I feel like I owe you a little explanation as to where I’ve been, why I haven’t replied back to comments as fast as I usually do and why I haven’t posted or blog hopped! My last post was my Six of Crows review which went out February 11th, so only 12 days have passed but I’ve been posting less and less as you can probably tell. Why?
Well simply i’m just snowed under right now, as you know i’m in my final year of university. I graduate in July so these are the last few months filled with essays, my dissertation and then exams. Whenever i’m not at university i’m doing my work and then at weekends i’m at my job.
I’m feeling extremely stressed right now but I wanted to offer you all an explanation, I’ve not abandoned you. I hate that I can’t keep up to date with all your blog posts. I miss you and this blog so much.
I’m going to try and put some posts out along the way during this last long hurdle in my university journey. I hope you can stick with me.
I’m sorry again for my lack of contact. Happy reading, I can’t wait to catch up properly.

Hey Guys, Today I want to do a helpful tip/discussion type post for you. One focused on how I juggle my book blog, my third year of university and my job. When I first thought about starting a blog I thought it would be really easy, in my head I just thought ‘Oh it’s just writing about the books I love…’.
What a shock that was. Blogging takes time, finding images, making headers, replying to comments, making posts etc there is a lot of work that goes into it. Now I’m in my third year of university and in all honesty I’m struggling a little bit because second year was hard but now the pressure is really on. Here are some little tips that I hope help you if you ever feel the way I do;
Today is the day!
