Slumps

It feels like ages since I've sit down to write a post and unfortunately it isn't the one I wanted to write about. I've been feeling funny lately. I'm kind of in a general slump. I've been reading, but I just can't bring myself to write down a review or simply a discussion post even though I have a few ideas. 

I wish sometimes I could be more consistent and upload regularly, or even have things already prepared, so when I don't feel like doing anything at least something will pop up and the blog will not feel so lonely in a way. I wanted to write a review for Animal Farm, which I loved by the way, but I haven't and tomorrow I'm going to Valencia and then to my parent's village and I won't most likely post a damn thing in August and that makes me both sad and furious at myself: sad, because I really wanted to get into the blogging wagon again. I miss not only posting here but also commenting on other people's blog. And I sincerely apologise for not doing so in the last couple of days. Furious, because even though I always tell myself to do things when I have to, I end up not doing anything. I know I'm lazy but this is getting ridiculous. If anyone sees my willpower, can you send it to me please? That would be lovely indeed.

So anyways, this is just a very lame attempt to justify my absence. I don't like it but I'm feeling very slumpy in general and I know that I would rather step back than push too much and end up burning myself out.

I hope you guys are having a phenomenal summer!

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
