Dear Lovely People,
Emily here! Surprise! I took quite the hiatus without really letting anyone know. I wasn’t really sure I was going to go full-out hiatus, myself, to be honest. But it turns out I did. I feel like all I do in update posts anymore is apologize, so I’m going to make this one short and sweet and get on with updating you on my life, etc.
To all the publishers and bloggers who I’ve missed deadlines for: I’m so sorry. Fulfilling those deadlines for reviews and posts is my #1 priority before anything else now that I’m back And to all of you amazing readers: Thanks so much for sticking with me, even through all the many hiatuses I seem to take! I love you guys and chatting with you is what keeps me going (along with my love of books of course!)
So enough with the apologies…
I applied to college!! I can’t believe that I actually did it. The time snuck up on me, and before I knew it I was an official college applicant. I’ll find out if I get in mid-December!
Senior year is going smoothly, and I’m loving the classes I’m taking. If you’re friends with me on Goodreads you’ll have seen the books I’ve been reading for my AP Lit class: So far Pride & Prejudice, The Admirable Crichton and now on to Pygmalion. Between those books and getting my portfolio ready for college apps I haven’t had time to read much (or blog, obviously).
I’m so behind in the world of YA lit! Seriously, if you’ve heard of any upcoming releases, publishing news, ARCs I should be pining for etc, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SHARE!! I’m desperate to be back in the loop!
Well, I’m officially back for good this time. I should have a review up of Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle next week. I read it a while ago now, but fingers crossed I’ll remember enough to write a good review! As soon as I finish this post I’m going to be starting These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly, which is releasing next week. It sounds very creepy and perfect for the fall/Halloween season.
Again, I’d love to hear what’s been going on in the blogging and YA community! PLEASE SHARE!
I love you all, and thanks for sticking with me!
