I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

Long Awaited Update Letter:

Dear Everyone,

I just wanted to say sorry it has been forever since I have posted. I know I have been gone since before Christmas, and I have missed you. Yes, I have missed my followers, fellow bloggers, and fellow obsessed book worms. I am posting today to let you know where I have been, and also what to expect from Books Are Precious Gems in the future. I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season, and that you all got a bunch of new books to read. I know I have! And I will be updating you on that next Sunday on my IMM.

So where have I been for the past couple of months? Well, I finally got a job after two years of being unemployed, and I have been super busy with it. I now work for a company called Classic Granite and Marble. We fabricate and install granite counter tops. I am really enjoying the job so far. Also my husband has gotten a promotion, and we will be moving into our own apartment really soon. So I have just been super busy, but I am here to tell you that I am now back!

Changes? Well with a new year comes a new book rating. I don't want to go into to much detail, but you will hear much more about that very soon. I will still be posting a few memes here and there, including WoWs, Cover Love, Monday's News, and IMMs. I am a super busy women now so I can't promise that I will be as active as before, but I will try my very best. I miss communicating with fellow book lovers, and sharing my bookish knowledge.  I can't promise I will have as many book reviews posted as before, but I am going to try to at least have one or two a week.

I can't wait to get back in communication with you all. Hope everyone has a great week, and that you all enjoy watching the Super Bowl tonight.

Laura @ Books Are Precious Gems
