Happy Monday! Not only am I thrilled that I have the day off today but I am also excited to be back in action with the “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” post. During the past few months, I felt the need to take a step back from blogging while I handled some business in my personal life. So, it’s been quite a while since I have used this post to keep me on track! However, as part of my new blogging plan of action, I have decided to commit to using this post every Monday! I plan on using it to keep me on track, help keep me organized and give updates on news happening at Clues and Reviews so I can avoid further book slumps/blogging slumps in the future! Needless to say, I am so excited to be back!
In case you don’t know, It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly post to share what you recently finished reading, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan on reading this week. It’s hosted by Kathryn at Bookdate.
Keep reading to see what I read last week, what I am reading now and what I plan on reading this upcoming week.
WHAT I READ LAST WEEK (March 26, 2018 – April 2, 2018)
Over the past week, I finished four books.
The Art of Fear by Pamela Crane
A Dangerous Game by Heather Graham
Closer Than You Know by Brad Parks
Keeper by Johana Gustawsson
WHAT I AM READING NOW:
Right now, I have a bunch of non-fiction on the go! I am on a bit of a non-fiction kick and finding myself going cross-genre to meet that need! I have a couple of true crime type books like Hell’s Princess by Harold Schechter and The Manson Women and Me by Nikki Meredith. I have also been finding myself really into self-help novels lately, so I’m reading Sacred Powers by Davidji.
I will be starting a buddy read with Chelsea and reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. Otherwise, I am just going to go with the flow and see what strikes me!
So, as mentioned, I took quite a large step back from blogging over the last few months. I even contemplated shutting Clues and Reviews down entirely! I was feeling a lot of pressure, blogging stopped being fun and I lost sight of why I even started my blog in the first place! However, after some discussion with my family/friends/fellow book bloggers, I decided to come up with a plan of action that would help keep me sane AND help me back to blogging.
So, I will be doing this post every Monday. I’ll be posting a review Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and I’ll have a content/discussion post going live each Friday. I feel like that will help give me a bit more balance!
I am also planning on adding different genres so I don’t get any more genre burn out. I love mystery/thrillers but I feel like a little bit of a change (every now and again) will help to keep things fresh!
What are you reading this week? Any good titles I need to add to my TBR?
I’d love to know!
