Returning from my mini-hiatus

You may have noticed that things have been pretty quiet around here for the last couple of weeks... I lost a little bit of my blogging momentum lately, partly from things getting busy in real life and partly from needing to strike up a better balance between reading/blogging and everything else. When I first started blogging, I was reading a book a week, but over the last few months I've picked up the pace, reading 2 or 3 books a week, and while I've really enjoyed becoming exposed to some great books through blogging, I also became a little fatigued by reading so much (I didn't even think that was possible!), and as a result I've been reading the same book for the last two weeks (Searching for Pemberley by Mary Lydon Simonsen), which isn't a reflection on the book itself so much as my own need to slow down a little.

Anyway, I think I've finally gotten through my hump and am planning to resume pick up my blogging schedule this week :) This is just a quick note to explain the mini-disappearance, and to let you all know that I'm looking forward to catching up on reading blogs this week!

  1. Much as I love blogging and getting to read everyone else's, it does add some stress to life. It takes up a lot of time, which cuts down on your reading time but makes you feel like you need to read more to have books to review. Argh--a vicious cycle that definitely requires a break periodically!

  2. Dana, I had noticed that you were absent, but you know, life happens and we all have to take a break. Good to hear from you!

  3. I understand where you are coming from because I was going through the same thing myself. Hopefully I can get back up again. :) Happy reading!

  9. I can totally relate. I've noticed many similar posts lately - myself included. Spring just seems to be a busy time of year for everyone.

  10. Sometimes you just need a break. I only posted twice last week because my daughter's school play is taking up so much time. It helps to step away every now and again. Glad to see you back, though.
