? Is your TBR is getting the best of you? . Real talk time: I’ve been in a bit of a reading/blogging funk the last few months. (You can probably tell by the lack of activity here.) I think it’s partially because I’m more or less reading on a schedule, something that never really interested me. It makes blogging feel too much like work and, at the end of the day, this is still a hobby. It’s supposed to be fun. It might be because I took on too much, but I’ve found I kinda resent my ARCs at times. THAT IS NOT OK. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not ungrateful. AT ALL. I’m giddy every time I receive a new book for review. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to read SO MANY of my favorite authors’ words before they’re released. But I have all these books on my shelves (and TBR carts and ereader) that I was excited about at one time. I want to give them some love, too. . I got to thinking about all this over the weekend and decided I need to shift my focus a little. Hit the reset button if you will. I only have a couple ARCs for March and I’m going to (try to) keep it that way. (The struggle is real.) Instead of focusing on the new and upcoming books in March, I want to truly tackle my TBR. With that, TBR March was born. I got some good feedback when I posted about it on here, so I decided to make it “a thing”. . If you feel like your TBR is getting the best of you, you’re not alone. Join me for the TBR March Reading Challenge (#TBRMarch19). Check out the full details on the blog.

This Week’s Book Haul:
digital ARCs thanks to the authors and publishers:
Freebies I snagged because I have no willpower:
This week being an adult totally kicked my butt. My bank account was overdrawn, I hurt my back, and I have a cold. Also, we have an appraisal on the house this week so I have to clean from top to bottom. Does adulting ever get easier?!? Why do I feel like they should revoke my adult card or something. I obviously do not have a handle on this.
Its been so rainy here that everything is flooded. Wednesday we actually got some ice/freezing rain so we had a 2 hour delay for school. By the time my principal made the call, I was already in my car. So I just went on in and spent some time getting caught up on paperwork. It was actually kind of nice!
I think I’m out of my reading slump. I have had a string of really great reads lately! Hopefully it stays good.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
Adulting sucks, FOR SURE!!!
SOrry to hear about your long week, I had one of those too. So, I feel ya.
Sorry your week wasn’t so great! I hope you feel better.
I saw the TBR for March, I am currently doing what I thought was the year long one so I am sort of confused why she has one for the month I need to look at that.
I hope this week is better for you Samantha! Happy Reading! xx
Well samantha I don’t think we can have our adult card revoked sadly. It’s true that I often think fondly and longingly about my childhood when we had not a care but alas there is no way to go back. So my advice would be: chin high girl and make the best of it! Hope next week is quieter!
I think we all need a break from being an adult once in awhile. I’m burying myself in worries about things I can’t do anything about. It would be nice quiet my mind once in a while. My escape is through reading and you sure have some great escapes this week. Hang in there:)
Yeah even vacation requires adult skills if you do anything. This is one reason why I thought being married would be great in having a partner so for a day here and there one could retreat and most of the time the workload would be shared. Unfortunately I was the primary adult. It ends up being easier not having a partner when it is really just another responsibility. At least now I know it’s me. I don’t count on anyone who doesn’t follow through.
It’s finally stopped raining. I’m so happy! And I do have great books!
I cannot even tell you how many times I got the call about a delayed opening, when I was already at school. Like you, I just used the time to set up labs and make copies, etc. Sorry to hear about your week. Adulting ain’t easy, but hopefully things settle down for you.
Being an adult is frequently no fun, I agree lol.
Glad your slump is over at least. Have a good week!
I’m also having problems with adulting. I’m also having some financial problems, something I wouldn’t be worried about at a young age. Let’s hope we both get things settled!!
Ugh, what a week. One of those “when it rains it pours” times. I sure hope things turn around this week. And maybe even some better weather? One can hope. At least the reading slump is gone. Silver linings!
Sorry you had a bad week. I also picked up Terry Spears today.
Yes, if I ever had a chance to visit my ten-year-old self..I would say slow down, fight adulthood as long as you can! Hope this week is better for you. You’ve certainly got some good reads to keep you busy.
