I was in a bit of a slump in both reading and blogging and decided to do a little thing that I did back in college. It’s a wonderful behavior modification trick that I love using. Basically, you do something for a set time limit. Once you reach that time limit, you get to do something fun and exciting for an allotted time. Then it’s back to the other thing you were doing.
So, to give an example. In college, I would do homework or study for one hour. After that hour, I did 15 minutes of walking or playing on my phone. Then it was back to one hour of studying. I did this a lot and it actually worked really well for me.
That is what I did for blog posts. I did a few blog posts and decided to reward myself by requesting eARCs on Netgalley. Little did I know, I would get approved for some of them. Hence, being super behind on ARCs again.
In order to keep myself in line, I have decided to make apost about it. I hope that you, friends, will yell at me if you don’t see me reading an ARC. Well actually, please don’t yell. I am fragile.
Anyway, here are the ARCs I hope to read by the end of this month. Then I can get back to mood reading. Dan Brown’s Origin has been staring at me from my shelf. Judging me and crying because I haven’t read it yet.
