I started this blog because I needed a place to talk about books to my heart’s content. I felt like I didn’t really have many people I could talk about endlessly with, and through this blog I found an amazing community of people who cared about the same stories as me and adored the same characters. Over the years I’ve shared discussions, thoughts on book to movie adaptations, and the more generic loves.
But with big changes in my life, my reading has changed a lot. I started to feel pressured to write a reviews on books I’d been indifferent on just so that I could make sure I had a new review up every Tuesday. I became exhausted and upset when I couldn’t think of anything more discussion based to talk about because I was having a hard time keeping up with the community. I was also scared that if I stopped, the online friends I’ve made would dwindle away.
I needed to make the best decision for my mental and physical health and that is, as you’ve guessed by the title, is to end this blog. I’ve had a truly wonderful time and I hope my posts have made at least one person happy. It breaks my heart to bring this chapter of my life to a close, but I am just not as passionate as I was before. I will continue bookish updates on other social media platforms; there will still be fully fledged reviews on my Goodreads but they just won’t be as consist as you may be used to from me.
It’s been fun, but now it’s time to say goodbye.
