Blog Revamp + Life Update

by - 5:10 PM

Hello everyone! There's no review today or anything, I just wanted to catch everyone up. I'm not even sure if anyone reads this blog anymore or what, but I plan on getting back into it. I completed the semester from hell, turned 21, reached my goal of 100 books in 2015 all since I've posted last. I'm not going to say I've been living life as an excuse for not reviewing books... that's so cheap and a really bad excuse especially because I want this blog to go places. I just haven't had the time to really put any significant amount of effort in. This semester will be so much better, though. I just know it. And I really plan on putting a lot more effort into this blog. I want to purchase an official domain and I want to revamp the blog--new layout, new everything! I plan on getting everything settled by January 15th, so bear with me.

I still plan on posting reviews and such until I get everything in order, but I just wanted to post something to let everyone know what was going on. I kind of took a break from everything "academic" after I finished my 100th book because I needed a breather. This past semester was literally terrible for me. I lost a lot of weight due to stress and my GPA dropped dramatically and I needed to just calm down and get back to my normal happy self after the semester ended. Plus, with the holidays and me turning 21, I was barely sober enough to read a book! There are so many books I'm ready for this year, though. I cannot wait to see what journeys I go on this year. 2015 was an amazing year for me in regards to books. I'm hoping 2016 is even better.

I'm not doing a reading goal, mainly because I hate feeling like I NEED to read. Reading has always been an escape for me and I don't want to ruin that by forcing myself to reach goals. I've done reading goals the past two years and while they were fun, I don't want to ever ruin myself for reading.

Yeah, that's basically all I have to say, though! Leave in the comments some posts you'd like to see or some books you'd like me to review. I'll be going book shopping in the near future! And be on the lookout for a brand new look for Cosmic Reads on January 15th!

Happy reading!
