I have listed these titles in earlier SSS posts: check out my SSS Books Page for links to more reviews:
Every Day by David Levithan, review at Rinn Reads
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson, review at Fantasy Faction
Time For A Rethink?
As you can see, it has not been a massively exciting week for me in the blogosphere and I am beginning to have doubts about my blogging. I know that this is something that most bloggers feel every now and then, as you can see from Rinn’s post this week, so I know that I am not alone in having the occasional crisis of confidence. Perhaps it is a good thing that I occasionally reflect on what I am doing and if I want to continue in the same vein or change things around. I have had a constant battle this year with my inability to simply sit down and write reviews, and I guess that I need to make a decision about what I am doing with the blog, create a plan and then stick to it. Or not . . . first I need to scrape together some motivation!
The lack of interesting links this week is partly due to my decision not to highlight Scott Lynch’s The Republic of Thieves on my SSS page a few weeks ago as the reviews started to roll out. I will be taking part in a Read Along of the title, so I have avoided reading anybody’s opinion on the second book on my Most Anticipated list this year (after Celtic Moon by Jan DeLima – I think I might have mentioned it once or twice!). This title has received a lot of attention over the last few weeks, which I have studiously ignored so that I can revel in my discovery of the latest adventures of Locke Lamora and Jean Tannen in the same way that I would savor a bar of the world’s best chocolate. I just hope that all my self-discipline will be rewarded . . .
In short, I think you can expect a few changes over the next few weeks as I try to rethink my interaction with the blogging world and get myself organized. Wish me luck!
