There were many factors in my decision to leave, and after weighing the pros and cons it seems this is the best choice for me at this time.

When I started this blog I had so many ideas and felt very positive about interviewing authors and readers, writing book reviews, and sharing old books. Having a book blog felt rewarding.

PS, I Love You: A Novel

by Cecelia Ahern


From Goodreads:

Everyone needs a guardian angel. Some people wait their whole lives to find their soul mates. But not Holly and Gerry.
