Hello 2018: I’m back, Where I’ve Been, and Where I Want to Go

Posted January 3, 2018 by @Angelized_1st in Article, Books, Entertainment / 0 Comments

Hey, all! Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past 5 months. That was never my intent. I only meant to take a week or two off while I settled into a new school year. Before I knew it, it was 2018, and I hadn’t posted on the site in ages. If you’ve been checking in, thank you for sticking around. I really, truly appreciate it, and I owe you an explanation. So here it goes…

Part of the reason I disappeared was mentioned above, but the other reason, the main reason, was that I was in a reading slump. Not to say I haven’t read books during this time, but last year was a slower reading year for me. I usually read 3-4 books a week and found myself only getting through 1 1/2. Not only that but as I concentrated on reading through my incomplete book series, I began to feel as if my reviews were sounding the same. Then I began considering only reviewing the favorites in the series, instead of every book. However, I didn’t want to spoil any plotlines, so that left me feeling like my hands were tied. Next thing I knew, blogging was no longer a part of my life.

Going forward I think I may begin including more non-book review posts. Movie/tv reviews, product reviews, and just stuff in general. This way I can keep the blog active, and continue to write about things that interest me. However, this blog will still be (mainly) a book blog. I’m just tweaking it a bit so I can come up with fresh content the next time I fall into a slump. And on that note… I’ve decided to participate in more themed reading challenges with the hope that it’ll freshen up my enthusiasm for reading.

Here’s to a new year!
