I've been in such a reading slump up until last night. I got more into my current read. (The Brilliant Light of Amber Sunrise by Matthew Crow)

This book was cute. It was a bit cliche and stereotypical, but I still enjoyed it.
I appreciate the effort she put into researching agoraphobia and trying to show how complex it is. It's much more than just a fear of leaving the house.

3.5/5 stars

Friction | E. R. Frank
post image

From a library book sale.
E.R. Frank was one of my favorite authors when I was younger and this was my favorite book of hers. I'm so excited to read it again.
And that exclusive edition of The Fault In Our Stars! It was practically brand new. 💙
The rest I have yet to read, but I'm excited to.

The Pain Eater | Beth Goobie
post image
Pickpick

This book was intense.
I felt so entirely connected to Maddy that it scared me. Because she said/confronted what many can't.

"That was what rape had taught her, that was the truth she'd taken deep into herself: that without warning, without any possible way of knowing in advance, catastrophe could erupt out of complete ordinariness and be done directly to her. Anyone who thought otherwise simply didn't know yet, they hadn't been done like that."

RadicalReader @blondie I absolutely adore when a book and the characters are on a relatable level 4mo
blondie @RadicalReader Me too! It actually hasn't happened in a long time. The last time I felt this way was a few months ago. I've been in a reading slump, but this has pulled me out of it. 🖤 4mo
RadicalReader @blondie when you discover a delightful book you honestly don‘t know why you hadn‘t read or discovered it sooner or recommended it more ravenously 4mo
blondie @RadicalReader I always had this urge to buy this one, but ended up getting it from the library instead. I'm just glad I read it at all :) 4mo

The Pain Eater | Beth Goobie

I'm enjoying this so far. 💛
I think my last read got me out of my slump.

RadicalReader @blondie do you prefer physical books or ebooks and why? 4mo
blondie @RadicalReader I honestly used to really struggle with reading ebooks and I'm not sure why! But now that I've started reading ebooks, it's really growing on me. I like that I can lie down and just tap the screen rather than holding a book and turning the pages. I still love physical copies though. Always have. How about you? 4mo
RadicalReader @blondie I like audiobooks a lot never lost the enjoyment of being read to such a wonderful experience especially if you get an audiobook read by the author themselves. I love having the physical bookmarks for books though it‘s the simple pleasures in life I got a laminated bookmark I‘m exceptionally proud of 4mo
blondie @RadicalReader That's awesome! I've only fully listened to 2 audiobooks. I can't seem to keep my mind focused on it it for the most part. I made some bookmarks that mean a lot to me, so I understand what you mean :) 4mo

I got this from the thrift store today. I went to another one and saw another book I wanted, but I had to remind myself of all of the books I already have. This will hopefully be more of a catch up year than book buying year.

RadicalReader @blondie I immensely enjoyed this incredible book couldn‘t read through the chapters fast enough and finding a place to stop never seemed to cross my mind because the book was that incredible 4mo
blondie @RadicalReader I'm so excited for this one. I don't entirely remember what it's supposed to be about, but doesn't it involve an agoraphobic character? I might be thinking about the wrong book, but that's what drew me to it since I also suffer with agoraphobia. 4mo

The last 4 days have sucked so much.
9 hour days at work just killed me.

If I have the energy, I definitely plan to get some reading in before I actually go to bed. 💜

Things have been so rough lately.
It's put me in a reading and life slump.
Depression has been kicking my butt to a point I'm considering outpatient treatment again. Bleh.
And with how stressed I've been at work, I asked to be demoted. I no longer want to be in charge. Being an assistant just doesn't work for me. It was hard to bring up, but I had to do it. I'm hoping things will be okay from this point on.

Today was not a great day. I was running on zero sleep, and once I was done with housekeeping, I had to stay behind and finish all the laundry. I dealt with some grosser laundry than usual. It was just a long, exhausting day. I went grocery shopping, then came home and stayed awake for as long as I could manage. I ended up getting a 3 hour nap. Now, I'm pretty awake, but I'm gonna read til I fall back asleep. (Hopefully I even will.)

I decided it was time to go through my shelves and force myself to get rid of and many books as possible. As much as I love my books and would love to keep them all, it just gets overwhelming seeing so many on my shelves. I still would like to get rid of 1/3 of the rest of the ones I own, but I think for today I made good progress. I'm going to sell and donate them. So they'll be going to good homes. 🖤
(And I'm thinking of doing a giveaway.)

Self care since I'm nervous about work tomorrow and it's making me feel yucky. I haven't read much lately. I've been in a book slump for awhile now. So, I'm hoping I'll finish this at least by the middle of the month. I'm trying not to push myself to read if I truly don't feel like it. It seems like when I do push myself, it makes it worse.

I was so excited to read this, but now I'm kind of upset that I did. Don't get me wrong, I thought it was good up until the end. It absolutely ruined it for me. I can see what the author was going for, but it left me with too many questions. It just felt so abrupt and rushed at the end. It didn't even feel like there was any value from reading this at all. This gets 2 stars from me.
