So yes, my updates have been very infrequent lately. I’ve published I think 3 posts in the past four months. It’s not entirely because I’ve been busy – I haven’t been so busy that I haven’t had any time to blog. I did have time but I didn’t feel like posting anything. I’ve also been in a semi-reading slump so that probably had to do with a lot of it.
I thought about quitting my blog a few times this summer, mostly because I had time but wasn’t posting. I would start a post, stare at the screen and then close it because I just didn’t feel like writing. But every time I finish a book, I want to come on here and write a review because this has been my life for the past five years and I don’t want to stop.
I’m a mood reader and a mood blogger. So I guess my blog will continue to be infrequently updated. I spent too much time and effort on my blog to completely abandon it.
I just wanted to post something so an update in my reading life.
I also have not been blog hopping much so please comment a link to your favorite post you’ve written recently and I will go check it out! Or leave a link to your blog in general and I’d love to go visit.

Great post! check out my page when you get the time! (:
Pft, I can totally relate to mood blogging. I struggle a lot with review writing. Something I’ve been trying recently is following an outline. I always write: * Introduction * Synopsis *Characters *Other Special Details *Closing. Then I just make a bulletted list under each category and write the full review when my brain can handle it. I’m currently ~70 reviews behind. XD I’ve just given up on staying on top of this. There are other things I should do with my time!
Take your time. Do what’s right for you. We’ll be here when you post. 🙂
Oh, and this is the post I’m the most proud of recently: http://deathbytsundoku.com/solving-for-tsundoku-breaking-up-with-netgalley/
That said, I’ve been having HUGE blog technical problems. So. That sucks too. I lost all my posts/pages/comments since April. complicated story. But I’m back! I shall overcome. 😉
