Hi my readers,
It has been a while since I’ve done an update.
First: my original computer is down. *Inner crying*
Some things that were on there aren’t on my laptop. Oh the horror. I’ve had to adapt to that. I also miss my video games terribly. I have to get that fixed, but in the mean time I’ve found more time for reading. Go figure. Ha.
Much is changing in my world which means I’ve had to change my blog a bit to adapt to my social life picking up. Never thought, as a borderline hermit, that I’d say that, haha.
Many of you will notice a change in how my week days are set up. This will not affect my reviews, my hosting book tours, nor my Spotlight Interviews. It just changes the day of the week they will be done.
To my dearest authors, I want to thank you all for your continued patience. This blog is still new by many standards, which means I’m still learning and still creating rules for myself to follow while doing reviews. I am very grateful for that patience, it means a lot. I know you’re awaiting your reviews, and I’m working as steadily as I can on them.
Other than that, keep on reading!
I’ve fallen behind a bit. I just moved two hours away from my old place to my new place, closer to family and friends. Now comes the unpacking and finding all my stuff that has been missing for weeks, haha.
In falling behind, I’ve noticed I was nominated for a lot of Liebster awards and tagged in the Blogger Recognition tag and the Sunshine Blogger Award. I’m sorry to those who tagged me, I did notice. I just couldn’t get to them yet!
Thank you to Tripping the Page Fantastic, Sleepless Book Junkies, The Catcher in the Book and A Pretty Wonderful Book for nominating me for a Liebster award. I was already nominated this year so I can’t play again but it means a lot to me to be nominated again. It is much appreciated!
I promise to A Thousand Lives, The Mystery Corner, The Misstery and Shameeka’s Fictional World that I will get their tags done and up eventually.
Alright, so the other thing is, I’m still steadily working on my to be read pile. I accepted review requests without looking at what I still had to review. Rookie mistake.
I am sorry to authors who are requesting or are waiting to request. I am working on it steadily, but life does eat up some of my reading time. So I promise to the authors still waiting for reviews and those who wish to review, I am working hard at this. I appreciate your patience.
Other than that, onward with my books and reviews!
This is kind of a rumination slash update. This week, I had to put a notice of not accepting any more review requests.
I wanted to explain a little of what is going on in my life and why I had to put a notice up.
First: I have 100 books to read and review. I checked the other day and was like whoa dude, slow down! Not to mention the 20 requests still waiting for an answer in my inbox.
Soooo many books, not enough day light!
Second: I’m in the midst of trying to move home. I currently live two hours from my family and finding an apartment is tough, to say the least. Between people being discriminatory or changing their price of their apartments constantly, it’s been tough. I just got home from visiting my mom for three weeks trying to view apartments.
Third but not the least: my uncle is really ill. I’m trying to move home because of that, and because I am so not a big city girl. Gimme a small city, any day of the week.
My mom will drive herself insane trying to do everything for my uncle and my uncle will be stubborn, and they’ll butt heads. I know I’ll be needed to take some of the weight off my mom. And I miss my bestie, terribly!
I am sorry for those who are still awaiting book reviews. Or that I haven’t replied to yet. I do see you, and you’re in my mind. I’ll get to your books whenever I can.
Happy Mother’s Day Readers
I hope all my readers who are Mama’s, Mama’s to be, Dad’s who are the Mama and Grandparents who are Mama as well and Fur-Mama’s are having a wonderful day. ❤
Have a great Sunday! ❤
