Oh, Hello.

Hey guys.  Remember me?  Shockingly, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.  But I have had quite a few significant life changes in the past several months (birth of my son who turned out to be very colicky for four months, job change, and a move to a small town where I know exactly no one) that have left me with very little down time.  I wish I could have posted more because I missed it, but life happens.  C'est la vie.

Anyway, I just accepted an ARC for review for the first time since my son's birth, and I'm excited to write about it.  I haven't written a book review since October though (!) so I'm a little rusty.  In order to get my analytical-review-juices flowing I thought about reviewing some of the other books I've read between now and then, but it was too hard to pick just one.  So I'll be doing some mini-reviews with only a few thoughts, because I want to record what I read and want to remember my take-aways.  

I'm not exactly saying that my maternity-leave-turned-extended-personal-leave is over, seeing as life is still a little on the crazy side (read, I haven't finished unpacking yet) but I will be making appearances here.  Mini-reviews will be coming, as well as a few other things I have up my sleeve.  I'm not sure who my readership is after taking such a long break (or if I even still have one!) but if you're there and if you want to talk books, I'm still here!

  1. Hey! Welcome back. I'm so sorry your baby was colicky. I've never experienced it but I hear it's the worst. I look forward to seeing some posts around here.

  2. Welcome back! :) Sorry to hear about your baby being so colicky. I've dealt with a colicky baby for a couple of hours and I can only imagine what it's like being the mom. Are you still in Utah? Good luck with your changes! I look forward to seeing your posts!

    1. Thanks Jenni! I am still in Utah, but just barely. :) We moved to St. George. I've continued to read your blog and wanted to comment on so many of your posts, but just haven't had the energy to comment anywhere. Forgive me. I'm hoping to comment more now that things are settling down around here.

  3. You are back! I checked a couple weeks ago to see if facebook was purposely not showing me stuff, so I am glad to see you on my feed. I need recommendations for what to read.

    And, St. George! You won't have to worry about the cold!
