Hello lovely readers,
It may not have escaped your notice that over the last few months (since the beginning of the summer) the team at Big Book Little Book has not been posting as regularly as we once did. Unfortunately, due to increased demands in their personal lives we have had to say goodbye to three of our regular reviewers.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lesley (a founding member of bigbooklittlebook.com), Keith and Alison for all of their hard work and let them know that anytime they want to visit our door, and posting schedule, is always open.
With busy lives of our own, Helen, Pruedence, Sam and myself have found it difficult to maintain the tri weekly review schedule. In fact at times I have felt so overwhelmed by the increased workload that it completely spoilt the experience of blogging for me.
I couldn’t concentrate to write reviews (compounding the situation further) and I contemplated shutting Big Book Little Book down.
After lots of soul searching and chats/emails with the remaining members of the team, we have decided to continue. To remove some of the pressure we will be posting just two reviews a week. Kids reviews, picture books through to Middle grade, will be posted on a Monday. While Young Adult, New Adult and Adult book reviews will be posted on Fridays.
For additional content we will continue to host blog tours, independent and self published authors and our novel nibbles feature. We may also join in with some meme’s and take a more active role in the book blogging community, for example, taking part in more reading challenges and read-a-thons. However these will all be posted on a much more informal basis dependent on inspiration, enthusiasm and opportunity.
Some of that additional content I mentioned will be in the form of vlogs (video blogs).
I am really excited to announce that I have joined together with nine other experienced (not to mention amazing!) book bloggers from all around the UK, to create a brand new collaborative book tuber channel called Bookish Brits (Subscribe here).
Posting on Monday, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, we will be vlogging individually and together on a range of bookish things from news, reviews, tags and reactions to the book related topics close to our hearts.
I hope that you take the time to check out the channel and follow us on Twitter (here).
Lots of love, Caroline x
