Well that title sounds … I swear there isn’t anything wrong, I have nothing against anyone, and I still love to read.

I started becoming an avid reader, and a booktuber, back in 2015. I’ve taken breaks here and there. I’m finally realizing i’m done with making bookish content. No more things like hauls or tbrs/pops or wrap ups etc. Not because I have anything against them, I don’t. That’s not what this is. This is me having no more desire to make said content. That kind of stuff makes me feel obligated, and I don’t want that. I have other shit going on in my life, other shit I want to do, hell books i’d rather be reading.

If I decide I want to say, gush about a particular book or post about some random bookish topic or something like that, sure, maybe i’ll do that. If I really want to. Random shit like that I might do because then I shouldn’t feel any sense of obligation about it, in terms of having to keep making more of it.

I do think this will actually make me more excited to blog but at the same time i’m not promising anything. Why would it make me excited? Because then I can just post when/whatever I want to! No feeling like I have to do shit or like I owe anyone anything when I know I don’t.

If you want to know what books i’m reading i’ll still be on Goodreads and Storygraph.

I know there are so many other things i’d rather blog about. And this means i’ll have the energy sometimes to do that. Being chronically ill and in pain I don’t have a lot of energy. I want to put the energy I do have into stuff I want to do and … I no longer care to do that bookish content.

So here’s to the stuff I’ll be blogging about instead! What will it be? Who the fuck knows. Could be stuff related to me being trans and transitioning. Could be stuff related to disability. Could be related to other hobbies: Movies, TV, Video Games, Writing, Art, Puzzles… Could be other random topics as well. Feel free to make suggestions if you want. I don’t promise anything but who knows, I could really love a suggestion and decide to do it.

If you decide to stick with me, I appreciate it a lot. I understand if you do not though. Thank you for reading this.


Edited to add: I am really glad for what it’s given me, being a part of the bookish community and making content like that, it’s just not what I want to do anymore. Technically i’m still part of the bookish community because i’ll still read, log what I read, and occasionally watch and read book related content (booktube, tiktok, book blogs…).
