really helping me get into the festive spirit. Today I am sending my husband in to the loft to get the decorations down.

November has been a really good reading month and I appear to be catching up on my Goodreads reading challenge.

So here are the bookish stats!

I will be honest I don’t think the page number chart is quite correct because Story Graph didn’t have the correct editions for a few of the books I read, but they are close enough.

October 2020 Wrap Up

Another good month for reading and I seem to have come up with a good balance between studying and fun reading. Whether that balance will continue once I get into writing assignments is yet to be seen.

This wrap up post has a new addition of statistics I am very excited, even if I never have been that keen on pie charts. I think they will grow on me.

I love all the different moods of the books I have read.
Quite an even balance this month.
Another equal balance.
Definitely two firm favourites this month.
