Back story: I was supposed to post my Top Ten Tuesday but the topic (Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait To Get) didn’t fit me quite well. I only read few series and tons of stand-alone. And if I do read one, I make sure that I have every single book in that series. Because I’ve been traumatized by cliffhangers and spoilers. So you know..safety first.
So introducing this is new meme, which is Book Blogger Hop! Where they post and ask a particular question of the week and I answer them.
This week’s question is:
As you grow in your blogging experience, have you become more particular in terms of what you will post on your blog or what books you will read for review on your blog?
My blog is fairly new. It’s quite young; I only started this year. Soo in terms of my “experience”, I’ve always been particular of what to post. I might have an OCD (Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder). You know, a person who gets satisfied when everything is neatly set and organized. Something like this:
Well I’m not that crazy.. yet. And if I have to be really really honest. I have this thing: I just can’t stand minor errors in my blog posts. Like typos, missing comma, spacing, alignment and such. Hence, this madness:
But no worries, my minimum revisions are usually 8 or so. Which is normal, right? RIGHT?
Besides that, I do have a theme. Which is plain, I know. Maybe boring. But I have my reasons: so that whatever picture I post won’t clash with the blog and it will stand out more. If you’re familiar to my blog, I always put my physical copy (usually) of the book I’m reviewing and also the price (in pesos). And I categorize them in that way–here.
I have nothing against books that are not in physical copy such as e-book and audio. It’s just that I’m not just a reader; I’m also a book collector as well, even an addict. So I prefer them tangible. See: (Btw, that’s not everything. I just can’t make it fit in one picture)
And I’m open to any kind of books–fiction and non-fiction. Well maybe not Erotica. But yes, I’ve read Fifty Shades of Gray and let’s just say it was scarring. Just full of sex, really. Which is pretty appropriate, I think.
I review books that pique my interest doesn’t matter what genre it’s in. And it’s usually Adult, specifically historical fiction. I read YA here and there but I have a hard time stoping my eyes from rolling. I guess it’s safe to say that I’m quite picky when it comes to YA. But I read it nonetheless, I just don’t do it often.
What books do you review? What do you prefer the most? And if you have a particular theme you post in your blog? Tell me! Comment down below and share! 🙂
