Hello there! It’s been a bit over two months since I posted anything here and I just can’t believe it. I’ve never gone that long without posting and I’m not sure how the time slipped away so quickly. But it did and I’ll tell you part of the reason why I haven’t been around. On June 4 I’m giving a presentation at my library called “Sizzlin’ Summer Reads”. One of my colleagues and I have been reading galleys like mad – all books that will be published in June, July and August – so that we can do short booktalks for the patrons who attend to help them find fantastic books to read this summer. I’ve read some things that I normally wouldn’t have ( Dark Matter, All the Missing Girls) and some books that were right up my alley (The Muse, The Wicked Boy) and some things that were disappointing (I won’t mention names). But since all of the books are not currently available I’ve felt conflicted about blogging about them – so I’ve just let the blog slowly slide from my mind until today when I realized that I really miss this space and all of my blogging friends. And since I’ve now done all the reading I’m going to do for the presentation and have moved on to the process of putting my notes together I’m looking forward to returning to the blog and to reading some Persephones I’ve had waiting in line for months now. I’m also eager to visit all of your blogs to see what you’ve been up to! It’s good to be back.
