I’ve mentioned before that I wanted to do something different with how I approached reviewing and the cat’s finally out of the bag, I’ve decided to switch primarily to vlog reviews. It’s an idea I’ve been toying with for ages but I know YouTube can be a pretty toxic place (I’ve had friends receive some really unpleasant comments on their videos) so I wanted to take the time to be sure I definitely wanted to do it.
The plan at the moment is that I’ll do a monthly vlog where I review all of the books I’ve read. In the future I may well increase the frequency of my vlogs but I want to keep things manageable whilst I get to grips with recording and editing etc.
I recorded January’s wrap up on Monday, after a couple of false starts it was pretty smooth sailing though I must warn you I do talk quite a lot. When I rewatched it with a view to making it shorter I found that I didn’t feel like cutting anything out so I’ve decided to own my wordiness.
The books I review are (with the approximate times I start talking about them):
- Heat Wave by Richard Castle. Titan Books. (2:35)
- Love Hurts edited by Malorie Blackman. Random House Children’s Books. (4:20)
- A Hero at the End of the World by Erin Claiborne. Big Bang Press. (12:00)
I had a lot of fun recording this video, I’m already looking forward to February’s!
