Indefinite hiatus

I have been blogging here at Literary Weaponry for six years now. It’s been a good six years, with ups and downs, and has been a satisfying creative outlet for me. I’ve enjoyed sharing my love of books and stories with all of you and have appreciated every like and comment and interaction I have received.

That being said, blogging does not offer the same fulfillment it once did. It no longer feels like an outlet for a passion. It has begun feeling like a job I need to keep up with and a social space I need to stay relevant in. That isn’t why I started this. I wanted to share my passion for reading. That passion, too, has fizzled.

As of right now, I have previously scheduled posts up until May 25th but I don’t know what is going to happen after that.

I do want to thank you all for your support and your shared love of reading. But, for right now, it is time for me to step away for a while. I need to re-evaluate my life.

Again, thank you all, and happy reading. 🖤

Last 3 Books | Added to my TBR

As a person who loves to talk about books, I spend I great deal of time discussing what I’m reading in the moment, what I just finished, or what I plan on picking up next. Rarely do I just have a chat about recent books that simply caught my eye. 

So, that’s what we are going to do here. Let’s have a chat about the last couple books that I added to my general (not owned) TBR because they caught my attention for one reason or another. Pretty simple, right?

Favorites So Far In 2022

We are all very much aware that, so far, 2022 has been an absolute shit show. “New year new me” has turned into the war in Ukraine, new strains of COVID, inflation, and companies still not respecting their employees. My Big Sad and existential dread lead me trying to find some bright spots for far this year.

And what is brighter than escapism? In this case, it took the form of my favorite books so far this year which I thought I’d share with you!

The TBR Graveyard | Part 1

So many books, so little time!

We’ve all done it. An upcoming release catches our attention with all the buzz hopping around about it and we add it to our TBR list. There, it languishes for months, sometimes even years, until you’ve all but forgotten about it. It finally gets relocated to your TBR graveyard, never to be heard from again.

Maybe that is a little dramatic but you get my point. These are some of the books that I have nudged into that TBR graveyard recently.

Books I Read Because of Recommendations

There are more books in the world than a person could ever read in their lifetime. There are more books even just in one genre than a person could ever conceivably read. Because of this, sadly, we all have to choose what we are going to read and sometimes that means setting some books aside or overlooking them entirely.

However, sometimes a book is so highly recommended, or someone you share bookish tastes with loves a book so much, that a title you would normally not have glanced twice at catches your interest.
