A Long Overdue Wrap-Up

When I logged into my blog last night, I was shocked to discover that it had been well over a year since my last post. That’s 436 days of reading, writing and blogging time unaccounted for.

It is true that to some degree I fell out of love with the entire process, but this was in part due to the culmination of my Master’s degree in English (which I have now obtained, I am very happy to say!)

…hopefully followed by a long overdue bookshelf reorder

Having now wrapped-up (so to speak) the academic part of my life (unless I one day take the plunge and embark on a PhD), I feel the time is right to reimerse myself in the book blogging community that has provided me with countless hours of entertaining and creative content from so many wonderful people, as well as the space to express my own love of literature.

So, a small reading wrap-up since *cough* June 5, 2018.
