Bookish Memes


Update April 29, 2015 – 

Both, Top Ten Tuesday and Exploring My Bookshelves, are weekly memes that I’ve been participating in (technically one weekly and one monthly since I have adapted Exploring My Bookshelves as a monthly meme where I post on the last Friday of the month instead) for a couple of months.

There’s never been a hard and fast rule that book bloggers must be committed to every T10T post anyway, but ever since I started them I felt obligated to post them every week. And I know two memes doesn’t seem like a lot, but these posts take me the longest to create. Lately because of school and work, I think I’m unable to keep up with the quality of these future posts, so I’ve decided to take a semi-hiatus from Top Ten Tuesday.

Another big reason why I’ve decided to take a break from T10T is because my posts have become quite repetitive in terms of content. I feel like I always mention City of Bones, East of Eden, etc. And lately, the predetermined topics aren’t really applicable to me like “Books I’ll Never Read,” I’m a reader that doesn’t limit herself in terms of books (well, except for 50 Shades. I’ll never read that.)

Anyway, I have always appreciated the discussions from T10T, so thank you all for always tuning in. I’m sure every once and a while I’ll make a T10T post, but for now I need this break. Exploring My Bookshelves is only a monthly feature for me anyway, so I’ll continue those religiously. Thanks for sticking to end of this message.

Love y’all (sweet reader + the book blogger community + blogosphere),


P.S. Of course I know I’m not the center of attention, so you guys may not even notice the absence of these posts. Except for those that have, I hope this page was somewhat informative and explained my break. I also hope you all have a fantastic and fun summer wherever you live! 😀

    Breaks are always good! I’m new to Top Ten Tuesday, and I am noticing that the topics seem to overlap. (For instance, Top ten authors, and then a few weeks later top ten authors you’d like to meet.)

    I had the same thoughts as you with the TTT. They’re fun but they take sooo much time! Between thinking up the list and then formatting the post (at least for me), it takes me just as long to create them as it does to create a review post. So I don’t blame you 😉 I only schedule one post a month for TTT, maybe two if there is a really, really good topic.
    Enjoy your break!

    I think the quality of your writing will support any evolution of your blog. Nothing wrong with breaks or just changing things up to explore the boundaries of your potential and keeping things fresh. I look forward to what you bring to your blog.

    It’s always good to take a break from blogging because it can start feeling like chore and you should never feel that way about a hobby. Also it’s Summer and you want to be outside rather than on your computer :). So it’s good to take in some fresh air and leave technology once in a while. Don’t worry I feel the same way about TTT. I don’t participate every week or even every month because I often repeat the same list of books over and over again. And coming back from a break gives you a fresh perspective :). Take Care Summer!!
