Readathons = NOPE – #BookBloggerHop

Readathons = NOPE – #BookBloggerHop

Posted August 11, 2017 in Memes // 17 Comments

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy on Ramblings of a Coffee Addict.  Each week, bloggers answer a different question about their own lives or reading habits. This week’s is going to be quick and simple, because I don’t have a whole lot to say about it.  I prefer to try and make a full post out of these questions when I can, rather than quick one off, but here goes… Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges? I don’t!  Not really.  I do tend to set my Goodreads Challenge every year, but I don’t take it quite seriously. I am trying […]

SO I’M GONNA DO THE THING! This tag is simple – pick a book whose title matches the prompt.  Some of these I had so many ideas on!  Others… not so much.  But this was a blast and thanks, Em, for the tag! Title of the Story of Your Life Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh My initial thought for this […]

Confessions

Posted June 23, 2017 in Checking In // 2 Comments

It feels like months since I’ve finished reading a book.  Even an audiobook.  I have been consumed… drowning in my personal life.  My blogs always fall apart when that happens.  There are reasons why this blog has been around for nearly ten years, and every time I start to acquire a small following, it falls away.  I am rubbish at balance. I found out I was pregnant in February, lost all focus on my recreational responsibilities by early April, and lost the baby after a car crash at the end of May.  I was – I am – heartbroken. I […]
