I don’t know if it’s because it was the end of the year and I’m tired because of 2015 or what, but this month, I didn’t read all that much. I resorted to audiobooks (“memoirs” of YouTubers) because that was easier for me to listen to books rather than read with my own eyes. It happens…
The fact that after almost 2 months I’m still working my way through The Dark Forest didn’t help either. I read about a quarter of this book this month, but then had to put it aside because I wasn’t enjoying it. In the meantime I picked up Monsters of Men, and oh Joy… I’m not enjoying this one either…

Slow reading months happen… Sometimes they’re slow but they’re good (in terms of the quality of the books you’ve read), sometimes they’re just slow and not really enjoyable… But I guess I’m just asking for it, because I could very easily DNF those books I’m not liking and move on to better things, but I just really don’t like to DNF books, especially ones I spent money on (The Dark Forest was not cheap), so I struggle a bit…
