A quiet month on the blog! I managed to post a few times, taking part in PC Cast’s Moon Chosen blog tour, talking about Goodread’s ‘Best Books of 2016’, and taking part in the RAINBOW Blog Challenge hosted by a bunch of different hosts. I didn’t get much reading done – well, no, that’s not true, I DID get some reading done, and I enjoyed it, but I didn’t finish many books.
That’s because apart from this project I’m doing that takes me away from reading, Pokemon Sun & Moon was released in November, and I’m all about the #TeamLitten.
I think December will probably be another quiet one to be honest! I’m basically running this blog by myself again, and I’ve decided I’m going to go back to being The Moonlight Library in the next month when this Young Adult at Heart domain name expires. Don’t worry, it’s just the url that will change so if you already follow me you’ll be brought along for the ride, but I’ll let you know about the switch, too.
Basically Tanieka and I have decided our partnership isn’t working out. It’s nothing to do with fighting or whatever, just that Tanieka is focusing more on Instagram (where she has like a million followers, go her!) and BookTube, whereas I’m more traditionally still writing reviews. You know, she’s putting her beautiful face out there and I won’t even use a real picture of myself or tell you my real name.
So unfortunately we will be parting ways soon, which is sad, because I still love her and I love watching her videos but she needs room to spread her wings and grow and this grumpy old lady isn’t going to hold her back!
