I know I know I know. I come here and I post a review or two and then I fall off again. Then I come back with a semi good excuse (sometimes not), and the cycle repeats. Well, this time I have an amazing and adorable excuse and no false promises. I gave birth to my handsome son on December 16, and have been adjusting to motherhood every since. I thought that I’d come home, maintain the house, catch up on reading and work on the sequel to my NANOWRIMO project as well as my blog. I have done none of that. I have spent the last month with my adorable son, falling in love with him more each day. I have been reading-not just books for him, but some for me. Mainly I have been focusing on completing series, books that I don’t necessarily have to review. I am slowly coming out my mommy cocoon and entering back into the world, with a new set of priorities. I will always have a love for reading and reviewing books. But I can’t say that I’m racing through stacks trying to make it to the end. Yes, I still get lost in books-especially if they are well written. But, I don’t have the abundance of available time (I stopped saying free time, because time is not free.) like I used to. So, I have to be selective with how I spend my time. So the changes you will see on this blog are not much- posting will be more consistent. My plan is to post once a week, with the exception being tours and my diversity posts. Yes, I am going to get back into the diversity posts. Diversity has always been important to me, but more so now since my son is multiracial. I want him to grow up in a world that celebrates his differences instead of holding them against him.
So i leave you with this:
Check back next week for my tour post and review of Hound at the Gate by Darby Karchut.
Isn’t he handsome?
Oh, and in case you didn’t know January 24th is the first ever annual Readathon day from noon to 4pm. So if you can, #maketimetoread.
