Hello lovelies! You might have noticed the blog’s been pretty quiet this month. There is no real reason for this, except that I haven’t really felt like blogging. There was a time that this would really stress me out, but I’m learning to be okay with the ebbs and flows in motivation. Blogging is something I do for fun, and I’m not going to let myself feel bad about taking a break when I need one. (But hopefully I’ll be back to a more regular posting schedule soon!)
In other news, it’s been a pretty busy month! Tom and I were on vacation when August started, and when we got home we still had a lot of settling into our new apartment to do. My parents and sister also came to visit (separately), I bought a bike (I’m loving being able to ride to work!), and we hosted a housewarming party for Tom’s family. I also tried to learn to weave, and it is much more difficult than it looks.
I haven’t finished many books yet this month, but the ones I did get through were very good! I devoured Megan Abbot’s The Fever and Haruki Murakami’s Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, and I enjoyed Virgin by Radhika Sanghani. Currently, I’m slowly making my way through a pair of chunskters: The King’s Curse by Philippa Gregory and We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas. I’m a bit disappointed by the lack of bodice ripping in The King’s Curse, but We Are Not Ourselves is excellent; it reminded me a lot of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn at the beginning.
Up next are The Story of Land and Sea by Katy Simpson Smith and Island of a Thousand Mirrors by Nayomi Munaweera!
