Bookish Ramblings # 3 - Book Reviewing
This blog started in March 2016; and at this point in time, since I'll most likely have a new book blog website up hopefully soon, I'll be sharing more in depth details about the history of my book blog there.
I did my first review with Booktasters (who are on Twitter, and if you'd like to check them out, you can go here), and at that stage, I had no idea that I would come to love book reviewing as much as I do now. I still (try) do reviews for them once a month.
Since then, I have come into contact with a lot of authors as well as fellow book bloggers. I have a tendency to lean towards indie or self-published, but I also really enjoy traditional published reads as well - though they are usually leisure reads. I could list quite a few favourite authors, but then this blog post would be a little bit too long! (I could consider that for a future topic for this series.) I try to review as much as possible, but at this stage, working a full-time day job doesn't allow for much - on a really good week, I might get three done, but it usually only ends up being one or two.
In the beginning, I didn't have to schedule my reads - nowadays; I definitely do!
And as from next year, I'm hoping that I'll be able to get more reviews in; since I'm going to be focusing my full attention on my blog. I'm also hoping that I'll be able to get through some of my tbr that's been around for awhile - as well as getting some more leisure reading done.
I could carry on all day about this topic and how grateful I am as to how far I've been able to come with my book blog. If you're an avid reader, I'm sure you'll know the feeling that your list of favourite authors grow at a very rapid pace - such that you nearly can't keep up!
And before this post gets a little bit too long... The last thing that I'm going to say is that there are times when I love lingering thoughtfully on a book that I'm really enjoying. The danger to that one is that at some stage - I consider getting the paperback!
