So my last post on here was over two months ago and I feel like I owe an explanation for my disappearing act.
Shortly after my last post I had some really significant changes occur in my personal life. I won’t go into a ton of detail because I don’t want to air dirty laundry on here but basically I got myself out of a relationship I’d been in for almost two and a half years. Things weren’t healthy and I needed to focus on my own well being. This meant not only going through the struggle of a breakup but also moving out of the apartment I lived in, and back into my parent’s house. This was a very stressful and time consuming project so of course, my social media and interest in books were the last things on my mind.
So these past few months have been a very necessary break for me. I’m doing a thousand times better now. My mental health hasn’t been this positive in years, and I just passed a huge exam for college that I studied my ass off for. I’m at peace with myself and where I’m at in life right now, and I’m finally ready to come back and share my reading adventures with you all.
So to all of you who have stuck around on here, and on Instagram and Tumblr, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience and understanding.
So going forward there’s going to be some changes! I don’t want to commit to a posting schedule right off the bat. I kind of want to ease back into things here. For starters you’ll see some book reviews. And maybe some TV show reviews as well (I’ve been watching Game of Thrones S8 and I have FEELINGS about it.)
I’d like to do one type of weekly post, maybe a Top 3 Tuesday or something like that. I’m not sure yet but I’ll keep you updated as I go.
Some other general updates:
-I changed my Goodreads goal from 110 books to 80, because it was stressing me the hell out to fall so far behind. And 80 is still more than double my goal from last year.
-I’ve pretty much let myself off the hook for most of the reading goals I made for 2019 because I’m working very hard to reduce the pressure I’m putting on myself. I want to get back into reading for the fun of it, not just because I’m trying to hit goals. I’m still keeping them in mind, but I’m not going to be too upset with myself if I don’t reach them.
I’ve read some books since I spoke to you last! They included:
- Daisy Jones & The Six (★★★★★)
- The Dream Thieves (★★★★)
- The Wicked King (★★★★★)
- The Witcher Comic Collection (★★★★)
- Supermarket (★) oh yeah, we’re gonna talk about it

- Kings of the Wyld (★★★★★) We’re gonna talk about this one, too
I am currently reading A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.
It feels so good to be back, and I’m really looking forward to hearing about what you guys are currently reading! Feel free to drop me a comment if you want to talk books 😉
See you all next time.
