Changes on my blog

Dear reader,

You must have noticed my absence from my blog and social media and your own blog lately. I have been working overtime a lot, and once I get home, I am really not interested in spending even more time behind the computer. Writing reviews has become a chore I don't want to do at all anymore. I have almost 10.000 unread blog-related emails in my hotmail account, but I am not deleting those, I will read some and try to react on your blog some day.

I am not ready yet to completely quit blogging, so I will post some things, and one sentence "reviews" of what I have read lately and haven't reviewed properly. Of course those reviews are not fit for review sites like Amazon or Goodreads, and I am sorry for the authors whose work I love so much that I can't do their books justice at the moment.

It might change again in the near future, but I can't say anything yet.

I have read some amazing books lately, and I certainly hope to read many more. But my reading time has been severely limited as well. Being tired makes me prefer to do some tv watching (although that has a screen as well), and lately I have been enjoying MasterChef New Zealand (although I still prefer Australia!).

I wish you all great books to read, and if you decide to keep following my blog, thank you for that. I will be back on your blog once my workdays go back to normal hours for sure!

  4. It's a pity, as you make beautiful reviews, but very understandabe. If you're short on time, you got to read the books and not spend too much time on screen.
    Take your time and we'll be here if or when you're back.

  5. oh this saddens me!! I have looked forward to your reviews. I totally understand your reasons though. When it stops being fun and enjoyable, its good to take a break. I do hope you return.

  8. I know how you feel. I have dramatically reduced the time I spend on my blog as well. I don't know how the others do it...do they have no jobs?

  9. I completely understand. Blogging and writing the reviews can take up a lot of time. you don't want reading to become a chore. You need to keep your work/blogging/life balance in a way that works for you. That won't mean that we won't miss you, but I know that I will understand.
