Now I finally feel like I'm ready for some new books, for new adventures, new characters and new worlds. So I'm excited for the new week and the books I plan to read in it.
Other than that I'm excited because I will get a new layout for the blog next week. The wonderful Zoe from Chic & Sassy Designs is right now offering custom designs and I immediately signed up for one. The new layout will look a bit more simple and stylish, and I can't wait to get it.
Lately I have felt a bit disconnected from parts of the book blogger community. In the last months I did often not agree with what most other bloggers, at least the most vocal ones, seemed to think in times of conflict or drama (plagiarism cases excluded). This and some other things made me stop reading some blogs who seemed to be written mostly for other book bloggers and not primarily for "normal" readers. I see myself as a normal reader who, as a hobby, blogs about the good books she read. And I want to read about things that are interesting for all readers, so too many early reviews on books that have not been released yet, books I therefore can't share my opinion on, too many book blogger v. XYZ discussions don't interest me and sometimes even annoy me.
But of course there are a lot of book blogs out there that offer exactly what I want. It's great that the book blogger community offers something for every kind of reader. Sometimes you just have to invest some time to find the perfect blogs for you to read.
Have you lately discovered any new to you blogs, blogs that you think are great for "normal" readers? Then please let me know in the comments, I'm always interested in discovering new blogs that fit to my own interests.
How was your bookish week? What bookish things did you think about?
