Stacking the Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Reading Reality

what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul

It’s been ages since I last posted an STS post and I’ll freely admit that I have been dragging my heels a bit because I’ve accumulated a load of books in that time so I knew it was going to a bit of a monster-sized post! 😉

As to what I’ve been getting up to lately, well I’ve been neglecting my blog for starters. I was determined at the start of the new year that I was going to try and blog more consistently but that ended up not happening (the opposite occurred actually). I think I might have been putting a little too much pressure on myself.

My mental health also took a bit of a downward turn which really hasn’t helped. Factor in a return to office working (been working from home the last two years) and my time has been much more limited.

Still, there is still time to turn this all around and I’m going to try and be a bit easier on myself because it doesn’t ever do much good to set unrealistic expectations. 🙂
