Thanks to anyone who still follows this blog. I make a goal every year to be more consistent about posting, and I’m hoping 2021 will be the year I can actually stick to it.
I’ve decided that book review blogs are pretty common, and I had a thought of something that I’ve never seen before but that I’ve always wished was available.
Instead of book reviews, book summaries.
Have you ever read a book, and then a year later the sequel comes out, and you find yourself reading the first few pages not remembering anything that happened in the last book? Or even having to go back and re-read the first book so you can get everything possible from the second one?
As much as I love re-reading books, I only get to 50-55 books a year, and I don’t have time to re-read the first book to every sequel that comes out.
I’m going to be writing a short, one paragraph review of the book, then write a summary of the book as a whole, which will include important plot points and a character list, along with a brief review of how the books end. Then when it’s time for the sequel, all I’ve got to do to refresh my memory is read the summary. Then I’m all ready for the next adventure.
For standalone novels or final books in a series, I’ll likely just post a review that is mostly spoilers.
This is something that might not be of use or interest to anyone but me, but I’m going to try them out.
Look out for Sarah’s Summaries, starting January 2021.
