Total pages read: 789

Total # of books for the year: 73.  I had a semi-meltdown after an exam last week.  The Boyfriend and Dewey’s Readathon allowed me to recover, but I’ve finally admitted to myself that I’m trying to do too much.  After this month until at least mid-December, I’ll be stepping back a bit from the blog.  What that means is I won’t be writing any more monthly “features” except Thursday’s Things, and the only reviews I’ll be writing will be for the ARCs I’ve already agreed to read/review.  Everything else will stay mostly the same, but just that will be a bit of a breather and give me the chance to focus more on other things.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Sorry you’ve been having a rough time with balancing everything! It’s always good to take a step back from blogging if you feel overwhelmed- there’s a lot of bloggers who burn out and then I go visit their vacant sites… it’s depressing. Hope you get caught up with life/college and everything!
