Blogging Break

Image result for Taking a Break

Ever since my brother died, I have been trying to find myself again. I'm still on my journey through grief, and I feel like I need to take a step back from some things. I've tried to keep the blog alive, but I think it is time to just leave it alone. 

Thank you to everyone who still comes around now and then. I hope you are still around when/if I decide to come back. 

I will still be actively updating Goodreads, and I'll still post my mini reviews on Instagram. I'm not giving up my reading, just my blogging. 

I have decided to drop several of my reading goals as well. The only one I'm keeping track of is my Goodreads goal. I just want to read things I'm in the mood for and not stress about what to read for some challenge or goal. Reading has become a little bit of a chore, and I want it to be fun again. 

Thank you for your understanding. Hopefully I'll see you later!

My reading took dive in September. I caught the gaming bug, and I've been playing my Nintendo Switch a lot. I'm trying to balance both activities, but sometimes I'm just not in the mood to read. 

Goal Progress:

I am 15 books behind on my Goodreads goal. Ya, I fell behind a little. Hopefully I can catch up.

I only read one book off my nightstand. Dang.

I read one Newbery book! Yay me! (7/20)

I re-read one book. (11/20)

I did make a dent in the Pioneer Book Reading Challenge. I only have 12 more books to go! (32/44)
