No, aliens did not take me away and zombies did not force me into hiding! I did have to take a break from reading, unfortunately, due to some pretty important things going on in my life. Made it really hard to focus on reading and after I made it halfway through a book without having a clue what was going on, I had to set aside the books until things calmed down and I could do these books justice.
The time is now. Onward!
