Sunday Salon - It's Hot Out There!!!

We're in the midst of a heatwave here in New York, as most of the rest of the U.S. is experiencing as well. We started with 103 degrees on Friday and it's been hovering near 100 all weekend. It's sweltering, you can feel the steam when you walk outside. So, I haven't been going out much. My air conditioning works really well :)
First, I'd like to thank Cheryl at CMash Loves to Read for making me her Shining Star this week. I'm so honored by this. Cheryl has such a great blog. If you haven't checked it out, you really should.
You'd think I'd be catching up on my reading since I've been inside from the heat, but I haven't. I think I'm in a reading slump which I'm attributing to the overwhelming amount of reviews I have waiting for me. Not only can't I catch up, but I'm a very moody reader and sometimes I just want to read for enjoyment. Right now, I'm in a cozy mood and I think it's making it harder for me to read anything that's not a cozy.
I thought I'd ask this - how long does it take for you to get to a review? Has it ever taken several months? Nobody is putting any pressure on me, it's something I'm doing to myself. Do you guys ever experience this? What do you do about it? I just started to read a cozy which I've been wanting to read and I think it helped with my slump, a little bit.
Because of my slump, the only book I finished was an audio "Dead Reckoning" by Charlaine Harris. It now completes my Sookie Stackhouse reading challenge. I still have to write up the review and post it.
That wraps my week up in a nutshell...it's 9:30 in the morning and it's already 84 degrees with a heat index of 90. It's crazy! I only like this weather when I'm on vacation in the tropics :)
Hope you all have a great week!
