To me, blogging has become a chore.
Jamie from the Perpetual Page Turner first inspired me with her blogging manifesto, and I'm pretty much breaking every single rule. I'm jealous. I'm not putting real life first. Blogging is becoming a burden. I'm feeling guilty about reading certain books and not reading other books. I'm constantly comparing myself to others. I'm writing posts because I feel I have to, not because I sincerely want to.
Then, I saw this post from Just A YA Girl and I started to tear up. Literally, I started to get tears in my eyes. Yeah, I know that's dramatic and ridiculous but it is also TRUE. As if I needed another sign that I needed a break!
I'm taking a blogging sabbatical for the summer. I'll still be reading and commenting and on Twitter, but I won't be posting here. I'll reevaluate how I'm feeling in September and see how my time away has impacted my desire and passion for blogging.

Ginger will hold down the fort with Rewind & Review.
Thanks for your patience and support as I reflect on what this blog means to me and where I go from here.
