In my defence, real life is pretty hectic at the moment. Between taking on full and part time jobs and personal life in a proverbial blender, reading a book and reviewing hasn’t really been my idea of a good time for the last few weeks. So much so, that I’ve actually bowed out of ALL the blog tours I’ve signed up for the year so far. I had stops until May. But I really couldn’t fulfill any reading obligations at the present time.
When I start reading a book, my mind shifts and wanders to all the things I’m supposed to do at work and the incessant worry regarding my family. I just can’t turn them off. I’m suffering – my reading and reviewing is suffering. I’m also feeling a little like I’ve sold myself out a little. Lately, I’m a bit disillusioned with the blogging thing. I just feel like I’m not being true to myself anymore. I’d rather not elaborate on that any further for fear that I might hurt other people’s feelings. So let’s just leave it at that.
And that’s what’s going on.
Anyway. I thought I might as well post my book haul for the last two weeks. Sadly, even my usual trip to the bookstore does not offer any comfort. And that’s unfortunate.
