Weekly Wrap Up – March 18

weekly wrap up

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?

  1. Annoying narrators are the worst! Even if it’s a book I’ve read before on paper and love, an annoying audio book narrator can make me not want to read it. My attempt at a burn-out cure is usually taking a break from whatever it is that is making me feel burnt out, if possible. Hope you feel better soon! ❤

    1. Thanks! I’ve been trying to take as much of a break as I can, but then I feel guilty about not blogging and that doesn’t help. But I think I might do something nice for myself this week (a visit to the dollar bookstore maybe) and hopefully that helps a bit.

  2. Sorry about the burnout. It’s happening a lot lately. Maybe it’s the change in weather/seasons… tax stuff… lol… not sure this will help, but I try to keep a To Do list of everything that needs attention and a lot days to work on it. Not to overwhelm myself, but to have a sense of when I can truly accomplish it all – then I don’t worry when the list is too long… as I have a day or time set to focus on it. Give yourself enough space… don’t take on anything new for a while… figure out what’s the priority… and save a few minutes several times a day to just relax so you are as strong as you can be.

    1. Thanks! I’m usually pretty good at keeping to do lists (I forget everything if I don’t), but I haven’t been great at paying attention to them lately. We have a three day weekend next week, and I think that might help. Just an extra day to recharge.

  3. Ahh same, I’m burnt out too, thus I’m on a semi-hiatus as well. Do enjoy life away from blogging! That’s what helps me motivated to blog again, and it’s a healthy thing to do every once in a while. 🙂 Best!
