Happenings of Week 26 of 2022
This week has been wild! That is all I can say about it and the stress of seeing all the hate on BOTH sides is getting to my blood pressure so I need a break from it and just going to immerse myself in books and stay off social media for the most part and even bookstagram is crammed with it all (and that is my normal safe place). I am not going to say anything about it except for this: Lets all remember no matter our views on the decision or even abortion itself, to still be kind and gracious to each other. Don’t let them win and fester hate and resentment, it only affects you. Lets continue being supportive to each other no matter our beliefs on policy. (if you want to know my views check out my twitter, its the only place I am honest about my political views as I don’t like to be political in the booking community)
So this week my reading was really good and I am really excited to plan for COYER!! This is my FIRST time participating and I don’t know why it has taken me so long to be a part of it. I do wish I had started it years ago but like they say it’s never too late to try. I had to debate on which season to try out first but I felt like Summer was the most flexible. I will be writing my post for it today and so excited to share all my plans for it. My reading level hasn’t been quite as much as normal (this week at work has been so busy). And this upcoming weekend my brother is getting married, so I am so happy for them and it’s going to be a small celebration, but many of our relatives in Canada will be coming down for it, ironically, the bans on the border have been lifted (and I don’t believe in coincidences) so many of them will be able to come down for it.
Now lastly I wanted to share that there will be a slight change to the site, I have been read much more than normal and so its been stressful trying to keep up on all the reviews. So in the past, I have always written a review on the blog for every book that I read. But it’s becoming too much I think, so I will be doing a review a day and the rest of them will be on the rest of the bookish platforms such as (Goodreads, Storygraph, and Literal). This was a hard decision as I am changing the way I have always done things on here. But on this post, I will still share the Goodreads link so you can check those reviews out if you like :).
