June 2014 Recap

You might have noticed that June was a bit quiet on the blog but I had a bit of a blogging slump and haven't spent as much time as usual writing reviews and blog posts. The good thing is that I have been doing plenty of reading so if I can just get my butt in gear and catch up on my outstanding reviews I'll be able to get things organised so I have a few weeks worth of posts scheduled in advance.

Any tips on how to get out of a slump though? I'm still struggling to get myself in the mood to sit down in front of my laptop. I don't think this lovely summer sunshine is helping - I'd much rather be spending my time out in the garden with a book than indoors writing LOL. Anyway, I'm going to do my best to get things back to normal around here asap but I hope you'll bear with me in the meantime :o)
