August Wrap-Up, September Currently Reading

01 Sep

Hello, it’s September and I’m finally recognizing that I’m in a book slump. It’s awful, man.


Overview of Blog Activity for the Month:

Total posts for August: 6

Apparently I’m in a posting slump, too. 😛

Notice there’s no haul though – yay for sticking to my book buying limit.


Reading Overview for the Month:

Books:

Slaughterhouse-Five
Slaughterhouse-five by Kurt Vonnegut. Listened to this one on audiobook after being told do read it by a few different friends. It’s definitely a trippy book and I feel like I need a physical copy to read it again before I can fully take in all the stuff. It was really good though – 4 stars

Articles:

*cricket*


Progress on 2016 Reading Goals:

  • Read 29/50 books
  • Picked up books out of interest instead of hype: 1/1
  • Books unhauled from disinterest or dislike: 0
  • 2/16 16 in 2016 books completed

Progress on Book Riot Read Harder/TBR Jar Challenge:

Woops.

    Do you like the Invisible Man so far? I’ve seen the book but I am not really sure yet if it something I’d like to read or not.

      It’s decent – I’m iffy with classics as it is, so listening on audio is definitely helping me. I like it though!

    Gosh, I read Invisible Man years ago and forgot much of it but I recall enjoying the story. I picked it up by accident, actually, because I was looking for Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, which I’ve yet to read.

      Yep – I’m liking it as well. It being on audiobook is definitely helping me though.

    ahh massive sympathy for the reading slump- that’s always the worst :/ and I can sympathise about the posting slump- cos I’m in the midst of one myself- I just have had no time since I’ve been back!
