I won National Novel Writing Month in 2017 and finished graduate school in the same week, so reading has been in a strange place for the past four weeks. I read a work that made me really excited for my project that’s with my beta readers, so that’s a good way to regain some momentum.
This October was one of the best for new releases. I read a healthy balance of early releases and books out now. My reading speed wasn’t quite the same (yay classes and textbook), but hoping to keep momentum going as the year rounds out. Also, it’s the anniversary of Reading Recap!
September was a weird month again. Finished a writing project, fully settled into my apartment, and started classes for the last time. The reads this month were some catch-up reads, but also a few anticipated books.
August 2017 was my busiest month. Between wrapping up my summer project, taking a hiatus from writing, a family emergency, and moving, reading was a welcome refuge. Here’s what I learned this month.
