I AM BACK. Things are mostly back to normal around here. Thanks for being patient as I take my break. I’m still mostly on a Twitter break, not sure I’ll ever go back to a full Twitter binge like I was–I’ve found it is way better for my mental health to only check in there once or twice a day, rather than stream it all day long. But I’m up to my normal reading/blogging schedule!

If you missed it, I posted my first review of Oasis of the Seas. I still have lots of thoughts left, so I probably will do at least two more posts. Watch for those in the coming weeks!

A couple of quick housekeeping notes:  I updated my About Page to show my new mission and goals for this year. I also included my rating system.

I’m also participating in a few challenges for 2017:  Read Around the World (continuing), Beat The Backlist, and DiversityBingo2017. You should check those out and join us!

One more thing:  I did a post about Carve the Mark yesterday. I’d appreciate it if you took the time to read what I wrote, and then go check out some of the threads on twitter. There’s a lot being said and all of it is very thoughtful and important to the book community.
