Moving all of my book reviews to a new blog!
I've split this blog into 2 blogs with the other one named Bookshelves and Daydreams. I feel a little bit . . . strange having done this because change doesn't come easily for me. But I think in the long run, and probably the short run, this will streamline my blog posts in a way easiest for you, my readers.
Honestly, I hesitated to post book tags or participate in giveaways or write too many book reviews because I didn't want to irk some of my readers with too many "book related" posts. That will no longer be the case and so I can post about books, upcoming or classic, as often as I like for those of my readers who enjoy my book reviews and would like to see more of that ilk! So I'm finally, as I write this, letting some excitement start to flow.
I consider myself something of a Dustfinger lover from Inkheart and I thought of him a bit while making this change because he is so unrelentingly adverse to change. He never truly adapted to our world even after living in it for 10 years. Even though my beloved Dustfinger never overcomes his longing for the Inkworld, it doesn't mean I have to stick with the sameness of having just a single blog. Of course, if I were him and could manipulate fire into flower petals while in the Inkworld, I doubt I would be entirely pleased at being uprooted to our sad, ordinary world. No, not at all, and it is because I long to write posts about favorite literary characters, like Dustfinger, participate in read-alongs, be involved in giveaways, that I absolutely must do this split.
In fact, the split is already done. If you look back through my posts on this blog, you will find that all of the book reviews are gone. They have now migrated over to Bookshelves and Daydreams, and so it will be from this point onward. For those of you still interested in reading about faith related posts, movies, my personal life, and any ISFJ posts that I may have written in the past, feel free to continue reading this blog. I won't stop updating Musings of an Introvert, I promise. Different doesn't translate into bad, only a new chapter. Who would read books at all if there was no climax and the characters never learned anything? I am in the midst of my learning.
So I encourage you, if you have enjoyed my book reviews and would like to see more of them and other things regarding books as well, then hop on over to Bookshelves and Daydreams. Also, if you ever misplace this new blog link, just look over into my sidebar and you'll find a photo link to it, right under my profile.
Thanks again, everyone for all of your support, and I'm sure we'll go through many more years of blogging together.
