The stress of this damn world history event has really caught up with me and this cultivated in me reading less than nothing. I tried putting my energy in audio books and while I love listening to them while doing chores or getting out of my home for a walk, I miss cozying up with a book and forgetting everything but the story.
So why not try to visualize the perfect setting for me to find my way back into my preferred way of escaping reality? I’m really grateful for today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt because without That Artsy Reader Girl I wouldn’t have thought about what I need to get back into it.
- my comfy armchair (I’ll post a picture to my instagram when I finally remember to take one in good lightning)
- my blanket
- my reading pillow
The Bookish Parts
- either one of my comfort reads during this time
- or a new book of a series I’m enjoying very much
- a notebook for review notes
- very early morning quietness
- a self made fancy coffee
- no internet connection
Let’s see if investing more time and energy into The Luxuaries category will get me out of this reading slump. I can’t buy any new books at the moment (okay, there is one preorder but that’s because I preorder all books of the Hazard and Somerset [A Union of Swords now] series) so I’ll have to do with my comfort reads. And also being on the lookout for new interesting ARCs.
