Reading Slumps are real.
This month I have been marked by the black spot…AKA a really big reading slump–which was super inconvenient because March was a month where I was inundated with ARCs to read/review. A time truly these passed 31 days have been.
Apart from the great reading slump of 2019, March was a great bookish month, simply because I got to go to my cities annual Teen Book Convention (Teenbookcon)! I got to meet so many different authors–new-to-me and beloved ones–as well learning more from those I aspire to be like. From Angie Thomas to debut author Mimi Yu, I got to meet a plethora of amazing and talented people that took time to give us nuggets of wisdom and advice from their writing journeys.
Color me super inspired.
I may write a separate post about my time at TeenBookCon, but if you are super impatient and love instant gratification (like me), you can check out my bookstagram account (@fictionallysam) to see my highlight reel of my time there as well as some photos that I will be posting throughout the remainder of the week! So be sure to follow me on the Gram to not miss my “funny and hot take” on books in the picture format!
On that super high note, here is my wrap-up of the drought called March!
