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.

Reading Diary | February Books | 2018

Feb, 1st - 15:15. Finished the second book in the first volume of the Riyria Revelations and I was pleasantly surprised. I still think the world building is the weakest thing about the story because it's not greatly developed but the story is well-written and entertaining. I'm planning on continuing reading the series because now I'm intrigued enough to want to know how everything will unfold. Feb, 7th - 10:33.  I'm finally prepared to go and see the movie Call Me By Your Name because I just finished reading the novel. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It is a celebration of love and an exploration of sex and identity. It's quite explicit though so if you feel uncomfortable with that keep it in mind if you're planning on reading it. My full review of the book is HERE (I also talk a little bit about the movie).
