News & Updates at Oh, the Books!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: TWO-WEEK HIATUS
Oh, the Books! is going on a hiatus. For the next two weeks, there will be no posts, tweets, or activity from the Oh, the Books! team (apart from some comment replies). Both Kelley and Asti are struggling finding the motivation to blog as a result of some big life changes, and just need a little time away to rejuvenate. Don’t worry though, we plan on coming back. Our next post will be on Monday, March 2nd! See you then. 🙂

- Asti shared her blog tour survey results.

Our Lives This Week
In Asti’s Life…
In case you haven’t noticed, I have sort of been MIA these past two weeks. I’ve moved home and I’m just feeling like… shit. As always with depression, it just feels like every single thing is going wrong and it’s hard to think things can get better. I have no motivation to do the things I love to do, and I feel myself withdrawing from others as I struggle with so much negativity in my mind. As a result, I haven’t touched this blog at all these past two weeks, (and have barely touched my personal one,) leaving poor Kelley to message me every once in a while to see if I’m still planning on contributing to things like the Weekly Recap or running our social media accounts. It’s horrible.
Fortunately (or not so fortunately, because it means Kelley’s been having a rough time too), we’ve decided to have a little hiatus which means for the next two weeks I can do what I’m doing without the guilt that has accompanied my slacking. (Because really, feeling like crap and then feeling guilty for feeling like crap only leads to more crap feelings!)
Hopefully when the hiatus is over, I’ll be feeling rejuvenated and ready to kick ass once again. I’m not completely convinced that will be the case (because Dave leaves me on the last day of February, which means I’ll have a whole new set of negative emotions thrust upon me), but I’m going to do what I can. In the meantime, I appreciate everyone’s love and support. This community is the best, and I miss being more involved with it.
