In Case You Missed It
You may have noticed a lack of tweetage and various other interactions from us this week. For that, we apologize, but in our defense: both of our lives are in major flux right now. February is going to be a tricky month for us.
Here’s all the stuff that we posted this week.
- Kelley reviewed Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein.
- Asti reflected on how much it sucks to leave books behind.
- Kelley explained why she totally failed her reading plan for January.
- Asti reviewed another round of novellas.
- Asti unveiled a new book recommendation feature: Bookish Mail.
Our Lives This Week
In Asti’s Life…
Well, hello there Interwebz. Long time, no see.
I’ve really been avoiding my laptop this past week. I didn’t schedule any social media messages for the blog. I didn’t respond to emails or tweets. I didn’t even update this post until the last minute. I just didn’t know how to be.
I don’t know how to explain what going on in my head. And each time some lovely supportive friend asks how it’s going or tries to check in with me, I don’t know how to respond. It’s just been easier for me to keep myself occupied with binge watching TV and doing my room than going online, which is such a strange thing for me to say. Hopefully I’ll get back to myself soon.
In the meantime, have you seen my wall map I drew? I’m pretty darn proud of it, just because I didn’t think I’d be able to pull it off. It’s the small accomplishments like that that really make a difference when you’re feeling so low.
I hope you’ve had an amazing week. And for anyone I may have bothered with my distant attitude this past week, I’m sorry.
