On Needing a Teeny Tiny Break

Sometimes, you just have to keep those little piles of too-read books from accumulating in corners and crooks of your home. Books that were gifted. Books that you bought on a whim. Books you put aside, but desperately want to crack open. Books that were on inter-library-loan waiting lists for months. And months. And months. And are finally here. All. At. Once.

Lately, you need to read with abandon without sticky notes at the ready. Read without writing book reviews. Just because. You need to escape. Go on a reading binge. And binge, binge, binge. Just for a bit. For a couple of weeks.

Then, you’ll have your fill and miss writing reviews. Resurface. Refreshed. And be at the ready for those to-be-published  galleys needing to be reviewed in August. All will be well. But for now, you’ll catch up. Chillax. After all, it’s summer.

  1. I totally have been going through something similar lately. This happened last summer too, where I felt like I needed to take a little time off from blogging. I hope you have a good break, and we’ll be here when you get back all relaxed and refreshed!

      Thanks, Karen! Finished one book yesterday. Halfway through a new one today (finally reading Lena Dunham’s book). I have many more lined up for the next weeks. No reviews. Just reasding. With abandon. A short July break from book blogging.

      I’ll keep reading my fellow bloggers’ post. Looking forward to your Monday post tomorrow. Cheers!

  2. Sounds like a good idea. We’ll be here when you re-surface!
    Why do library books always come at once? It never fails.
    Have fun reading! 🙂

      Ahhh… read all my library books. (Hausfrau was my favorite. A MUST_READ!!!) Now, moving on to my first-ever Stephen King novel: The Stand. Cheers!
