I'm back to book blogging! OK, this time for sure. I'm finally in the mood again and in a good place again to want to be taken in by books and more books. That wasn't the case for me in 2013 and throughout that time to 2014. Maybe even before then. That's what stress does to you. Stress makes you lose the passion you had for the things you used to love.
While I could be tempted to moan and feel self-pity for myself, oh, and there is that. I think in the end this might have been a good thing. While I had quite the time working with so many people from big-name publishers to the small. This is for the best. That kind of life was stressful.
With what is left of 2015 I hope instead to blog about books that solely personally interest me as an individual. I might still take review requests, if I'm interested but I'm in no hurry. I can buy my own manga, comics, or books. Heck. I already have several books on my digital bookshelves I will soon be buying in print. While I am tempted to just up and read books that I kind of have been meaning to read for some time now like Parallel Worlds by Michio Kaku and get on reading Queen of the Faire by Gillian Summers. I will stick to responsibility momentarily since I recall getting a print copy of Philistine by Steven Shrewsbury from Seventh Star Press, therefore I will finish reading Philistine and reviewing it. After that though, I will be leisurely reading and reviewing. No deadlines. No author reminders to get things done. Book reviews and eventual author interviews will be entirely based on personal interest and devotion. Why rush myself?
