Where is Veronica? (Editor News)

Well hello my lovely readers. I hope you are all having a wonderful day.

blJcJsQKQjGARx7rLGQg_Whale Hello

I just wanted to catch everybody up on why I have been MIA these past few months and more so this month. I know some of you have noticed that Liz has been reviewing books like crazy and you are sitting there wondering… where did Veronica go? It is time I updated you on my crazy life.

These past few months have been hectic to say the least. I am working full-time, going to school, and getting ready to move again. Not sure if ya’ll remember I moved around this same time last year. And yes, I am moving again so soon. Thankfully I’ve found a new place to live, but because my apartment lease ends at the end of this month, I’ve been having to move stuff into storage as I am downsizing. My weekends have been full with packing, doing homework, and my daughter duties (gotta help out my momma).

I did find time to go to YALLWEST at the beginning of this month, but I have yet to make the post. This was my second year attending and it was wonderful. I wish I could have stayed in Santa Monica longer, but alas the real world waited for me.

This past weekend I was also out of town because I had to visit my grandparents. They live about 4 hours away so that alone constitutes a two-day trip. Weekend who? What’s a weekend?

The good news is that I will be done with my certification by the end of this month and I will be moving over Memorial day weekend, so I will soon find some peace and will be able to read again. Well, I am reading, but not necessarily for pleasure at the moment.

I will assure you that soon, the blog will go back to normal and you will all be seeing more of me again. There are also some exciting new features that will be coming to the blog and we have already started revamping the blog as well so it is easier for you guys to find older reviews. So many new things coming your way!

I want to thank everyone for sticking with us. We appreciate all of your comments, likes, views, and all of the love and support you show us. We couldn’t have asked for a better readership.

And as I close this out, I want to say I am very thankful for Liz, my co-blogger. In my times of need, she has been my rock and kept this blog going. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Update of the Blog (and my life)

So…. I said I was making a comeback right? Well… life got in the way. AGAIN. The move was more time-consuming than I had imagined. Unpacking twelve boxes of books (and that’s not counting the school books I’ve collected over the years and my mom’s reference books) was very time-consuming and well unpacking the rest of the house too. (I haven’t been able to organize my shelves yet, I just threw the books on them and it makes me sad. My babies are misplaced in the incorrect order. *cries*)

My cousin came over last weekend and she brought her three little munchkins with her. I love them, but they did not let us get any reading done. (I got her into reading the Divergent trilogy and she’s hooked. She’s gonna hate me when she finishes Allegiant though…) So another weekend without reading a book. Hopefully this weekend (I have nothing planned) I will be able to get some reading done and actually finish a book. I’m in the middle of 4 right now. (I know, I know, shame on me!)

I do promise I will start posting more often. My goal is twice a week. At least a review and a meme (most likely Top Ten Tuesday).

To those who are still following me, thank you for continuing to follow me even though I haven’t posted new content in several weeks. For the new followers I’ve miraculously obtained, thank you for following me even though my posts are scattered at best right now.

Hope you’re all having a great week and have a wonderful weekend!

Life + Book Blogging = Cannot Compute

I’ve been meaning to talk about this for a while. I feel really bad that I haven’t been able to post a lot of reviews and such on this blog for the past couple of weeks. Ever since I started my new job in February at a non-profit organization my life has been CRAZY. Working part-time (or full-time some weeks), and going to school half time leaves me with little time, and the little time that I do have, I use it to sleep or mindlessly watch youtube videos (cause I canceled netflix. I KNOW. I regret it now).

I have tried to read and at times I fail because I’m just too exhausted to concentrate on the story unfolding before me. The few books I have read, I don’t have enough to say about the book to justify a review. I’m finally catching up on my ARCs though (sort of).

All of this is to say please bear with me until the end of May. After May school is over and while I will be working full-time, I no longer have to worry about going to my night classes, doing homework, and all that school shenanigans.

I will be back! I promise! I just have to figure out this life stuff first and I’m all yours!

I will be posting stuff while I’m still in school, it’s just going to be all over the place. No set schedule at all. 🙂

Sunday Updates

Why We Are Here

Hello everyone, Veronica here. Today’s post will be one of updates, and life rambles.

The end of September and most of October has been hard for both Anjie and I. It has been difficult to blog and we apologize for the inactivity of it all.

The Good Stuff

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon with my new lovely friend Kayla (who is The Thousand Lives) and she let me borrow some books which I am very excited to read!

Also, you guys I finally have a FULL TIME JOB. Yes!! I am super excited! I start at the end of this month so it will be great! I’m also moving to a new place at the end of this month so many new life changes are happening… All at once! I’m so happy that it is all coming together. I can feel peace again. PTL!

Also, before I knew I was moving and that I got the job, I had signed up for NANOWRIMO so… November is going to be crazy!

What To Expect

Even though all of this good craziness is happening, I will be reading a lot this coming week in preparation for my future hectic schedule. The rest of October you’re going to see a lot of activity on this blog which may lead you to think I am not sleeping. (I assure you, I will be. ;] )

I will post likely queue some posts for the future as well.

That is all I have for this update and I hope you all have a lovely Sunday!

– Veronica
