Earth to Holly?

Hello fellow bookaholics! ❤

It’s been nearly three long months but I am ridiculously excited to announce that I am finally ready to return to the marvellous world that is book blogging.

I can’t believe how much I have missed properly book blogging during the last couple of months, but I feel as though I needed the break. I haven’t just been taking a break from blogging but I’ve also been taking an (unintentional) break from reading. I have been going through the worst reading slump ever recently and I’m not going to lie…It’s been rubbish. I have watched my TBR grow and grow, yet was unable to actually sit and finish a book for weeks. The worst thing is I have no idea why this happened, it just kind of did.

Anyway, I am relived to announce that the slump seems to be over. I partly have I See You by Clare Mackintosh to thank for this (if you haven’t read it then YOU MUST!) because it was one of the most awesome thrillers I have ever read. It was mind-blowing.

There is so much that I’m looking forward to that’s going on book-wise over the next few months too. I’m particularly excited about the release of Sophie Kinsella’s My (Not So) Perfect Life (coming our way in Feb) Robert Bryndza’s latest Erika Foster novel, Dark Water (Out now!) and Stephanie Meyer’s first adult thriller, The Chemist (released 8th November).

Plus there are all the Christmas books we have flying onto our shelves over the coming weeks, too. *excited book dance*

This summer has been a pretty crazy one for me and I have also taken a long, hard look at certain areas of my personal life. I am thrilled/extremely excited/very nervous to announce that I have a new job!  I’m going to be working as a Teaching Assistant at a primary school as of Monday. Naturally I am a bundle of nerves and excitement but working with children has been something that I’ve wanted to try my hand at for quite a while now.
I am OF COURSE still staying on at my library too – I could never fully cut the bookish ties (plus that would mean giving up my entitlement to free book requests – NEVER. GONNA’. HAPPEN.) but I’m really looking forward to a new start and some exciting opportunities.

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has stuck by me and carried on visiting my blog throughout my break. I LOVE YOU.

I also need to apologise to everyone who I haven’t been able to respond to during my  break. If you have emailed me/messaged me/tweeted me and haven’t had a response please feel free to get back in touch with me at holly.bookaholic@gmail.com or @BookaholicHolly.

Thanks for reading. BRING ON THE BOOKS.

  1. Talk about dream jobs, congratulations! And yay to The End of The Reading Slump(!), really must get going on Clare Mackintosh’s books! Good to have you back, though you’ve still manned your post very well in the last time, better than I do when I’m fully there! Congrats again:):):) (on laptop so have no emoji thingies but great stuff!)

  2. Welcome back! I’m so glad to hear your slump is over! It’s a real pain to see all of our books not received love and affection because of those slumps!
    Congratulations on the new job! I’m sure everything will go well ❤ The best of luck!
