Hello lovely followers,
I know there are a good many of you here for the giveaways (you can just head on over here
because this will probably be boring), but the majority of you who have followed me actually like my reviews. (Yes, I know - when I write them.) I've made it very clear that my free time has been extremely limited since June, so I don't write as many reviews. I still read loads of books, but I'm only reviewing probably one in three. Why, you ask? Well, I think I may have reviewed myself into a corner with my last style change.
Having my own personal guidelines to write reviews was extremely helpful at first. I knew what I had to make myself focus on to write a review that will be informative about a book. However, it is boring the snot out of me. I'm not that kind of writer. I'm not that kind of person. Hell, I wasn't even that kind of blogger until I started this one really hardcore. I wanted to be all fancy and professional, but the most professional that I get in my personal life is wearing trouser socks occasionally. Why should I subject my readers to something that bores me to write? Why would I want to disrespect a book that I loved by trudging through a review? Ummm... I don't. So I'm not going to do that anymore.
I would like my reviews to be fun like my blog posts over on Gasoline Wishes and Fry Cook Dreams
, which I gave up to focus on books. I love books and reading, and I also love my stupid little cartoons. Even if no one else ever laughed at them, they always made me giggle like an insane person. Ideally, I would like to incorporate them into my reviews. I won't do it in a disrespectful way, but I'm tired of not being silly and having fun. Because I am silly. And awkward. REALLY
awkward. Honestly, it's draining to try to be anything else. The plus side is that I get to share books with you and have you give me that "please help that girl" look. Well, maybe I don't want you to do that, but you get the drift.
So this is me, changing things up. We'll see how it works out. Oh, and I'm chilling out a bit on all of the blog tours and blasts. I've been signing up for about a quarter less than before. I'm also going to fish Will out of the internet and away from being a newlywed, hopefully for long enough to wring a review or two out of him. We misses him, Precious.
That is all. Carry on with your normally scheduled interwebing.
