Delayed post---Happy New Year.....

I know this is late but.......
Happy New Year to all!! All the best for 2013 and i hope it brings us many brilliant reads and new releases, i am excited!

I apologise for my absence from my blog, twitter and the world of the book community.  There have been several personal problems, as i have explained before in relation to my health and it has meant i needed to step away.  I have hardly read anything in months, i have started books and then stopped. I feel like a complete failure for this blog and i loved it so much, it was not only my hobby but my passion.  I may have burnt out a little by taking too much on, expecting too much from myself  and comparing myself to other bloggers too much.  The only thing i could do was break away and turn my back on this, but now, i want to start back again.  I miss my blog, i miss talking to other bloggers and reading other people's blogs.

So i am back.........however, i do not promise anything in relation to the quantity of posts or how many reviews i write.  I will do what i enjoy so that this doesn't feel like a chore.  I am trying to remind myself constantly why i started blogging and doing book reviews. I have SO many books to read; ones i have purchased, ones sent for review and i really want to read a lot of those so will not be taking on too many new releases. I want to enjoy this and feel successful.

Hope everyone is well :) xx

Having problems.......

I felt like i need to explain my absence once again and to ask you to please stick with me.  I am currently having problems with so many things that i feel everything is stacked against me.  I am having health problems, internet issues and laptop problems, also time to read is really limited :( I will keep doing occasional blog posts and will be checking in on people's blogs. I am hoping that in the New Year, a lot will be sorted and i can get back to normal.

I have thought about deleting my blog and everything related to it but it feels like my baby and i just cannot do it.  I just cannot give it my all right now, no one wants to do a guest post on here and that is fine.  I still have items to post out which i haven't had chance to do it, sorry.  The fact i cannot give it my all right now makes me feel extremely guilty and i get a bad feeling about the blog, meaning i just do not want to even log on as avoidance is easier than the reality that my blog is failing.

Please stick with me, i plan to have the occasional posts and i will get back to normal, hopefully by the New Year at the latest. Decemeber is a majorly busy month with christmas, my son's birthday and we go on holiday (vacation) too so i think with everything else and this limited time- i would set myself up to fail to get back to normal now.

Sorry everyone.

Stacking the Shelves #23

This is a meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga Reviews and is to haul all the books we have got this week, whether bought physical or e-book, whether for review,from the library, won in a giveaway as a prize or even borrows from a friend. With this you can supply your link and then see what everyone else has bought.   This is the link for this weeks collection 'Stacking the Shelves 27' (my numbers are slightly behind :) )  The meme starts on  a Saturday, but you can join all week.  So this is my haul;

This week....Buying ban has not being stuck too but only because i saw two books that i fell in love with, one had a fantastic review that hooked me in and the other i have wanted for ages- i did a 'WoW' post on it.  I haven't requested any books for review this week but i did get excepted for some that i had requested previously.

I normally take pictures of the books i buy but i haven't this week,sorry.
Lifesaving for Beginners
Definitely read on Goodreads, they both sounds fantastic! I even had the 'Time Between Us' sent from America because the UK cover is nothing in comparison in my opinion.

For Review.

I suffer from this often but only if the last book was AMAZING.
