I'm overwhelmed...

I used to spend all of my non-working waking hours reading or blogging. I spent too much time on something that I don't get paid for. I love reading and I do love writing my thoughts on books, but lately I feel like the few reviews I've written are lacking in quality. I feel as though I signed up for too many tours before I realized I was changing. I still want to read and post reviews, but perhaps at a much slower pace then I used to do. If you've noticed the posts are less frequent lately. Even some of my tours dates have had to change due to my not having read the book yet.... this makes me sad, especially when it's a book I was looking forward too. I just haven't had the feeling of picking up a book lately. 

I am struggling with a few now that I know that given the right mood I would just adore. So I'm stepping back a little - reading at my leisure and fulfilling the tours I've already committed to. But for a little while I might not be around much.

So much has been happening with the rest of my life, that something has to give and I'm sad to say it's the blog. It will still be here... just at a slower pace.

See you on the flip side.

    1. Thanks Kaley. I'm just getting into a book now and finally writing a few posts that I am behind on. Hopefully just having written down my thoughts the other day will help. And I'm thinking about changing up the blog a bit. I'm brainstorming right now on some changes. :)

  2. I'm right with ya! I'm on a blogging hiatus right now, and when I come back in mid-September I'll be cutting back to posting 1-2 times a week. Real life is busy right now and that has to take priority. Blogging is a hobby and like you said-we're not getting paid to do it :p

    Blog when you can and don't worry about when you can't!

    1. Glad to know I'm not alone. I think that is a good amount for a busy life. I'm thinking of the same type of thing or changing my blog a bit so it's not just books, but my life AND books. It is a great hobby, but I felt like I was spending a lot of time on it and not other things like home renos and gardening that is much needed. I felt like I'd let the weeds grow in the garden just so I can get through my next review book. Also, I think I want to just read more of the books I already own that have gone unread... I mean I bought them for a reason, so I should probably read them right? ;)

      See you in September!

  3. I share your feelings, sometimes it's important to take a look at the way you run your blog. I also did some changes and now I love reading once again.

    1. Julchen - that makes me very hopeful. I'm still taking a little bit more time to figure some things out, but hoping to be back a little more than I have been. :)
