So, in mid-January I started up another blog called A Winter Crafter. I thought it would be a good blog to showcase some of the other things I love to do when I’m not reading a book (which happens!). After a while, I realized that I wanted to share so much MORE on that blog and that the name had to change, so it became Winter Distractions.
Currently, Winter Distractions is a place where I can:
- share my love of cooking, crafting, TV, movies, writing, music, etc.
- discuss and muse about various non-bookish topics (like whatever happened to photo albums? or, in an upcoming discussion, my history when it comes to my music listening taste.)
- share my thoughts on TV episodes and on movies
- talk about the MANY things I’m addicted to (from music to TV to people)
Lately, though, I’ve been trying something new with my reading — reading classics! But I already read a TON of books and find that my reviews are always way ahead of me on Reading In Winter. I decided that I would keep Reading In Winter as the blog where I review YA books, adult contemporary, and other such fiction, and on Winter Distractions I’ll review classics, non-fiction, cookbooks, memoirs, and other similar books.
As of right now, I’m aiming for one review a week on Winter Distractions, while Reading In Winter will continue to have 3-4 reviews a week, discussions, and all the other accoutrements that come with the blog. Seeing as I’ve always wanted to read more classics, as well as memoirs, non-fiction and the like, this is a perfect thing for me!
So, if you like my reviews but want to see posts that AREN’T bookish as well, head on over to Winter Distractions! I’m hoping that I can maybe participate in some classic read-alongs on that blog, as well — AND the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge that is currently on Reading In Winter is being moved over there, as well. AND, if you’d like to guest review or post about something you’re crafty in, feel free to send me an email and we can chat!
