Pardon my absence!

I just realized how long it has been since I updated my blog! I'm sure I've lost any readers I have by now...

My reading is going pretty slow right now, and I guess that's part of the problem. I finished Crescent by Diana Abu-Jaber a couple of weeks ago and just loved it so much. Now it's been so long, and I don't even know how to review it. So I'll sum it up with what I tweeted on Twitter when I finished it: "It was so good I hugged it when I finished!"

Since then, I also finished The Golden Bull by Marjorie Cowley, an ARC I picked up at TLA last year. I enjoyed it and gave it 3.5 stars in LibraryThing. It wasn't terribly memorable, though, I'm sorry to say, a few weeks later.

I attempted to read The Last Summer (of You and Me) by Ann Brashares, and I had high expectations after the Traveling Pants series. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into it and returned it to the library.

Now I'm reading Tamar by Mal Peet, and while it is a pretty slow read, I am enjoying it and will finish it before moving on to something else.

I'm woefully behind on my book blog reading, too, but I am slowly catching up. Not doing any challenges right now; it's just me and crazy long book lists!

Nope, you haven't :P And I know the so-good-I-want-to-hug-it feeling well, hehehe.

I'm still here! *waves* I've already had a "hugger" book this year - The School of Essential Ingredients - so I know where you're coming from!

Life happens and sometimes you can't get around to the blog! You've still got your readers :)

I was disappointed with Last Summer (of You and Me) too. Anyway, have fun with your crazy book list and hope you've got some good books going on.

Don't worry about it. It happens to all of us. We're still here!!
