February’s done and dusted, and I spent most of it in a massive reading slump. There was a point two weeks ago where I’d only read three books, but I did manage to pick up a few things in the second half of the month, and I’m pretty pleased with my progress overall.
I think my brain still needs a fair bit more rest after January’s Covid, so I’m going to be putting myself back on semi-hiatus until, most likely, June. I won’t be totally absent, as I have a lot of review copies to talk about, but I won’t be holding myself to any sort of schedule, so you’ll just see a few posts pop up here and there as I get to them. I also won’t be setting myself any monthly TBR challenges in this time, because I think a good long period of mood reading is exactly what I need to get back to full power. This isn’t what I was hoping for, but I hope you’ll still stick around for the reviews I do manage to get written.
In all honesty, I’m a bit burned out on blogging. It’s a huge amount of work for very little interaction or reward, and while I love getting review copies, the pressure to review can make reading rather stressful as I have to be taking notes, rather than simply enjoying a book. I’m also putting a lot more energy into being an author, which as well as taking up its own time, makes it tricky to read books for fun without one eye on the craft as well as the story! You’ll be able to find me most active as AdieHartAuthor on Instagram, and I do hope you’ll follow me over there if you want to stay in touch while I’m taking a break here.
And now, onto February’s stats!
