You probably noticed I haven’t posted much this week. And I probably won’t post that much in this coming week either. Because, honestly, I’m just burnt out. Everything has felt extra difficult lately, and while I know I’ll get past it (hopefully sooner rather than later), I don’t want to push myself and make it worse. I’m hoping to get back into at least reading this week, because I have like five ARCs coming out in the next month that I have to get to. But I’m not going to kill myself doing it.
I didn’t read much this week at all. I think I read another thirty pages or so of Middlemarch. I’m actually really enjoying it, but I think I might have to put it on hold to get to a few other books this week. I also read a bit of Sociable by Rebecca Harrington (out March 27), and I’m feeling kind of meh about it. It wasn’t enough to spark my interest, but I am going to try and finish it this week so I can get a review up. Finally, I started the audiobook of A Wrinkle in Time, but didn’t get too far into it because the narrator is kind of annoying. I haven’t decided whether I want to push through or just finish the physical book.
Since I wasn’t reading this week, I did do a few other things. I have been knitting a lot and loving it. I started a sweater for my sister and it’s going really well. Definitely making one for myself next. I also discovered a new app called Reigns, which is a fun and addicting role playing/puzzle game in which you make decisions as the king. It’s been a nice fun little time waster, which I really needed this week.
I hope you all had a better reading week than I did. Let me know in the comments: what’s your go-to burnout cure?
