I didn’t feel like blogging much this week. Or reading, really. I’m not sure if this funk was caused by me finally relaxing after being done with grad school, or just a bad week, but I decided to just kind of go with it, instead of forcing myself to write mediocre posts. I’m hoping to get back into the flow next week – I want to write a few posts this weekend – and hopefully I can figure out a good blogging schedule soon.
I’ll be honest: part of the reason I haven’t read much this week is because I got back into playing Dragon Age II. That game is super addicting, and killing imaginary people is weirdly relaxing. I’ve realized I put a bit of pressure on myself when I read, so I’ve been gravitating toward other hobbies lately, which I’m kind of okay with. Hopefully I can figure out a way to stress less about reading, but for now, I’m just going with what I feel like doing.
This week, I finished one book: Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour. I really enjoyed this one! It was the cute young adult romance I wanted, but had a bit of depth to it, which I liked. I planned on reviewing this yesterday, but I was not into writing and wasn’t liking the way my post was turning out, so I decided to reschedule it for sometime next week. If you’re interested, keep an eye out for that soon.
Since I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump, I’ve been kind of bouncing around between books. I’m about halfway through the audiobook of Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. I started it as an eb0ok a few months ago, and then stuff happened and I put it down. Now that I’m into it, I do kind of love it, though! I’m also reading Barack Obama’s Dreams From My Father, which is amazingly well-written and impactful. And I’m only about twenty pages in. Finally, I’m reading Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney. This is a slow read, which I’ve found is perfect for bedtime reading. Something about this book speaks to me, and I think I’m going to really enjoy it.
Sorry this post is kind of crappy and all over the place. I’m just not in a good space to blog at the moment. But I hope you’re all having a great weekend, and I hope to have some great posts up for you next week. Let me know what you’re reading this weekend in the comments!
