“Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.Luna Lovegood
Hello strangers. Long time no post. Unfortunately things got a big crazy in my regular life post returning to work and while I have been on Instagram I definitely have not been posting on the blog. It is not some crazy story as to why I have been gone. I didn’t get promoted, I didn’t get covid, and I didn’t just forget about you guys.
The honest truth is that I just got busy. The last post I made was in July when I read A Blade So Black and did a review on it. That weekend that I read that was the last proper weekend off I have had in months, which makes since. I work in retail and the Holidays are coming up.
I had all these hopes of keeping up the blog when I went back to work and that all cam crashing down on me because I put entirely too much on my plate. So really all I want to talk about in this post is what you can expect going forward.
Going forward I am still going to blog, but I am not going to put a number on how many times I will post a week or what day I will post. My hope is that I can post on Wednesday’s most weeks, but if I have to skip a week I will. I do this blog for fun, just like my instagram.
If you want to see more frequent content you can follow me on instagram (@readingbymyself). I try to post more often on there but to be honest with you I sometimes get behind on that as well. I do usually post stories though so if you just want a behind the scenes look at what is going on with me that is where you can find it.
I also will still be doing the monthly Reading With Friends group read. We are taking October off so I could do some refresh and reset and get some things worked out and made for November, but I am in a good spot and I am really excited about the books that I came up with to vote between. I will give you guys a little sneak peak and tell you that the theme for November is authors of color. I have 8 books lined up to pick from that range from true stories to fiction that I think will all be good regardless of which one is picked.
Finally I just want to say thank you for those of you that have still stuck around my instagram and my blog. It means a lot to me. I don’t know going forward if the majority of the posts will be book reviews or if they will just be bookish themed. So bear with me while I figure that all out.
Oh, and update on reviews I have read entirely too many books to do a full catchup on what I have read since my last post, but I am planning to re-read A Dream So Dark because I read it in one day and I really love the series and I want to be able to soak it all in. So you will at least get a review for the book after a Blade So Black. One of my associates has borrowed it so once I get it back from her is when I will get started with the re-read. Also for those of you that don’t already know, I have now re-read/re-listened to House of Earth and Blood 5 times.
