Not only do I want to talk about my love for books but I want to talk about my music, my endeavors and the experiences I’m going through in my mid-20s feeling as though I’m only just beginning my journey into adulthood. Our dream right now, my boyfriend and I, is to one day build our own dream house. Nothing big as we simply want a nice cottage-style home with a big enough yard. This is definitely going to be a long ways away for sure but we are currently looking for our starter home! It’s a new and fresh beginning for us as we will be leaving apartment life and learning more about houses and saving money (which will be really tough according to my ever-growing TBR list).
This is what I’d like to write about. I want to share my excitement, my fears, my hopes and even my downward spirals because life is full of wrong or right turns and good or not-so-great choices. What we go through allows us to learn and grow and being that I can’t seem to stick to one topic specifically, I’ve decided I’m going to start working on a lifestyle blog. A blog where I could still bring up my obsession for books, the status of my no-idea-when-I-will-finish-but-I’m-still-super-excited-about-it album and my overall experiences as I learn how to adult. With this in mind, I’m going to be taking an indefinite break from this blog. I’m not saying that I’m quitting it altogether as I might feel a lightning bolt of inspiration and a need to come back and be a book-blogger. This isn’t the end of Paperback Darling. I’d like to think of it more in terms of under construction. I can’t wait for you guys to see the new direction I have in mind for this blog!
Before I go on my break, I still have 8 more reviews to post so I won’t be leaving just yet. I’ve been asked to review some books for some amazing people and it’s not like me to walk away. When I agree to something, I follow through and I look forward to sharing my thoughts on these books with all of you!
These are the books I will be reviewing before my break:
- First Crush, Last Love by Elizabeth McKenna
- Exactly Like You by Lori Sizemore
- The Flawed Ones by Jay Chirino
- Like Broken China by J.D. Thompson
- Fires by Tom Ward
- The Simple Soul of Susan by Noel Branham
- Rise to Hope by A.J. Flowers
- You Dear Sweet Man by Thomas Neviaser
My Facebook page will still be used regularly with bookish news and mini book hauls. I will also be using that page and this blog later on when my lifestyle blog is ready for anyone who would like to check it out!
Until my next review!
