Happy belated Thanksgiving! I was traveling for the holiday week so I dropped my review-a-week blogging schedule. As a new book blogger, I’m testing out the types of writing I’d like to do, and a monthly recap seems helpful so I can stay on course without taking too much time from my reading. This month I reviewed two works of literary fiction and two works of crime fiction. They are my two favorite genres, and I anticipate reviewing more crime fiction than literary fiction going forward. I also expect to review a classic every month or so. My goal for the next month is to post one review a week, and I intend to post reviews more frequently starting in 2012.
I haven’t experimented much with different types of posts on this blog. I plan on focusing on reviews because I like to recommend books. I haven’t tried any weekly memes yet because I’d rather spend my time reading than in churning out posts. If I find an interesting meme, I may join. I do plan on posting my favorite reads of 2011 before the end of the year, and in 2012 I plan to post my favorite reads every 4-6 months. Finally, I have joined the Back to the Classics Challenge 2012 in an effort to round out my reading with books I’ve been meaning to read for years. I’m still and English major obsessed with reading lists!
