I have felt very BLEH all week, surprise surprise. I….don’t know what’s wrong. Like….I’m reading but mostly romance novels and just escaping into whatever has FEELINGS and stuff. It feels completely and totally ridiculous to feel like I’m in a slump when I finished SIX books last week — 4 romance novels and 2 sff novels (two of those books were re-rereads as well). I guess because I’m not reading what I feel like I should be reading it feels like I’m not making progress. I didn’t even START A Curious Beginning so now I’m like ‘when will I get to that??’. Sigh. But thank gods for romance novels because they’re basically saving my life right now.
I mean, I know what’s wrong–obvious depression is obvious–because I just don’t feel like doing anything lately. My to-do list is pathetically untouched. Housework is piling up. Other obligations aren’t being met. I’m not behind in blogging but I’m not as ahead as I once was… I went into the three day weekend like ‘I’m going to get so much done’ and then promptly laid around and…did some reading and watched some tv. Oh well.

I started Race the Sands by Sarah Beth Durst in audio and enjoying it so far even though I didn’t get very far into the book. Hopefully will be able to finish it up this week but it really depends how much audiobook time I get while working.
I decided to say ‘get lost’ to my TBR pile and start Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat because my friends keep going on about how much they love this series and I trust their judgement–they haven’t led me astray yet.
And that’s it. I mean I may or may not binge read a bunch more romance novels, who knows! It’s crazy times and everything is crazy including my reading so we’ll see. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
