So I’ve decided to take a break from reviewing. I’ve been reviewing this genre for 4 years (wow) and I still love it. While my taste in books has definitely changed and evolved with time, becoming more discerning, I still think the best books in this genre stack up against the best books in any genre. I won’t stop reading or reviewing what I love but I am taking a short break. It could be a long one but I hope not.
While the holidays should be a time for cheer and wonderful reflection, unfortunately this month has decided to devastate my family. Not even once either, but on multiple fronts. My mom and I actually listed everything that’s been going on this month and it’s really staggering that so many horrific things could happen to one family. If I believed in karma then I’d wonder but there is no way karma could have anything to do with the sad events this month. When I think about it I just want to cry and never get up from bed but of course that helps no one. So I do get up and go through the day but just coping takes all my energy with nothing left over for reviewing or much interaction. I am still reading here and there, mostly to zone out though so not exactly critically reading.
I think I’ve reviewed everything waiting in my queue or I’ve tried. If I missed something just let me know and I’ll put it at the top of my list when I can think about reviewing again. I apologize for not commenting on blogs lately – it’s not that I don’t read them but I do it in fits and starts and never seem to have the time/energy to comment. I’m sorry. I should do a better job and please know that I value the effort people put into posting and I’m at least reading.
I think that’s it for now but I hope everyone is having a better holiday filled with healthy/prosperous family and friends.
