Weekend Slumps – Monday Motivation

The weekends are a time when most people settle in and read more than they did during the work week; this is the opposite for me. When the weekend comes, my audiobooks shut off and my books close. Whenever I find a minute to read I always end up stopping a few pages in.

I am lucky to get through 10-20 pages… sometimes I’ll squeeze in an audiobook chapter while doing the dishes. I just can’t seem to find the motivation when my kids are running around and my husband is home. We rarely get to spend time as a family; when we do, we go go go until bedtime and then I pass out!

Now it’s Monday and I just couldn’t get myself to listen to The Night Circus. I read this book last year, it being my favorite standalone of 2018 and I cannot follow along! I’m so lost! I don’t know if it’s just where I’m at mentally or if the nature or the book requires more concentration.

I opted to listen to something light and easy, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, narrated by Newt Scamander/Eddie Redmayne. It’s such a fun and quick listen. At just under 2 hours, it definitely resets my mind. I think I’ll try and finish TNC tonight via hardcopy and start fresh with something new tomorrow.

I hope everyone’s having a lovely day!

  1. So glad you’re back on your blog!!! I’m the same way. The weekends that I have off, I rarely read because I want to spend time with my husband and also squeeze as much stuff in as I can.
