October 2014 Recap

October was a bit of a weird month blog wise, all the drama over the last few weeks has really put me into a blogging slump. I've not wanted to spend time online let alone writing reviews so the last half of the month was pretty short on blog posts which I apologise for. Thankfully all that time I've not been sitting in front of my laptop has been spent reading instead so although I'm ridiculously behind writing reviews I do have plenty of posts planned (if I can force myself to sit down and write them LOL). I'm determined to have more success in November, this blogging slump won't beat me & I won't let the actions of a couple of crazy people put me off from doing something I love. So thanks for bearing with me and I promise to get things back to normal around here ASAP :o)
