July was a really good reading month for me and I also managed to unhaul quite a few books too. I continued reading the few Shakespeare plays I’ve missed so far and also tackled some ARCs. Fingers crossed August is as productive. How was your reading month?

    My reading in July was rather odd. I read nothing until last weekend and then I suddenly read four books back to back, and I’ve not finished another book since. I think it comes down to this intermittent reading slump I’ve been in since March and it is driving me crazy. All I want to do is sit down and read all my backlist books but I’m losing the motivation to do that due to our damn lockdown.

      Reading slumps are the worst! I hope yours improves soon though.
