For awhile now I've thought about shutting down Coffee, Books and Laundry, it just wasn't fun anymore for me. I pressured myself into trying to write a review on every book I read, and well, some of those books I just didn't have much to say about them. Then I just stopped writing reviews altogether. After a while I started to miss it, and decided that I wouldn't be so hard on myself.
What I've decided to do is write reviews on books that I have something to say about and books that are given to me for review. Other books I read throughout the month will go in a monthly overview with a couple of sentences about what I thought of it. Occasionally I will do a meme if I feel like it that day, nothing will be structured though.
This year my husband and I are doing a husband/wife book club. Every month we pick a book we both will read and at the end of the month on a date night we discuss the book during dinner. My husband really isn't a reader, but he really wanted to try this and so far is enjoying it. On the sidebar is a list of books we've read so far. I'm thinking about having a dual review on those. I think it will be interesting to see both his and my thoughts on what we read that month.
My new mantra for this blog is "It's all for fun".
