Hello to all my dear readers!
I apologize for my brief disappearance, but if you are following me on Twitter, it is easy to see why. For those who do not, allow me to give a brief summary of this past week:
On Saturday the 15th, I was at work and received a text from my mom. She said my dad was being taken to the hospital as he had slipped and was feeling nauseous, etc. Turns out he had had a mild heart attach and in doing the heart catheterization the doctors learned that he had several major blockages. He was admitted to the hospital where he had open heart surgery Tuesday morning and ended up having a quadruple bypass.
As of today (Friday) he is still in the ICU but is doing well and will hopefully be moved to a real room in a day or so and after several days there will be able to come home.
Naturally, this has taken up the majority of my attention and I am sure you all understand.
It is during this time of the year that I generally go on hiatus from posting. I continue to read and one can always keep up with what I’m reading by checking out my Goodreads list, but new reviews won’t be posted until the new year.
Until that point, I want to wish all my readers a happy end of year. Whatever you celebrate, may it be a enjoyable time. As always, I can be reached via my Twitter or my e-mail and I look forward to seeing you all in the new year!
Check it out – I finally made it to 100 followers! Thank you to every last one of you!
Good afternoon dear readers!
In an effort to update my blog and make it a bit more visually pleasing, you might notice small changes over the next few updates. They won’t be large changes as I am already happy overall with how my blog looks. It will just be small tweaks and such, especially in regards to linking all my social media accounts together.
As the changes take place, if there are any you like or dislike, or if any of the links do not work, please let me know. I welcome any and all feedback.
Wow, it is so hard to believe that it’s been 4 years here already! Four years – and while there have been many ups and downs, I haven’t regretted a single moment. So far it has been a fun ride and I am looking forward to many more!
I’m so proud, dear readers. I’ve got my first badge! Hopefully it will be the first of many more.
Today is my birthday, dear readers! I received some very nice gifts from my family this year. Including a book that I have been wanting to read and will be reviewing some time soon.
As I’m sure you can see there is a bit of a theme. Can you guess who one of my favorite characters is?
Aside from my love of reading, one of my other loves is sewing and the creating of costumes. My most recent creation is this purple jacket here:
Astute readers will likely recognize the jacket as resembling the one worn by Missy in Doctor Who. A matching skirt is being made to be worn with it.
Greetings to all my followers, both old and new.
Today, I received a message that I’ve hit a milestone – I now have 50 followers!
Thank you so much for following my little book blog – you have no idea how much I appreciate it. Thank you to those who have followed me from the start and to those who have joined me along the way. Reading and writing for this blog has certainly been a learning experience and one I hope to continue for a long time.
Happy holidays my dearest readers!
I apologize greatly for my lack of a post last week, these past few weeks have been quite busy for me and mine. For those that do not remember, back in August there was severe flooding here in South Louisiana and many families were forced to evacuate. My family and I were among those displaced.
It is only within this last week were we able to finally return to our home after losing nearly everything within it and we are slowly putting our lives back together.
It is usually around this time that I announce my brief holiday hiatus. A time where I do not post any reviews and instead concentrate on spending time with friends and family. I’m afraid I started a week early with no post last week and it is only now that I can update my dear followers.
So, I am officially (as of last week *laughs*) on hiatus. I shall return in the new year with new books and new reviews. I wish all of you a happy holiday season whatever you celebrate (or don’t celebrate).
May we all find health and happiness in the new year!
Oh my goodness, has it really been that long?
Two years ago I started this little blog to share my love of books. I never thought I would have so many wonderful followers or make so many good friends.
It is my hope to keep this site going for a good long time. For there are always new books to read and review!
Here is to another year and more!
