Well, like July, I didn’t read too much in August. I read three books. In all honesty, though, I’ve been struggling with my mental health for the past couple of months. I’ve had depression and anxiety for well over a decade and both just seem to have been a lot worse recently. I’m on medication and have been for around three and a half years, but I’ve decided that I need to have some talking therapy as well and have referred myself to a local mental health charity that offer counselling and CBT sessions. I’m currently waiting for an assessment, but with any luck, I’ll be able to get some help. I’m down, I’m tired, I’m uninspired and I’m unmotivated and I’m tired of feeling like this all the time. When I’m feeling like this, it can be a struggle to read. I either don’t have the energy or I just read painfully slowly. Anyway, three books is better than no books, right? Here’s what I read in August. If you click on the name of the book, you’ll be taken to my review.
Death of Darkness, Dianne Duvall
The Final Girl Support Group, Grady Hendrix
Out, Natsuo Kirino
