Focus and Posts


The focus of this blog is three fold:

1. To read books and tell you what I think of them. Because I CAN.
2. To participate in the book blogging community. Because everyone is so amazing.
3. To do something that I enjoy. Because otherwise, what am I doing here?

What types of books, you ask? Well, YA fiction--especially YA sci-fi/fantasy and dystopian subgenres--have been dominating my read list for several years now. But I will read just about anything that gets my attention.


To lend some structure and routine to the tornado that is my ADD brain, I'm going to focus (at least at first) on three types of posts: Reviews, Memes, and Reading Challenges.

Review posts:

New Reviews: In these posts I will either link to the book's summary on GoodReads or write my own brief summary. Then I will discuss what I liked or didn't like about the book. I'm sure I will sometimes veer off on a tangent--such as any controversy surrounding the book or (more than likely) a feminist rant about one of the characters. I'll also rate the book and, if I think it's necessary, mention to whom I would most recommend the book.

Reviews Redux: Also, I'm planning on reposting previous reviews that I have archived right now. I will re-post and revisit my old reviews, and hopefully people will find this interesting or helpful.



Monday: It's Monday, What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Shelia at Book Journey. Here I will talk about what I read and reviewed the previous week and what I'm planning on reading during the coming week. I might also talk about anything I've purchased or picked up from the library.

Tuesday: Teaser Tuesday is a meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. In these posts I'll preview a few lines from a book I'm reading or will be reading.

Wednesday: Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. In these posts I will highlight books unreleased books I want to read.

Thursday: Thursday Thoughts isn't a meme hosted by a book blogger, as far as I can tell, but I want to make it a regular occurrence on my blog. If I get any feedback (and confirmation that no one else is doing it) maybe I'll begin hosting it as a meme. In these posts, I will consider any issues that have been on my mind or things that are happening in my life. I may or may not connect this to a book I've been reading.

Friday: TGIF is a meme hosted by Ginger from gReads. Each week Ginger poses a question and we answer it.

Saturday: I have a life people. I'm taking this day off!

Sunday: Sunday Salon is now hosted on Facebook and I'm still waiting for them to add me, but I'll be doing this post regardless. This is usually a recap-style post or an in-depth review. I will also contribute to Girlxoxo's Sunday Best Link Party, though that won't require a separate post.

Reading Challenges:

Occasionally, I might join a few reading challenges, even though I'm trying to resist because doing too many of them created too much structure for my reading. I like to be able to pick up a book and read and not have to worry about what challenges it will fit. But when I do, I'll post about joining and I'll post some reflections when I finish it. I'm also keeping track of them on a separate page.
