Where Have I Been?

I sort of hit a blogging slump.  It's much like a reading slump, but instead of not wanting to read I didn't want to blog.  I had things to blog about and I did read books.  But I didn't want to blog about them.

The good news is that I now have a little room to pre-schedule reviews and will have like a three week advantage.

The bad news is that I have decided to abandon a book.  The first one this year, The Fifth Vial by Michael Palmer.  I will post a full run down about why I decided to throw in the towel latter today.

What's Happening This Week:
  • Sunday:  20% Rule -why I did not finish The Fifth Vial
  • Monday:  I will be interviewing author Eugenia O'Neal (my first author interview).  I really hope you stop by and read the interview Eugenia is a really nice person and her interview is full of information.
  • Tuesday:  Teaser Tuesday  featuring I'm Only Human After All by Alex Rogers
  • Wednesday:  Review of Jessamine by Eugenia O'Neal.
  • Friday: Friday Finds
  • Saturday: Stacking The Shelves

  • Win 1 copy of Jessamine by Eugenia O'Neal.  Entry rules and details are on the GiveAway page.

This has to be the first time in a long time where I have had a post scheduled for every day in a week.  I don't know how people do it, it's exhausting.

Happy Reading,


  1. I get how you feel when blogging just doesn't feel like the best thing to do on Earth :/ Rest well, take a blogging break and maybe you'll come back more refreshed!

    I'm now a proud new follower of your blog, do drop by mine @ Book a World too!


  2. Sometimes a break is needed and can be good, don't worry about it. It is exhausting posting every day and I don't do it often. You have to find a posting schedule that works for you and the heck with that others do.

    I read The Fifth Vial; it wasn't great but I mostly enjoyed it. I have found that the older I get, the more willing I am to DNF a book. There isn't enough time to waste on a book that isn't working for me.

  3. Taking a break sometimes clears the mind. It's always a good thing. I hope you have a great week ahead.

  4. Aw, I know how you feel. I've been in a reading slump this month. Hopefully it starts picking up. Good luck with scheduling, it makes things much easier :)

  5. There are definitely a few books I should have quit reading this year! And pushing through with them always puts me in a reading slump - that's what;s happening now with my audiobook.

  6. Hope the break worked and you find yourself enjoying it. Looking forward to your week ahead. Thanks for being a part of The Sunday Post

  7. Aww it is ok to abandon a book. I've done it a time or two. I'd rather spend time in a book I enjoy.

    Enjoy your week!


  8. I've gone through blogging and reading slumps this year too. I learned that it's okay to step back and take a breather!
