Everyone looks for it and they all eventually find it somehow. Or at least the semblance of it. What is that I am talking about? Balance. It is what I have been trying to find since I started this blog and found myself getting slightly overwhelmed with all of the outside noise and what I want this blog to be. I know that there are a lot of things that are offered on other blogs, giveaways and author connections, etc. But I started this blog to review books. I chose to not specialize in anything because I read everything. I don't think that YA is better than adult. I don't think that paranormal is better than romance. I like to read good books. I follow several blogs, some are just regular joe blogs that share the love of reading. Some are author connections that I choose to follow as a way of honing my craft and take me one step closer to becoming a better writer. I thought that to be a good blog host, I would have to post a review everyday. I am a fast reader, but not that fast. (If that was the case I wouldn't be playing catch up). In truth, this blog is whatever I choose for it to be. I want this to be a place that introduces people to awesome books. For the most part, I want to highlight books that may get overlooked. They may not be books that are about to be released. One day I may have caught up enough with my backlog that I'll be able to do that. I would like to host regular giveaways. Maybe one day I will get to that. I would also like to follow other bloggers meme's and/or read-a-longs. One day, I will definitely get to that. But after some disheartening news about one of the first blogs I began, I thought that I should follow my rule of thumb that I use with my in-the-flesh friends. Always be careful who you line yourself up with. I have not taken sides on any issues (if you know what I am talking about, then you do. If you don't then don't worry about it). Sometimes, I think it is best not to know what I know or what I think I know. But, anyhoo. I follow too many blogs to keep up with, so yes I will be rethinking about who I follow. Maybe I'll keep following them all. But, now that I have found my rhythm I think I owe it to you as my reader (whether one time or continuous) to maintain that rhythm. I am redoing the way that I review books and I will be redoing the way that I choose books to review. I have found a balance by going back to my original idea for this blog -to talk about and share books. So there will be reviews, but I also want to be able to discuss the idea found in books. So, I will be sure to label all reviews as such so that if you're not interested in anything else you can pass on it. I would like to highlight authors that have wowed me and some that have not. Nothing will be done with the intent to harm, if I don't like something I will not bash it. But, I will offer my thoughts as an avid reader in the hopes of encouraging and making something better. That is all that I can do. I hope that you all enjoy the journey of reading we are about to embark on.
