I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
To say I've been in a reading slump the last two weeks would be a bit of an understatement. I've started no fewer than 4 books, only to put them down again and find something else to do. Like dust, or load the dishwasher. I despise doing both, so we're talking serious slumpage. I blame it all on The Last Days of Summer - a book so good it temporarily ruined me for all other books, and was my favorite read of the month.
Still, overall, I read 13 books (17 counting re-reads) this month.
2 of them were non-fiction so I'm still on track with that personal challenge.
5 of them ticked off prompts on the 2015 PopSugar Challenge:
A Book with more than 500 pages: The Candy Bombers
A Book more than 100 years old: The Secret Garden
A Book based entirely on its cover: The Hiss-story of Magic
A Book with a colour in the title: Vision in Silver
A Book with a love triangle: Devil in the Deadline
I decided to try to beat my reading slump back with an immersive re-read of one of my favorite UF guilty-pleasures: The Paranormal Scene Investigations series. I'd like to say they helped me meet my re-read goal, but since I've previously reviewed them all, they don't count. I do think they got me out of my slump though.
