Taking a Break

I’ve often though over the last few years when the pressures of life and daily going ons meant I wasn’t writing as many reviews. I’d watch my scheduled posts dwindle and realise I could take a break, no one would blame me, but then I’d write one or two, get back into the swing of things again and before I knew it I has another few weeks ready to go.

This time I have found that I can have as many half-finished reviews open, have as many recently read books ready to go and no motivation to write anything. I’ve decided to take September off, because even if I do get some posts ready I don’t want to become trapped in a cycle of posting for a couple weeks then a couple of weeks of nothing. It’s happened this month and I didn’t like it and yet I found I couldn’t do anything about it even as I knew those no post days were approaching.

Second lockdown could be to blame for this, a lot of things could be to blame for this, but instead of focusing on why I’m choosing to focus on solutions instead. My solution is to take September away from the blog, despite my intense wish to continue I know I can’t actually do it because wishing isn’t getting anything done.

I will use this time to build up my posts again, coming back strong in October and ready to share some great books with you all. I’m also coming back from a mini reading slump too so there will be a lot of books to talk about on my return.

Don’t forget there’s still more than eight years of reviews to flick through if you’re ever in need of a good recommendation.

I’ll see you all in October!
