WWW WEDNESDAY #1

Good evening everyone!
I don’t remember if I ever told you that I got a new job last September. I now work full hours, sometimes even doubles, in two shifts. Morning and evening shifts. It’s not my dream job but it pays well over double times better than my job as a horse groom.
So I just got home from work, it’s 10:30PM but I will make this post today (since I forgot to make and schedule this yesterday)!

YEAR 2021

Hi all, I hope your year has had a great start!

I was talking about some little changes about me handling this little blog of mine this year. So here’s a wuick little post about that!

• I will not be receiving ARC review requests to my email anymore.
– It was just too much. I had no idea that I would receive 10-20 emails a day! And mostly those requests were about books that were out of my genre pool. I spent a huge amount of my free time just to solve through all of it. And sometimes ended up accepting books that I was not really interested in just because said one had sent me multiple emails throughout the week. I just need to learn to say no more firmly and get it in my head that this is not my job, I don’t have to accept and read books I don’t want to.
And without that bringing a huge amount of extra stress to my shoulders, I hopefully will be able to enjoy this more again.

• I will continue my regular weekly posting schedule: Tuesday for top lists, Wednesday for Ws, Fridays for reviews etc.
– But I will not (I will try not to) get any panics if I for reason this or that, cannot make it in time to publish it. I will, though, try to be better with scheduling post beforehand this year. It just makes life so much more stress-free if I indeed schedule my posts.

• I will not be looking at everyone else’s stats and compare them to mine
– Where those blog stats or reading stats or anything. I need to stop comparing mine to anyone else’s. I do this because I like it and I want to, I don’t need to do it like other’s and I don’t need to read 20 books per month even if someone else does. I read and blog just as much as I can and it does not make me be any less good than anyone else.

All in all, I need to stop comparing my achievements to everyone else! I read two books this month if that’s all I have time to do. It doesn’t matter if the person next to me reads ten books while I read one. Right?

READING CHALLENGE 2021

Hello everyone!

The end of 2020 was really rough. I literally hit the bottom. I was going on like on automaton: sleep, eat, work, kids, sleep, eat, work, kids and so on. So I have been gone a long time. But I’ve somewhat crawled out of my hole and got life somewhat in order. I want to get back to my books that have been calling for me. And I also want to get back to blogging! I did not realize how much I have missed this!

Though I will be making some changes on how I go around all this and what I’ll do and what I won’t do anymore. But I’ll have a separate post for you about all that later on. Today is all about making my TBR for this year!

I can’t even tell you how hyped I got while I was making my list of books to read for this years Popsugar reading challenge. I’m so ready to get back to reading!

But let’s get a look at the prompts and what I’m planning on reading, shall we?

UPDATE

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to drop by and give a little update for you all. I have been gone for a long time now. And I’m still not on the right place to come back. I have been reading your posts though.

My little brother has had a cancer for a year now. He was once on a stage where it stopped spreading and he didn’t need any treatnents. But now during the last months it has spread all over his body. There’s nothing they can do to it anymore so now all we can do is wait and pray that he doesn’t have to suffer much longer.

Even though he is my stepdad’s son and not really related, he has been my baby brother since he was one year old. He’s now a little over 20 and on top of it all, he is also very mentally disabled (i don’t even know id that’s the right way to put it on english) He has always come to me when someone bullied him or there were anything he needed help with. It just feels so unfair! I’d take his place any day If there was a way for me to do that.

So i havent been in the right mind to do anything book related. I can’t concentrate enough to do that. I feel so bad to have my inbox full of review requests that come daily. But i have to prioritize myself now, i do have three kids to take cafe of as well, after all. But just know that I’ll be back 100% whenever I’m ready.

BOOK TAG : MID-YEAR BOOK FREAK OUT

Hiya! I haven’t feel like posting nor reading after Tuesday. Things at work got really bad and I didn’t want to do anything half hearted. So I’ve been “breathing in and out” and getting it all out of my system. And this weekend has been great without any thoughts toward work, just me and my family.

So here we are! WE HAVE REACHED MID YEAR!! What?! I didn’t even realize that. I saw some booktubers doing this tag and I was like “why you doing that now? We are only in June now.” Me and my slow brain from all this heat took some time to think that we actually are in the middle of the year. xD
