Sheee's baaackk....

Okay, so I haven't been around for awhile. I may or may not write more about it at another point, but basically I've been suffering from a bit of a depression for awhile, and I pretty much hit bottom. I started getting a lot of anxiety and had a couple of panic attacks and freaked out. Never really happened to me before, but it had been building for some time, and had several causes, I think. I feel like I just lost myself for awhile there. But the situation has been taken in hand, and I'm working to turn it around. I plan on getting back to blogging, because I really enjoy it, and it's one of the few things that I do just for fun, that is just for me and isn't for anyone else (although I suppose it's for your reading enjoyment as well).

I have been reading though. I'm on a vampire kick again. As I mentioned, I read The Vampire Who Loved Me by Teresa Medeiros. It's only the second book I've read by Medeiros, and I enjoyed it, but much like its predecessor, After Midnight, it's rapidly fading from memory, so I'd best review soon. I also plan on reviewing Light My Fire by Katie Macalister. I got about 3/4 of the way through Divine By Mistake by PC Cast, and was totally into it. Then I put it down for the Macalister, and I haven't felt like picking it up again. Isn't it weird how that happens?

So I'm at work today, and I notice that Twilight is finally back in. But I was really busy, so I figure I'll grab it on my break. Twenty minutes later, and it was gone. Aargh! I shook my fist at the ceiling, patrons and coworkers be damned. I think I'm just gonna buy it. Oh and Rosario's review of A Hunger Like No Other has finally pushed me over the edge. I was not interested, but the reviews have done their work on me. I'm buying it. So that's where I'm at. In a vampire romance place.

Glad you're coming out of your dark place. I've been there too but I kept blogging. It felt like the only place I could seem to get away from it. For the time I was blogging and reading other blogs, I seemed to escape life for a short while.

I hope you're feeling better - it's good to see you out and about. Sometimes you really need to get away and let yourself heal. Your friends will still be here when you come back.

I didn’t really care for A Hunger Like No Other, but I seem to be in the minority with this opinion, as a lot of other peeps in romanceland really enjoyed it.

Twilight, on the other hand, I recommend. It was such a great read!

I have a review of both books up on my blog if you’re interested.

And I’m glad you’re back and doing better. I understand about depression. It sucks and really can intrude on your life. But I hope things continue to get better and if you ever need to talk or anything, I’m always here. :-)

Thanks for the well wishes everybody!

I'm on the fence about Hunger Like No Other, but I think I must try it.

THe Vampire Who Loved Me is the second of a series? After Midnight sounds familiar but its very vague in my mind, wonder if I've read it? I picked up TVWLM awhile ago, but I haven't read it yet.

Glad you are back!

I've been suffering from the same lately...I haven't read a book in so long, too...can't when I'm in this state. I'm just not willing to do anything. Panic attacks...gosh, keep the paper bag handy (that's what I do) and take care of yourself (sure you've heard this a lot). Glad you're back.
