Stacking the Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Reading Reality

what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul

I seem to be taking longer and longer between these STS posts, huh? Ah well, I’ve actually been a lazy so-and-so recently – can’t seem to get my finger out and not just with my blog! I haven’t posted at all this month and, even though my posts have been sporadic at best for the last wee while, I haven’t gone this long without posting before (except when I have taken a blogging hiatus…)

I didn’t intentionally mean to take a break this time but I kept putting it off and now here we are. I must have needed the time to get away and clear my head, had a lot going on outside of blogging and it all takes a toll so something has to give. I have spent the last couple of weeks reading and gaming and chilling out watching TV shows and films. I’m thinking it was a much-needed rest and hopefully now my batteries have been re-charged I can get back into the flow of posting regularly.
