This post has been a long time coming but in light of everything going on in my life now I feel it’s necessary.
Beginning immediately and for the foreseeable future, I am taking a hiatus from book reviewing in the capacity that I have previously been doing. At one point it was feasible in my life to be able to blow through 85 books in a year, writing reviews for all and not having a backup of books or annoyed authors waiting.
With recent developments, I have seen the amount of time available for me to devote to reading/reviewing be severely decreased as other interests, obligations and issues have crept in to compete for that time. As such I will no longer be taking any new requests. If you have previously asked for a request for me and are still waiting, I plan to work through my backlog as well as maintain my relationships with authors that I frequently review for (you all know who you are). I feel that scaling back to the bare minimum for a while will allow me to still provide reviews as well as accomplish other goals that I have set for myself.
Thank you to everyone who has asked me for a book review over the years. I have really enjoyed discovering authors that I never would have known had it not been for this blog.
