I had no plans for this month since my previous one didn’t go too well, so I went back to my old as-you-like-it way of doing things. February was a roller-coaster of a month for me. I’m currently on a low – the annoying trinity of cold, cough and fever have descended on me. This week has been far from productive, and I’m in a reading slump currently. Let’s see how the others went.
I started a new story for the Fictional Fridays section of my blog, but that was it. I’ve only been reading and commenting on articles about writing but done very little of it. I’ve taken a graphology course this semester and it’s making me try writing with a pen and paper instead of typing away on my laptop. I tend to waste a lot of pages since I’m an obsessive editor, but writing on paper is such an amazing experience that I’m torn. Which method of writing do you favour? Let me know in the comments section at the end of the post.
It has been a good reading month for me. So far, I’ve completed 20 books in 2017 and I’m more than happy with that number. I have finished off all my reviews for books that have been released and I’ve received a copy of, so that’s a definite plus. My favourite book for this month is In Truth and Ashes by Nicole Luiken, the third book in the Ourselves series. I’m so glad I got an e-ARC for this one and that I read the entire series because it’s made it to my top five favourite fantasy series now. Check out my review here.
However, I’ve fallen into a slump lately. It’s not that my TBR pile has gotten any lesser, it’s just that I don’t know which series to pick up next. I’m supposed to review the second book of a series for which I received an e-galley, but I’m unable to find the first book. As I hate reading out of order, it’s killing me. I have another trilogy to read and review, and I got all the three books from the kind author, but the release date for the final book is much later. Now I’m not sure which to pick up first. Do you have any advice to get through this?
How did February go for you? Share your experience and thoughts on the questions I’ve posed in the comments section. Have a wonderful weekend ahead, and what’s left of February too. 🙂
