So here I am checking back into my blog after like 2 solid months of nonstop chaos. I apologize for abandoning my poor little bloggie yet again. I love her so but no matter how much I try to do some reading and keep up with the book world and get involved with blog memes and schedule posts ahead of time, life keeps getting in the way. And I keep trying to tell life to leave me alone and just let me do fun things. And then life is like, haha but you have a baby and you're in grad school and you fall asleep at like 9pm so fun things are just not in your schedule sorry.
And then I die a little inside.
Aaaaanyways, I'm trying to carve out a little time each day to do *something* book-related. Read some chapters, schedule a post, browse NetGalley for hidden gems, whatever. So hopefully that will help get me back on track.
Also, I'm trying to come up with better ways to write reviews. Because I do so love writing my epic-novel-length reviews, but it's just not working for me, obviously. I'll finish a book and then I put off reviewing it because I know I need time to write the long review I have in my head... but then I never get time. And if I do finally get time, it's been so long since I read the book that I can't remember what happened.
So, I'm thinking maybe do some mini reviews? Or try a video review?... orrrr, because I'm like so crazy introverted, maybe like a podcast-type audio-only review? Because the thought of making a video of myself that the world can see is just... no thank you.
So yeah, still brainstorming solutions. But I'm working on it! If you have any methods that have helped you become a more consistent blogger/reviewer, please leave me a comment and tell me your secretssss!
