Let’s Chat: Where Have I Been?

Posted by

Well hello there….

It’s been a long old while since I’ve posted on here. It’s been 17 days to be exact.

I never planned to have a break from the blog this early on in my ‘blogging career’, but there have been some things going on in my personal life recently that have taken priority over most other things, including reading and blogging.

I don’t really feel up to going through everything in detail at this time, I’m not entirely convinced that sharing my personal life on the world wide web is something that I feel comfortable with, nor if I’ll ever be comfortable with. I will say however that there has been some mental health related challenges, a physical health problem and a pretty hardcore relationship breakdown. Maybe someday I will feel more comfortable sharing this part of myself with you all, but today is not that day, and I hope you will understand.

Since the time I started this blog back in August, lots of things have happened. In the beginning the blog was something positive that I could focus my energy on, and it has been up until the last few weeks. Since the middle of November I have been really struggling to motivate myself to do much of anything. So much so that during the month long House Cup Reading Challenge I read 15 books and since then I have read only 6 books in the last 3 weeks.

This is me trying to explain myself I guess, in a way that is honest but without completely baring my soul. This is me try ing to drag myself out of whatever funk that I am in at the moment and just start blogging again. Hopefully normal service will be resumed shortly. Thank you all.


Peace and pages


  1. Hope to see you back blogging soon Amy 🙂 I’ve found that writing reviews and posts to be helpful for me during a very bad time for me. Reading has gone well and truly out the window recently- hopefully by the end of the week, things might be getting back to normal and I can return to reading. I hope that you get the mental and physical rest that you need at this time- we’ll always be here! 🙂 X

    1. Thank you Rich. This is seriously appreciated more than you could know. I can’t really bring myself to do much of anything at the moment and I’m guessing you know how that feels. I hope you’re holding up, and try not to worry about reading, it’ll come. We’re both in need of mental and physical rest at the moment I think. You know we’ll always be here for you too ❤️ X

      1. Yeah it’s definitely a shitty time right now. It doesn’t feel right to be in a festive mood which is going to be hard as I already have so many pre-arranged plans over the next few weeks with friends. I hope you get back to normal as fast and as best as you can. You can always DM on Twitter if you just want a break ❤ x
