Hi! I have been so busy lately and I just have not had the time to devote to my blog that I would like. I would love to do this all the time, but realistically I work a full time job. I am a wife and a mother. And…I have a TBR pile that could crush me any moment😂 I have two full bookshelves and a kindle full of unread books. Yet everyday I am scouring Amazon, the library ebook app and all of the other sites I use to buy books and we won’t talk about all the ARCs I requested and can’t work my way through🙈
So I have been questioning myself as to what I want to do with this blog. What do I want to accomplish? I have looked at some of your blogs and I am ashamed of my reviews. Some of the blogs are lengthy and so well written they should appear in a magazine or on the books themselves and I’m over here like “yeah it was good”. I see some of you post almost everyday. I am amazed at all the bookstagram photos(and to be honest, a little terrified at having to find so many ways to photograph a book). The creativity you guys put out and the effort I see is astounding.
But for me…
I keep coming back to this…
I love to read. It makes me happy. I love to find a good book and escape to a different place, explore a culture I am unfamiliar with, find life friends, explore love. I love the feel of a book in my hands and the comfort it gives me. I started this blog as a place to just talk about what I have read and learn about new books from others and boy, have I done that😍 I have met so many wonderful, kind and helpful people. I have fangirled with some of the best and met friends I just know would be my best friends if we could ever met. People who make me smile throughout the day. I have learned about new books and purchased some just because of what you guys thought.
THIS is what I want from my blog. The stats are excellent and the numbers keep me in awe, but I will never be the blogger who can do a super long review. I can never be the blogger who posts everyday and has the perfect, eloquent post. I’m just a girl who loves books and wants to talk about them. And that’s ok.
I admire so many of you and am so proud of what you are accomplishing. And to those of you, who actually take the time to like, comment, tag or share any of my work, I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart!!😍
