So… It’s been a while.
ANYWAY. This year was just too much. My job was eliminated due to Covid, so I was a stay-at-home-mom for a year. Then, in May, I went back to work, my son went to daycare, and I have been slowly getting back to normal.
TLDR: It was a hard year and I didn’t have the brain power or desire to blog. I barely even read. The last six months have been spent on Animal Crossing and BOTW. I’m 28 books behind on my Goodreads challenge.
And I don’t care.
The books I have read have been more carefully selected. They have been powerful and funny and sad. I made better reading decisions. After reading books that have touched me on a deeper lever, I want to scream at everyone to read them. And I think i’m ready to do that again.
I’m not going to set myself goals or expectations. I’m going back to reading things I love and then trying to force everyone I know to read them with me. I want to have discussions over a shared love of a story again.
I missed you all and I missed this community and the joy it brought me. So drop some recs in the comments and tell me what book made you the happiest this year.
Here is a quick breakdown of stories I loved so far this year.
