So I feel bad.
I've neglected The Romance Bookie so much in the last year, it's not even funny!
A lot has happened in my life! I got my drivers license, met an amazing guy, working like crazy, and of course school.
It's been all a lot to handle, some amazing, some crazy, and some just super annoying! However, it all needs to be done, and sometimes unfortunately, while I hate to admit it, reading has to go on the back burner.
That being said, I'm still so unbelievably in love with books. I went to a couple of Thrift Stores the other day, and where do I head first?
The book section of course!
It's just second nature by now! I did hold myself back from buying too many books, and ended up walking away with one good find that I couldn't turn down.
And it's not like I have stopped reading! I still read! It just has been taking me a lot longer to finish a book! On average I've been finishing maybe one or two books a month...which yes is absolutely pathetic, especially taking into account that in 2012 I read over 110 books! 110! Isn't that crazy?!
However, back in 2012, reading was the only thing I had going on that gave me any excitement in my life! I had to rely on people to get anywhere, so I stayed home a lot; I didn't have a job, and my classes were all online.
And while, I don't regret not having a social life, because I had the opportunity to read so many fabulous books, I must admit that I have been extremely happy this past year!
I get to drive myself around to wherever my heart desires! In fact, I'll be driving myself to my first couple of signings next month!!!! I get to hang out with amazing friends whenever I have free time! And I get to spend as much time as I can with my wonderful boyfriend.
It's been a crazy few months, but totally and extremely worth it!
That being said...I miss reading! I've been itching to write reviews, but I just am not reading fast enough to be able to write reviews!! I'm almost tempted to reread books that I know I absolutely love, possible some I've already reviewed and rereview them, if my opinions have changed or even if not; but just so I can read, and get back into the swing of things!!
I've been so restless too! Not even in a bad way; but just in a way where I want to do SOMETHING!! Whether it be write (like I'm doing right now), scrapbook, go out and buy books or clothes (which unfortunately I can't do, because I need gas money lol); but just do SOMETHING!!!!
So here's what I will try to do! I want to start writing again here on The Romance Bookie, on a regular basis. Now I don't know if I'll get to writing as much as I did back in 2012 and before; and I don't know if I'll be reading AS MUCH as I did before; but I do want to read at least a little bit more, and I also want to write a blog post at least once a week! Whether it be a book review, or just a random post like this that is related to books somehow!
I also have started up Music Tuesdays again, so I hope you all get to enjoy some possibly new music! :)
Now that's it from me for now, I'm off to find something to do; whether it's come up with some possibly interesting/entertaining book topics to discuss in the future, or read my latest book!
I just don't know! :)
Well, I hope everyone is having a great week, and I will be back soon!! :)
The Romance Bookie :)
