Book Reviews

Goodbye

Good morning fellow bloggers and readers,

I am just writing to let you know that I will no longer be posting. I’m not for sure how long, maybe forever. As many of you know, I haven’t had FaceBook or SnapChat in over five years. Any of the other platforms aside from LinkedIn and Goodreads, (and this blog), I have never had (besides for when someone made a Instagram account of me, which was hell to delete!).

Unfortunately, I have always viewed social media as an unnecessary evil. I’m not being condescending for anyone else who does have it; it just isn’t for me.

As for the blog, I appreciate all of the support I have received from everyone over the years and would love to keep in contact with those of you who have interest! As time went by, I found myself almost “forcing” myself to write posts or reviews, and not enjoying it as much. What I believe is the “killer” of my blog for myself is that I wasn’t always reading what wanted to read. Reading wasn’t as fun anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I read a lot of great books, but there are so many hanging out in my TBR that I still need to read/want to read more. And sometimes, quite frankly, I don’t want to write a review (insert shruggy shoulders emoji).

I’ve always told myself I need to live in the moment more, stop living by the deadlines I give myself, and actually enjoy the moment. So, that is what I intend to do. And for me, that is time away to focus on things I want to do, my empire (my two side businesses), and enjoying the beautiful weather outside.

I wish you all of the best on this journey and DO NOT hesitate to reach out if you need anything (support, a laugh, or just a friend)!

  1. You always have to take care of you first and foremost. I have taken hiatuses before. And I have enjoyed reading more backlist books lately. I will miss you and maybe one day you will be back even once a week or something. I completely understand about facebook. I dropped off that and never looked back. I’m on my site and twitter and that is ENOUGH lol. I don’t do anything else. Don’t want to. Won’t. And I use them as I see fit without apology unless I find out I’ve legitimately hurt someone. You take care of yourself, love. I hope you find what you need and happiness. I will miss you!

  2. Oh no! I just found you! I was searching for HMR recipes and came across your blog with the banana oatmeal muffins. I can’t wait to try these! But in scrolling through I realize that your taste in books is exactly what I love! I am going to enjoy reading through all your wonderful book reviews. Can’t wait to discover the books that I have missed!! Best wishes, and I wouldn’t be sad if you decided sometimes to post more good books and recipes. Stay safe!
