It's been forever since I've blogged here, I know. I've realized that after a year of this (well, almost) that I've had my fill of reading the books that are newly released and reviewing them here. I originally started this blog so that I could delve into the YA book blogosphere, keep my pulse on what was happening so that when I wrote I would be able to be fresh and not redundant.
I have met a ton of awesome bloggers and authors and others. I have been totally blessed to have loyal followers and friends because of this blog. I love you guys completely!
BUT DON'T WORRY
This is not to say that I'm closing down my blog. Not a chance. I am however hitting the reboot button and going in a new direction. I am going to begin focusing less on reviewing and shift more toward reading, writing, the blogosphere, authors (especially the wonderful indie authors you'll see featured this week), and YA books on the whole. I'll probably toss in the odd review here and there but it won't be the main idea behind my blog.
So basically, in a nut shell, my blog will become more about me and what I am interested in within the YA book world, as opposed to reporting on what and how I read. If that makes sense.
And I will not fault you if you decide to unfollow me. Not one bit. Blogging, for me, is about enjoying the process of producing content for people who want to read it. And for getting my thoughts out there. If you aren't interested in the new format that's perfectly okay! I hope you'll stay, but if not, I understand.
BREAKDOWN OF A REBOOT
That said, starting tomorrow I will be rebooting Into The Morning Reads with probably a slightly different name and kicking off my blogiversary month with a feature that is near and dear to my heart: Indie Author Week. Look forward to great slices of life from authors I love and think you should love too! Oh yeah, and I'll be announcing the winner of the Passion contest. Sorry it's taken me so long, you guys made it so tough for me to choose!
The next week I will be posting another feature near and dear to my heart as well: YA Bloggers Who Write YA Stories.
I will also be depositing the last of my reviews (for a while) in the third week. Watch for the following:
Kiss of Death by Lauren Henderson
Past Midnight Series by Mara Purnhagen
The Girl Who Was On Fire Edited by Leah Wilson
Ushers Inc. by Rusty Fisher
Want to Go Private by Sarah Darer Littman
Daily Blogiversary Giveaways
So that's a wrap I suppose. I love feedback so if you have any thoughts or questions, please feel free to leave me a comment!
