Where Have I Been?

Maybe you haven't noticed, but I have been gone. My last post was a month ago. I did a disappearing act one day...POOF!

Traditionally, March is always my busiest month of the year. I don't know why it works out that way but it does. This year, March was even busier than usual

and I became extremely overwhelmed. Aside from my fulltime job and this blog, I also have my life blog which I keep up for my brother in California and a few sisters-in-law that read it, and a Boy Scout website that includes a blog as well as their advancements and ranks. There was zero time to give my book blog I didn't.

This blog is only a few months old and I had been trying to keep up with other bloggers out there who are career bloggers posting every day or several times a day. I admire you, I don't know how you keep up! I have decided that I can not do that and keep my sanity. I enjoy blogging about the books I have read, sharing my opinions with others and reading all of yours so I will not give it up- I will just be a little more low key posting only once or twice a week rather than daily.

I have a few reviews to catch up on, for even though I was really busy I only quit blogging not reading! These are a few I have read that I will start reviewing soon:

The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman

Little Bee by Chris Cleeve

The Alchemist by Paolo Coehlo

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti

The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf

A.D. 62: Pompeii by Rebecca East


  1. Oh I was going to ask where you had been on your last post but seen I was the last two comments and did not want to appear stockerish..... LOL

    Although - I will see you in a week! :D

    Welcome back! I am so anxious to read your review of Hunger Games and Catching Fire.

  2. Very sane of you to do the amount that works for you! Your life sounds quite over-scheduled blog-wise :-)

  3. It's so easy to get sucked into the idea that if you don't post, people will forget you. But, hey, you're on my google reader, so when you're ready to post, I'll know!

  4. I think it's important to know what your limits are (in blogging and life), and then try not to compare yourself to what other people are doing. Easier said than done, I know, but I've found that when I set blogging limits for myself it helps me know that I can take a break. Good luck with your more low-key posting schedule :)
