Weekend Reading [07/29-07/31] :: When the world feels effed...


I've been watching a flock of blackbirds that have been happily eating (stale) popcorn in my garden. Some days watching critters out my window is about all I can handle of the outside world.

I've been actively avoiding social media this week. This summer the world has just felt full of horror and social media is the place I find it constantly churning. I had to think of it as a mental health break because seeing so much awful day in and day out was starting to weigh me down. I can't say I've been tearing through my reads this week but I have felt more focused when I'm reading.

When the world (or life in general) feels like too much do you read more? Do you find yourself revisiting favorite series or have a book you think of as a comfort read?

I decided to write this post on Thursday afternoon because I know I'll be too busy tomorrow—I'm having family visit this weekend. Meeting my sister-in-law for the first time. Seeing my niece for the first time since she was a baby. And seeing my mom and brother for the first time in several years. Which means I probably won't be doing any reading. It's a very short visit so I want to spend as much time catching up and enjoying their company as I can.

Do you have any special weekend plans? If I do wind up sneaking in some reading time I am working on I'm Not Your Manic Pixie Dream Girl by Gretchen McNeil. I'm liking the idea more than the execution at this point in the read but I'll be reviewing it so I'll elaborate more at a later date. What are you reading? Is it good so far?

On that note I better go change the sheets on the guest bed and vacuum because my dog has been shedding like a sheep being sheared. lol Have a wonderful weekend and tune in next week as I have several events happening! -- Rhi
