This week’s been a bit stressful for me because I’ve been having some difficulty with juggling school and blogging together, which is why I haven’t been able to comment back as quickly as I could before, so I apologize! Weekends are the worst, though, because I’m usually out the whole day. I promise I’ll get back to all your comments as soon as possible. Thanks for bearing with me!

What about you?
If you’ve noticed, this past couple of weeks, I’ve been trying a new form of commenting. What, what?! Nah, it’s really simple. Christina from Christina Reads YA inspired me with her ultra long, ultra thoughtful comments, and I though: “Hey, I want to be like that!” So instead of writing only one paragraph of a comment, I try to pick out things that strike me in reviews and discussion posts and elaborate on them with my own opinions. I don’t know if it’s working so far, but what do you think? Do you prefer long, meaningful (or not, since I can’t tell with mine) comments, or do you prefer short and sweet ones? And if you’ve seen some of my recent comments, do you think they’re too long and too full of MY opinions? I don’t want to turn comments into something about me, after all, since the post I’m commenting on is about YOU. Let me know!
