Happy 2014, my literary lovelies!
December was undoubtedly a month of excuses for my seemingly interminable absence from the blogging world. Hopefully it wasn't too much of a surprise, given that I have passed the holidays in the US.
I do like to keep this blog relatively separate from my private life since (1) I am determined to deliver a purely literary-related blog, and (2) I can't imagine that you, dear reader, would find my life all that interesting. I will, however, break this self-imposed rule today, in order to justify my blogging vacation. Because I have been in something of a haze of joy following a proposal from my gorgeous boyfriend. Sparing you all the details, I will say only that even Jane Austen did not prepare me.
At the very least, this hopefully excuses my lack of attention to The Book Habit. I can, however, assure you that this post does mark my official return to the blogging world.
Wishing you all a new year full of health and happiness!
