The library is closing

At the beginning of this year, I put A Fantastical Librarian on hiatus to see whether I was really ready to let go of it. And now that we are halfway through the year, I’ve come to the conclusion that yes, I’m ready to let go. I’ve been reading more than I was last year and I’ve been having fun choosing my books by whimsy instead of publication date again. And I haven’t missed actually writing a long blog post once.

So… it is truly time to say goodbye to my little corner of the web, to this thing I built. I’ve loved my time as a book blogger; I’ve met so many fantastic people through blogging and had some amazing opportunities as well. Thank you to my fellow bloggers, to the friends I’ve made along the way, to the publishers, publicists, and authors who’ve sent me review copies over the years. And of course thank you to my readers, to those who followed from the start and those who just dropped in occasionally.

While the blog will disappear from the web in about a month — and I’ll be deleting the mailing list and the Facebook page at the same time — I’ll always be a Fantastical Librarian. If you want to keep up with what I’m reading and doing, you can always follow me on Twitter or Instagram or friend me on Goodreads.

Thanks for everthing and see you around the web!
