Reasons I Blog – What Will Become Of This Blog

Over the past couple of months, I’ve thought a lot about what I’d like to include on this blog and what my goal is. All I can say right now is, I’m not really sure.

I’ve seen so many posts saying how book reviews don’t get many views and that people want to see more discussion posts; but my personal goal is not to write discussion posts. With the time and effort that goes into one of them, I could be writing for a major publication and getting paid, rather than my small book blog that not as many people see and where I work on for free.

At the end of the day, I need to think of my reasons for creating this blog. I made it for fun so I’d have a place to review books and do some book tags, maybe meet some more people that are into the same books as me. My end goal is not a ton of views and followers, it’s just to have fun and find some new books to check out.

So, you probably will not be seeing any huge discussion posts on this blog, and I may not post as often as other blogs do. I’ll definitely be sure to share links to any articles and posts I do on other sites, though, and you’re always welcome to follow me on my social media!

 

October Wrap Up

Happy Halloween!!! Can you believe October is over already?! This year has been going so fast, it’s unbelievable!

This wraps up my second month of blogging! I really didn’t do very well this month. Between family emergencies and mental health, I got much less done when compared to last month. I’m really hoping to turn that around for November!

November TBR 2017 – Read-A-Thin

I was going to make a regular November TBR list, but then I found this read-a-thon on DuskAngelReads and it seemed like a great idea, so please check out their post as well!

The point is, to choose at least 4 books that fit into the given categories from books that you already own or have already borrowed from the library. That means no buying new books! One book can fit in up to 2 categories, so you can pick 8 different categories. You can find the full details on the Goodreads page!

I actually have a lot of books I need to read that fit into multiple of these categories, so I will definitely be listing more than 4 books.

The Reader By Traci Chee – Spoiler Free Review

 

The ReaderTitle: The Reader
Author: Traci Chee
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Adventure
Disclaimer: I did receive a free copy from Penguin Random House, but initially purchased my own copy with the intention of reviewing it.

Synopsis:
Sefia knows what it means to survive. After her father is brutally murdered, she flees into the wilderness with her aunt Nin, who teaches her to hunt, track, and steal. But when Nin is kidnapped, leaving Sefia completely alone, none of her survival skills can help her discover where Nin’s been taken, or if she’s even alive. The only clue to both her aunt’s disappearance and her father’s murder is the odd rectangular object her father left behind, an object she comes to realize is a book–a marvelous item unheard of in her otherwise illiterate society. With the help of this book, and the aid of a mysterious stranger with dark secrets of his own, Sefia sets out to rescue her aunt and discover what really happened the day her father was killed–and punish the people responsible.

Where to Buy: Amazon | Book Depository
