Happy New Year! Here’s what I’ve got planned for the blog…
Book reviews! At least one a week. There will be the usual mix of ARCs, recent publications and older works. Often I’ll just read what I feel like, but I have at least a few planned. Look out for reviews of The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton, The Girl Next Door by Phoebe Morgan, The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary and The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal.
TV / film / stage reviews. I’d like to post about Doctor Who with an overview of all the ‘new’ series. I’m also going to watch and review every Simon Reeve documentary available on BBC iPlayer. What can I say, I like a challenge and I’m also a completist. I hope to write about films but they’d most likely be older ones.
Monthly series: ‘Recommended author’ (in which I, er, recommend an author) and ‘The time-travelling bookworm’ (in which I look back at what I was reading the same month but several years ago). I might even start another series of something else. Lucky you!
Random posts about writing. These basically mean that I’m procrastinating over my work in progress, a psychological thriller for which I want to finish the first draft this year.
Creative writing, using various items (books, music, souvenirs) as inspiration. I hope you like it – I’m aware that it won’t be as popular as my features about books, but my aim is to practice my writing and I would welcome any feedback.
I will also continue to promote my favourite things: books, cats and tea.
Oh, and I’ll continue to create dodgy images using my favourite software, Microsoft Paint. You’re welcome.
