Well, I'm back...!

Well, that was an unexpected break from blogging.

The summer was fairly hectic. Not only did I have a broken foot, but my work schedule was back and forth. I had a bunch of work time, then a bunch of time off so things were fairly hectic. Not only that, but I got into a nasty reading slump that is still going.

Since then, I've been just throwing myself into work. I'm actually on a week long break right now and I'm so thankful for that. I needed it because I was getting burned out, exhausted and too sick too often (thanks immune system) but I do have to admit that I miss the work kids like crazy.

Things are going fairly well here and I'm happier than I have been in a long time. Things are finally starting to look up, I've got a special someone and I'm happy. Things are working out, things are comfortable and well, I'm happy.

The only downside is one of our family pets passed away suddenly today. I am so crushed that she is gone. She had two seizures and passed away. We found out that it is more than likely a brain tumor. Very sudden, very unexpected.

Thanksgiving plans are going to be on Saturday - a big traditional dinner with the family. Tomorrow we are going to eat meatballs and relax.

That being said, I am looking for some advice and some more followers.

Here are some fun questions to get things rolling, I'm really looking forward to seeing your answers! 

1) How do you get out of a nasty reading slump? Any tips? Tricks? Ideas?
2) What are the top five books you've read in 2012?
3) What are you currently reading?



    1) I did a whole post about this that's going live on the blog on Friday! :D But I usually try to read something totally different; if I've been reading a lot of YA, I'll read chick lit for awhile/etc.

    2) I think you know this, since I've talked you to death about them, but: Shadow and Bone, Hemlock, Send Me A Sign, Time Between Us, and Defiance.

    3) Hysteria by Megan Miranda. You read Fracture I think? This one is so good too, so far! I'm in a bit of a slump too. *grumble*

    1. I took forever, but I'm here?! So did not think it would take this long, but as you know, things have been hectic.

      1) YAY! I'll have to make sure to check it out. My problem is that I just can't focus on anything right now, no matter how different it is. I have SO MANY books that I want to read, have stacked up and nothing works. Lame.

      2) And yes! I've only read one of those, but I'll get to the others as soon as I can. Especially since I'm only working right now, I really should have read about fifty million more books already.

      3) I did read Fracture. I didn't know Hysteria was out (is it out?) but I remember we talked about the fact that it was coming up/happening.
