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.

Today in books, or a surprise envelope from Random House!

I got home today to find that I received another envelope of goodies in the mail, this time from Random House. I received a copy of Cherie Priest's new book, Bloodshot, and an ARC of the first book in a new fantasy series that I have never heard of before, The Iron Druid Chronicles. The series is by Kevin Hearne and the first book is titled Hounded. The description on the back of the book makes it sound like something I'm really going to enjoy! Hounded will be available May 3, 2011 from Del Rey Books and Bloodshot is available in bookstores now.

I'm thrilled to have received both of these books and am wondering if I can find some more hours to add to my day so that I can find time to read all these great books!

Happy reading, everybody!
