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.

Holly Black, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, and a Giveaway!

Last week, my local Indie, Schuler Books, hosted Holly Black on the last stop of her tour to promote her newest book, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. I've seen Holly before, and she's always a delight to meet and listen to. It was hard to get a picture of her because she's so animated when she talks. You can tell she really enjoys meeting her fans and sharing in all of our mutual love of good books.

Speaking of good books, I thoroughly enjoyed The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. In a sea of recent YA trilogies that seem to all follow the same basic template, it's refreshing to discover a one-off volume that breaks some of those templates and is able to stand on its own. Haven't read Coldest Girl yet, or would like to get your hands on a signed edition? This is for you! I had received an ARC copy prior to publication of Coldest Girl and then ended up buying a copy at the signing. I got both copies signed and I'd like to share my ARC copy with you. Just enter below for a chance to win!

Good luck and happy reading!
