Things have been a little quiet around here lately. Some stuff came up in my life, and I just haven't had the energy to keep up with the reviewing. I'm ready to get back to it, but I'm going to do things a little differently.
First of all, I'm only going to be writing up books that I really loved. I may not have been blogging, but I've been reading like crazy, and I've found some great stuff. I want to talk about those things. I don't have the patience right now to discuss, or read for that matter, something that I don't love and doesn't make me happy. So expect lots of "I loved this, now let me tell you why" posts in the coming weeks.
Going along with that, I expect my reviews will be shorter and less critical. Not that I felt my reviews were overly critical before, but I'm not interested in nitpicking right now. It takes extra brain power to think carefully about how to express what I didn't like about a book, and I'm not working that hard.
The third change is that I'll be reviewing more m/m romance. I'd read a few m/m titles before, but in the last couple of months I've read some really fantastic books in this sub-genre, and the more I find the more I want to read. I'll probably spend some time talking about the terms and tropes specific to m/m romance, too, partly because it's something that not everyone is familiar with, and partly to show off how much I've learned! ;p
So that's what's going to be happening around here. Of course, all these changes only apply to my own reviews. I'm still happy to post reviews by other Betties on whatever you've been reading lately. There's nothing I enjoy more than talking books with other people who love them as much as I do!
