Update: Hiatus

Hey guys,

I think this update has had a long time coming. I started Project Read and Review in August 2011 when I was fourteen years old, and I've been dedicated to it ever since. Reading books and writing reviews of them...it felt like I had found my calling, and I fell in love with both the hobby and the blog. However, as the blog grew bigger, I started to post more and more often - which was great until I started my A-Levels. Although throughout secondary school your teachers rant on and on about how stressful they can be, I don't think you fully understand just how stressful it is until that first week of the school year. The jump between GCSEs and A-Levels are huge enough as it is - combine that with the fact I'm taking three heavy subjects, and it can get pretty difficult to find time to pleasure read (especially since I'm taking English Literature, which requires a lot of outside reading). 

There's also the fact that reading has kind of turned into more of a job than a hobby. I've been a bookworm since I can remember, but recently I've been so busy with a backlog of review books that I just can't find the time to read and review them as well as enjoy them. I miss reading books for pleasure, not rushing through them so I can start another one.

Finally, I think I'm slowly outgrowing the Young Adult genre. There, I said it. For a long time, I think I was in denial about this - my blog, my baby, is specifically for YA reads - what was I going to do if I got bored of the genre? Recently (and I mildly blame English Lit for this) I've been yearning to read some of the classics - Pride and Prejudice, The Picture of Dorian Grey, The Great Gatsby - as well as longer, adult novels, like the Game of Thrones series. Whilst I won't completely abandon the genre (I don't think I could do that to John Green) I do want to broaden my reading tastes.

Because of all these factors, I've finally decided that the blog will be on hiatus for a while. I don't know how long for or if it will ever be up and running again. But before I go, I just want to say thank you - thank you to all you 600 individuals out there who have read my reviews, cried with me over TFiOS, and put up with my random text posts containing an extensive amount of gifs. These last three years have been amazing, and I have loved being part of the blogging community. Although I won't be posting reviews on here anymore, I will be posting on my new Goodreads account, so if you fancy still reading my random rants, then you're more than welcome to add me.

Thanks again,

Nina

  3. It centers on Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens), the little louis vuitton outlet girl from the first film now all grown up to fetching high school age. She holds the key to some great evil imprisoned in the town of Silent Hill chanel replica, along with crazy cultists, fetishized bondage demons and her own evil mother/sister/twin. Her father (Bean) keeps moving her around, lest the crazy cultists hunt her down replica handbags, but when he gets kidnapped, she has to come to Silent Hill to get him. Sure, she knows it the one place she should never, ever go under any circumstances, but a horror movie hermes outlet cannot live on only a dream fake-outs forever.
