These Are Troubling Times In the Kingdom…


I’m done book blogging.

I just don’t have the time or energy to keep up. I thought of a million ways to “fix” things. I decided to stop requesting ARCs. I made schedules so I could get caught up on things. I even planned out new designs and ways to make blogging exciting again. Truth is, none of it has helped. I’m still incredibly behind on reading and even farther behind on reviews and everyday I’m growing more and more fed up with the fake/rude attitudes and drama that exist in this “community”. So…you know…I’m done.

Maybe in the future I’ll get bored enough to decide I can manage a return but, for now, don’t expect to see too much around here. Hosting @ Twilight Sleep will continue on and I’ll float around twitter once in a while, but other than that I am dropping any and all commitments to book blogging.

See ya around.

Or not.

I don’t know.

Who knows?

We’ll see.

Nevermind, just kidding.

    Nothing lasts forever, good or bad! It’s your decision, and if you’re comfortable with it, then it’s the right thing for you! *hands glazed donuts* *waves*

    Nooooooo! Shannon! Nooooooo!

    This makes me really sad. I hate that all the drama has impacted you so much. But it does sound like you’re really busy, and when there’s not enough time to do all the stuff a blog requires, it can definitely start to feel like a chore. I hope, at least, that this will give you the freedom to just enjoy reading again, without any pressure.

    I’m going to miss you. :(

    And when I just discovered your blog! Pity. But I do hope that you’ll be able to recover your love for blogging, and start enjoying blogging again.

    *sings* Don’t you forget about us!
