Taking a Break

I’ve often though over the last few years when the pressures of life and daily going ons meant I wasn’t writing as many reviews. I’d watch my scheduled posts dwindle and realise I could take a break, no one would blame me, but then I’d write one or two, get back into the swing of things again and before I knew it I has another few weeks ready to go.

This time I have found that I can have as many half-finished reviews open, have as many recently read books ready to go and no motivation to write anything. I’ve decided to take September off, because even if I do get some posts ready I don’t want to become trapped in a cycle of posting for a couple weeks then a couple of weeks of nothing. It’s happened this month and I didn’t like it and yet I found I couldn’t do anything about it even as I knew those no post days were approaching.

Second lockdown could be to blame for this, a lot of things could be to blame for this, but instead of focusing on why I’m choosing to focus on solutions instead. My solution is to take September away from the blog, despite my intense wish to continue I know I can’t actually do it because wishing isn’t getting anything done.

I will use this time to build up my posts again, coming back strong in October and ready to share some great books with you all. I’m also coming back from a mini reading slump too so there will be a lot of books to talk about on my return.

Don’t forget there’s still more than eight years of reviews to flick through if you’re ever in need of a good recommendation.

I’ll see you all in October!

News: Farewell But Not Goodbye

ImageSo tomorrow is the big scary day, the holiday. I am sharing the terror and the anxiety with the eagerness and excitement, all of which switch dominance as the night progresses. But aside from that we have announcements. Since I will be travelling and having a right good time I fear there will be a break in the postings.

Yes, I hear you, there have been some breaks already, but holiday planning is time consuming, and life is time consuming and things have been time consuming and I apologise. But rest assured things will pick up upon my return.

What I am going to try and achieve (she says with so many intentions of trying to do), is that while I am gone I will probably only be able to get birthday posts up, because there are some great authors birthdays, but I can’t promise anything, but I do wanna try. I am taking books with me for the long flight so who knows, I may get a nice new review up, that’s something to look forward to, nice quiet reading time at last.

In my absence don’t forget that my giveaway is still running, the close date isn’t for another three weeks, so you can still get your entry in. There are two entry options if one doesn’t work.

Other than that I can’t really offer much else except behave yourselves while I am gone, read something spectacular, and I will see you in a more permanent and less sporadic manner in three weeks.

UK here I come! *squeal*
