The first quarter of this year began on a shaky start. The end of 2021 was a rough one for me and that permeated the first months of 2022. My reading and blogging were poor as I tried to juggle many things at once and overcome the worst reading slump I’ve ever experienced.
As my blogging slowly picked up, so did my reading. And since I completed only one book in January and none in February, I’m surprised I managed to read as much as I did in the first quarter of 2022. The prep for the Magical Readathon certainly helped.
The last quarter of 2021 was a rough one, so I didn’t get as much done as I’d like. It’s not even done yet, but I already know that I won’t complete another book before the end of the year. There’s just too much going on, so my reading speed has been much slower than usual. Below are the few things I managed to complete this quarter.
There were many ups and downs in this year’s third quarter, and I think my reading reflects that. I didn’t read as much as I hoped and what I did pick up tended to be short and quick, like a comic book or picture book. I also rushed to participate in the Magical Readathon and turned to such short reads to make it through.
I enjoy doing these posts at the end of each quarter. It makes me feel as if I’m making immense progress on my reading goals, even if I’m not, and I like being able to reflect on my progress in this way.
The second quarter of the year was good to me, reading-wise. I managed to get through 25 books, and that’s largely because of Wyrd & Wonder, a monthlong celebration in May of all things fantasy. I read much more than I expected for that event and the majority of them were good reads too.
Well, with those 25 books, I’ve managed to complete 80% of my reading goal this year, which is to read 50 things, so HOORAY for me! 😀
Anyway, here are the stuff I got through this quarter.
Can you believe the first quarter of the year has passed? Winter is done, and we’re now entering the spring months that’ll hopefully bring us some new, good reads.
Reading-wise, I think I did good this first quarter. I read a variety of stuff and managed to get through 15 books! If I keep that up, I’ll certainly pass my Goodreads goal for this year, which is at a manageable 50 books. Let’s see what I got through.
I managed to read more than I expected in the last quarter of 2020. I read a variety of things — novels, audiobooks, comics — and even stepped outside my comfort zone to pick up a bunch of romance novels. I’d say it was a good reading quarter.
I can’t believe it’s already the end of the third quarter of the year. I read much more than I thought I would and even managed to read a little of everything: novels, comics, audio books, picture books, and mangas. I’m really surprised at myself. Of course, this is all because I participated in the NEWTs readathon, although I forwent doing a wrap up for it. Well, here are my stats for the third quarter.
The second quarter for the year was much better reading-wise. I kicked my reading slump to the curb, dove into some single-issue comics, and then the pandemic rolled in and grounded me so that all I had left to do was work, eat, sleep, read (and play some Sims, lol).
I read 31 things this quarter. 31! That’s a whole lot for me, although some were comic books that are as short as 20 or so pages. I’m amazed at myself.
The first quarter of 2020 was a trial in my reading life, personal life, and working life. I feel exhausted by it. Reading-wise, it wasn’t bad. I read some good books but didn’t read as much as I would have liked because I suffered from a reading slump. I’m hoping the second quarter will be much better in all areas of life. Well, here are my stats.
My last quarterly wrap up for 2019. Fall has become my busiest time of year but despite all I was doing, I managed to complete 13 books. I’m behind on reviews so most of the titles are unlinked. Anyway, here are the stats:
