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.

Eleanor Brown and The Weird Sisters


You know who is delightful? Eleanor Brown. I had the opportunity to meet her week before last at my local book store, Schuler Books. I got a copy of The Weird Sisters when it was originally released last year, yet haven't gotten around to reading it. (I know. I hang my head in shame) I wanted to hear her speak about her book all the same, and I'm so glad that I did. I thoroughly loved her. She's funny, personable and an all around engaging person. I picked up a copy of the paperback edition of her book with the intention of giving it away on my blog, but have since discovered that my sister has been wanting it, so sorry kids, but family trumps blog. If you ever have a chance to meet her, don't miss that chance. You won't be disappointed.

And needless to say, The Weird Sisters bounced right to the top of my TBR pile as a result of talking to her.

You can check out her website here, follow her on Twitter here, or "Like" her on Facebook here.

She sounds lovely, I also heard this reviewed on The Book Report ( this week, and I have just started reading it, so far so good!

I read this one earlier in the year and really enjoyed it! The sisterly dynamic was fascinated -- and I always love books about sisters. This would have been fun to listen to on audio!
