Apologies, Farewells and New Beginnings

I realized today that it's been 3 WHOLE weeks since I logged into my blogger account and actually wrote a post! (Although I did pop on Goodreads, Facebook and Twitter every once in a while.) That's probably the longest break I have ever taken and hopefully it'll be the last.
Apologies for being MIA and thank you so much for all the awesome people who stopped by even when I failed to post new stuff. And really sorry for not being able to respond to all those lovely comments, I hope to stop by and return your comments! :)
Rachel will no longer be blogging here at Say It with Books because she has launched her very own blog, My Book Empire! She's also hosting a PH Only and International giveaway so don't forget to stop by and say Hi!
I'm totally gonna miss her and it's really sad to see her go. But I respect her decision and I am absolutely proud to see her start her own blog! :)
Rachel had short farewell message for you guys so here it is....

In the past few months, I have learned so many things. I have met amazing bloggers, wonderful readers and hardworking writers. So many people supported Say It With Books and helped us promote every post we write and every feature we can think of. I want to thank my co-blogger, Nuzaifa, for being like my mentor and my friend at the same time. I also want to thank all the bloggers who supported us in every step of the way:

..and to all Filipino bloggers and other bloggers that I wasn’t able to mention.

And also to the following authors, just for being cool. 

..and also to all the publishers who also supported us!

There is one thing that I can assure you. This is not goodbye, this is just see you later. I’ll be creating my own book blog and I hope you will also support me just like how you supported Say It With Books. I look forward to meeting amazing readers, writers and bloggers in the future. Again, a big THANK YOU to all of you! And… See y’all later.
New Beginnings
I'm currently working on a new blog design so hopefully Say It with Books will have a brand new look next month!
Now that Rachel has left, I'm also looking for guest reviewers. There is absolutely no restriction as to who can apply. The only requirement is that you should have a passion for books-Simple. ;)
If you are interested in joining the team fill out this form!

Until next time....


  1. I am so happy to finally see a post after weeks:)
    Excited to see your new design Nuz.

    1. I'm glad to be back to-Hope you like the new look, Mishma! :)

  2. No need for apologies, we all need breaks now and again. Looking forward to the grand unveiling of your new design!

  3. Welcome back :D
    Happy reading

  4. Sometimes we just need a break... no worries! (And we love you TOO!) Can't wait to see the new design, and I'm now off to Twitter to share you're looking for guest reviewers! :) <3

    1. Aw, thanks for being so understanding Jessica and thanks for sharing! :D

  5. This I completely understand. A break is needed every now and then and to be honest, I've been awful when it comes to my blog for a long time now. Good luck with the new design, Nuzaifa, and with your guest reviewers. I can't wait to see all the new awesome you have in store for us! :)

    1. Thank you so much for your support, Aa'Ishah! I'm trying hard to get back into the whole reading and reviewing thing again. *fingers crossed* :)

  6. I haven't posted anything in over a week now and don't know how long it's going to last either. So I can understand how breaks can sort of creep up on you. But welcome back! And good luck to Rachel with her new blogging venture! I'm looking forward to reading her posts at My Book Empire. :) Thanks so much for the mention! <3

    1. Tell me about it! I hope you get over the slump soon and thanks for stopping by, Sam! :)

  7. Blogging is super hard--we go through periods where we're pretty sporadic too, and it's especially hard if you're in a reading slump like I am at the moment. But hopefully things bounce back soon for you, Nufaiza. :)
