In January I desperately wanted to be able to continue this book club, but every day and every month I was finding it harder and harder to do so. It was hard with all the things I was putting on my plate mixed with a lot of things going on in my personal life that made committing to this book club in the way I should have was very difficult.

For other reasons, I was finding it difficult to be able to always have a book for the month every month and sometimes I could only purchase one at the end and couldn’t even read my own book of choice.

Another thing was that I didn’t like the way I was organizing everything and I wasn’t finding time to fix it. I really wanted to create a place of discussion for the club on Goodreads and it wasn’t happening and I think it had a lot to do with how everything was set up and I wish to fix it. All this will take time to do and I hope to start it up again in the future.

This book club is so important to me because it centers around having a place to discuss the things that we find hardest to discuss mental health. I want to be able to dedicate my time more effectively towards creating a community that speaks out without judgement in a way that is engaging and enjoyable for others. It will take time, but hopefully I can restart Beyond the Surface again soon!

Thanks for reading! If you have any suggestions on how best to set up the book club let me know in the comments!

-Till next time!

  1. I would like to participate whenever you decide to start it up again. Mental health is important to me, too. Not sure what suggestions to offer, but I look forward to participating in the future.
