The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 12/01/13

As you may have heard, I’ve been slumping pretty hard. Thank you so much for your comments and concern. I appreciate it more than you know.

Did I burn myself out by reading so much this year? Am a having a case of blog-fatigue? Has Netflix seduced me into too many manic viewing sessions? (Parks & Recreation, 30 Rock, New Girl)

I’m afraid that all of the above is true. I don’t know how the rest of 2013 will play out but I can feel the book love coming back. WHEW!!

Since my last wrap-up…


Someone Else’s Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson

The Family by David Laskin


The Dinner by Herman Koch

Salt, Sugar, Fat by Michael Moss

Want Not by Jonathan Miles

The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly by Sun-mi Hwang

Currently Reading:


No promises, no plans. That’s the way I envision the tail-end of 2013.

I hope you’ve had a great couple of weeks! See you again soon. I promise.

  1. Glad to see a wrap up post, since I've been seeing your books on GoodReads. It's funny, you started reading The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly right after I came home from talking about it at the bookstore – it's so small and cute! Hope that this keeps working out for you!


  2. Just little bits of Relentless Reader is better than no Relentless Reader… Enjoy your holidays and I'll read whatever you publish.


  3. I am just on my way up from a slump right now. Don't beat yourself up about it, do what feels right, watch all the Netflix you need to – and the book buzz will return eventually. Enjoy the holiday season!


  4. Sorry to hear about the slumping! This whole year has been like one big blogging slump for me. Thankfully, reading has not followed suit, so good books are still being enjoyed despite the lack of good writing about them on my blog. Eh, well, it's December – definitely the time of year to let yourself do what you like and like what you do even if that happens to be Netflix over books and reading. 😉


  5. Girl, you know how much I adore you. I'm glad you're coming out from under your slump- those are the worst! You just let the end of 2013 play out and do whatever you want. Enjoy the holidays!


  6. Are slumps contagious? If so, then I'm catching it. If i don't get inspired in the next 2 days then the slump is official. It happens to all of us from time to time.


  7. Slumps happen. And really I don't read half of what you do and I hit slumps! By way to beat it is not to make reading plans – just wait for a book to call to you!


  8. Glad to see you here this week. Understanding the slump and no fixed commitments. Seeing you a little is better than not at all.


  9. I'm currently in a slump too, despite saying to myself I wanted December to be really good. Considering the amount you've read I think it's kind of natural that this is happened, and definitely don't worry about it, you've read enough to counter the reading effects of a hundred slumps!


  10. Just do whatever you like! You don't have to blog if you don't want to, though we all like to read your stuff 😉 Hug! Hope you'll feel more into books soon!
