May 2021 Reading Recap

May 2021 Reading Recap

Oh man, I can’t believe that it’s been another month. The end of month posts are a little late this month as I’ve had a couple of blog tours, but I’ve finally gotten time to schedule them in. My reading this month has been terrible. I’ve had a lot going on, and I’ve been super distracted. I still read plenty of books, and I’m not disappointed in myself. Like hell, I can’t help not being able to read properly. But it’s definitely a lot less than other months.

So let’s get into those numbers!

How To Read More

How To Read More

If you wanna point out the irony of this post, following on after a post about being in a reading slump? Feel free. I can make it worse by telling you both of these posts have been written on the same day as I wanted more content.

But there is an actual reason for this post.

Generally, I read a lot. In January and February, I managed to read 20 books each month. In March, I read 29.

And you’d be right! But it does mean that I’m low on ideas. So I thought, why not actually talk about reading slumps?

Let’s Talk About Fanfiction – An Ode To the Wonders of Fanworks

Let’s Talk About Fanfiction – An Ode To the Wonders of Fanworks

Ironically enough, I actually planned on writing this post before there was all the discussion of fanfiction on Twitter the other day. Shame this post won’t be all that timely with my schedule. But fanfiction is something that I’ve loved reading and writing since I was eight years old and as both a writer and a reader. And its something that I feel like it’s important for me to actually talk about.
