I hit the biggest slump in September. I moved across the country, and the stress and admin of that made reading almost non existent for me.
Thankfully, in October I had settled into my new home and my new job. Had I also settled back into my groove when it came to reading? Now I had access to all my books again, did I actually get to read any of them?

One of the worst habits I’ve picked up recently is gathering free books for my Kindle. It feels like a good chance to try them out, especially if it’s a genre or trope I’ve never read. There doesn’t feel like anything to lose if I don’t love the book.
Have you heard of, or read, any of these books? Do you know where I should start?
