Miss Book Reviews is on a Hiatus
Soo I’ve been missing for a few months now. Missing from this blog that is, not literally missing. Thank god. That would have been awkward.
Why? Well, honestly? I completely ran out of energy for this.
I like reading. I still read. I still visit goodreads. I just stopped book blogging. I had fun book blogging. Right up until I realized it was consuming my life and that it had become my life.
At the time my life was all: How many books can I read in one week? Work. How many reviews can I write up in one go? What topics can I discuss? How many comments did I get on this post? Work. How many blogs have I visited today? Why do half of the comments on my posts feel computer generated/generalized? Am I even interesting? Does anyone actually read this? Work. What books do I need to catch up on? Should I DNF this book or push through it? Work. Why is no one commenting on my posts? Work. Crap I haven’t scheduled a post for tomorrow! Work. Why does this take so much energy? Work. Work. How does everyone else have the time to post so often AND visit other blogs? And then leave detailed and meaningful comments?! Work. Work. Work. How does everyone else book blog and live their lives?!
So I decided to, just… stop. Altogether. Stop.
I just couldn’t hack it. I had no more energy or drive to log on to my email for this blog let alone log on to Miss Book Reviews and write this post stating how I would rather live my life than read my life away.
And that is exactly what I felt like I was doing: Reading my life away. As much fun as I have reading about other characters’ adventures I realized I would have more fun living my own adventures, making my own story, creating my own work or something of that nature. So something had to give.
Miss Book Reviews started to feel like the one thing that made me interesting. And that was a bad thing. When people found out that I wrote a blog they suddenly became super interested and thought it was the greatest thing in the world. Okay, so not everyone thought that, just my mum. And other people. Sure, I’ve had fun. Sure, I’ve liked giving my opinion. Sure, I’ve met a some awesome book bloggers here and I have to say that I am impressed with their time management skills and ability to blog so often. Sure, I’ve really liked being interesting to other people. But I didn’t really want this blog to define me or take over like it had.
I’m still working on defining myself and discovering who I am, what I want to do, where I want to go, how I want to leave my mark on the world. And I’ve been having fun trying to figure out just that.
So goodbye for now book blogging. I have respect for all of the bloggers out there that commit to such a thing! In the meantime, check out my life via instagram pictures! (You may notice I change my hair a lot and that I love selfies haha)
You Only Live Once right?
