And... This blog is Back!!

I'm back from vacation! Ready to start working again and to start reading and reviewing at good rythm too. I actually read quite a few good books these past few weeks, I especially enjoyed the much talked about The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society which was even better, and more surprising, than I expected. But I read others too so expect lots of reviews in the next few days.

I must confess that I had been feeling a bit tired and with little wish to blog lately. I do love all the blogs I participate in besides my own but I must confess that sometimes the pressure of wanting to post reviews so I can chat about the books I read (or movies I watch) gets to me. It's highly addictive yes, but it's also stressful when you start to think that you need to read more and faster. Is it just me or does it happen to you too?

Fortunately that bad feeling only comes once or twice a year and at the moment I'm quite ready to take on the TBR pile and start blogging regularly again. Being away these past two weeks made me miss all the buzz of the BBAW Awards. It seems there are some interesting memes around so I'll go catch up on those and see which ones I can still participate in.

I received quite a few books while away (I'll post a picture of the pile in the next few days)however, the fact that the mentioned TBR pile is getting bigger, and that I'm having trouble with space available for all the books I read, I decided that besides trading my extra copies and read books at Bookmooch I'll now sell them at Bibliofeira too. This is a portuguese site so this is mainly a heads up for my portuguese readers. :-) But... I'm also planning a couple of giveaways here at the blog so stay tuned for more info!

I guess that's it for now, I got a bit carried away and this seems like an overly long post... sorry! Tomorrow we resume the regular schedule. ;-)


  1. I know exactly what you mean...

    But it's great to have you back! Welcome back!!

  2. Yeah, you're perfectly right. It is not only you... blogging can become a "pleasant but stressful" addiction. Let's stick to the pleasant side of it and ... let us do it at the least stressful rythm we can. Welcome back!

  3. Thank you ladies, it's nice to have company! :-) And it's good to be back!!

  4. That has happened to me but that is why I am shaking up some of my challenges and swapping some that stress me out with ones I believe will be more fun for me.

  5. I might need to do the same, I finding easier to do challenges of periods or genres I like so I guess I'll stick to those in the future instead of the numeric or alphabetic ones... :-)

  6. It's not only you Ana! I think it's that way for a lot of us bloggers. Welcome back!


I love to chat about books and stuff and I would love to hear from like minded readers. Please do leave me a comment :-)
