Still here....sort of

Hello, friends! I owe you all an apology because I have done a horrible job of keeping up with things here on Booklikes lately. Between kids, house, writing - you know, life - this blog has fallen through the cracks, and I miss you all!


Since I can't promise that things are getting better anytime soon, I wanted to at least invite you all to follow/friend me on other platforms where I do a better job of staying active (a little better at least).

Unfortunately, I haven't been doing much reviewing, so following me on Goodreads won't gain you much. If you'd like to, I'm here: https://www.goodreads.com/samanthajw. My lack of reviewing is a combination of lack of time and need to censor myself. It is definitely frowned upon for a writer to tear apart another writer's work, and I've seen too many people review books by fellow indie authors and give them reviews that they don't deserve. I get it. It's a tough road. But I am not willing to give 5-stars to a book that hasn't earned it, so I just keep my mouth shut.


Another item is the book club that I have started here (http://booklikes.com/book-clubs/10/more-historical-than-fiction). It has gone inactive, but if anyone is interested in reviving and admining it, I'm happy to turn it over.


I hope everyone is having an amazing summer! Happy reading!
