Don’t worry, you can hold on to your ‘missing person’ posters for a little while longer because, although I have been MIA for the past two months, I’m alive, safe, well and back on the blog!

I have been writing blog posts religiously every single week for over a year now and so I felt a little break was not only well-needed, but also well-deserved.

Don’t get me wrong – writing for my blog has always been something I’ve enjoyed doing, and I still do. Besides, it’s completely voluntary on my part and maintained by choice. It’s a platform I use to improve my writing, yes, but it is also one I use as an escape from every day life. It’s therapeutic. Relaxing. Peaceful. I feel like I can natter on about topics that interest me. I can be myself here. And if you enjoy what I have to say, too, then that’s great! Even better.

So I’m back. (From Outer Space).


I have had a whirlwind of a summer – honestly, it’s been crazy – and now I’m back to reality, diving head first into my fourth and final year of university!

Keep an eye out for future posts as I’m going to update you on what’s been happening in my life recently. This means that there will be plenty of travel posts, book hauls, reviews, recommendations and lots more. However, as always, if there’s something in particular you’d like me to touch upon, leave it below in the comments section and I’ll see what I can do.

Nevertheless, despite my absence, I tried my hardest to continue updating Rachael Reads over the summer period and I hope that you enjoyed those posts! Let me know.
