Hey all, wanted to post a little explanation about why the blog has been so quiet lately. I've picked up a lot of new followers lately and yet my post count has dropped pretty seriously, which isn't cool, I know. Its for a combination of reasons, one being I've read quite a few 2011 ARC's lately, and I'd rather wait until closer to release dates to post them, so I've had less in the way of new reviews to share, and when I'm not sharing many reviews, I don't take part in as many meme posts. I like meme's, they're fun and a cool way to see what others are reading/getting/think whatever, but they are something that should be strictly in addition to regular blog content.

The other reason is that I've been really ill lately. If you've been following me a while, you'll probably know I've got CFS/ME. To cut a long story short, it means exhaustion rules my life, along with muscle pains, headaches and brain fog, all of which stop me reading as much as I'd like, and lately have seriously slowed my reading pace down. All those things also make blogging hard for the same reasons. I know the cause for this recent downturn and it's one that truly sucks for me. I've spent the past week unable to leave the house, and not particularly caring because I couldn't face the idea of leaving either. That's not like me, normally I get cabin fever within a couple days, despite my body telling me it's not up to going out. Been a very, very bad week. The worst I've had in a very long time.

So between the two, I've been really quiet on here. I apologise for that, I wish like hell it was different, but it's something I can't help. I hope you'll all bare with me, I will get through this bad patch and reading/blogging pace will pick up again soon, because I love sharing what I'm reading and interacting with the various people I meet on here. For those who are sticking with me, don't forget my 100 Followers giveaway currently going on. Just a week left to enter now!
