Let’s Have A Chat…

Hello? Is anyone out there? 

Honestly, I’m ashamed of myself for not being active on this blog for a while but my life has been crazy… I mean really, really crazy. I’ve been too exhausted to read, never mind blog, but I’m going to try and get back into the swing of things now. 

So, what’s been happening that’s made me so busy? Well, I tuned 18 which means I can legally go out and drink in the UK (FINALLY), I quit my job, got two new jobs and moved out of my parents’ house, into my own flat. It’s all been a crazy whirlwind and my new jobs involve me working super unsociable hours so I’m constantly tired. I know I’m making excuses, I’m awful, FORGIVE ME XO.

Before all of this though, I started feeling a little overwhelmed with how much I had to do for this blog which made it a little less fun than it should have been. For example, I accepted so many review requests and now I’m behind on all of them which is making me panicky – so I’m going to chill for a bit and put review books on the back burner. I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump and would really like to get myself out of it, so I think I might try reading some old favourites before going back to ARCs etc.

Anyway, enough about me! How have you all been? I feel like I’ve missed so much and really need to get my act together!


I also want to mention here really quick that I totally have not forgotten about the book club I mentioned just over a month ago. It’s still happening! It has a name now and a Goodreads group, so if you would like to join then click right here. If you have no idea what I’m talking about then go check out my Buddy Reading? Book Club? post. There’s some discussion boards in the group already, so have a nosey around and meet some new bookish friends! I’m going to be dedicating a full post to this book club soon but I wanted to talk about it here too, just so those who are interested get a little update.

I hope you’re all doing well, chat soon.cfghj

  1. So glad you’re back! Sometimes you have to step back to let a little of the pressure off, and it sounds as if you have done just that. Just know that you were missed. The book club sounds like fun. Welcome back.

  2. don’t worry Shannon I have been neglecting my blog lately too and i’m trying to get myself back into it! It’s definitely worth taking a break when things start feeling more like a chore than fun, blogging it meant to be fun! Also I find myself in a bit of a reading slump too, so i’m reading trusty Harry Potter (Cursed Child at the moment to be exact!).
    Congratulations on moving out into your own flat and also on the two new jobs, hope everything is going ok for you. Remember that taking a break whenever you need it is fine, we are also here for you if you ever need to talk and just get things off your chest.
    Good luck with your jobs! 🙂
