Coming Up on Rachel's Random Reads...

...well coming up may imply there will be things happening, but strictly speaking that may not be the truth!

If you were expecting a new Rachel Reads Randomly Vote post today, then I am sorry, so was I until it turns out that it was more wishful thinking that I would be able to continue blogging normally until I went on holiday. 

Basically my timeline for the new couple of weeks is:

Until 19th July - blog will be running as long as I read about 3 more books to fill in the gaps in my scheduling. Except for my regular Monday feature. 

20th - 30th July - I will be on a Greek Island Cruise, sunning myself and basically dreading returning to the stress once I am back for on

3rd August I will be moving house. I have been stressed about this for months, especially with the need to downsize my entire life, as it turns out I have a lot of stuff. But the move is going ahead, and its due to this that I am already now running out of time to prep blog posts or even read. 

My reading speed has dropped to a book every couple of days, instead of my normal much quicker average. 

I had already decided that I am blocking off too much advance scheduling and basically from the time I go away until start of September, there will be some posts, I've got 5 guest posts scheduled in for blog tours (at least I hope those will all work), and there may be some reviews as I will still be reading. 

However it won't be at the same rate that I normally love running my blog, so I ask for your patience and understanding this summer, and if I have one of your books waiting for review on my TBR...well the plan is to get to it eventually, I just don't know when. 

Oh and to prospective authors that may be wanting to ask me for a review - my review policy states I'm too busy at the moment, I really do mean that, asking me to make an exception for you isn't necessarily going to please me!!

Other than that I'll be about on social media as much as I can, probably even while I'm on holiday, but hope to be back in September, maybe with my new business ready to launch too (fingers crossed)! 


  1. Have a lovely holiday, hope it relaxes and refreshes you ready for the house move.

  2. Have a lovely holiday - and I hope the move goes well! x

  3. Having been juggling a few things myself, I'd missed your news, Rachel. It seems you're juggling more crazily than I am! Good luck with the move, lovely. Get off on that cruise and ... breathe. Good luck with the move. It'll all be fine ... once it's all done! ;) xx

  4. Well said .. I know how much stress you are under so I will reiterate .. 'Rachel runs a fabulous blog & usually reads like a whirlwind so if she says she is too busy at the moment she really is'!
    I will be with you every step of the way :) x

  5. Have a great holiday, Rachel, and I hope the house move goes smoothly.

  6. Enjoy your holiday Rachel, best wishes for new beginning. 💜
