What have you been reading this week?

Personally, I guess that I’ve not had a bad week but I wasted yesterday doing absolutely nothing. Every time I look at the news it feels like everything is getting worse. From 2016 onwards, the UK has just become more of a shitshow and it’s exhausting. Normally I’d just escape into fictional worlds but it’s become more difficult to do that. I genuinely don’t know how we’re going to get out of this awful mess that we’re in. People will continue to vote for the Tories despite the fact that they’re doing everything they can to destroy ordinary (or non-rich) people. But let’s not pretend I’m some sort of political commentator. Back to the business at hand,

What have you been reading this week?

I’m hoping that I’ve turned a corner this week. I’ve finished a book that I’ve been trying to get through for ages and it feels like I’m back on top. I’m ready to get stuck into something new and can’t wait to tackle more of my TBR.

What have you been reading this week?

I have to be honest, I’ve not had a great week work wise. It’s been so stressful and busy that I’ve just been exhausted. Although, I have actually made progress with my current physical read. Yes, I’m still not halfway through but I’m so close. I guess it’s been a while since I read a book over 300 pages and it’s proving tricky. I’ll have to get a lot done today because I’ve got loads more books waiting for me. Loads of books that I want to read.

What have you been reading this week?

Once again I’m having to admit that I didn’t read enough this week. I’ve finished a couple of audiobooks but I’m still struggling to read physical books. I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I have to sort it out. This week, I’m planning on getting to bed earlier and reading for at least an hour. Not just to help me read. I’ve been sleeping terribly recently.

In previous years, I’ve started off slowly and sped up as I got closer to December. This year, it feels as though the opposite is happening. I’m only getting slower. It doesn’t help that I’ve had a lot of social engagements recently. It’s also due to a lack of motivation. Maybe 2022 had too strong a start and I’m burnt out?

What have you been reading this week?

We’re a little late with today’s rundown because I had a rare night out on Saturday. I was a dirty stop-out and didn’t get home until the wee hours. Still, I’m here now and we’re ready to take a look back on the week. I have managed to read something but it’s not been a great one. I really just need to get myself back into reading. I’m too distracted at the moment.

What have you been reading this week?

What a week it’s been. The weather has cooled off but that hasn’t encouraged me to read more. I also haven’t felt much like posting to Instagram. I’m just getting a bit weary of it all. I regularly see people on their telling everyone to stop moaning about reels because it’s the only way to grow your account and get more business. I understand that but not everyone on social media is trying to get a bigger following or sell things. What about the people who just want to connect with like-minded people? This is just more proof that Instagram is more about profit and marketing than anything else.

What have you been reading this week?

Are you sick of me complaining about being hot yet? Well, it’s bloody hot. So hot that I forgot to post my film review. Never mind. It’s coming up this week. I’ve also been away this weekend visiting a friend, which is why this is going up so late. I’ve only been back from my holiday for a couple of weeks and I already feel exhausted again.

What have you been reading this week?

My first week back at work after my holiday was a long one. I definitely would have preferred another 7 days off before going back. It was also business as usual on the blog. Although, I did skip the film review this week because I had too many book reviews to get through. I don’t like the idea of still reviewing July reads halfway through August.

What have you been reading this week?

After a couple of weeks lost to Covid, I’m pleased to announce that I’m officially Covid free. I’ve been feeling better since last Monday but now I’m actually able to leave the house again. It’s such a relief after testing negative so many days after my symptoms were gone. It also meant that I should be able to get back on track with my reading. I’ve already finished a couple of books last week, so I’m feeling pretty positive going into the next 7 days.
