August Wrap-Up

I definitely feel a little better after taking the month off from my blog. I've decided that I'll probably be coming back mid-way through September. Or maybe at the end of September. It just depends because I have loved not stressing about getting things posted. Though I will be doing a few of the Top Ten Tuesday memes before I 'officially' come back because there are some that sound too fun to pass up.

I am excited for getting back to blogging, but I want to make sure I'm ready and not just coming back because I think I'm 'supposed' to. (I have a post on that coming later, when I'm back.)

What I've been reading…
Yay! Lookit me, I've actually been reading. Not a lot, but this is progress.

A Tyranny of Petticoats by Various Authors - **** (stay tuned for the review!)
Dogs: Bullets & Carnage Vol. 4 by Shirow Miwa - ****

Dogs: Bullets & Carnage Vol. 5 by Shirow Miwa - ****

In a House Made of Bones and Teeth by Alyxandra Harvey - ***
Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell - ***** (stay tuned for a review!)

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard - * (stay tuned for review!)
What I've been watching…

I rewatched season one of The Flash - and that was even more fun the second time around. I also rewatched volume one (which is the first two series) of Primeval and it was really good. I actually liked it more the second time. And I rewatched Power Rangers Jungle Fury. Nothing else to really say because there is totally a reason it's still my favorite season.

I watched season four of Falling Skies. It was really good. I am looking forward to the fifth and final season, but the show…I think the first two seasons were the best.

I don't usually talk about movies, but I've got to make special mention of a stellar movie I watched this month. Pacific Rim. Honestly, that movie is just so incredibly, totally awesome. I really don't know what took me so long to finally watch it. Because I loved it.

So, that's been my month. I'm still taking my time getting back to blogging, but I'm excited to get back - so that's a good sign.

August Hiatus

I've been thinking about this for awhile now - most of last month - and as much as I love this blog, I think I need some time off.

Nearly everything I post last month had been scheduled since June or before and I believe I haven't replied to any of my comments since at least the first of July. I also haven't been reading anything - unless you count fanfic.

So, for the entire month of August, I am going on hiatus. I might manage a few posts, like Top Ten Tuesdays, and I definitely want to still have my wrap-up at the end of the month.

I'm going to use this time both to recharge my batteries and to decide, exactly, what I want to do with my blog going forward, because lately it feels like I've only been posting because it's expected of me.

Hopefully by the end of the month, I will be fully back, but if not, I might be extending this hiatus to take in most or all of September.

I want to thank you guys for being such awesome readers and for being patient with me!
