So I completely FAILED this month. It shook me because it’s very unlike me. I haven’t had a month of NO READING in a very very long time! I read The Wicked King but after that I was in a MOOD. TWK was a book that left me thinking about it days, even weeks after! But then I just couldn’t get into any other book that I just felt I was forcing myself to read and it wasn’t enjoyable. Even Twitter became stressful, I got social anxiety ONLINE where people go to get away from that. I still have a hard time interacting sometimes and it just sucks. I haven’t even been able to do Tags and those are so muvh fun! This month was not a good
reading month in general and I kept repeating that to myself and I felt like such a failure that I started to question what I was doing trying to blog in the first place. I was putting pressure on myself TO read when I think that was further pushing me away from it. There was A LOT going on already and on top of that, I haven’t been able to get back into a good head space to read. I’m going to avoid my ARCs and jump into a good book to help me out. I’m thinking Mirage or Six of Crows (because I bought both books a year ago and I keep telling myself “after this book” and it just never happens, so it just might!) I really think reading something I’M DYING EXCITED for will help! STRESS has just gotten the better of me this month. How do you mother bloggers do it?
Working full-time and being a full-time wife/mom + College is tough. Throw in a part-time job of reading&blogging and it just started to feel forced and stressful and that is the last thing I want this to feel like! Reading has always been the thing to RELIEVE my stress not add to it!
But I want to thank everyone who’s come to my blog! I will continue to blog because the bottom line is.. I love books. I love to talk about them and fangirl with everyone! I will never be the super awesome Twitter poster or funny commenter BUT I will be here supporting everyone, liking and dully commenting and just overall loving everything all bloggers do because you are all amazing and work so hard! Some posts are just so beautiful and brilliantly written and I can only hope to one day be more like you awesome bloggers! Until then, congrats to everyone on that extra like today or a new follower or a new post you’re super proud of! I’m proud of you too! I’m going to blog when I can and I hope I slowly can continue to reach out to more of you! I haven’t found a bff so if you’re looking for one? Lol. I’m right here. The Book Community is wonderful and many of you seem so natural at blogging it’s inspiring. Thank you to everyone who does take the time to comment and like any of my posts and actually respond to me! Keep up the good work everyone!
Has anyone else gone through this? Has life messed up your relationship with books for any temporary amount of time? How did you get through it? Any advice is welcome!
