Where Have You Been?


What has it been?



No. . . . . months?


I am so, so sorry.

If you haven’t gotten a chance to listen to my podcast explaining why I’ve been missing. You see, I’ve been kind of lost.

My marriage wasn’t so great (it’s hard to read HEA’s when my marriage wasn’t doing well), I wasn’t happy with my job (I resigned Monday!!!), school been kicking my ass and I homeschool my nine year old. With all of that going on reading and blogging had to take a backseat.

Not to mention there was way too much unnecessary drama in the book community that I didn’t want to hear about or deal with. Don’t get me wrong, I like to hear some gossip just as much as the next person but I don’t have the time or patience to chat about it everyday. I found myself getting too caught up in it and that’s not me.

Bottom line was that I wasn’t happy blogging and reading anymore. I was holding on to something that I couldn’t find joy in.

So I made the decision to walk away. I didn’t plan on my hiatus to go on for as long as it did, trust me. I thought a couple of weeks or a month tops but there was a peace that came stepping away from all of it for awhile. The pressure was gone. It felt good. I loved it.

With all that said…..

I really miss you guys. 

I hope you will accept my apology and let me back into your life. I just had to clear my head and get my shit together so I could come back a better person – I just hope it translates into a better blogger too.

TTYL, lovers!

Remember to follow all things messy. . .

Hey there! I'm Danielle! I just a girl who loves books. I love books so much that I talk about the stories like they are real. Who knows? Maybe, they are real to me. I do love the book world, it's way better than reality. . .sometimes. . .because. . .I'm also a proud mama bear, wife, and mother!

  1. Hi Dani! Welcome back. I hope things with your hubs are better now because a job is “just” a job but marriage … it affects us so much more!

    1. Hey there Sophie! I’ve missed you. Yes, my marriage is doing better. It was touch and go for a moment but I guess that’s what marriage is. We’re getting through it…together ☺️
