After a turbulent year of touring, a new marriage and a baby on the way, Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Bieber says he's taking some time off from music to focus on his mental health and family.


It's been almost four years since the release of Justin Bieber's 2015 album Purpose and patient fans have been eagerly awaiting the next project from the 25-year-old pop-star for a while now. Sadly for them, they're going to have to wait a bit longer.

On Monday, Bieber took to social media to announce that he's taking a break from music.

In a heartfelt message posted to Instagram, Bieber explained to fans that for the time being he plans on focusing on his marriage and what he called "deep rooted issues."



Bieber wrote in part:

"So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I've toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don't deserve that and you don't deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour," Bieber wrote.
"I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don't fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be."

Although disappointing, Bieber's announcement is unlikely to surprise fans familiar with his recent troubles.

Earlier in March, Bieber shared with fans on Instagram that he had been "struggling a lot" and "feeling super disconnected and weird."



Later on Monday, after announcing his sabbatical Bieber, mixed it up with a troll account on Instagram in the comments of a post he made about his wife Hailey.



Bieber tore into the user behind the troll account @jaileyisajoke, which is dedicated to criticizing the couple's marriage.

After accusing Justin of marrying Hailey to get back at his ex Selena Gomez, Bieber admitted to still having feelings for Gomez but denied the claim and asks fans to stop sending hurtful messages to his wife.


Although fans may have been expecting a new album from Bieber on the horizon most were glad to hear that Bieber would be taking the time to focus on himself and his marriage.




Even though he's stepping back from music for now, Bieber assured fans he'd be back and better than ever soon.

"Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health," Bieber wrote. "I will come with a kick ass album ASAP."

So while it may be a while before some new music fans can keep on "Beliebing."

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,

"What's the scariest book you've ever read?"
