Tomorrow I’ll be sharing my Winter TBR for Top Ten Tuesday so, as always, it’s time to take a look back at my Autumn TBR and see how many of the books on it I read…
Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune
A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow
Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron
Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson
Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers
The Woman They Could Not Silence by Kate Moore
The King of Crows by Libba Bray
The Factory Witches of Lowell by C.S. Malerich
Ha. Yeah, my autumn reading was RUBBISH.
I managed to read A Spindle Splintered – and I enjoyed it – and I did make a start on several other books on this list, but I’ve been very, very slumpy this autumn. There’s so much I want to read but my new job, which I’m really enjoying, has been taking up a lot of my brain power, and when I finish work I mostly just want to watch Netflix or spend hours on YouTube.
Weirdly I feel more worn out by 2021 than I did by 2020. I was so determined to push through 2020 that I was able to escape into reading, but this year it’s felt like my brain’s been rebelling against it and demanding something else to do. I’ve also been wanting to write my own fiction a lot more this year, and I tend to stray from reading when I’m writing.
Even though I’ve read some amazing books this year, on the whole 2021 has been a bit of a meh reading year for me. Fingers crossed 2022 is better, and that I’m able to read more of my winter TBR!
