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.

It's Author Season!

I've been lucky enough this week to attend not one, but two!, author events, each hosted by my favorite local Indies.

Steve Hamilton
First up, last night Schuler Books hosted Steve Hamilton for the kick off of his signing tour for the release of his newest Nick Mason book, Exit Strategy. Steve is a very funny man and very humble and I've enjoyed both times that I've gotten to meet him.

Paula Hawkins
Tonight, Nicola's Books hosted Paula Hawkins for the release of her new book, Into the Water. I was lucky enough to meet Paula many moons ago at one of the ALA Mid Winter Conferences in Chicago right after the release of The Girl on the Train and she is just as charming now as she was then.

Next week, there will be back to back signings again at Schuler, for Josh Malerman and his newest, Black Mad Wheel, and then the next night with Jacqueline Carey for Miranda and Caliban.
To purchase these books from Schuler Books, just click on the covers above! You'll be getting an awesome book, supporting a great local independent bookstore, and helping me get more books!
