Hello everyone! If you’ve been following me for the last few weeks, you will know that I’ve been insanely busy. Kids are finishing their second week of school, work has been ridiculous with 14+ hour days, and everything else in between. Because of this, my anxiety has been on high alert and i’m extremely overwhelmed. I’ve decided that I need a break. I need to take a couple days to step back, breathe, relax, and recharge. SO – I’ve decided that it’s time for an impromptu readathon!
I introduce: The Off The Grid Readathon! The whole point of this is to stay off my phone lol. Stay away from the distractions of social media, the pressure of the blog, and anything else that keeps me away from reading. I want to be able to stay completely focused on my book and just lose myself in the world and the characters. I know this happens to us all – we sit down with a book, notice we have a social media notification, and 30 minutes later we realize we just wasted a shit ton of time falling down the rabbit hole.
Effective immediately I AM OFF THE GRID!!! I will not be responding to blog comments, I won’t open social media. I will just read!!! And I can’t freaking wait! I will have my weekly wrap up scheduled for Sunday, but won’t officially return until Monday morning 🙂
This isn’t going to be easy. It’s safe to say that it’s become habit for us all to grab our phones when we have a spare minute. I hope to retrain myself. The goal for this weekend is to finish THE CITY OF BRASS by S.A. Chakraborty (which I am freaking loving!!!), do a rereadof STRANGE THE DREAMER by Laini Taylor, then immediately get to the sequel MUSE OF NIGHTMARES. It’s been so long since I’ve read Strange the Dreamer and I forget a lot of the details. All 3 of these books are over 500 pages so……. not sure if I will finish them all lol. If things go well, I might just make this a monthly thing!
I’m off to read now – hope you have an amazing weekend filled with lots of adventures!
Until next time, happy reading!
