June in Review

πŸ…™πŸ…€πŸ…πŸ…” πŸ…˜πŸ… πŸ…‘πŸ…”πŸ…₯πŸ…˜πŸ…”πŸ…¦

This monthly wrap-up is going to be a little different, as I’m going to try and properly express where I am in terms of reviewing, blogging, and social media. I feel that after all the support I’ve been blessed with, I can at least offer some form of communication.Β 

I read one book in June. It wasn’t terrible, I actually enjoyed it quite a lot, therefore the issue here doesn’t lie with the quality of the material I’m picking up, but with me. My interest isn’t there anymore; it took a dander into the abyss. I can’t exactly say why, either. One thing I’ve observed over the years is that this exact thing happens to readers, often without provocation and warning, so I can only hope it passes in time. If I force myself I may come to resent reviewing altogether, and I certainly don’t want that to happen.

As for my activity on social media and the likes… Well, I hate social media. I hate Twitter. I wholeheartedly detest the drama, the way those with a large following try to use that following to back their argument, and the passive aggressive bullshit. Yes, I have involved myself in petty disputes more than once. They haven’t been my best moments.

I rid myself of Facebook for a reason, yet despite my loathing, my Twitter will remain. I’ll also continue reading at my own miserable pace, and if that results in one book a month, so be it. I apologise to those waiting for a review, just know that it will come with a delay.

Thank you for reading, and my gratitude to everyone still standing by this little blog.

TLDR: I’m not going anywhere, but my activity will continue to be low for the time being. Bear with me, please.

The Dark Game by Jonathan JanzThe Dark Game was a pleasure to read; a story that brought significance to the struggles of writing and the insecurities that plague those creative types. There were twists and turns that I enjoyed, and the short chapters were a boon to my reading mood (of which was lacking). The only negative was that I didn’t cohere with the ending.Β Read my full review here.

    1. I’m into gaming, these days. I think I’ve watched everything to my interest on Netflix. Just waiting for those new seasons to pop on – Stranger Things, Altered Carbon, OITNB, etc. Can’t come fast enough!

  1. I’ve been through more than one blogging slump, and it’s always a good idea to just let yourself be ok with reading and blogging less. Hopefully a break is just what you need😊
