Hello, friends, and happy Monday!
If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you may have noticed me mentioning taking a hiatus. While I debated for a while about whether or not I actually wanted to go through with it (as I was worried about keeping up with my numbers and stats in the meantime), I’m here to tell you that I am in fact going on a hiatus. Just from blogging though. You can still catch me on other social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram.
Last year I took a hiatus around May but realized it wasn’t really much of a hiatus, lol. I hope to do better this time, as I feel like my bookish focus is shifting. Also, despite it being summer, life seems to have gotten busier and instead of spending time with my family, I’m writing blog posts. Not to say I don’t enjoy both, of course, but family triumphs over blogging.
I’d like to be as chill as my dog. (See below.)
Ollie will sit outside in the hot or cold, enjoying himself to no end. A few weeks ago I caught him like the above and thought something had happened. True to himself, he was just sunbathing and definitely ~feeling~ the warm weather. He’s gotten a haircut since then and it’s been getting hotter, yet he still likes to do this. I really ought to take a page from his book, LOL. (But with sunscreen.)
I’ve got a couple of ARCs that have already released that I plan to read and review (I’m currently working on Sherwood), along with a handful that release on September. I imagine I’ll be back before then but at the moment, I don’t want to say when I’ll return (but you’ll definitely know when I do 😛 ).
Besides some reading goals I plan to accomplish during this hiatus, I also want to work on some writing ones. I plan to revamp a query letter for a book I’ve put a halt on actually querying. I also want to finish editing a book in order to pass it on to my CP (critique partner). I realize I’ve been slacking on my writing, and I really want to fix that.
Anyway, enough of me babbling! I’ll see y’all in a couple of weeks!
