It's been great but it's time to go...

Well, this has been a long time coming. I've mentioned it more than once on PPR but for more than a year now I haven't been able to shake off the "blah" feeling I've had about blogging. I've thought about this long and hard and I've decided that it's time to stop blogging.

I say stop, not quit because quitting is permanent. I'm not making any promises about coming back but...I want to leave the door open if I decide to change my mind later on. I still intend on reading other people's blogs, commenting and lurking about hehe. The only difference is that I won't be updating my own blog. I'll still be active on my twitter and my tumblr so if you're around, feel free to follow me on both :)

I also want to say thank you to everyone who's read my blog, commented on my posts, retweeted or linked my blog to theirs, etc. I'm so grateful to each and every one of you who's ever interacted with me through this blog. I cannot express my gratitude enough. I would also like to thank everyone from the publishing world who's reached out to me in the past to participate in blog tours, giveaways and for allowing me the chance to review books before (and right after!) their release date. Every time an invite was issued my way, I would always be amazed and humbled.

Through Pirate Penguin's Reads, I've learned so much about the publishing industry, the (not so secret anymore) world of writers/authors and how reviewers, book sellers and librarians make a huge impact in the future of literacy. I don't think I've mentioned this but this blog has also indirectly lead me to my new career in librarianship. So as I move forward in my career path, I have this blog (and you, my beautiful readers) to thank for giving me all the knowledge I have about the book world.

I've also made some really awesome friends through Pirate Penguin's Reads. Particular shout outs to Alex and my lady YAckers. :)

So that's it, you guys. I didn't mean to write so much but it came pouring out and here it is. Thank you for sticking with me for these six years. I'll see you around ♥
