Sunday Musings #44: A restful week with a lot of ME time

I kinda took a break, unplanned of course, last week as I didn’t feel inspired to blog. I know taking such an unplanned break is a strict no no for most of us bloggers, but I have made peace with it. I just couldn’t get myself to switch on my laptop at all.

But it is a good thing because I found the mojo back and I am talking to you only because I want to, not because my schedule says so. I used this week to laze around the house particularly doing nothing, not talking to friends or family and got some reading done. I can say it was quite the quality ME time I was craving for. 

What I read this week

And yes, but now I am back to be the chatter box that I usually am.
After not reading for about the first two weeks in April, I had a great reading week finally. I read three books in a week and I liked them all. Isn’t that great?

  • The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath 
  • Truth or Beard by Penny Reid 
  • The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie

What I watched this week

Boys over Flowers!

Meteor Garden! 

Tell me all you Kdrama freaks how come none of you recommended me about this series. I am so completely obsessed that I can’t even talk about it. I LOVED THEM BOTH. I will speak about them more once I have calmed the heck down.

I finally watched Shazam last week and I loved it. But again I can’t wait for the Avengers Endgame this week. 

Around the blogosphere

I know I have not visited many blogs recently but hey, I will make it up alright? I will be around dropping in with a comment very soon. But here are some of my picks from the last week for now.

I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme

  1. I wrote a comment but the it was eaten! I wanted to say that taking alone time and you time if you think you need it is not a no no at all, especially if it is to take care of your mental health <3 I want to read the Bell Jar eventually and I love Agatha Christie so I am glad you got to enjoy a mystery of hers!

  2. Ahh, did not expect to see my post on your list omg. Thank you!

    I’m glad your unplanned break went well for you! I haven’t blogged in a few days, or done much of anything to do with reading (my daughter and I have been down with colds) but I have work to do, so here’s hoping my blogging mojo comes back soon!

  3. Yeah for re-charging and me-time. It’s always good to take a time out. I have been working my way though the Winston Brothers book. I had book 1 ages ago, and then I saw books 2 – 4 on Hoopla in audio, so I listened to those. I love Reid. Her books are funny.

  4. I didn’t do hardly any commenting last week because life got in the way. I think it’s great you took a break and are enjoying your reading now. I love Penny Reid and Agatha Christie. I’ve read almost everything they’ve written. Very different genres but both great. Have a lovely week!

  5. I used to feel guilty when I took unplanned breaks but now I don’t anymore. If I need it I need it. I consider this as a better strategy to get back with drive again and still blog on the long term!
