This blog is on hiatus. I do not know how long or if it is permanent. Various things have contributed to this. But mainly that I am overwhelmed and short on time. I have been dragging this blog through the mud basically for the past year, not able to devout the time is needs and deserves. It was taking 20+ hours a week just to promote, fix/edit posts errors and coding, write posts/reviews, comment, etc. My reading has been cut in half! My family and friends have suffered as well, spending less time with me. It isn't fair to them. Plus I am enjoying reading less than I used to. Books have sat unread on my shelf for years due to trying (and failing) to keep up with review books and newer titles. And it seemed I was still always behind which just stressed me out.
I will still be around the community, on twitter, and especially goodreads. I will be visiting other blogs more and still be a part of the community. But for right now I just do not have the time, energy or drive to keep up posts here right now. I have more fun just chatting about the books versus formal reviews and having to post oh so often to keep a flow of traffic. I rarely have been visiting other blogs and commenting and I hate that and want to get back into it again.
If things in life settle down or I miss blogging too much I will come back and in the meanwhile lets keep in touch via social media.
To authors and publishers who I have yet to read and review your book, I still do short reviews on Goodreads and reviews will still go up on Amazon, but I cannot promise how quickly as I am adjusting and re-balancing my reading habits to include unfinished series, older titles, books that have been neglected on my shelves for too long etc.
