Review: You Were Here by Cori McCarthy.

you-were-hereFollowing my previous blog post, I have a little catching up to do in terms of book reviews. Please forgive me because a few of my upcoming reviews may be a little brief compared to the usual ones I post because they have not all been written immediately after finishing the book like I’ve done in the past.

Today’s book review is on You Were Here* by Cori McCarthy. Due to it being nearly two months ago that I actually read this book, I’ve decided that it would be more beneficial for you if I pasted the overview of this book from Goodreads, rather than writing my own:

I’m Still Here…

Hi All,

It’s been quite a while since I sat down and wrote a proper blog post. It’s roughly been two months, although in between there have been a few book reviews. I had actually intended to write more book reviews, but I’ve been more interested in picking up my next book lately than writing full reviews. Not only that, but I haven’t exactly read anything that’s blown me away, therefore I didn’t want the only posts appearing on my blog to just be books I feel a bit meh about.

The shortage of blog posts these past couple of months is due to multiple reasons. Firstly, I’ve been somewhat lacking in motivation. I’ve wanted to write and had so many ideas for blog posts that I want to do, but I have just had no energy to sit down and type them out. Secondly, there’s time. I work full-time and while I never used to struggle with working 35 hours a week and posting loads, I am now. I don’t know if it’s just the later hours, or the fact I’m just more tired after work, but it doesn’t leave enough time and energy for blogging.

My third reason fits a little with the last one because I just don’t feel like I have time for everything. I want to read loads,  I like to read 1-2 books per week, but I feel that isn’t achievable if I want to regularly blog as well. So I suppose, I’ve been trying to stock up on books a lot these past two months so that I can focus more time into the blog knowing that I will have lots of books ready to write about.

I know I don’t exactly owe an explanation for my absence, but it helps me to be able to say why I haven’t been blogging, because I still do love it. I’m going to try and be more active, especially when I have so much I want to post. I went on holiday last week to Barcelona, so I’d love to share my adventures there with you all, plus I do have quite a few books to share and there are so many beauty products that I’ve just been waiting to rave about to you all once I get the chance.

Please do keep an eye out for more posts – beauty ones, book ones, and even expect to see more travel ones this year – and I will try my best to get back into a nice routine because I miss this.

I hope you have all been well and I hope to be able to interact more with everyone again.
