Taking A Break

OK so as it turns out from Sunday evening I won't have an internet access other than on my mobile. This could last for at least a month because we have to wait until the 26th of October for someone to come and fit a phone line at our new flat before we can even begin to get internet again. I will try and be on Twitter etc as much as possible. I don't know how I am going to cope, but at least I will be forced to focus on writing my novel.

So I have decided to take a break from book blogging for an undecided period of time. There are a number of reasons one is because I want to go back to reading books just for myself for a while, and not reading books because I am on a deadline. All the books I request for review are ones that I want to read for sure, but I want to go back to reading at my own pace. I have books that I really want to read but don’t have the time due to other bookish commitments. 
Another reason is that many of you know I am a writer and aspiring author, so I would like to be able to spend more time focused on my writing. I am writing a book at the moment, and I would love to have the first draft done before Christmas. This is somewhat of an ambitious task but we shall see how I progress.
Also my Husband and I have finally found a new flat to live in a completely different area to where we are now. So as you can imagine this move will be a very stressful and time consuming, not to mention the fact that I will be without internet for a couple of weeks. I am very excited about this move, and about decorating as well. Not looking forward to all the stress though!
I do still have a couple of blogging commitments this month that I intend to keep, so if I am part of your blog tour then do not worry. I do not let people down. Also I will still be active on social media, so I am still contactable if the need arises. I will still be maintain my website on occasion and when possible but I am hoping to start focusing on my own writing as well as reading and reviewing. 

Things are going really well at the moment and I want to be able to embrace it. I have one or two sessions of counselling left, my doctor has agreed to start the slow process of taking me off my depression medication. This has been a tough year in many ways, but I am finally nearing the end of the tunnel. This feels like a new beginning, I am finally getting back to being healthy and (hopefully) mentally stable (well as much as I can) and I have a new home to look forward to. So onwards and upwards and all that.

If you need to contact me, feel free to do so through the usual channels. 

But for now, have a great week and chat to you all soon.
