mid-year book freak out tag + hiatus announcement

Hello and welcome! Today I’m super excited to do the mid-year book freak out tag. I have no idea where this tag originated so sadly, I cannot credit anyone, but it’s something a lot of book bloggers do in late June and is a fun way to talk about the books you’ve read that year. (You can read my 2019 post here and my 2020 one here… they’re very cringy but that’s okay, it’s fun to look back and see how far I’ve come.)

Before we get to that, though, a quick announcement (which is literally in the title of the post): I’m taking a hiatus from blogging.

Actually, I kind of have been for most of the past few months anyway 🤷🏽‍♀️ I’ve been writing, and reading, and working, and prepping for college, and I haven’t had the time or motivation to blog. And, unfortunately, I don’t see myself finding either in the near future.

I don’t know how long I’ll be gone — I could return to blogging consistently this fall, or maybe it won’t be until January, or even next summer. HOWEVER. This does not mean I’m completely disappearing! I’m still going to be reading other people’s posts, and I will likely pop in here from time to time.

Basically, I’m just officially explaining what’s already going on 😌 I’ll be blogging randomly, so don’t expect to hear from me much on WordPress, but I’m not leaving and I still love it.

If you want more consistent content/updates from me, you have two options:

  • my email list! I send out monthly life/reading/writing updates. It’s a ton of fun and I’d love to see you there!
  • my Instagram! I just joined this platform and am still not sure what, exactly, I am doing, but expect occasional bookish/authorly posts and also very random stories.

Onward to the blog post!

travels in Kentucky // Answers in Genesis + Mammoth Cave + more!

Hey, friends! As you probably already realized from my last post, I have returned from vacation. I spent 10 days traveling in Kentucky, and after a 3-day break, some friends came over to my house for 3 more days. But now I’m back, and I’m here to tell you about my vacation.

I’m going to write this post sort of like a travel journal, with some pictures included. I don’t remember exactly how everything happened, but I’ll do my best (:Read More »
