Exactly 3 years ago I published my first review to The Leaning Tower of Tomes, Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. Since then, my reading habits grew enormously and this blog became a successful, happy little place of mine on the internet. I read the most I’ve ever reading during a period of time and I connected with super cool, real people all over the world. I read many books outside my initial comfort zone of YA, expanding into graphic novels and adult thrillers. From blogging I’ve learned skills I currently use at various jobs and I feel comfortable sharing my opinions and writing publicly. The past three years have been amazing.
I have decided to step away from book blogging for the time being. I’m about to go to university with a maxed-out schedule, and I really haven’t been reading much anyway. (*cough* K-dramas *cough*) This year marked a lot of big, new changes in my life, all of which I’m happy about, but that definitely were very time-consuming and stressful. Reading sort of fell to the wayside and I still haven’t thrusted myself back into the vigor of consuming a book every few days.
I want to thank everyone who visited The Leaning Tower of Tomes and whom I communicated with about bookish things. I would not have continued talking about my reading endeavors if no one had been around to converse with me, and I am super grateful that my three-year experience was fantastic. If you ever stopped by this blog, thanks, I’m glad you came and I hope you liked what you saw.
I’ll be leaving the blog up indefinitely with all of its reviews and posts for everyone to peruse. Who knows, maybe I’ll feel inspired to take up blogging again. I put a lot of work into this site and I’m proud of it. But I’m not disappearing forever! I’m still on Goodreads and will forever be recording the books I read and want to read, so feel free to say hi.
Happy three-year blogging anniversary to me. 🙂
Farewell for now!
