It's been a year of no blogging + I'm pregnant!

Hello my fellow followers and bloggers! Remember me? Eleni from La Femme Readers. It's been over a year since my last post, and maybe I'm ready to come back? I miss sharing my love of reading with everyone. I built some great relationships through blogging and I am forever grateful for that.

But, over time, blogging became like a second job. I barely had time to read because of my actual full time job, let alone post on a daily basis. Back then, I was extremely passionate about reading and blogging. However, once it became a chore, I stared feeling burnt out. 

Also, I  felt like the quality of reading changed once the YA genre became more popular. Some amazing books came out of it, but also a lot of repetitive story lines. I could only read so many supernatural themes without feeling bored. 

I really want to come back, but I'll be posting sporadically. Plus, I have so many books on my shelves that I haven't touched because I felt like I had to read all the new releases. That notion will also change since I will be reviewing books from years ago. 

I really would love to hear what you've all been up to and what amazing books you've read recently that I've missed out on, so please leave comments. :)

Now, besides reading, three months ago I found out that I was pregnant! My husband and I were trying, so when it finally happened we were both ecstatic. One day I'm good, the next day I am depressed and angry. I can thank the good ol' hormones for that one! I just wanted to throw it in here, just to give an update on a major change in my life.

Thank you all for reading and I look forward to building my blog up again!

Welcome back and congratulations!!!

I've been pretty MIA this year since I had a baby in June! I'm happy for you! It's so amazing being a mom.

Andrea said...

First congratulations!
Second, I completely understand. I took a 6 month hiatus and now I only post when I feel like it, rather than feeling like I need to review something everyday. It's made book blogging more fun for me.

Congrats on the baby! That's so exciting.

I hope you can blog more in 2014 and start to enjoy it again. I'm doing review copies but I'm also trying to focus on books I already own and just be a bit more relaxed about things.

Congrats!!!

I have to say I totally agree with you. Over the past 2yrs I've felt really burnt out by all the recycled cliches that have been published in YA. I've had to take a break for several months from YA just to read something different. I have high hopes though, looking at some of the 2014 books coming out.

Congrats, Eleni! How far along are you? Fault in our Stars, huh? You don’t need pregnancy hormones to cry while watching that one. Anyway, it doesn’t matter if you go on hiatus. Take all the rest you need. You can just update us once the baby is born. =) Elli @ CentennialObgynPA.com
