Not Dead.

Hey everyone still following and reading. :)

I'm toying with re-starting my blog sometime soon, but it's so hard to find the time to do anything lately. I miss blogging and reading a ton and talking about books; so I am gonna see what I can do about it. :) I want to make a comeback to this but I gotta work out some kinks and make some decisions.

Hope you're all doing okay, happy reading. :)

I finally have a chance to sit down and make an update. :) I am still working on my comeback, but my blog will definitely be back on track by the end of this month. Life has gotten so busy and I am finally getting my balance back. :) There will be lots of mini reviews coming up - I've waited too long to write reviews on most of the books I read last year, so a mini review will have to do - but at least it's a start, right?! Also, if any of my wonderful followers that are still with me out there have any suggestions on how I can make a better blog, I'd LOVE to hear it! That's all for now. :)

Planning A Comeback...

Hey everyone. sorry it's been well...dead around here. Some things changed in my life and I had to step away from blogging and reading for a while. Nothing bad has happened though, just some changes. :) I might be back in December, January for sure for that nice fresh blogging re-start. :) Thanks to everyone who is still following me. I've been working hard to get life back in order and blogging about books is something I want to keep on doing for a long time. :) See you all soon! <3

What Do You Do? (1)

(I meant to write/post this yesterday, but I just didn't get around to it.)

What do you do when you realize you don't like the writing style of the book you are reading? Do you give up on it & remove the book from the list? Try out another book by that author, just to be sure? Do you remove everything by that author and avoid them like the plague and move on to your next read? :p

I recently found myself bored to death by a couple of books. I always hate giving up on books, but sometimes, I feel I just have to. This led me to wonder what other readers out there do, so I thought I would share my thoughts on it and I hope you will too. :)
When I find myself not digging a book, it depends on my mood to what I decide to do. Sometimes, I stick with it, sometimes I don't. Recently, I decided to just give up and move on to the next book on my list. Because honestly, I went a little e-book crazy at the library and I have at least five more books coming in over the next few weeks, so I don't feel I really had time enough to spend more time on that book to read it any further. I also decided to remove it completely from my list. I don't want to return to it at all, because I really just wasn't enjoying it. It was dull feeling and I actually found myself wanting to fall asleep while reading it. That was just one of the books.

New Author: Suzanne Enoch. (+Series Overview: The Adventurer's Club.)

When I first picked up The Care and Taming of a Rogue, I had no idea how much I would like this new favorite author: Suzanne Enoch. Even though the Adventurers' Club series didn't go like I thought it would, like I'd hoped it would, I still really liked it. It even pushed me out of my comfort zone a little. But I'll talk about that in a little bit.
I found her books to be fun and full of little twists and surprises that I couldn't get enough of. I'm really picky about my romance authors. I definitely have a comfort zone in that genre, so naturally I was a little wary of starting a series by a new-to-me author. But that first book really hooked me. I loved the characters and the story as a whole. It was refreshing, and made me feel good about trying a new author I was unsure about.

Friday Finds.

Fifty Shades of Grey.

I feel like I'm spiraling. Has a book ever done that to you after you've finished it?

I'm not going to officially review this. It's floating around way too much for my opinion to really matter. SO much hype. You have to read it and decide for yourself. So if those are your plans, click away now. Because even though I'm not really going to review this, I have an odd need to discuss it. Most likely spoilers ahead. I'm not going to be nice about this either. (Blame it on the spiraling.) If you loved it and don't want to see it criticized, please just go away now. You will be wasting your time if you find yourself hitting that comment button because you had the odd need to defend this book.

As a Self-Indulgent Side Note.

I'm going to see The Avengers again tomorrow morning. It's okay. You can be jealous. :p

More new blog posts tomorrow afternoon. I'm so glad my blog is no longer dead-asleep this week.
