Spontaneous. Spontaneous. Spontaaaaaaaaneous.
According to Goodreads, I’ve read a grand total of 18 books in a span of five months this year. Around this time last year, I read like roughly 30-40+ books already. What happened? I have three theories.
Theory #1: Game of thrones Bingeing
So I finally got around to watching this awful show called Game of Thrones last month, and I was actually planning on reading the books first – as do all obedient bookworms do – but I got bored. Watching the show however, was not boring.
Spoilers be damned, I’m having a helluva good time with this series. I just started Season 5 and
thank God I’ve heard not that many spoilers for Season 6 there are so many spoilers for Season 6 everywhere I cry.
Anyway, a huge chunk of my day is either occupied with watching the show and/or watching funny moments of the cast online. Oh, don’t judge.
THEORY #2: Amateur Artist Auteur
So I have a summer job. I basically hired myself to be a graphics artist.
At night – when I’m supposed to be reading – I tinker about with Photoshop trying to create the next big art out there…not really. I’m just having fun combining fonts especially serifs and scripts. I’m also mastering the art of gif-making which is so frustrating. (see art above)
I usually work at around 10PM and get off at 12MN. Then I read for about an hour.
THEORY #3: The Art of Not Reading
I sort of mentioned this in my Hello, It’s Me post but I think I never really got over my nonexistent reading slump.
It started June of last year where I became so occupied with school that I unintentionally ignored leisure reading. And I miss that so much. Do you ever get that feeling sometimes where you want to read but you don’t know how to read?
It’s a struggle for me and I try to hype myself up by looking for reading inspiration. Just now I actually saw the ARC for Rosamund Hodge’s next novel up for request and I just remembered all the good YA stuffs.
I also want to help people out there experiencing reading slump. Find the doctor right here. Sorry not sorry for plugging.
I hope this has been a worthwhile read. I’ll be back soon with…I don’t know probably something bookish. Until the next spontaneous.
