Fields & Fantasies: What’s Coming Up

Fields & Fantasies is a monthly book club, in which I team up with my bookish pal Diana (of Strahbary’s Fields) to pick a book to read and discuss. We’d love for you to join us!

Our posts and discussions always take place on the last day of the month.

Here’s what’s coming up in the next few months:

Flashback Friday… is taking a little break


I’ve been running Flashback Friday posts here at Bookshelf Fantasies pretty much every Friday for the past year and a half… and I’m feeling a bit burned out at the moment. I’m thinking of giving it a rest for a while, until I get re-inspired all over again.

For now, I’m going to discontinue my weekly feature, and will post Flashback Fridays whenever the muse strikes me.

For those of you who’ve taken the time to comment or link up your own Flashback Friday posts, THANK YOU! I appreciate you very, very much.

I’m not abandoning Flashback Friday altogether — just giving myself a bit of a break from the weekly routine, which has started to feel more like pressure than like fun.

So, stay tuned! I’ll still post my older book favorites here and there… keep an eye out for pop-up Flashback Friday posts! You never know when they might turn up…

And if you’ve enjoyed Flashback Fridays and think I should keep going, let me know!

Thanks again for all your support.

Excuse the Interruption!

Bookshelf Fantasies’ regularly scheduled features — Thursday Quotables and Flashback Friday — are taking a teeny break this week thanks to a deluge of real life craziness. How dare real life intrude on my reading and blogging???

Thursday Quotables and Flashback Friday will return next week. Meanwhile, please find comfort in kitties and rainbows!
