Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

This meme was created for bloggers to spotlight posts they published in the week, as well as to talk about what they plan to write in the week that’s coming.

Sunday post is also great opportunity to showcase books we got in the week behind us.

Hi Guys,

This is my first Sunday Post in years. You might notice, but my blogging wasn’t the best for the last three years. There are always some distractions in my personal life ever since I became a mother and it wears me off. I feel like the person I was before was taken from me and I can’t bring her back no matter how much I miss her.
That theme is also hard to talk about because people often don’t have the tolerance and I should be happy to be a mother. Maybe one day I will talk more about it.
For now, I decided to at least give myself a pleasure to visit my previous life and blog because I used to love it so much. My blog to me used to mean more then a day job or any other hobbies.

So here I am, writing my Sunday Post in hope I will keep up with all of your new words and that somehow life won’t get in a way this time.
In October I decided to host Blogtober on my blog and I am still hopeful I will keep up with all of my blogging plans.

Last week on Book Dust Magic:

Upcoming reviews:

One Thousand Stars and You Isabelle Broom book cover

I am reading One Thousend Stars and You by Isabelle Broom. I started it last month and my plan is to finish it before I start the spooky season. I am 25% in and so far it’s good.

That is it!
Let me know what’s been going on with you, what you’ve been reading or watching this week and feel free to leave your links so I can visit you.
Have a lovely Sunday!

  1. I’ve really struggled with keeping my blog active since starting it, so I do understand that. I am sorry that it’s been especially difficult ever since becoming a mother, however. While it is always touted as one of the biggest joys in a person’s life, I can completely see that it takes over your life in a way that makes it feel like you’ve lost much of yourself as well. I hope the blog can be a way of kind of re-connecting with that and please don’t feel bad for feeling this way! While it’s not discussed often, I do think it is a very normal feeling to have! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on ‘The Daughter of Doctor Moreau’ since I really enjoyed it!
    I hope you have a good start to the week 🙂

  2. I don’t mind the changes I go through as the years pass, and see it as a new opportunity to learn and experience new things. Hope you have a good week with books and what you love to do.

  3. Welcome back! I feel the same way about blogging so I can relate a little to what you’re saying. I don’t think you should feel ashamed of that at all. I think our blogs are part of who we are, for some of us, since we are able to talk about what we love with like minded people. anywayyy…have a nice week! 🙂

  4. Welcome back! Finding balance is tough, happy to see that you’ve given yourself some time to do a hobby you enjoy.

    Take care and have a great week!

  5. Being a mother definitely changes you! And it’s reasonable (and 100% understandable) to feel sad about losing part of yourself… I hate it when people make women feel guilty about it under the guise of “you should be grateful.” The simple fact is, you can be grateful to be a mother, to have a healthy happy child, and to love being a parent whilst still feeling sad about everything you gave up/lost to become it and struggling with how hard it can be sometimes…

    FWIW, I never really got the “me” I was before my son back but I eventually grew into a new version of me that I like even better… And being a mother is only one piece of who that person is. It takes time to rebuild who you are but you’ll get there. ❤️
