A Huge Sorry To Everyone And Explanation of Why I Completely Disappeared for Months


I’m really, honestly sorry about all this.

I didn’t plan this.

I honestly didn’t.

But life happens anyways, and most of you already know that I’ve been having a very tough year.

My family life was completely shaken with two deaths, and everything happened right in the middle of my moving abroad… that’s what you already know.

It’s still challenging, living in a foreign country, but I’m getting used to it. I’m also through the very darkest phase of grief, I think. I’m not sure, though… it all comes in waves. I survive, though.

What now has been keeping me from both reading and writing is my work. My schedule is crazy. Overtime is not beginning to explain what I do. I know it sounds lame, but I really do barely have time to eat and sleep, let alone anything that even resembles to a hobby.

Hopefully with time all will be better, but right now, I’m crazy behind with everything (even with furnituring my own flat).

I am so very sorry for everyone that I’ve let down. There’s a couple of blog tours, too, that I agreed to do when I thought I would’ve time at least for a couple of books to read, and then I didn’t even get to give word that I’m not making it… I’M VERY SORRY! I can’t possibly list everyone that this apology is adressed to, please forgive me for that… please, take it as an apology to you personally!

In the upcoming time I plan to share my reviews (mostly minis) that I’ve already written on my blog. Until then maybe I will have enough time to catch up with at least a couple of books that I should’ve already read. My main goal now is to get through my mile long list of requests and read every book, even if it takes months or even years. Until then I don’t accept any new requests.

I hope you don’t hate me.

I love you all!


Dora 🙂

  1. Dora, life happens. Who better would know than a doctor? So first take care of yourself. Grief cannot be quantified. And therefore neither can healing happen. Sometimes it takes months or years. So all you can do is live for a moment, for now, and try to survive through that moment. Life is tough, sometimes too tough. And that is the way it is.
    I wish I could say more. I wish I could I understand. I do but I haven’t lived your life in your shoes. There is no need to apologize. We are your virtual friends. And you need real people around you now. And honestly speaking, no one can ever hate you. There is no need to ask forgiveness for being human. If people don’t understand, it is their problem not yours.
    You need to take care of yourself first. From the grief you are going through, it just told me one thing – how loving your heart is to feel a grief do intense.
    It has been my pleasure and an absolute honor to be friends with you. I will be there when you are ready. And if you don’t want to come back to blogging, that is also cool. I am a mail away. ❤️ I don’t promise to have a solution for you. But I am sure to listen to all that you have to say. Hearts don’t need words. Ah well, they just need papillary muscles to keep beating… ❤️

    1. Thank you so much for your heart-warming words, Shalini! It means a lot❤️ you’re a pretty awesome “virtual friend” 😀❤️ love you 😘


  2. Of course we don’t hate you! Life happens. Grief happens. Sometimes you need to take time away. The book blogging community is one of the most supportive and understanding communities I know.

  3. Life is a mess sometimes and that is okay. It is okay to do what you need to do for you, no matter what you may have previously committed to. The fact that you are willing to step out and say this, is really amazing, especially with all that is going on for you. It speaks volumes to the kind of person you are. Anyone should be more than understanding in these circumstances.

  4. You do not need to apologize for any of this. Life happens and sometimes it is not happy things. I am so sorry for your losses. Grief can knock the stuffing out of you and it takes time to deal with it, sometimes years, so don’t be surprised if it sneaks up on you when you don’t expect it. With all the hours you are working, dealing with changes in your life and other things, make sure to take time for yourself.

    1. Thank you ❤️ well, yes, I don’t really think it will ever go away, one have to simply learn to live with it. I’ve never bought this “time heals” stuff. It doesn’t really… What time does is it dulls the pain. Most of the time.

      1. I hear you. I just read a book called When You Lose Someone you Love. A small book (it is on Goodreads) A very quick read, but gives validation to how people feel while grieving. You might want to check it out.

  5. Dora, you are more than fine when it comes to posting! It sounds like you’ve had a lot going on and it’s important that you take the time to do what’s right and healthy for you. But it is great seeing a post from you again—and we’ll all still be here, excited to read new things from you whenever you can and want to post.

  6. I’m sorry for your loss, Dora! Sounds like you have so much to deal with right now. There’s no need to apologize for taking time for yourself.
