If you might have noticed, I took a quick hiatus from posting. I am 100% okay, and I’m not really sure you can call it a hiatus when I have only been doing this for 2 weeks, but I needed to take a breather. I have been going through a lot of things mentally, and while I am not going to be too upfront about it, I will talk a little about what is going on.
Firstly, if you have no clue who I am, know that I just got a puppy. And when I say puppy, I mean a 3-month-old spit fire Golden Retriever who I love very much, but who also finds every single one of my buttons to push. On top of that, we have a 1-year-old Golden Retriever at home, and boy do they like to play. Some days I feel like a WWE ref instead of a dog mom, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Secondly, I have been on the low end of my anxiety. And that is totally normal, sometimes I am really high and sometimes I am really low. In order to cope with those emotions, I have needed to put my mind on other things, specifically on creative projects and not so much on reading. Let’s just say, I do not need to worry about Let’s Talks for a while. With all that being said, I am going to be posting reviews shortly.
Thirdly, you might already have noticed if you came from Twitter/Facebook, I’ve stepped up my game with this blog. I honestly want someone to read this, and while I am so incredibly humbled by my family and friends who are reading this, I kinda want more. I am just a mess of a person who loves books, and I guess I started this because I wish I had someone like me when I was in some of my darkest moments of my life. However, if you don’t know anything about me, know that people absolutely terrify me. I am the person who orders online so I don’t have to go to the store, the person who gets books sent to my house instead of going to my local bookstore, etc, etc. Adrenaline got me this far, but that fear completely crashed on me. Again, totally normal, just need time to cope.
But fourthly, and more importantly, I am really struggling to get into the next book. Even listening to books at work just isn’t cutting it right now. I have recently re-kindled my love for AJR (not sponsored, but would 100% love to meet them instead of taking their money), a pop-band who focuses on spoke-step, a type of dubstep. That makes them sound so millennial, but think of them as the Beach Boys of my generation. Basically what I am trying to say is that my mind is going to music right now and not books. Reading this way, where I crank out a book every day just isn’t realistic in the long-term. And while I hope to get into a routine of posting reviews 2 or 3 times a week, I am just getting over that honeymoon phase and finding my center again.
SOOOO… basically, I will be back soon! AND… as a sneak peek, the next review is going to include scavenger hunts, Cinderella’s castle, and some chipmunks! If you guys think you know the book or just want to give me some encouragement, leave me a comment. And as always, if you would like to talk to me privately, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Until the next book!
