Sorry all. I decided to take a break from blog tours and arcs. I was signing up for so many that I couldn't keep up. Lesson learned. Now I will only sign up for the one I really want to read. I will read more from my TBR that I neglected to far too long. Now why I have posted any reviews yet. I am reading out of order. For example, next month is Black History month and Valentine's day (on the 14th) so I'm reading for posts for that month. In Feb I will read post for March and so on. That way there will always be content on the blog. I'm so excited. I think this method is a winner. Until next time Happy Reading!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!
So today is Jan 1st 2015. Wow, how time flies. Not much is going to change on the blog. What I have learned though, is that I have to cut down the number of book tours that I participate in. It was just too much to keep up with at one point. So I will still do them just not as many. I, of course, will have an impossibly large list of reading challenges I have joined. So that is it for now. Happy New Year and Happy Reading!
