The Slump™

As you may have noticed, my blog has been slow lately. Extremely s l o w. Have I lost my passion for blogging? Nope. Am I not enjoying reading as much? Hell no. But there are things that can get in the way sometimes, so I just wanted to take the time to explain why I've been a little absent lately.

Although I don't talk about it very often on my blog, I'm a little more open on social media about mental health, particularly about how I struggle with The Anxiety. This year hasn't exactly been too kind to me in that department, and it's safe to say that my blog has taken a huge step back because of it. I just haven't had the motivation to pick up books and write reviews regularly. It's not that I don't want to read. Because I do. A lot. But sometimes even fictional escapes aren't enough to tempt someone out of a dark place. Some of my most anticipated reads of this year have been sitting on my shelf for months because I haven't been able to get started on them! And so I ended up being faced with the dreaded Reading Slump of 2017.

Yes, hello ATCS, I will start you soon, I swear

No matter what, reading and blogging are two of my biggest passions, so I never really stop, no matter how long it takes me to get around to each little thing. I really just wanted to say that when it's been quiet around here, please know that it's not me actively not wanting to read or blog. I've just been a little slower at everything recently. But it is getting better! I have a few books that I'm finally starting and I also have a few new ideas for blog posts (yay, productivity). Also, anyone who has sent me emails/books for review lately: I'm getting there, I promise!

So, yeah. I just wanted to say hi and let you know that I'm still lurking, slowly getting back to my book blogger self.

ALSO: What is your go-to book to get you out of a reading slump? Please let me know!
