It’s something I see on book blogs and BookTube: People planning out their month with what they are going to read. I’d read/watch these in awe. “I should do that,” I thought to myself with optimism I thought long dead.
So, I did just that. My October 2018 TBR was made and posted.
“This is it,” I told myself. “I’m going to be an awesome blogger with an awesome TBR post and it is going to GET DONE.”
Eleven books were on my TBR. I seemed to have ignored the fact I haven’t read more than seven books in a single month in years. Years. Also, amnesia must have hit because I seemed not to remember how big of a mood reader I am.
It’s halfway through the month and I’ve read four of the eleven. I don’t think I’ll get through the other seven. Especially given the current four books I’m juggling are not any of the books that are left.
I thought about beating myself up about it. Even got the boxing gloves ready and laced. However, I can’t help but notice – I’m reading more now than I have in years. Years. Blogging and reviews have encouraged and given me drive to read daily. I love it.
You know the best part of all of this, though? Through blogging and interacting on platforms like Twitter, I’ve met amazing people who share the love of books with me. It feels like I found my people.
It’s a nice feeling.
May you get lost in a book,
