I have read about 180 books in 2018 (some of them were re – reads) and that 180 seems like a whole lot of books to read in a year; but even through that amount of books; when you go through the list of the books that have actually made this list are few, comparatively.

Hello, lovely fellow readers!! How has 2017 been treating you so far? Well, 2017 has brilliant so far for yours truly! I married the love of my life, and now have been adulating for almost 2 months now and I haven’t yet killed anybody! YAY!! 😛
But what has been going out of control is my TBR pile – I know, I know, when hasn’t that been true. But this time, I am doing something proactive to tackle this pile! Continue reading 2017 TBR Challenge
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 ❤

That! That dance is exactly what I did when I realised I have 200 amazing peeps following me here ❤
There was a time when I scoffed at the fact that I would have 10 people even wanting listen to my thoughts about a book – any book and yet here we are – with 200 of you giving me all this love ❤
I am honestly very grateful! And I absolutely adore every single one of you who takes time out to listen to my rambles 😀
And just so you know, I am never letting even a single one you leave – keeping you all here – with books as bribes 😛
While I would love to do a giveaway appreciating everything ya’ll do for me – I am gearing up for a big giveaway in November that might or might not include a Signed book and boxset 😉
You’ll just have to wait and find out 😀
Love you!! Happy Reading to All ❤
