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.
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 Janz – The 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.
