Today I should be reviewing the April book for BBC.
But I'm not, because I didn't read it.
I've been dreading writing this post. Because honestly, I knew last week that I wasn't going to read the April BBC book. Because last week I made some decisions regarding my blog and my life.
Let's talk about some of them for a quick second.
Here's why Blogger Book Club wasn't working for me anymore:
- Because I felt like I HAD to read the book before the end of the month, I wasn't interested in reading the book. It didn't matter how good the book was, I was almost always waiting until the last minute to read it (except for Wallbanger and The Fault In Our Stars) simply because I knew I had a deadline.
- The pressure to pick a new and exciting book that multiple people would want to read every month really stressed me out and completely sucked the fun out of the whole situation.
- I didn't have enough people reading the books with me and creating discussions with me for it to make it worth my while to deal with the above two bullet points.
- It just plain stopped being fun.
I told you all of that to tell you this.. Blogger Book Club is no more.
I need to find a way to enjoy reading again and I need to simplify a few things on my blog to make room for some bigger and better things. On my blog and in my life.
I have a really awful habit of biting off more than I can chew and overwhelming myself. I've said yes to a few things lately and made the choice to take on a few new things that if I don't adjust the current things in my life, then I'm going to turn into a hot mess. Minus the hot.
If you did read The Scent of Lightning and Rain and wrote a review, comment below and I'll tweet it out so others can read it.
Thank you for your patience and, hopefully, for your understanding.
