I started this blog in a rush of hyperfocus in January 2021, on the basis of a thought process that went something like this… “I am sick of wasting time on TV series that go on and on and social media that sucks me in to pointlessness and arguments. I am going to reduce those elements in my life, and re-introduce the things that always used to make me happy and keep me sane namely, reading, writing, listening to music, and discussing them with friends.”
I have found as I got older that my friends and I dispersed to all corners of the country, and I don’t have time to go out and make new ones. So this blog is a way of trying to get that connection back. I will invite those people I already know, who I discuss books with in real life, but I am also hoping to make new friends and to open myself up to new things to try. So please do stop by, feel free to agree or disagree with my reviews, and please do recommend anything you think I’ll enjoy.
Neurodiversity is a theme that will crop up regularly. Having recently been diagnosed with ADHD (and referred for assessment for OCD) , I finally have a framework, and some sort of explanation, for the craziness of my mind, for my innate weirdness, and for that feeling I have always had of being not quite like everyone else, of bustling through life without ever feeling I was really being me.
Thank you for reading this far. I hope you enjoy my posts. Take care and happy reading!
