"i don't have a plan, i'm afraid, but then, no one really does, no matter what they say.” - little fires everywhere, by celeste ng.
what's a book you really want to read, has glorious reviews, your friends keep praising, makes sweet eyes at you from its spot on the shelves, but yet you haven't picked up and don't know when you'll be able to? hint: mine is little fires everywhere.
here's the thing, and at risk of repeating myself: i'm writing my thesis. i spend hours on end in front of my computer screen either trying to write or trying to find the literature that supports what i'm trying to write, or just arguing with word or with whatever journal doesn't want to grant me access to an article that sounds like it'll make everything i'm writing make sense. it can be frustrating and quite stressful. so, i've come to realize that little fires everywhere may not be the right fit for me right now. i don't know why, i don't even know what it is about, but my gut tells me 'hmmmmmaybe just wait a bit'. i want to dedicate my time and mind to a book i'm pretty sure i'll love, so i'm going to listen to my gut and resist the urge of picking it up. for now.
on that note, i finished longbourn last night (spoiler alert: ugh) and now i'm wondering which book should i pick up next, all things considered. i'm thinking scarlet. or maybe artemis? any ideas or suggestions? what type of books do you gravitate towards when your brain is a mush?
