Hello books, I have missed you.

Back when I first started this blog, books were all I talked about – I literally could not get enough them. I remember the time, many moons ago, when I bought books and actually read them. But then darkness fell, and the reading slump made its way into my life and only now, almost 2 years later, have I managed to slay the beast and begin to enjoy what I loved doing most – reading.

I had tried very hard to regain my love for reading, but time and time again I was defeated – my TBR pile growing bigger by the minute. But now, I am ready to conquer it. The slump came to me due to varying factors – finishing my degree, having bad mental health, an inability to switch my brain off and concentrate on a book and last of all, time. However, now I have graduated from university, quit my master’s degree and my job (lets not talk about them) and although my mental health is still in tatters, I know reading is what I love doing and it has helped me through some terribly rough patches before, so who’s saying it won’t again?

This week alone I have read nearly 2 books and honestly it feels amazing. I finished Scythe by Neil Shusterman yesterday, which was glorious, hopefully a review coming your way soon and am now currently reading Circe by Madeline Miller which I am thoroughly enjoying. Both of these books have been on my shelf for years now, longing to be read and now they are fulfilling their purpose and I couldn’t be happier.

Additionally, I know I’ve said it many times before, but this time I mean it – I WILL BE POSTING AGAIN. Due to my anxiety, it is always difficult for me to produce content as I’m always worried that I’ll be judged on what I produce or whether it’ll be to a good quality standard, but I’m working on it (still) and this time I vow to stick to my word. To further this statement, I have also vowed to myself I will start a Youtube channel focusing on the two things I love most, books and games – something that I’ve been wanting to do for many years, but have had the same anxiety issues, but more on this if I actually pull through.

Thank you for reading my words, I hope they were all grammatically correct (I didn’t spend 3 years of my life obtaining an English degree for them not to be) and I will 1000% see you soon.
