Coming Back?

Hello?? It’s me…. And after 4 months I’m back. I hope. You guys know I’ve never been known for my constancy. I feel like I owe you all an explanation for my halt at the beginning of February. The main reason for it was University. This semester has been quite hectic and I had to choose between my hobby and my degree. The latter won, of course.

However, University is not the only reason why I stopped blogging and it would be a big fat lie to say otherwise. Long story short, I wasn’t motivated enough. Scratch that. I wasn’t motivated at all. I started this blog as a hobby and when 2016 started, it was as if it was no longer that. I was getting no fun out of it and so what was the point?

Believe me, I scolded myself hard enough for not blogging. For not pushing it and just getting back into it. But I also know me too well. If I push myself when I’m not in the right mood, I won’t bend and things can get worse. So I decided to stop altogether and wait until my finals were over to make a decision whether to continue or not.

Up until today, 13th of June, I haven’t made a decision yet (although I said in the first line that I was back) but I wanted to write this as to finally give you all a bit of insight into what was going on. Being honest, I want to be back just like before. Being inconsistent, true, but blogging nonetheless.

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.
