I read nothing. Literally nothing.
There is nothing in my January book haul. For someone who reads an average of, oh about 9 or 10 books a month, while writing her own YA books AND being a full-time mom, well…this is a shocking thing folks!
I had no inspiration. I struggled all of December to finish Beautiful Chaos and The Scorpio Races, which I know are definitely NOT horrible books. But I just couldn’t! I felt like I didn’t enjoy reading anymore. And that there was something wrong within my brain. So when things change and feel differently like that, when a part of you changes, it feels like it will always be that way. A new way of life, where all of the things have changed, and nothing will change back again.
Okay…I may have been a little melodramatic, but I really couldn’t finish anything I started. I couldn’t force myself to do it. And I had other books lined up after, but my OCD would not let me move on without finishing. Finally, in order to save my sanity and my literary loving soul, I took a break.
And I read nothing.
For the entire month of January.
I got caught up on HIMYM and discovered Dr. Who……but read nothing.
Turns out, that was just what I needed. Because now, I’m reading up a storm and will have a plethora of reviews to post very soon. A plethora, people!
Hooray! I have it back!
So here’s to a new season of Readdicted Reviewers. The time between my mental constipation and Connie’s graduation (when she can finally be free to read and write to her heart’s content)…so here’s to a fun and crazy time! Until then, I raise my ereader, and say huzzah!
And, of course, Allons-y!
