It is Never a Goodbye….


This wasn’t an easy decision to make – honestly, it has been the most debated decision of my life. 

If you follow me on Instagram, then you would know that this weekend I had gone to meet my would be in-laws (the meeting went fine and they loved me; at least I think so😛), but it also gave me time to reflect – I spent my time reading to get my mind of this stressful and that’s when I realized that through all the wonderful new experiences I was gaining as a Blogger, there was one experience I was slowly losing on – reading purely for pleasure.

It took me this weekend to realise that my reading has become a part of the deadlines; where before I used to be able to pick up books according to my mood; and now I pick them up, depending on when the review is due. I love re-reading my favorites, and it’s been months since I have been able to do so, for having a blog, a full time job and a love life doesn’t really leave much time for me!

And that’s exactly what is happening – falling in love with a man, my man has been the most wonderful experience of my life; having this blog and sharing my love for books is another beautiful part of my life – but both these parts, though rarely intersecting, became my whole life – but that never left a part for just me – the part, the time where I spent with my books – my refuge.

But that’s not all that happened this weekend – I am getting married in the next three months – those three months are going to be the most frustratingly wonderful experience of my life. And I am so looking forward to sharing those frustrations and amazing moments with my guy.

But that means that I will not be able to do my wedding preparations, my full time job and be able to do justice to this baby that I have created and nurtured.

This weekend has led me to make a decision that is breaking my heart – but it is one that I know that I really need to make – I am taking a break from blogging at least until March 2017

It wasn’t an easy decision to make – but for the upcoming 3-4 months, I NEED reading to be my refuge, my safe place so I don’t turn into a Bridezilla😉

I will still be active on Instagram, Goodreads and hopefully on Facebook – I won’t ever leave the beautiful world that we readers have created for ourselves – and I hope that you won’t let go either <3 

Release Day Blitz: Win Some Lose Some by Shay Savage

For Matthew Rohan, every day is a struggle. Each task others complete without thinking is a challenge for him. Recently orphaned, he has to finish the last few months of high school and take care of his disabled sister on his own. When Mayra comes into his life, his comfortable routines implode.

Matthew can’t handle change, but Mayra is unrelenting in her quest to understand him, to show him acceptance and maybe even love. When she breaks through his shell, Matthew’s world will never be the same again. An awkward boy with Asperger’s Syndrome, a persistent girl who pulls him out of his isolated existence, and a lottery ticket that will change their lives forever.
