The Unfortunate Becoming of Gripped into Books AKA Goodbye :(

If you guys haven't realised already, my posts have become pretty infrequent.  So, as you guys can tell by the title of this post, I'm leaving. And this time it's not for a couple of months... it's for good. Arghhh! You don't understand how much I'm saddened by the thought of not blogging anymore.

You know, I didn't actually think that this day would come. I've always though of this as one of the things that I would continue doing, like forever! It's just that two things got in the way. Firstly, a little thing called life. I've got SO much going on right now that I'm finding it difficult to prioritise everything. Blogging and reading is something which simply takes too much of my time. That's what it's partly down to, time. I don't have time to do this anymore...

Oh and how can I forget my other main reason which I never ever thought I'll would say in the history of time. Trust me when I say this one is a right humdinger! So, this is what it had all come down to...  I've gotten bored of reading. No, really. I'm serious. I can't believe I'm saying this either.

Basically, from February, March time my reading intake started to gradually decrease as I had exams in May so I really devoted most of my time to that. Eventually, there came a time where I didn't read for weeks. I was so immersed in studying (I actually even enjoyed it) that when I picked up a book to read one day, the appeal wasn't there. My lack of interest was so immense that I preferred to pick up one of my study books than to read. Even my favourite books- Anna and the French Kiss, Harry Potter, Vampire Academy did not do the trick! Nothing.

I'm not going to delete my blog though. I've put in a lot of work, time and dedication. Even though Gripped into Books isn't something I can do right now, I'm hoping that in some time, I'll come back to it and carry on doing something that I once loved.

One more thing. I'd also like to take this opportunity to say thank you. Thank you to my followers and readers. Thank you for following this blog. Thank you for making me smile by reading my posts, by taking the time to comment, and by simply supporting this blog. I cannot thank you guys enough. I've made so many friends, met so many great people and boy has it been one heck of an adventure.

I'm really going to miss the blogosphere...
And of course, I'm really going to miss blogging :'(
