|Dean knows how hard it was for me to write this post.|
I might want to blog about books again in the near future. Who knows, maybe during the summer my spark might come back. But for now, that spark is gone and I can not even fake my happiness.
When I began book blogging, I did it for myself. I wanted to talk about the books I loved and I wanted to share that love with the people I had formed connections with. But as time went on and I began reviewing books for publishers, my love, my initial draw to book blogging, faded away. It wasn't about me or what I wanted but what the publishers wanted.
I've always been a people pleaser and book blogging got added to that mix. It was not a good thing for me. As I started college last fall, I've come to realize that while I love reading, and I will always love reading, I'm no longer interested in reading for pleasure and blogging about it. Not only that but I don't have as much time for reading as I used to. My summers will now be spent interning or working or taking classes. The last time I checked my GoodReads, I was 5 books ahead of my reading goal of 100 books this year. I'm currently 12 books behind schedule.
