My Bookish Birthday Wishes!

descriptiondescriptiondescription
Well, it’s not  my birthday yet. My birthday is on Tuesday (May 10th) and since I didn’t get anything last year (my birthday was pretty much forgotten), I’m guessing I wont be getting anything this year. However, I still thought it would be fun to share with you guys what books I would love to get. These are just some of the books I am dying to get my hands on. If my parents surprised me with one or two of these books, I would be so happy. So parents, even though I’m sure you don’t read my blog….*hint hint* 😉

Sorry…

I just wanted to say that I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything this week. I have been really sick. Hopefully next week I will be feeling better. Okay, I’m going back to bed. 🙂

I May Be Taking A Blogging Break….Later.

UPDATE: Hey guys! Looks like I’m not taking that break right now. I did go to the hospital today and luckily I was able to come home. However I do think that break will happen sometime soon. I just wanted to let you know that I am home and I will continue to read and post reviews and such until the time comes when I need that break.

Before I get into why I might be taking a break I just want to say I’m sorry to any authors who have sent me a book for review. I promise I will get to your book as soon as I possibly can. I don’t plan on be gone too long.

The reason I am most likely taking a break is because I am having some health problems. I was told that I probably need surgery and I have been putting this off for three years. You might be asking why I would put something like this off for so long and the reason is I have anxiety. Really bad anxiety. To be completely honest, I might not even get the courage to go to the hospital today even though I had a weird feeling in my chest, right around where my heart is, and got dizzy and almost passed out.

If I do manage to go to the hospital today, there is a chance that I will finally be having that surgery. That is why I might be taking a break from blogging. I just don’t think I will feel up to writing reviews, posting, even reading. If I do feel up to reading, I will probably want books that aren’t too heavy, because I might be weak. I will want something that is a fast read and something that wont trigger my anxiety. I also don’t want to pick up any books that I’m supposed to be reviewing. I will probably be on something for the pain and something about reading a book I’m supposed to review while on some kind of drug just doesn’t seem right.

I do have posts already scheduled for the rest of the week and one or two random ones for next week. I wont have time to do anymore than that. I hope everyone understands and sticks with me. I will try not to be gone too long. If I leave at all.

Oh, I’m also sorry if this post isn’t too great. My chest is bothering me and so is my anxiety so I don’t feel like re-reading and re-writing it a thousand times before posting it. Sorry if there are typos and stuff.

Short But Important Update

I know I haven’t been posting very often and I don’t think I will be for a while. I will still try and do Waiting on Wednesday and whenever I get books, I will do Stacking the Shelves, but other than that, I’m taking a break.

For the last six months I have been sick, and with that has also come a lot of pain. I’m fine, but I don’t know what the next few months will be like and I don’t want to promise reviews and such and not be able to do them. I am hoping to get what has been making me sick taken care of soon, but due to me having sever anxiety, it may take some time.

I am planning on just relaxing and getting as much reading done as I can. As of right now, I’ve only read 26 books this year and that isn’t normal for me. If all goes as planned, I should be back posting on a regular basis in January. I know that is a long break, but I honestly have no idea when I will be getting better.

I hope all of you will forgive me and stick with me. Hopefully 2014 will be better than this year has been. Now stop reading this, and go pick up a book. 🙂

Coming Back to Blogging.

I used to have a book blog a long time ago and it got to be too much for me at the time. Reading became more work than pleasure, which is never a good thing. I have been wanting to get back in to book blogging for awhile now and even started another blog. However, I have had some trouble with it. I started out on Blogger and that is where I went back to. After creating a blog, and then being unable to get back on to continue with it, I decided to try some place new. That is how I came to be on wordpress.

I am very upset about the fact that I have at least two months worth of posts, mostly reviews, lined up ready to go and now I can’t get back on. They are scheduled, so they will be posting automatically and there is nothing I can do to stop it. So my plan is to just copy and paste my reviews from this other blog until they run out on there.  This is not something I wanted to do, but I am not going to have the reviews that I worked so hard on, be on another blog that I can’t use, when I can have them here. So if you happen to see the reviews I post here, on another blog, that is why. This should only last until March or April of 2013. After that, I believe there wont be anything else going up on the blog I can no longer get onto.

I hope this blog will be as fun as my old one was, and that you, whoever you are, follow and leave comments so I can get to know you. Feel free to recommend books to me. I read just about anything I can get my hands on. You can also add me on Goodreads, follow me on Twitter or send me an email at TheBookHoarder@hotmail.ca
