Warp Up (The One Where Some Invisible Decisions Were Made)

Okay, let me explain. By invisible, I just mean it probably won't be noticeable to anyone reading this blog. They are changes for the better, though, and they do affect the blog so I wanted to share what I have decided with all of you.

Basically, I feel like I've been cluttering up my blog again. I've felt this way before, and what it means is that quantity has started to take over for quality and I want this to be a quality blog so I need to change some things. You may have noticed I've been doing a lot of rereads lately, and I've been reviewing or at least reacting to those rereads, which I enjoy doing, but some of the books have already been reviewed on this blog before, so the rereads do very little for the content I post except to please myself. Instead of stopping rereading, I'm going to stop reviewing them (sort of).

I already have a few rereads going that I've been reviewing here and I don't want to cut off in the middle of the series (I'm talking about Harry Potter and Throne of Glass). Well, once I finish up those two you won't see any reread reviews unless one of two things happen:
1) I originally read the book so long ago that I actually don't remember what happened and want to continue with the series so I need to go back and get through the first one (or however many) again.
2) I reread a whole series and do a reaction to the whole series and not individual reviews.

Another change I'll be making is for every non-review I want to post (not counting WoW's and Wrap Up's) I have to post at least two reviews that same month. So, I want the ratio of review:non review to be 2:1. I love doing tags, college journey posts, and just discussion posts in general, but lately I feel like I do some not because they sound fun or I was tagged but also because I want to make sure something publishes nearly every day of the week. And when I do that I have less time to focus on reading and reviewing, which is the whole point of the blog. If a month truly is slow and I'm not reading much at all, I will bend this rule a bit, it's just that during months like this, where I read more than normal, that it really does hurt the blog to have so much excess, I feel. So, yeah, that'll be a change starting next month.

But that's what's going to be happening. Like I said, it's not going to be something super noticeable because it's behind the scenes things, but I feel like it's only fair to share with all of you. 

Finished This Week
I read so much! Like, an absolutely crazy amount. I'm so proud of myself :) I finished volume 15 of Noragami (so good!), finished rereading Crown of Midnight, and then read for the first time The Raven King (so many thoughts so many thoughts) and Thirteen Reasons Why (a book that I have very complicated feelings for). Reviews for The Raven King (both a spoiler and non-spoiler review) and Thirteen Reasons Why will be posting next month.

Currently Reading
I'll be rereading Heir of Fire, which will probably take up the bulk of the week since it's such a big book, and then I'll be picking up Ruin and Rising and finally finishing the Grisha trilogy (Nikolai here I come!)

How was your week? How do you feel about the changes? I'd love to hear your feedback!


  1. I love the reread rewiews ! :( but you got to do what you think is best ~ I can't wait for you review of Thirteen Reasons Why *.*

    1. I still think I'll do series' reactions because I do enjoy writing them most of the time, but they're definitely not going to be as frequent. I'm glad you like them, though!

      It's going to be such a hard review to write but I look forward to getting my thoughts all aligned!


Thank you so much for commenting! I love to hear from you and try to respond to comments once or twice a week. Thank you for your patience :)
