Blog & Life Updates - Semi Hiatus

So, I don't know if anyone has noticed but my posts have been going down in number. My life has changed dramatically over the past 5 months. Good things and very bad things. Starting a new job, my depression and anxiety have taken over my life. My daughter brings home a cold at least once a month. Needless to say, I've been so busy or just not in the state of mind to blog. I'm no longer excited for new YA books as what is being published lately just doesn't sound good to me. 

Then when I do read a book, I don't feel like writing a review. Even if I love the book, I'm just too lazy to bother. So I've decided to pull back. It's not fair to you guys to read something that my heart isn't in and I don't want to waste either of our time. 

So posts will be coming less and less but 50/50 Friday will not stop. A new 50/50 Friday will be up as usually. I'm going to try to still do Music Monday as I'm always listening to music and have songs to share. I make no promises on any other kind of posts. They will just pop up when I feel like doing one. 

I hope that you guys understand and bear with me for a while. Just until I get my life together and feel like blogging full time again. I love you all and thanks for sticking with me! 

Happy reading and have a great day! 


  1. You do what you need to do until your life settles down, Carrie! We all understand it gets crazy. Not a bad idea to save your energy for those things. Good luck at your new job. Try to stay sane! :p

    I wish you and your family all the best!

  2. Take your time until your blogging mojo returns. It's no fun if it's a chore :-(
    Fingers crossed your life has more goods than bads soon

  3. I hope you have a restful hiatus, Carrie :) I've been on a semi-hiatus ever since last summer it seems and I still haven't gotten my groove back so I completely understand. I know I'm not the best at holding down the 50/50 Friday fort (you are a gem for putting up with me) but I'll be upping my game in a couple weeks.
