Happy New Year!

Happy 2018 everyone!

I hope 2017 was a good year for you and that 2018 will be even better for you. 😀

2017 was a pretty bad year for me hence why I disappeared a bit in the last few months, I couldn’t bring myself to read and because of that, I wasn’t in the mood to talk about books. I was so tired that I just couldn’t concentrate on anything except work, podcasts and cheesy TV shows. However, in the last few weeks, I slowly started to get out of this slumpy mood and I allowed myself to read total guilty pleasures read (I binge read the first six books in the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning in a month, a urban fantasy series that doesn’t have the best intrigue but that I still very much enjoy). I also gave myself the time to read some books I didn’t have the chance to read earlier in 2017 such as Seven Surrenders by Ada Palmer and Acadie by Dave Hutchinson. I ended up loving Seven Surrenders even if it took me a month to read and I slowly realized that I shouldn’t put pressure on myself to read. I read for fun and it shouldn’t feel like a chore.

Anyway, yesterday I started to write extra short reviews of some books I enjoyed this year and it made me so happy, I didn’t realize writing about books missed me so much. So here I am again. New year, same me, I still love books and I love talking about them and I will continue to do it as long as it is fun.

I wish  you a really awesome 2018, hopefully you’ll see a lot more of me and my posts as I slowly learn to organize myself to take the time to do the things I love.

I will see you again very soon with all the round-up posts of the year.

Happy New Year!

  1. Happy new year! I’m glad to hear things are improving for you – it’s the worst when even the things we love become too hard (I’ve had a bit of that myself this past few months, and I just hate it).

  2. Sometimes that’s all we need, to take a little space for ourselves, enjoying cheesy shows and indulging ourselves: in the end, we’ll come out refreshed in body and spirit – I’m very happy you overcame your negative mood 🙂
    Here’s to a GREAT 2018, and to many good books!

  3. It seems that we all go through these slumps – I think we put ourselves under too much stress sometimes with reading deadlines, challenges and release dates. It’s good just to read for fun. I took a couple of weeks off over Christmas which was really good and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Didn’t feel any pressure or need to write posts and it was great. Perhaps we all need a little holiday from the blogging/reading every now and again.
    Hope you have a wonderful 2018.
    Lynn 😀
