One of the reasons I don’t post monthly reading summary posts is because the number of books I am reading in any given month are many, but the number of books I complete from beginning to end are fewer.
My books read often overlap months, which means I only read a few books per month in their entirety. Nevertheless, I’ll list the books I finished in June, since I don’t review every book I read. In sum, I have completed four books during the month of June:
- I’m Too Young for This, by Suzanne Somers, which I didn’t review because the content was so similar to a book I reviewed before on the subject, but with much more emotive interjections than I would prefer. More than that, it wasn’t something I’d planned to read.
- Otherhood, by Melanie Notkin, which I reviewed here.
- Captain Wentworth’s Persuasion, by Regina Jeffers, reviewed here.
- My man Jeeves and Other Early Jeeves Stories, by P.G. Wodehouse, review in draft and coming soon.
It is standard for me to complete four books a month, or an average of about a book per week. Some books, like Wentworth’s Persuasion, are quick reads, but when I read any faster than about a book per week, I invariably find that I miss out on the depth of what I am reading.
Despite having completed only four books this month, I have read quite a number of books besides, and anticipate completing and reviewing those as the month of July progresses.
THIS is why I don’t generally do reading round up posts.
I don’t read enough volume or at sufficient speed to justify it.
But I thoroughly enjoy reading other book bloggers’ reading roundups. They give me something to aspire to.
