Hey ya’ll. So as some of you may have noticed, the past two months have been CRAZY for me – I was working 60-70 hours a week, started a 2nd job, got sick for about a week, etc. I am so, so sorry for the lack of posting on this here blog, the lack of reviews, and also for my lack of blog-reading and commenting. There are times at work when I have some spare time to go online and catch up on my Google Reader, but I try not to do it often because I don’t want work to block my access to blog-related stuff. So again, I’m so so sorry and thank you SO MUCH for putting up with my madness.
On a happier note – my work schedule at my main job has gone back to normal, which means I’m back to my 36-48 weeks with more days off. YAY! I’m still working part time at Lane Bryant, which is usually only 4 to 8 hours a week and shouldn’t be too much of a hinderance in all things reading and blog-related. I’m really looking forward to getting up in the morning, making coffee, and reading blogs before I go start my day. It’s my favorite way to start my days off.
Now, for those of you that voted in October’s poll – as you can see, it’s the last day of October and I still haven’t posted my review for Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. That’s because I’m still reading it. I swore to myself that I was going to get it done early in the month, but I’m a giant procrastinator and kept putting it off because I haven’t been in the mood for a 1000 page book. I kept telling myself to save it for the readathons – which I did, but then proceeded to read other, shorter books to make me feel like I accomplished more. However I have started JS & Mr. N, and so far I’m enjoying it. It’s like Austen or some other old-timey author decided to write some quirky historical fantasy set in old England. Also, I’m reading it via audiobook and paperback so that I can read it as often as possible and hopefully I’ll be posting the review for you by the end of the week. I feel really bad that I haven’t gotten it read and reviewed for you guys yet, but I promise it’ll happen.
As my thank-you to you guys for being such awesome readers and for being so nice to me while I’ve been all hectic, I’m giving away a copy of Lola and the Boy Next Door.
To enter, just leave me a comment with a way to get in touch with you – preferably either via Twitter or email. Giveaway ends Friday the 4th. The winner will be chosen most likely by random.org, and I’ll contact the winner for the mailing address.
Again, thanks for being so awesome, and I’ll try to get JS & Mr. N read ASAP. You guys are the best!!!!
