A Hiatus? :(

So you may have noticed that I really haven't been around much or posting something everyday like I used to and I feel like I owe everyone an apology and an explanation.

The truth is, I've been extremely busy lately and so, I have come to a final decision.

I'm going to be taking a hiatus.



Reason being, it's because life is busy. I can't really keep up the school work, blogging and in addition to the three things listed above, I still have a HUGE stack of books from review requests from January
that I have yet not read. Not to mention that I haven't even read Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead yet or finished Asunder by Jodi Meadows OR even STARTED on City of Lost Souls. And I bought those books in January as well. I know this shouldn't even be POSSIBLE, as a TMI 'fan'. I feel like I'm not one anymore because of it anymore. Blog, why are you doing this to me?


During my hiatus, I will be redesigning Fictionally Obsessed. I know that I've redesigned the blog 4 times already and I know that I haven't been able to make up my mind. It's just that I have decided to make my blog less feminine and more gender neutral.

I feel like it's all too much for me at a time, and though I still freaking love blogging and reading, I'm going to be taking a break. Meaning that I will still be checking the blog for comments daily and posting Feature Fridays and reviews, but I just won't be blogging and posting something everyday like I did before. I still have tons of ideas that have been bouncing in my head and a new original feature called Midnight Thoughts I will be introducing when I get back, so I hope that you'll stay will me even though I won't be posting as much.

And finally, I'm sorry. I really should have been interacting with you guys more and commenting your blogs, and it feels like I'm just not there. I hope you'll understand my decision and give me time to return to my old blogging obsessed self. I don't even know if I ever will be able to return to that stage ever again.

  4. Breaks are healthy, especially when you have so much else on your plate. Congrats on your blog design service! I have three events that I'm running this summer, and I'll probably contact you about making their banners.

    Thank you for following my blog today, by the way. :)
