Hiatus Time!

Netherlands

I can’t believe the day has almost arrived! Tomorrow is August 14th, which means I will be boarding a plane with the final destination Schiphol Airport, The Netherlands. It also means It’s All About Books and me will be going on a hiatus… I will be doing visa-related paperwork mostly; I’m keeping my fingers crossed there won’t be too much hassle so I can return home quickly. I sure will be missing my hubby and my furry friends in the mean time… And all of you of course! ❤

I leave you all with a picture of my cat Jasmin and my dog Paco… I hope everyone will have a great month and happy reading!

It’s All About Books is going Dutch!

Those who follow my blog will probably already know I will be traveling to the Netherlands next month… Since I won’t be having access to my computer, files or PhotoFiltre, I have decided It’s All About Books and me will be going on on a hiatus starting August 14th.

This also means I will not be accepting any new ARCs/ review copies until further notice. I’m honored for the offer, but I won’t be able to post reviews properly for the time being. (And I’m way behind with my pending books as it is.)

Since I will be in the Netherlands for paperwork and I have no idea how long this will take (weeks, months??), I have no fixed return date yet… And I probably won’t be posting anything new after August 14th until I’m back home. I will still lurk in the shadows though, so you might see a comment or two! And I will be reading a lot, so I will have tons of new reviews for when I’m back. 😉

It’s All About Books is going on a Backpacking Adventure!!!

The departure day has finally almost arrived! Yay! Tomorrow my hubby, the green monster (my backpack) and I will be starting our six week backpacking adventure… I’m so excited!!! 😀 😀 😀

We will be taking a 22 hour bus ride to the Bolivian border and we will start traveling Bolivia from there… Tupiza, the Salt flats, La Paz, Copacabana, Potosi; I can’t wait to visit those places and more! We will most likely visit the Peruvian side of the Titicaca lake as well, although the idea is to get back to Argentina with loads of time left so we can visit the northern provinces (Salta, Jujuy) before we travel back home.

As you might guess, I won’t be having a lot of time to blog or read during my trip… Having crappy internet connection most of the time doesn’t really help either. 😉 So It’s All About Books will also be on vacation until November; I’ve no posts scheduled (I still have a few book reviews, tags and awards lined up, but I just couldn’t find time to finish them before I leave) and most likely I won’t be able to respond to comments until I’m back…

So I guess I see you guys when I’m back in November!!!

Have A Break, Have A…

No, this post isn’t about chocolate, although browsing for KitKat pics made me crave chocolate… Yum… This post is actually about me going away for the long weekend and coming back next Monday. 😀 I will be out of town but not out of touch, because I still have a few posts scheduled for the next few days… Although I’m not sure if I will have much internet access before Monday. Yay for recharging batteries!

I hope everybody is having a great week and an even better weekend!

Summer Vacation!

Here in Argentina it is Summer time now, and the summer vacation has arrived! I will be going to the coast with my hubby tomorrow, to be back anywhere before the 27th. We’re going to a small island where it’s all about going back to nature and enjoying being outdoors, so no WIFI or computer close… Which means It’s All About Books is also going on vacation temporarily. 😀

Like Schwarzenegger once said: I’ll be back! With a Gone Girl book review I’ve just finished today and completely loved. Damn, that book messed with my head; so many plot twist bombs dropping down on me that I just couldn’t stop reading the second half of the book! I’ve also started Paper Towns today, which I will finish depending on the availability of electricity on the island… (It’s an ebook and I don’t know if I will be having power 24/7.) If not, I have some paperbacks lined up to be read as well! 😉

Happy reading and have a great week everyone!

Why I’ve Been Gone

No, I haven’t disappeared from the face of the earth… I have been busy getting paint spatters all over myself while I am painting my home with my hubby. We started last Thursday and have been preparing and painting ever since; our stuff, including computer, stored away while we work at our place. No computer means no easy access to WordPress and no chance of posting my pending reviews and other book memes… Windows Phone and WordPress just don’t go together. We will be trying to finish before the end of the weekend, so hopefully I will be back by next Monday. Until then, happy reading and have a great week you all! I’m sure yours won’t be as tiring as mine haha. 😀

P.S. Two of our walls are now Caribbean blue (similar to the bottom one in the picture)! I’m absolutely loving the color! 😀

Mini-Vacation Hiatus

Lomogram_2014-04-17_07-39-28-PM (1)My cat and I are saying goodbye for a few days! I will be going on a mini vacation with my hubby and I won’t be having ready access to internet. I should be back and running next Thursday (July 31st)…

I hope to finish some books (The Middle Passage and Throne Of Glass) while I’m gone, but as I’m going to visit some friends I don’t get to see often, I won’t promise anything. 😉 I’m trying not to start new books, as I will be participating in the Dusting Off The Shelf Read-A-Thon that Emily at Books & Cleverness is hosting starting August 1st. I’m excited about finally reading some of those poor neglected books! Please check out her post and awesome blog.

See you all when I come back!
