I’ll be back very soon! (and a thank you)

Hi friends!

Just letting you know that I haven’t completely disappeared! I just haven’t had the time to create any blog posts because things are a little busy with uni deadlines right now 😦 but I’ll be back next week!

And I also wanted to say a really big thank you to the people who took the time to do my #bookstagram survey. It’s helped me out massively, and now I need to go and write my report on my findings.

Talk soon!

The Future of My Blog (an update and stuff)

Hi everyone!

I’ve wanted to make this post for a while, but I’m a pretty private person and so writing posts like this is hard for me. But as more time goes on I feel this increasing, self-inflicted pressure to be honest on my blog.

It’s really not that deep, but basically my tastes in fiction have shifted from new adult to manga and graphic novels. And the reason for that is linked a little bit to my sexuality (which I’d really rather keep private). But if you’ve read NA you know there’s typically a lot of sex in them and I hate reading sex scenes now, so maybe you can work out what I’m hinting at from that.

Of course, I love romance reads so so much! That hasn’t changed in all the time I’ve been a reader. And I do have a few NA reads I’m still looking forward to reading. But for the most part, I’m done reviewing NA fiction on this blog. And instead I’ll be reviewing graphic novels, manga, and adult romance books that aren’t so sex-heavy.

I don’t really know where this love of graphic novels has come from recently. It’s loads of fun and so that’s what I’m mostly doing now in terms of reading and reviewing. But that’s the only change on my blog so it’s not really a big deal. I just don’t want people following me thinking I’m a NA reviewer when I’m not really anymore lol.
