They said 2015 was the year of the book blogger so I may be late to the party but that doesn’t mean I can’t give it a go.
Honestly reviewing books online is something I tried about 5 years ago back when live journal was still a thing you did, and then a year or so later on tumblr. But it was never something that I saw as more than a bit of fun and a way remember what happened in a book, what I liked and what I didn’t. But you know what? I’m going there hardcore this year, I had the best year ever in 2015 (getting married and going on the holiday of a life time will be hard to beat) but I didn’t read nearly as much as I would have liked. Thus this year’s challenge: a book a week, read and reviewed, by Sunday. I’m also going to do my best to backwrite other reviews starting with my favourites of 2015, hopefully I can fill the pages of this blog with something more than my inane ramblings.
If you’re wondering about the blog title it comes from something I’ve found myself repeating a lot lately; there’s a lake we stayed by in New Zealand which I absolutely fell in love with called Lake Tekapo. And from our balcony that night I could see more stars than I’d seen in my entire life put together, completely inspiring and it makes you feel so tiny and together with everything all at once. I also feel like it will be pretty apt for blogging as I admit to being a little bit of a star-driven reviewer!
My other intention for this blog is to keep up with my other goals for the year: primarily learning how to develop my own film but more besides, which I’ll leave for another post.
For now, though, sleep tight.
