I try and review a wide variety of films, from old to new, and throw in film reviews from the current year as well.

Book review anyone? Final post before returning to school

Well, recently in the month of August my posting rate is much, much lower than it usually is. Getting back to school, homework, and all that fun stuff has got me pretty busy. However, through these past few days I have gotten quite a bit of thinking done, and I am curious, what do any of you guys think about me throwing in some book reviews? I have been reading more than I usually do, and have even considered starting a second blog for books, which is still in consideration. Anyways, let me know what you think!

On a side note, movie review for "Get Low" is coming soon! But way shorter than my normal ones, I honestly don't have enough time to write long reviews anymore. It's a shame, I know.

  1. thats a tough one matt, your blog address is film reviews. would you change the name of the blog?

    i write my book reviews on goodreads.com, i like to keep my life compartmentalised though.

  2. If I decided to write them on here instead of an entirely new blog, yes I would change the name.

    Ah, okay. Yeah, i'm leaning toward just keeping this for movies and starting another blog.

  3. I find reviewing books a lot harder than movies. Good luck with that.

  5. I think a book review would be cool. I love to read so bring it on. I'm also looking forward to your Get Low review. That is truly an excellent film.

  6. I feel your pain. My blog has 'films' the address, and I can't change it without losing it all, even though I don't just write about films. Ah well...

    But book reviews - yes.

    My advice is to start another blog. But be warned two blogs is a lot of hard bloody work!! I started a fiction blog and find it hard going to write constant film and book reviews. I'm so far behind it is starting to feel like an unpaid job rather than a hobby! Unless the books you review are cinema related ( as I do ) it is best to have two blogs because if you mix the two the readers who read your blog solely for the film content may be turned away.
    Again be warned book reviews are difficult to write as on commentator has already stated and much harder than film reviews!
    But give it a go it can be rewarding even though at times all too time consuming.

  12. Keeping up two blogs is difficult, but not impossible :) I have about three blogs now, two for uni included in that deal :( Book reviews would be cool though :)
