Do you prefer to blog about (a) specific book genre(s), or do you have an eclectic blog?
This is a very interesting question for me because I seldom plan out which books I’m going to review before I read them. Sure, sometimes I have a book that I know I’ll want to talk about, but for me usually it just hits me as I’m reviewing the book that, hey, I’ve got enough to say about this book that I could totally write a review. Because that’s kind of a thing for me, if I have to fill out a review for a book, I need to be able to talk about it easily, I need the review to flow, otherwise it sounds fake and I’ll get impatient and stop.
That being said, I definitely focus on certain types of books because that’s what I read. On my blog you’ll see a lot of fantasy, sci-fi, steampunk and historical LGBT+ romances talked about and reviewed – though not because of any plans of my own but because that’s mostly what I read. (I have been known to binge read contemporary LGBT+ romances, too, on occasion, but I seldom have enough to say about them to warrant a full review.)
I guess, for me, the answer is kind of both. I mean, I do blog about specific genres, usually, but if I have something to say about a book, I will, regardless of the genre it fits in.
What’s your blog like? Do you have a preference?
