Before I go any further I would like to say a masssive sorry for not being around the last couple months! I don't even know where to start! I feel terrible for being gone so long with no explanation but I am back and I am excited.
I feel like I owe somewhat of an explanation... I had some family things going on, that I don't really feel the need to explain but this is kind of what started my blog hiatus. I stopped reading so much and started feeling a lot of pressure to get back into it. Not reading for me is a big deal. This past couple of years I have almost always had a book on the go. But I just didn't feel like it. Very unusual for me. How could I possibly blog when I hadn't even been reading??
Then there was also the uni course that I picked. Proffesional Writing and Publishing which turned out to be a big flop. I didn't enjoy it at all. It just wasn't for me. I couldn't keep up with all of the posts I wanted to be doing, and I ended up procrastinating and that is something I am very good at apparently...
But I am back! And I am looking forward to blogging again. I have been reading some great books lately and I have wanted to share what I thought about them with you all!
Now that I am back there might be some changes to how my blog works. For starters I will no longer be accepting review requests from self published authors. As much as I got excited receiving review requests, I can't keep up with them all, and I don't want to have to put a hold on the books that I want to read.
Secondly, I am reconsidering my 5 star rating system. Giving books a rating out of 5 can be very difficult sometimes. But I know as a blog reader and booktuber watcher I like knowing a rough rating about what the reviewer thought about the book prior to comitting to reading/viewing the review. I will be instead giving "quick thoughts" about the book instead of a rating, letting you know what I thought of the book in roughly 10 words. I will see how this goes and if it isn't working I will go back to rating.
I think that is all for now. Look forward to getting back into the swing of things!!
Hope you will all take me back!
