January 2015 Wrap-Up

I really want to blame January being a not so good reading month (at least in terms of my usual reading numbers...or maybe just those few months when I was reading twenty plus books...I miss that...) on school...unfortunately I didn't even start school until January 20th so that doesn't exactly work.

I guess I slipped into a bit of a reading slump when the beginning of 2015 finally rolled around. I couldn't find my reading groove, I was either reading books in entire sittings (rare) or muddling through (near constant). The books weren't quite right and my mood/heart just wasn't in it.

 I did manage to read fourteen and that's better than I thought I would (and better than I honestly thought it was going to be judging by the first half of the month) so I'm content with that. And I did say that I wanted to stress less over my reading numbers this year and technically I have stayed ahead of my Goodreads Challenge at almost all times so I'm really doing better than I'm giving myself credit for.

But I'm still hoping to be able to read ALL THE THINGS come February. But for now, let's check out January...

  1. Reading slumps are never fun - I hope you get through it soon, Ash!

    1. I second that! Thankfully I think I'm finally starting to really work my way out of it. My reading has definitely picked back up again. [:
