My week in a nutshell is a weekly post I put up on Sundays to share what happened on and off the blog during the week. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received.
Hey Book Nerds!
I hope you are all having a good weekend. I’ve been fighting off a migraine. Every time I think I have it under control I see the news or login into social media and the damn migraine is back again. I know it is stress. We are living in a very stressful world right now. Please don’t tell me not to stress it. That just makes me mad and makes my headache even worse. I can’t control my anxiety. It’s incredibly frustrating when people tell me it is mind over matter and to just turn it off. I’m sorry it doesn’t work that way. I’m doing my best to practice self-care. I stayed home all weekend and I’m trying to avoid social media. It’s hard when my notifications go off and then well I read my feed. I might have to just put my phone in “Do Not Disturb” mode until my anxiety levels go down. I know I’m not the only one out there that suffers from it so if you have any coping tips feel free to let me know down below. Just don’t tell me it’s going to be okay. That does not help at all and it makes me feel like I’m being told my feelings are invalid.
That said on to bookish shit. This was the final week of the Winter’s Respite read-a-thon and I’m happy to say I think it was fairly successful. I will be posting my wrap up for the read-a-thon soon. I still have to film it, which was the plan for this weekend but well see paragraph above.
The blog was a bit quiet this week. I apologize for that. Please be patient as I’m still trying to get back into my schedule since the whole being sick thing. I doesn’t help that I still am not 100% because my anxiety is so damn high. I will be back on track for February though, I’ve already started scheduling posts for that month both here and on my YouTube channel.
MY CURRENT ADDICTION
It’s a book actually. I normally try to find something not book related for this section but nope not this time. Susan Cain’s Quiet is just..wow. I have no words. If you could hear me while I’m reading it, it’d go something like:
“Holy shit yes!”
“Oh my gawd yes!”
Yeah, I’m sure my neighbors might think I’m doing something other than reading. I can’t help it though, I’ve never identified with a book so strongly before. Introverts unite! Quietly of course but UNITE!
BOOKS I READ THIS WEEK
They were all part of the Winter’s Respite read-a-thon so I won’t post them yet. Once I upload the video I will share it with you.
