After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

Shatterboy by Scott William Carter


Title: Shatterboy
Author: Scott William Carter

I'm not actually counting this towards my reading goal for the year, but I did want to make mention of it. I don't know where it can be found to read other than through Apple's iBook app, where it is being offered as a free download right now.

It's a short story that revolves around Rebecca, who discovers a boy made of glass at the recycling center the day her husband is filing for divorce. At first, she thinks he is nothing more than a doll, until he moves, and she realizes that he is, in fact, alive.

What follows is a quick but eerie story of her growing obsession with the glass boys safety (she's afraid that he may break) and her need to keep him close to her, so that she can love him.

It's only about 20-ish pages on my iBook and it only took me a few minutes to read, but it was a creepy little story all the same and just thought it worth mentioning.
