I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m in a massive reading slump. Like, no kidding, guys. I think this is the worst slump I’ve been in… ever. I’ve been blaming it on The Fault in Our Stars–because it shattered my heart and soul and my entire existence–but eventually a slump hits a certain point where you start wondering if it’s less because of a book hangover and more because personal thoughts and feelings are getting in the way. That’s where I am.
Man! That was so melodramatic. Honestly, I just really haven’t been wanting to read for a long time (like months) and blogging has sort of been shoved to a back burner as well. I also want to spend more time on my photography and writing and just other things in life.
In case you haven’t gathered: I’m taking a break. I’m going on hiatus. Even as I’m writing this I don’t know that it’s actually going to work. I explained a bit in my 2014 goals post that it’s usually when I choose to take a break that I am thrusted back into reading and blogging… but this time, guys, I really need a break.
Am I leaving forever? Definitely not. This is, in fact, more of a semi-hiatus because 1) Bout of Books is still going. I’ve been doing pretty horribly at this readathon, but I intend to continue updating my post and finish it. 2) I already have some things sorted out and I would still like to post them/participate in them.
Anyway, I feel like I’m making a bigger deal about this than is called for. It may not be too big of a deal for you guys, but it is for me. I’ve been blogging here at Lisa Likes Books for over a year and have never planned an absence before… so it’s kinda weird.
I love and appreciate everyone who takes the time to read one or all of my blog posts. Thank you, thank you ❤
