Hello everyone!

I'm back and this time it's to stay. I'm well aware that over the past year or so my blogging has become rather sporadic. Once or twice I've stepped back, returned saying I'm gonna do better, and then the cycle happens again. I'll be honest, mental health has had a lot to do with this. That said, and while I still struggle with this thing that affects so many of us silently, I've found my peace. I recently moved away to London to begin my MA in Publishing, to start my hopefully life long dream, and I have to say it's been a treat. I absolutely adore living in the capital, being so close to everything that I love so dearly. I've found people like me, people who squee and cry over beautiful covers, well crafted stories and loveable characters. I've joined a writing club, and while I'm only attending my first session today, I have to say I'm very excited. I've joined a book club, though that's not yet scheduled. I've come out of my shell a lot, and for those reasons I've decided to come back to blogging with a new zeal. I mentioned last time not putting pressure on myself, remembering that this is only a hobby, and that's still true. My focus has to be on my MA, on finding a part time job to earn money, on grabbing work experience and volunteering opportunities. I still love blogging though, it's part of me and part of my dream as much as reading and hopefully getting that first coveted job is. I don't want to just let it go. So what I'm going to do is have a new, lighter schedule. Instead of trying to post so much content every week, I'm going to be more lenient. That way, hopefully, I won't get stressed, won't fall behind, won't let my anxiety take over, and the quality will be a lot better for it. I hope you'll all stick with me.

My posts will therefore be;

Monday - Bi-weekly Cover Spotlight Monday, starting next week.
Tuesday - Top Ten Tuesday every week, unless the topic is not relatable.
Wednesday - Bi-weekly Waiting on Wednesday, starting this Wednesday.
Thursday - Theatre Thursday, once a month on the last week, starting this Thursday.
Friday - Fancast Friday, once a month on the first week.
Saturday - Saturday Series, still 'Love, Hate or Both?', once a month on the second week.
Sunday - Spotlight Sunday, still 'Diversity Recs', once a month on the third week.

On average therefore, I'll still be posting three times a week, but I shouldn't lose track at the same time. Reviews, Release Day posts and others will go up as and when.

Thanks, and tune in tomorrow!
