You'd probably guessed that though, right? The tumbleweed has most likely given it away. 

2017 has been an interesting one, and I'm sure that it's in a good way either. Everything has come with a huge dose of stress and drama and I've found blogging to be at the bottom of my list - reading, too.

YA isn't pushing my buttons, I can't settle down with a classic and my reliable adult rom coms aren't doing it for me. That's a total red signal for me. It's time to take a breather. 

But in the last few days I have found something that makes me want to read - adult paranormal romance. I've dabbled in the genre before, but I seem to be going full throttle at the moment and it's glorious. Reading something with no other agenda than reading for fun. I don't have to worry about writing a review, release dates, PRs or it being something I have to read for work - I can just binge and enjoy. 

So I'm taking a blogging break until I rediscover why I'm here and my love of reading. It could be a week, or it could be two months. I just hope you'll stick with me. 

And I can always be found on Twitter (@sophie_waters) and Instagram (@solittletimeforbooks).

  1. I think we all need to take a break sometimes & switching genres is a brilliant want to break a reading slump. Some PNR recs for you: anything by Nalini Singh, Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews, Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed, Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunters, Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark. If you fancy dipping a toe into UF (not so romance focused - although it's definitely an element - but lots of action, brilliant world building & tends to follow one main character for a whole series) then Ilona Andrew's Kate Daniels and Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson World are my favourites. I can give you loads more suggestions though so just hit me up on Goodreads LOL.

    Enjoy your blogging break, it'll still be here when you're ready to come back to it! I hope real life calms down soon though & that you're at least able to beat the reading slump

  2. Hopefully a break is just what you need, it's never good when blogging and/or reading feels like a chore. At least you've found something you enjoy reading, adult paranormal are always fun to beat a slump, I think :)
