I'm Baaaack!

Yes, after a month long hiatus, I'm back. And sorry. Please forgive me for the abrupt, unannounced disappearance.

Please don't hurt me!
I know I never mentioned this here but those of you who follow me on Twitter know that I took a bit of a hiatus around the holidays. Between work, a death in the family, traveling to Mexico for my BFF's wedding (!), there was just too much going on and I couldn't handle the blog. 


But in all honesty, it wasn't just the busy schedule that kept me away. Blogging had, sort of, become a bit of a chore so I used the break to reevaluate the direction I was headed and the time I'd be able to dedicate to blogging. I started Foil the Plot because I'm passionate about books/movies and I wanted to share that love with all of you. I strive to be honest with everything I post and I want the blog to reflect both that passion and honesty. I can't do that if reviewing/reading starts to feel like a chore.

Ultimately, what did I learn during my time away? That I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bookish community and the discussion that we share, the friendships I've made. I still love reading and talking about reading with all of you. I learned that I don't want to stop blogging, at least, not yet. I may have to adjust how frequently I blog because I need to maintain some sense of a decent work/blog/life balance, but I am here to stay. 

So, apologies abound, I'm officially returning next week with a review and super killer giveaway to start off the new year. Here's to another year of books, friends and FANTASTICAL discussion! 

Cheers!
