A big change – The Bookwormery retires.

Due to my immunotherapy treatment for my stage 4 malignant melanoma, plus 2 surgeries in the same spot and radiotherapy, again in the same place, I now have nerve damage and neuropathy.

This means constant numbness, pins and needles and horrible pains which range from deep aches in my shoulder, elbow and left hand. Plus the joy of stinging pains in my numb armpit and stabbing pains in my fingers and hand. I am left handed and no longer have any real control over it, I can’t write properly but am slowly learning to use my right hand….mmm slow going.

So, the result is I am no longer able to put the time and effort into reading and book blogging, a hard decision but I just can’t concentrate on a book anymore and that’s just not fair on the authors.

I am now just doing my other hobby making pretty resin items. I can do that with one hand!

Thank you to the incredible blog tour organisers for the support and the chance to have read some truly amazing books.

      1. Yes the heat is a bit mental. It’s either freezing cold or scorching hot. A nice 21 degrees and a bit of sunshine is enough x
