Sabbatical

I'm sure many of you have noticed the lack of posts the past few weeks. In fact, they have been dwindling for a couple months now. I wanted to take a moment to explain what happened and what's going to happen going forward.

A while ago a close family member was diagnosed with lung cancer and I was caring for him. On June 9th he passed away quite suddenly and unexpectedly.

After the shock and loss I obviously just haven't really felt like doing any book reviews. I just wasn't up to it.

I'm still recovering from the loss and am going to take the remainder of the month off to rest emotionally and just take some time for myself.

I will return in August, hopefully refreshed and ready to go again.

So, what does this mean if you are awaiting a review? Well, obviously, during the final months of his time here I was focused on my family member and review books did pile up. That's part of the reason for the sabbatical. I will be reviewing all the books in my queue and posting reviews. I just need some time to organize everything and get back into the swing of things. But, rest assured, your book will be reviewed.

What does this mean for my readers? Well, expect a dearth of posts during the remainder of July and a flurry of reviews and other posts upon my return in August. Hopefully you will stick with me during this break and I know that I truly appreciate you all and that I look forward to returning to you.

Thank you all for your support during this time and I will see you all again in August!
