I really enjoyed the books that I read for September and hopefully I can do the same with the books for October.

Update

It has been a good couple of months since I last did anything blog related. This has not been a good reading year for me and I have been in the biggest reading slump ever. However, I am slowly getting out of the slump. I have read some books including some books that I was sent to review. I will have those posted within the next couple of days. I know that this is towards the latter part of the year but I have been brainstorming some different ideas and approaches to give good content without getting "tired" of the same old. But I wanted to let you guys know that I have not forgotten about you nor this blog but I felt I needed to stay away for a while for personal reasons.

I feel better and more refreshed. As I said before look out for some more reviews that will come up in a couple of days.

Slump Madness




First, I want to apologize for my absence. I have absolutely no idea what is wrong or where my motivation has gone to. The things that I love to do I haven't done which is reading, blogging, drawing, panting, and journaling in a month...A Month. I've never gone that long without posting anything on my blog.

I know that a lot of people have these moments and when I usually have them its never this long. I hate feeling like this. Absolutely hate it because this is something that I love to do. I have a live show coming up next Saturday and I will have the book read by then but I'm no where near finished reading it.

Most of all I don't want to feel obligated and make something forced because that will take out the fun for everything. I want to be happy and give good quality posts and content and I want that to have a good reflection on me as well.

I just have not had the urge or motivation to do any of that. So my question for you guys.What is it that you do whenever you feel yourself losing motivation or in a slump that is affecting everything that you have a love for? I'm open to any and everything and desperately want to get out of this yuck feeling.
