Hi, everyone! I feel a bit rusty writing this, not gonna lie, but I’m back from my 3 month break. I did not plan to spend such a long time away from blogging, in fact, I didn’t plan on spending any time away, but life, mostly school, got in the way. I also started dating someone – a total shock for me. So that meant that I spent a lot of time talking with them and not so much reading nor blogging.
However, now that I’m on my summer holidays (finally!), I can dedicate my time to my blog and my favourite hobby in the world: reading.
I’m very sorry for leaving you hanging with no explanation, but I promise I’m back and better than ever!
I have recently finished Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo, the sequel to Six of Crows. Unfortunately I had been spoiled for something so I thought that I wouldn’t cry at the end of this book. Boy, was I wrong :’) I have yet to write a review for it, but I will soon (I have a bunch of reviews to get to so be on the lookout for that in next couple of weeks).
In addition to that, I finished reading She Drives Me Crazy by Kelly Quindlen, one of my most antecipated releases of the year, and I’m sad to inform you that I was pretty disappointed by it Detailed review coming soon!
I also decided to at last DNF an ARC that I started in April, its release month, but never had the will to pick up again. That’s Between the Bliss and Me by Lizzy Mason – I explained my reasoning for this here, if you’re curious.
Currently, I’m over 60% into one of my other antecipated releases of 2021 – Not My Problem by Ciara Smyth. If you don’t know by now, this author wrote my favourite book of last year, The Falling in Love Montage (click here for my review), so obviously I had to read her latest novel. I’m really liking it so far – it’s super funny but also deals with some serious topics.
I already have a few posts planned, such as My Summer Reading Plans and The Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag. If you have any specific posts you would like me to do, let me know in the comments!
I’m going to try to be active on your blogs because I miss reading your posts so much. However, something I realised with taking a break is that I used to try so hard to read and comment on every. single. post. and that just did not work for me. It might seems obvious but I came to the conclusion that that’s not doable in the long run, specially if you have schoolwork to get to all day every day. I’ve decided that I’m going to have to be selective with which posts I read and that it’s okay if I interact with a post that’s already been out for like three days. I know that this will help me feel less stressed about blogging and that’s exactly what I want.
Regarding a posting schedule, I’m still not going to set one because I know that would be useless. I’ll try to post at least once a week and then see how things go from there.
Thank you so much for bearing with me – I’m forever grateful for this community 🥺
