Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas
Well hello to all of my loyal readers. All three of you. I have to admit I have been pretty lax in my blog posts recently and even more so on my reading. I am in the worst reading funk since my son was born. I have been so busy and preoccupied that all the free time I have is reserved for trying to catch up on sleep or spending time with my wife and kiddos. They grow up so fast and this is thee busiest time of year for us with all the family to see.
I wanted to write one final post for 2016. I have decided that this is the beginning of a break for me. Yes I know I have been on a break on and off for awhile recently but I need to step back. I'm going to hopefully get back into reading and take this time to try and stock pile some reviews so I can get ahead of the game at my new slower reading pace. There are so many books I have on my to read list and so many I can't wait to read. I just haven't had the drive to pick one up. I wanted to be through the Dark Tower series by the time the movie came out and I'm not sure that is going to happen. I have been trying to read Trigger Mortis the new James Bond novel (when I say new it has been out for at least a year) for 8 months now. I just can't seem to be able to get more than 15 min at a time to read and that's on the weekend.
It has been a great year and there is so much more to come in this last little bit left. I will get back to posting after the first of the year because I love the year in review posts and goals for the next year. I think that is what I need to try and get me back into posting. Now I just need to get excited to pick a book. Right now I blame Metallica for having an amazing new album I have been waiting 8 years for and Hardwire.. to Self-Destruct is the best metal album I have heard in a long time. Ok,, I'm off my music review soap box, but seriously, this is the best pre-order I have made in a long time and i have been listening to it everyday since it came out on November 18.
I have some ideas for next year and my blog and I hope to actually follow through this time. I hope you all forgive my absence and I look forward to posting again and hope you all have a great Holiday and Merry Christmas. I will say I wanted to star a Christmas were I reviewed my favorite Christmas mvies like I do for Halloween but I don't have the energy this year. Maybe next year will be my first annual Christmas week. Good luck with you holidays and a Happy Happy New Year.
