Book reviews: June reads

Work in progress (1)Recently, I had a poll on my Instagram story asking if video book review postings would be something you were interested in. A few of you (hey, sis!), said that you would find it helpful, so I’m gonna give it a try!

Here’s your disclaimer, I’m a video novice. I’m learning this as I go. (For example, the first thing I learned is that I should have shot these videos in landscape. Whoops.) So, bear with me as I learn the ropes and up the production quality of these bad boys from month to month.

Here’s the plan

In each video segment, I will, show you the book cover, when possible (my digital loan expired on Talking as Fast as I Can by the time I shot this video, but I did pull up an image on the Interwebs!) what I found extraordinary, what I found lacking or frustrating, how long it took me to read it, whether or I would read more from the author and whether I would recommend it. I will also keep all of them to about 2 minutes. (Let’s face it, that’s testing our attention span as it is!)

I’ve also set up a dedicated page on the blog to house all of them, aptly named Book reviews. Pop over to the Book reviews tab whenever you are looking for your next book to read and skim through some of the videos! But you’ll also see them in a monthly post on the blog so you won’t miss a thing!

Without further ado…

Don’t forget to tell me what you think of these in the comments! Constructive criticism is much appreciated and encouragement if you’d like them to continue.
