Another 'Where I've Been' Post

Hello. Long time since I've updated this blog and oh, I'm not going to apologise. Sometimes life just takes over.  It's been a challenging few months and family stuff and university work and my own mental health took priority for awhile. I've been very much hanging on by a thread lately and I didn't have the energy or enthusiasm that it takes to maintain a time-consuming hobby like book blogging. I hope you'll understand.

But, having said that, I feel like I'm at the point now where I'd like to return. Only it's really difficult after several months away from blogging to get back into it. To start up that routine again. I've thought about writing this post, or one very like it, every day for a week now and it hasn't happened until now. I've lost so much momentum and now it feels like I'll have to work really hard to just get back to where I was. I hope you'll stick with me for awhile as I start all over again.

I do have some ideas for future blog posts. Reviews, discussion posts, some bookish lists. Do you want to hear about my holiday to Italy? My adventures around UK theme parks? We'll see how I go with it.  Just out of curiosity, what would you like to see here? What, if anything, have you missed from me in my absence? Assuming you noticed my absence at all!

I look forward to being part of the book blogging community again very soon!


  1. Just write whatever you feel like, to get back into it. I'm very glad you're back Michelle, and hope you're feeling better now :)

  2. Welcome back! I've had the same problem after a lull around Christmas due to parental health problems. I'm finding I want to write more about me (!) and less about books, so go for it, share holidays and days out, the highs and lows of life. It turns out there was more to it than books :)

  3. Sorry to hear you've been overwhelmed lately, Michelle, and welcome back! I love your bookish posts, but would be interested to hear about more general life stuff too. Maybe you should just think about what you want to write about, that way it won't end up feeling like Just Another Chore. (I need to take my own advice one this, I think...) I look forward to your next posts : ) x

    1. Thank you, CJ :) I've made a list over the weekend of what I want to say. Hopefully I will, eventually, sit down and write them now. We shall see :)


HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
